If you are into your makeup as I am you will be aware of the latest in foundation.
The foundation sticks.
But what are the pros of swapping to a stick and does it work for everyone?
I’ve compiled some of the benefits to this multi-functional product.
Build your coverage
If you’re someone who likes to build up the coverage to your face makeup or you’re going from day to night, a foundation stick is a key product to add to your makeup bag. Lightweight and creamy the formula to a foundation stick makes reapplying super easy to do. So, whether you prefer a no make up make up look or full out glam you can achieve both with the stick.
This for me is the main reason why I love them. Whether you use it just as a foundation or wish to use it for concealer or contour you can achieve it all with different shades.
I love a foundation stick in a darker shade to my foundation to help contour my cheeks, forehead, and jawline. I also like a stick in a shade lighter to use under the eyes as a concealer.
Easy to blend
Super easy to work with, whether you are a makeup pro or not you can achieve it all with a foundation stick.
For an even more natural look use a damp beauty blender to blend seamlessly into the skin. The creamy, flexible formula of a stick foundation seamlessly blends into the skin with little effort, and the easy-to-use, long-lasting nature of foundation sticks makes them the perfect base all year round.
My ultimate tip for working with a foundation stick over a liquid, is do not skip your skincare, make sure you start with the best canvas possible ensuring your skin is hydrated and fully moisturized. If you find you have an oily skin type you may find a foundation stick to be the answer to all your prayers!
Ultimately, If you’re looking for a fuss free way to complete your make up in the morning or you’re a busy mum with no time on your hands, you may find swapping to a stick the ideal compromise. By swapping to a stick from a liquid you cut down pressure time blending yet you will still end up with a flawless makeup look.
