How to Avoid Cake Face- Tips for Beginners

10:10 AM


Happy Monday! Cake face is something that we've all experienced at one point or another, and I think we can all agree that it's not cute. There's many different causes, and it can get overwhelming trying to figure them out by trial and error. Here's some tips that I use when I apply my makeup so it doesn't cake up.


No matter what type of skin you have, moisturizing is very important! Dry skin will make your makeup go on uneven. Also, if there's dry patches on your skin, makeup will tend to cling on to them, which will result in it caking up.


Using a primer will give your skin a clean, even surface to apply your makeup to. The one I like to use is the Benefit Professional. This helps fill in my pores to give my skin a flawless-looking surface. This also helps my makeup stay on longer so I won't have to apply a lot of powder later in the day, which can cake up.


When applying foundation, the term "less is more" is completely true. It's better to add a little at a time to build it up evenly, rather than piling it on which can cause it to cake up fast. Once you have an even layer, if there's a place on your face you feel like you need coverage in one spot, just apply it to there instead of doing a whole extra layer. Also, for the application, I personally prefer to use a beauty blender. The beauty blender is a sponge that you use damp, so it will soak up excess product.


Just like foundation application, when applying concealer, use a small amount and build it up as you need. Since concealer tens to be a thicker consistency, it can cake up very fast. I also like to use a beauty blender to blend it in. Just like the foundation, this will help soak up excess product.


Powder application is just like the liquids and you guessed it, less is more. Since I use a primer, I only use it to set the makeup by applying a very thin layer.

In the video below, I go over these tips and show you how I apply my face makeup so it doesn't cake up!
