    Hi, I am Tu-Anh with Polished by Tu-Anh Company. We are talking about creating a natural and flawless complexion in just minutes. Now, I am going to show you how to apply foundation.

    The first step that you would need is to choose the right foundation type and texture for your skin type and skin color and with Caitlin (ph), I am going to use a foundation stick and what you would need to do is just start with your T-zone, but on Caitlin (ph) she has beautiful flawless skin, so I am going to apply it lightly, over some of her T-zone areas. You always want to use a foundation brush, never use a sponge, or your fingers. It will be applied very naturally.

    You dont need to apply foundation all over your face. You only want to apply where the coverage is needed. Well cover some here, some of the redness, and some down here. Its always best to choose a foundation with a little bit of yellow in it because it actually neutralizes red and it would take the red away and it will match your skin just perfectly.

    As you can see, I am not applying it all over; I am just applying it in the T-zone area where you have most of the redness. We are going to cover just a little bit there. Thats how you apply foundation. We are now ready to start with powder.
