The Real Reason Why You Should Shake Your Foundation Before Using It

The Real Reason Why You Should Shake Your Foundation Before Using It

Without reading the instructions on my foundation bottle, I used to just apply the product to my face and use my fingers to blend it. I used to take the 'shake before using' text very lightly until my face landed up looking like an Oompa Loompa's face! 

I'm not sure if you've noticed that there's a huge difference when you actually shaking the foundation bottle before you use it. Your base looks more even-toned when you do. Some of you may also notice a watery liquid that comes out first when you press the tube or pour from the bottle. As long as the expiry date has not passed by, your foundation is perfectly fine. All it needs is a little shake and it's good to use.

Depending on the shade of foundation that you own, if the product is not shaken well, instead of orange, you may spot whitish tint on your face. 

Nothing to worry about again. If your foundation is kept in one place for too long, the pigments and oils in the foundation start to settle at the bottom. The moment that happens a separation between product and oils takes place. That's a liquid foundation mistake you could be making. The solution? Shake well before using always! Good luck.
