Applying foundation successfully can be tricky, so we've
created a quick guide to show you how to apply perfect
foundation in three easy steps:

1. PICK YOUR PERFECT SHADE
For the majority of skins a liquid foundation
creates a more balanced finish, but the best
way to decide what suits you is to do a test-run.
Rather than trying your desired shade on the
back of your hand, apply it along your jaw line using
a soft foundation brush -preferably in broad daylight.
If it 'disappears' into your skin without too much
blending, then it's the right tone for you. If in doubt,
pop into one of our stores or host a The Body Shop
At Home™ party
where one of our professional
consultants will be able to advise you.

2. PREP YOUR FACE
To ensure your skin will act as the perfect canvas for
your make-up, cleanse, tone and moisturise, leaving a
good five minutes before applying any product. Add a
dab of primer to your cheeks and forehead if you
worry about the size of your pores.

3. GET PERFECT COVERAGE
If you only require a light coverage to help camouflage redness,
even out your complexion or disguise pimples, simply use your
fingers to target your chosen areas. For a more complete finish,
apply a pea-sized amount of foundation to each cheek and blend
outwards using a brush or sponge.
