To avoid a too shiny effect, apply the foundation in thin layers, and make brush movements from top to bottom.
When the result is not quite smooth, the skin may not have been completely dry during application – make sure that your moisturizer or pre-applied care is completely absorbed into the skin before using. switch to makeup.
To select the right shade, it is useful to carry out a test beforehand: apply the foundation on the ridge of the jaw, going down to the neck, and watch the result obtained in daylight.
