No streaky base

Female (Malaysia) - - KATE SPECIAL -

WHEN WEAR­ING FOUN­DA­TION, A NAT­U­RAL-LOOK­ING COM­PLEX­ION IS WHAT WE ALL WANT TO ACHIEVE. TAKE A CUE FROM AC­TRESS UQASHA SENROSE FOR THE SE­CRET TO A FLAW­LESS BASE NO MAT­TER THE OC­CA­SION.

1. Sheer cov­er­age in the morn­ing

For a fresh and ra­di­ant fin­ish, Uqasha chooses a fair shade that matches her skin­tone (shade 00). Celebrity makeup artist Chu Fan says that the key to achiev­ing this look is to mix in a drop of mois­turiser or makeup base with your foun­da­tion, and ap­ply it on with your fingers. If nec­es­sary, gen­tly pat some foun­da­tion un­der your eyes to cover up the dark cir­cles in­stead of us­ing a con­cealer. Lightly dust loose pow­der with a brush to set it in.

2. Sun-kissed glow for a day out

Foun­da­tion has the abil­ity to brighten and pro­tect the skin even whilst ex­er­cis­ing. What’s even more im­por­tant is one that can last all day with­out mak­ing the skin oily. For a sun-kissed look, Uqasha picks a shade or two darker and ap­plies it all over her face in­clud­ing her neck, chest and shoul­ders. To pre­vent it from run­ning, she sets it with a pressed pow­der or bronzer in a darker shade and to fin­ish, she com­ple­ments the look with an om­bré lip.

3. Tanned and matte for a night out

Dare to be bold? If the fin­ish is flaw­less, then why not? Do it just like Uqasha, who uses The Base Zero in 05 for a night out. She looks more al­lur­ing in a darker com­plex­ion with a matte fin­ish. Here’s how to cre­ate it: use a sponge to pat the foun­da­tion (not spread) on your face. Then with a puff, us­ing the same tech­nique, pat the loose pow­der to set the foun­da­tion. Not matte enough? Switch your loose pow­der for a com­pact, dust it on with a brush and con­tour the cheek­bones for that sexy, bronzy look.
