    Hi! I am Tu-Anh with Polished by Tu-Anh Company. We are talking about achieving the natural and flawless complexion in just minutes and now I am going to show you how to apply foundation. Before we begin, you would need to have the right foundation texture type for your skin color and skin type.

    This is summer and so, Rea (ph) has a little bit of normal to oily skin, so I am going to choose a foundation stick because the liquid is going to be a little bit too oily and then you would need a foundation brush.

    So, what we are going to do is I am going to start with the T-zone and thats where we usually get the most red or unevenness and I am just going to gently apply and blend it in and do you see this, the color matches her skin tone perfectly. Then a little bit on the nose where some of the redness is. You always want to use a brush to apply foundation. Never use a sponge, its going to come on too heavy and also you dont want to use your fingers. The brush is very gentle on the skin. Then now, I am going to apply some around the cheeks and if you can see, it starts to blend in perfectly with the skin, so, you never want to apply foundation on the throat or the neck, or anything. If you choose the right color it would just blend in. Wow! You are starting to look flawless already. Close a little bit, just going to even your eyes a little bit.

    Thats how you apply foundation and now, we are going to start with powder.
