Video QuickTip #41 - September 29, 2009

Foundation is tricky - we want a smooth and even skintone, but we don't want to look like we're wearing a mask!

Brett gives us the secret behind the flawless faces on the red carpet with this foundation trick.

You need three things:

1. A good, graduated brush - Brett likes the MAC 107 graduated brush.
2. Misting water - try Paul Mitchell brand or Evian Misting Water from the drugstore.
3. LORAC Natural Performance Paraben-Free, Oil-Free Foundation - Brett loves the light and sheer vibe of this foundation. And as a bonus - it has a cool dispenser pump!

Pump a little foundation onto your hand. Lightly mist the top of the brush with the misting water and swirl into the foundation which thins it to the perfect consistency. Gently sweep the foundation all over the face with the brush - forehead, eyelids, under eyes, cheeks, chin, and down onto the neck to make sure everything is even.

This combo is the KEY to a polished finish!
