When match­ing foun­da­tion to your skin tone, test it along your jaw­line for the per­fect fit.

‘Make-up wears dif­fer­ently on all ar­eas of the face, so the trick to flaw­less, longer-last­ing foun­da­tion is to use vary­ing tex­tures and shades,’ says Syd­ney­based hair and make-up artist Rani Short­land. ‘Just us­ing one shade of foun­da­tion will look like a mask.’ Here are the ex­pert’s top tips… 1 Ap­ply primer fol­lowed by a tinted mois­turiser to hy­drate the skin and in­fuse it with colour. 2 Use a brush to ap­ply a full-cov­er­age foun­da­tion (half a shade lighter than your skin tone) un­der the eyes and T-zone area, and fol­low with a fine sweep above the jaw. 3 Dust loose face pow­der over the top. The fine matte tex­ture will keep your skin look­ing sheer but pol­ished. 4 Dust min­eral pow­der – in a slightly warmer/ deeper shade than your nat­u­ral skin tone – on your tem­ples, back of the cheek­bones and tip of the chin. This cre­ates ad­di­tional tex­tures and def­i­ni­tion. 5 Buff your en­tire face with a large pow­der brush. h. Voila! Per­fectly pol­ished skin.
