4) Primer is a key for key for making your makeup last long .  

Primer is really important you must be knowing this but , do you know that what kind of primer goes with what kind of foundation ,  literally I didn't know this for a really long time , but thanks to the internet and some of the amusing beauty influencers who introduced me to the different kinds of primer available in the market . Basically there are 2 kinds of primer - 1) hydrating primer , 2) silicon based primer / mattifying primer . Ok now if you know what's the difference between all of them , than that's good for you , but if you are new to primers than , I will give you a short intro of all  of them .

1) hydrating primer - hydrates your face enough so that the foundation doesn't cling on to you dry patches and increases the longevity of the foundation . You can use a hydrating primer underneath a matte foundation or a dewy foundation but not underneath a silicon based foundation .You can use a water based primer best with water based foundation

2) Silicon based primer / mattifying primer - fill in your pores and makes them appear smaller than actually are . Also gives a smooth surface to work with . You can use a silicon based primer underneath a silicon based foundation .

5) Color correcting / concealing is important if you have dark spots 

What if you apply the right type and shade of foundation , but still can't help with those blemishes peeking through ?

6) Now comes the foundation part 

It is necessary that you choose the right shade of foundation if you want your makeup to look natural and skin like . 

The trick here is to choose a shade lighter than your actual skin tone , so that when the foundation oxides or react on your skin after some time it will become a shade darker and be a perfect match for you .
