Instead of the way we're used to being told how to apply foundation: start from the centre of the face and blend outwards towards the perimeter of the face, Saem Mool recommends the opposite. She says a heavier application of foundation on the outer edges of your face works better because the skin is “thicker”, and a thinner layer of foundation in the centre — such as under the eyes, around the mouth and chin — works best because the skin around these areas is “thinner". If you apply this way, she says it gives you a more natural and dewy finish.
For an added glow, apply brightening or highlighting powder on the inner areas (thin) and a mattifying loose powder on the outer (thick) areas.
