Are you also struggling with getting a makeup look with a perfect finish? Then you are on the right page. Below we have mentioned some suggestions for some makeup problems that can be faced on a day to day basis.
Any makeup when turns out to be flakey, breaking up or uneven can be called patchy or cakey. There can be many reasons when your makeup can turn out to be patchy.
One of the reasons is applying too much foundation. The best way to avoid this lumpy look is to blend well with a wet sponge or a dense buff.
Another reason for a cakey look can be not applying primer before the foundation. There are many types of primers available in the market. It can be a serum that can hydrate your face or it can be a sunscreen that reduces the appearances of pores and smoothens your skin. But the most common, proven to be effective is a silicone based primer that evens the skin and gives a tackiness to the skin which makes your makeup adhere to it better and last longer. PULP MVP Daily Sunscreen + Primer 50 SPF has the benefits of primer and sunscreen. It's non- sticky, fragrance free and has the goodness of hyaluronic acid that keeps your skin moisturized.
An important part to remember about fixing the patchy foundation look is to select a foundation that is suitable for your skin type. Dry skins work well when they are paired with foundations having hydrating qualities like hyaluronic whereas skins that are prone to acne, redness, or eruptions benefit from using color-correcting foundations that have a mattified look.
Similarly, there are foundations that absorb excess oil from the oily skin and give a good finish to the skin.
