It is very important to be able to apply makeup correctly, because it should look natural, and not like a stretched mask. Tone is a must-have when creating natural makeup! Even perfect makeup will look unfinished without tone.
So, the tone fits well on smooth skin. So you need to take care of your face - scrub your skin twice a week. You can add ground coffee to ordinary liquid soap for a good homemade scrub.
Before applying the tone, wipe the skin with an ice cube, lotion or toner. This is necessary so that the base is light evenly over the entire surface of the skin. Then apply a light cream, wait - it should be absorbed. The foundation must be selected so that its color is as close as possible to the natural skin color. Without this, there is no way - otherwise you will have to apply the tone on the neck too, otherwise the color difference will be too obvious.
Apply a lighter shade of tone under the eyes. It should be applied with a damp sponge - this way the product will last longer on the skin. Apply a drop of the product under each eye - no more is needed! Next, you need to distribute it over the skin. You can use a remedy for bags under the eyes that contains more pigment than your main tone.
Now take the main tone as close as possible in color to your skin tone. Apply a couple of drops to cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, rub gently all over the skin. You need to rub in with light movements - do not stretch the skin! Try not to leave jagged areas, visible lines.
The foundation will fit more tightly when applied with a sponge. This is more an option for an evening make-up. Fingers get a thinner layer - invisible on the skin. This option will be preferable for daytime makeup, as well as for skin without visible problems.
Be sure to wait about five minutes after applying the tone, then apply the powder. Use a brush made from natural fibers. Lightly brush off excess powder with a puff.
That's all - the skin is ready, you can proceed to applying the makeup itself! But half the battle has certainly been done - an even tone will guarantee a good make-up.
