Trend #7: Foundation Challenge
This challenge is ALL about the foundation, the more the better. Meredith Duxbury went viral posting this excessive foundation makeup routine on Tik Tok. It’s always recommended, but optional, to start with Skincare and a primer. A thick layer of foundation is then added using a makeup brush and rubbed into facial skin using both hands. Once this sets, add a full additional layer of foundation, before completing the rest of your makeup.
Simply put, it’s a layering effect that results in full, flawless coverage. Use the YouCam Makeup foundation feature, which includes face and shade detection technology, to find your perfect foundation shade match.
