Step1: 【base】

Base makeup is very important. In order to make “a beautiful skin that looks like there isn’t makeup”, it is important to hide the skin troubles with the base. If you try to hide freckles, blowouts, dullness, etc. with a foundation, it will be thick and far from natural makeup. If you want to hide something, you can hide it by partially applying a concealer. By thoroughly applying a makeup base, a fresh and glowing natural skin is completed. The base makeup is more important than the foundation! Let’s see how to do it.

Or, it is also good to apply intensively to areas of concern such as pores.
