Avoiding Cakey Makeup; 5 Tips To Fix Cakeing

Having cakey makeup is a situation that we have all experienced at some point in our lives. Over the years, there have been many misconceptions surrounding what causes this problem and what can be done to fix it. Maintaining flawless makeup is all about a combination of the right products, formulas and the amount of product you use. Implementing these 5 tricks into your beauty routine will ensure your makeup is long-lasting and will help avoid looking cakey.

1. Use layers of setting spray

Setting spray is one of the most effective products in reducing caked makeup especially for those with oily skin. By spraying between layers of powder products, the spray will help melt the powder into the skin and minimise residue.

2. Blend every step of the way

Blending is super important not just for liquid products but for powders too. The pigment should be blended which will indicate that the powder has seamlessly integrated into your base without any leftover. Ensure all product is soaked in using your fingers, a brush or a makeup sponge.

3. Hydrate Before Makeup Application

Applying a hydrating base can make all the difference in the final finish of your foundation. Before applying any base products be sure to use a thin layer of moisturiser and sunscreen. You can even take it one step further by creating a tinted moisturiser that combines all these products into one!

4. Powder your skin before foundation

One of the latest makeup trends has been applying a loose setting powder over primer before putting on your foundation. This step reduces excess oil and creates a barrier on the skin blocking any further oil from mixing with the foundation once it melts into the skin.

5. Pair the right formulas together

It may come as shock to some people that the combination of primer and foundation you use can make or break your makeup look. This is because the formulation of both these products should be matching in order for them to work together. If you are using a silicone-based primer your foundation should also contain silicone and the same for water based products.
