How to fix cakey Makeup
It’s possible that you have put on too many foundations. Perhaps the powder that you used to get rid of that stubborn shine on your forehead didn’t work as well as you thought. What was the result? What did you get? The result? To fix your skin, you don’t have to start over. You can make things smoother with products such as blotting papers or moisturizers on the go.
Method1: Blotting Paper
- To remove any oil, use a blotting sheet. Do not press downward on the paper. This will cause oil to seep into your skin, causing breakouts. Blotting paper is, as the name suggests, for gently rubbing off excess oil.
- Oily areas such as your T-zone (your forehead and nose) should be taken care of.
- If you don’t have blotting paper, a clean makeup sponge is possible.
- Apply concealer to the areas that require it. Although the blotting sheets will not strip your foundation, they may affect your concealer’s coverage. Apply the blotting sheets again, but blend in thoroughly.
- Apply 2 to 3 pumps setting mist all over your face. This mist acts as hairspray and helps to set your makeup. It holds everything in place. You can make it waterproof or sweat-proof for extra protection. Spray the spray by shaking it and keeping it between 8-10 inches (20-25cm) from your face.
- Avoid powder if possible. The powder can dry out your skin and cause flaking.
Method 2: Apply moisturizer
- Spray your skin with a light mist to balance dry skin. Look for one that contains glycerin or essential oils. Avoid sprays that are only water-based as they can dry out your skin.
- To rebalance your skin, use a mist specifically labeled. The mist should provide moisture, as well as reduce inflammation and irritation. Rosewater is a great choice as it can fulfill both of these needs.
- 2. Use a moisturizer if you don’t have powder. You want to replenish the moisture in your foundation. It is important to choose moisturizers that have a lighter texture but are not too heavy or too thin. Hydroxylic acid is a water-based moisturizer that is great. Avoid products that are oil-based.
- Moisturizers that are powdered will not work on powdered skin.
- Moisturizers can decrease foundation coverage.
- It is a good idea for your skin to be protected from the damaging effects of the sun by using a moisturizing cream with SPF.
- Use a little moisturizer on your skin. Use a foundation brush to apply the moisturizer. Concentrate on flaky or patchy areas.
- To remove excess moisturizer, use a damp makeup sponge. You can use this sponge to absorb oil and makeup products. It can be used to absorb foundation and moisturizers.
- The sponge can be used to blend the foundation if it is creased or flaked.
Method3 Use a sponge to remove the product
- To absorb any extra oil from your skin, use a tissue. You should not rub the tissue on your skin. It could cause too much oil to build upon your skin. You should only lightly rub the tissue in areas that are oily.
- Make sure to wet the makeup sponge. Be sure to not get it too wet. A damp sponge can make it easier to apply the foundation to your face.
- It is much easier to blend your makeup with a damp sponge. A dry sponge never blends.
- Use the makeup sponge to remove any cakey areas. The sponge will absorb the excess product and blend it better. The sponge can be used to press the product into your skin. This will reduce flaky effects.
