The first thing the future bride should do is select the foundation that is absolutely a perfect match. In order to be a perfect match, the foundation should be applied and blend into the skin in 2-3 strokes. Any foundation of any shade will blend in given time and effort eventually. What makes foundation a good match is how quickly it blends in with your skin. The best way to hide under eye circles is to apply the opposite color before you apply concealer and foundation. For example, if the circles under your eyes are gray in color, then you will want to apply a pink eye shadow and then the concealer and foundation. If your under the eye circles are blue, then you will want to apply a peach colored eye shadow before the concealer and foundation. This will help create a more natural color, while using less concealer and foundation. However, do not use an eye shadow that is more than one or two shades lighter than your skin. If you use a lighter eye color, the under the eye shadows will appear more gray. This is the opposite of the effect of what you are hoping to create. When you are finished, your skin should appear as one even shade.

Another trick that will help your foundation stay on longer is to pat your foundation with a Kleenex before you apply the powder. By patting your foundation with a Kleenex, you will remove the excess oils and leaves the pigment on the skin. Sometimes this removes a little extra foundation, so you will have to apply extra foundation before you pat your face. As a result of this simple patting trick, your foundation will stick around for hours longer than normal. After you apply the foundation, you will want to apply the powder. The best way to apply powder is with a large brush. The powder should be applied very lightly with this brush. This will create a nice layer of powder that does not look like it was caked on.
