I used to go to the gym. Like I was a proper exerciser – I’m talking four times a week.
And while my gyms and the type of training and classes changed over the years, I always went first thing in the morning before work.
I haven’t exercised properly in a few years and sure, I could go into why here, but this would then quickly descend into a therapy session when I know you’re all here to get to the bit about foundation.
We take a peak through Leigh Campbell’s beauty bag. Come along for the ride.
Training early and then getting ready in the gym bathroom before work meant I got to observe many different women and their grooming habits.
I was kinda like the beauty version of David Attenborough.
And what I noticed about other women’s makeup application while I was doing mine (I swear I wasn’t perving or stalking, you kinda just observe things in your peripheral) was how they put on their foundation.
Quite a few women apply liquid foundation in the same way they apply moisturiser. So they’ll squirt out a few pumps, rub it between their fingers and then swipe it over their face somewhat haphazardly and rub it in.
This is not technically wrong, and please know, I am not here to shame anyone. If applying eyeshadow to the backs of your knees makes you happy, go for you life. But if you are applying your foundation as above, the below tips might help you save some product and make your complexion look a little more flawless.
