Foundation is 'a natural makeup essential'

Foundation is
Foundation is the key to creating an Oscar-worthy look, according to the head makeup artist for the 2010 Academy Awards.

Women may want to make sure they have a decent product in their natural cosmetics bag as Bruce Grayson said that fabulous makeup begins with the perfect base.

'To get blemish-free skin, opt for a foundation that delivers the perfect level of pigment,' he recommended.

The Oscars saw plenty of celebrities going for a natural look, with pared-down makeup and nude lips, and correct application of foundation is an important part of creating this effect.

Mr Grayson said the product should be applied with a brush, using short, quick strokes to create a flawless finish.

Women can then work on adding dimension to the face and cheeks. For this they will need natural cosmetics like a soft blush in a pink or peach shade.

'To apply, simply dust the apples of your cheeks with a big, fluffy brush, blending outward toward the hairline,' he said.
