The Unique Foundation Trick Celebrities Swear By To Look 10 Years Younger

For red carpet events, celebrities look flawless all around but the one area that always seems to impress people the most is their impeccable foundation application. Despite the blistering heat, inevitable sweat, and long hours of award shows, they never look less than perfect.

Coming from someone who applies their makeup every morning before work and has to touch it up by lunchtime (or risk looking like I melted), I’m always wondering what their secret is. A good primer is obvious, and of course, a long-wear setting spray, but that can’t be it!

Megan Luman, celebrity makeup artist and Mehron Senior Editor, told us a unique trick she uses on her clients for smooth foundation application that transforms them to look practically 10 years younger.

“One technique is to highlight and contour with 2-3 shades lighter and darker FIRST,” said Luman. “It’s okay to create harder lines because the next step is to use a foundation color that matches the skin and buff it in a circular motion.”

NYX Professional Makeup and Brushes ($13.99)

“By using a dual fiber brush (usually black and white bristles), blends everything together making the highlights and contours look like they are actually coming from the bone structure of the face, not the makeup,” she said.

Celebre Loose Mineral Finish Powder Light/Medium Mehron Pro HD Finishing Matte ($13.72)

“Then I use Mehron Celebré Pro-HD™ Mineral Finishing Powders. This technique gives a youthful appearance because it doesn’t look like they have a lot of makeup on.”
