The basic principle is to apply foundation so that it looks medium to high.

A straight nose and a middle-to-high face looks three-dimensional and beautiful. The face that is considered beautiful or cute changes with the times, but this “middle school” is the only condition of beauty that has not changed since the Edo period.
You can’t change your facial shape to a middle-aged face with cosmetics, but you can make it look like a middle-aged face depending on how you apply foundation. To do this, we will use the principle that if the skin color is bright, the light hits it and makes it look taller, and the darker shadows make the height more emphasized. In a nutshell, a mid-high is achieved by lightening the center of the face and darkening the outside.
[Basic painting method for medium and high finish]
After applying the foundation from (1) the forehead to (2) the bridge of the nose, (3) from the bottom of the eyes to the top of the cheekbones, spread it outward. If you add foundation when you spread it, it will become brighter, so please spread it like a sponge or stretch the foundation left on your skin.
Adjust the nostrils, and finally (4) brighten the bottom of the mouth.
Apply just enough to remove the dullness under the nose, as it looks unhealthy. Also, if you brighten the cheeks below the nose, the cheeks will look saggy, so be careful.
When applying foundation, be careful not to rub the sponge against your skin or apply pressure. Please try to use a gentle touch, such as stroking, with the image of covering your skin.
The correct color is one tone lighter than the skin color
In your 50s, your skin is getting yellowish, so choosing a color is important. Some people apply it on the back of their hands when they try a sample, but this is a mistake. Your neck is yellow and your cheeks are red, so apply it under your less tanned cheeks and choose a color that matches.
Since the skin color of the face is not uniform, it is a little extravagant, but it is recommended to match the original skin color and the one tone lighter color. In this case, first apply a foundation of the original skin color around the face to eliminate uneven skin tone. Next, apply a one-tone lighter color to the middle and high areas to easily create a three-dimensional face.
If you want to finish with just one color, choose one that is one tone lighter than your original skin tone. In this case, instead of applying the foundation evenly over the entire face, apply it to the mid-to-high areas and then blur it outward in a gradation.
More beautiful with the effect of makeup base!
Makeup bases have a variety of roles, such as increasing the brightness of the skin, hiding pores and blemishes, and improving the adhesion of foundation to prevent makeup from coming off. If you try to manage these with foundation alone, it will be thick, so use the base well.
Each product has its own characteristics, so please choose the one that suits your concerns, such as overall dullness, partial blemishes, or dark circles under your eyes.
The shape (texture) you choose will change depending on the part you care about. The stiff stuff in the tube is pinpointed for parts that move but don’t wrinkle. A liquid type that is soft and spreads well is used for areas that move frequently.
Since the base is made on the premise that foundation will be applied on top of it, it is a good idea to choose the same brand as the foundation.
Next time, I will talk about how to use the popular foundation while actually trying it out.
