We have all been there! A thin layer of foundation or concealer applied, looks like a 100 layers all together! Cake makeup is a very disturbing thing because it makes your face look not so neat and far away from perfection. However, there are some causes and their solutions that we have today on how to prevent cake makeup.

Foundation and Concealer



These two, should never be used in a big quantity! In fact, many of us were never blessed with the smooth, perfect skin that we see on commercials. Which leads us to the over use of foundations and concealers. Well, ladies, this is not the solution! Instead of layering your foundation, use a beauty blender or a brush which help you have full coverage without looking cakey!

Thick Foundation



When your foundation has been in your makeup kit for a long time, it tends to become thicker. First, check its date, if it is more than a year, throw it away; if it is not, and still thick, add a few drops of facial oil so that it becomes thinner.

Putting on too much powder on top of your foundation is one of the main factors that cause cake makeup. In fact, girls with oily skin think that too much powder will absorb the oil. As a matter of fact, powder does absorb the oil, but an excess amount will lead to cakey like makeup. The solution to this, is using a “mattifying” primer prior to foundation application. However, if you feel like you should use powder, apply it only on your T-zone but be careful not to apply too much of it.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is why your makeup looks flaky and uneven on your face, which makes it form lumps on the places where dryness occurs the most. The solution for this is, prior to applying foundation, hydrate your skin with a cream or with face oils.

Foundation; do it like a pro


Foundation has come a long way since our mothers used to wear it back in the 60s. Back then, they used to be cakey, mask alike, and obviously visible. However, in our days, it is becoming to look and feel just like a moisturizer. Have you ever wondered why does celebrities always have a perfect looking skin? Or how do they put on their foundation? The answer is with us. Here is how to master your foundation, and how to make it look flawlessly natural.

Step number 1: find the perfect color


A mistake women do frequently when looking for a new foundation is, they test it on their faces. In fact, the product should be tested on your jawline, and if it disappears without you trying to blend it, it means this is the right color for you. Moreover, if you do not want to spend too much money on it, take a sample from the beauty store, and go to the drug store to find the closest match.

Step number 2: prep your skin before application



Always use a moisturizer before applying your foundation. Moreover, experts say that you need to wait five minutes before applying so that the moisturizer can sink in.

Step number 3: apply it the right way


You can either use a sponge or your fingers, it depends on how much coverage you want. If you want a little coverage, use your fingers. However, if you are looking for a lot of coverage, use a sponge.

Do not make the mistake of concealing after foundation, because this way your skin will look fake and you will look like a panda but the other way around.

Step number 5: finish with a powder


Do not keep your skin without powder, because powder can make it look Matt and as a result flawless and smooth.
