Exfoliating is one of the best ways to even out your skin tone. If you do not exfoliate regularly, there is a chance your skin will be covered in dead skin cells that will make your skin look dull and old. Applying a foundation will not smoothen your skin and the moisturizer won’t soak in properly without proper exfoliation. Therefore, it is essential for you to exfoliate your skin in order to even out your skin tone.
Prep The Face
Another simple way to add a spark to your dry face and brighten up your skin tone is to apply foundations and tinted moisturizers. You can either even out your skin with a primer having ‘sun protection factor’ (SPF) or can use a moisturizer with SPF. Nevertheless, make sure that the SPF is at least 15 in any product you use.
Using the right foundation shade can also work wonders to prep up your skin tone. Choose the foundation shade depending on your skin tone. Applying foundation after exfoliation is quite simple since the skin is now silky. It is better to use a tint that is either a shade lighter or darker than your natural complexion. Applying a good quality foundation will not only help complement your complexion, but will also cover up other skin conditions such as blemishes, blackheads and age spots.
Concealers And Powders
A foundation will take care of your cheeks, but in order to hide the dark circles and wrinkles, a concealer is what will come in handy. Pat the concealer gently over the skin for it to cover affected areas properly. You should choose a shade that is a bit darker than your skin tone; otherwise it won’t be able to cover up the marks. It is also important to use good quality powder. Using powder will provide a good makeup base and will secure the effect of the concealer.
Prep The Lids
Applying a lid base to your eyelids is more essential than you applying eye-shadows. Applying the lid base will even out the skin complexion. A base of primer created for the eyelids will make your entire skin tone even.
Bring Back Some Color
After working on your skin tone you will notice that your skin has lost a little color. You can bring back the color of your skin by applying a bronze or a creamy blush. Apply the bronzing powder with a big brush on your face, and follow it with a creamy blush on the apple of your cheeks. This will get back your face color.
One of the most important and easiest of all methods to even out your skin tone is to consume ample amount of water and stay hydrated always. Drinking plenty of water will also help keep your skin’s elasticity intact thereby providing you with a better complexion.
