    Everything in this slideshow

    • A Perfect Match

      Problem: You choose your foundation color by matching it to the skin on your arm and it doesn't seem to blend into your face.

      Solution: The skin on the inner part of your arm hasn't had the sun exposure your face has, so the color is not the same. Ask if you can test it directly on your face.


    • Stay on Target

      Problem: You apply foundation all over.

      Solution: Skip your eyelids and ears -- they don't need makeup.

    • Get a Smooth Start

      Problem: Your makeup seeps into pores and lines.

      Solution: Prep skin with a primer, which fills in all the nooks and gives makeup something to grip onto.

    • Know When to Toss

      Problem: Your foundation is over a year old.

      Solution: Pitch it. Oxidation causes the shade to darken and it may be harboring bacteria.

    • A Fresh Palette

      Problem: Your skin appears mask-like.

      Solution: If your makeup looks too heavy, it's best to wash it off and start again.

    • Blending Basics

      Problem: Your makeup stops at the jawline.

      Solution: Be sure to brush a little foundation on the neck area. You don't want your face to be one color and your neck another.

    • Better Bronzing

      Problem: You use a darker foundation to look tanned.

      Solution: Stick with your regular shade, and warm the tone with bronzer.

    • Mirror Check

      Problem: Halfway through the day, you notice streaks in your foundation.

      Solution: Take the time to take a quick look in the mirror and rub out errant foundation streaks before you leave the house.

    • Dry Skin Fix

      Problem: Your skin is dry and flaky.

      Solution: Mix a drop of moisturizer into your foundation.

      The Cardinal Rule

      Problem: No matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to achieve a perfect application.

      Solution: You may have forgotten the cardinal rule of foundation -- it should enhance skin, not conceal it.
