illgiveyousumluck asked: What are some good products to help make texture not so noticeable.
Hi there :)
Two things, exfoliation and primer!
Exfoliation will slowly fix the problem making your skin more smooth, even in texture, helps with acne, helps eliminate dry patches, helps shrink pores, etc. Exfoliation will help your skin look and feel better overall. If your skin is uneven in texture due to dry patches, acne scars/indented scars, large pores, acne, etc exfoliating will remove the dead, dry and not so nice skin. Exfoliation will make your skin more smooth and radiant with one use and over time help eliminate dark spots, shrink pores and overall skin health. Try using something like Olay Microdermabrasion Kit, one of my all time favorite exfoliating products. It’s not even every day scrub it’s an intense, once a week or once every two weeks type a deal, your skin will feel like a baby’s bottom! However any face scrub or chemical exfoliant will do the job.
Primer is great for creating an even surface under foundation. Silicone, gel like primers are great for smoothing over the skin, almost creating a second layer of skin under your makeup. A smoothing primer glides over pores, dry patches, acne so your foundation will go on more smooth and even. Try primers like Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer or ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer.
- Translucent powder instead of pressed powder. Translucent powder is super silky and finely milled which can help blur imperfections and make the skin look more smooth. Some pressed powders can look too cakey and make the texture of the skin look even worse!
- Use a flat top foundation brush or makeup sponge to apply foundation. Using a traditional foundation “paint brush” or fingers isnt always the most flattering if you have uneven texture you want to cover. A sponge or flat top brush gives the most flawless, blended finish.
- Pat and press. When applying powder press the powder into the skin instead of swirling all over. This helps conceal uneven texture a bit and look more flawless.
