Ditching Exfoliation

This is the first and most important tip- Exfoliate your face! Before covering any part of your face you need to have the base i.e your skin smooth, if you don’t exfoliate you’ll just have an uneven covering. Exfoliation helps to remove the dead cells easily. When you have uneven and dead cells on the skin, the makeup will not blend easily, making your face look cakey.

Dab dab &  no blend

Would you go out with one perfect winger liner and another one looking like a panda? I doubt you will. Blending is the key to achieving a flawless and stunning look. Once you have applied the concealer on the pigmented area, you should blend it properly so that it matches your skin tone. So, blend it for that perfect look.
