About the Expert
Hi there, my name is Brooke and I'm your Beauty Expert. Today, I'm going to demonstrate for you how to put foundation on sensitive skin. So, the products you'll need for this are a foundation formulated for sensitive skin, a foundation brush to apply the product and a short full short bristled brush to blend the product around edges. Something to keep in mind when you're shopping for a foundations for sensitive skin is to look for the keywords oil free or fragrance free. My favorite type of foundation for sensitive skin are ones that happen to be water-based. This is the most natural and lightest feeling of foundations you can get. You still get great coverage from it, but you don't have to worry about any irritation coming up. So, I'm going to take a little bit of my water-base foundation and I'm going to put a few droplets onto my palette. Then, take your foundation brush and start by applying a little bit of the product to the brush. With water-base foundations, they tend to not have any excess creams or emollients that sometimes help for the foundation to go on streak-free. So, initially if you apply, you might notice that you have some streaks with the foundation brush. So, you maybe tempted to use your fingertips to apply the product, but using a clean brush is going to help stay away from any bacterias that can be harsh on sensitive skin. So, once you have good coverage with the product, then, you want to take your soft short bristled full brush with no product on it and in circular motions, lightly buff on top of the foundation you just applied to soften the application and buff away any streakiness that have might come through. So once again, that's how to apply makeup for sensitive skin using your water-base foundation, your foundation brush for the application and your soft short brush to blend the product in. I'm Brooke, I'm always happy to help. Thank you so much for watching.
