Goss Make-up Artists’ Flawless Foundation Technique – How to!

So recently there has been a bit of a buzz about a new foundation technique by Goss make-up artist (an amazing make up artist and famous YouTuber). This technique involves three simple steps and promises a flawless base with fantastic coverage. Naturally, as soon as I watched the video (which you can view below) I gave it a go, and I am very impressed with the results! But, before I go into my thoughts take a look at my how to.

Powder before Foundation Technique

  1. Prep your skin as per usual, e.g. moisturise or apply primer to cleansed skin as normal.
  2. Apply loose powder all over your face as usual in circular motions. You can use either translucent powder or a coloured powder if you need/want more coverage.
  3. Apply your liquid foundation of choice over the top. N.B I have found this technique works best when foundation is applied with your fingers, Goss Make-up artist also does this too.

I was sceptical at first, as it seems to be too simple to be so effective – but it really is! I have used this technique three times so far now and have been impressed with not only the finish I get, but also how long my make up lasts. I follow the three steps, firstly moisturising then priming with either my e.l.f or L’oreal primer, applying my Revlon Naked loose powder with my Jeesup brush all over and then applying my liquid foundation of choice with my fingers. So far I have used MAC Studio Fix and my The Face Shop BB cream over the powder and both have worked as well as each other, but I think I prefer the finish of using the BB cream. Below are two quick not so great quality photos of my make up using Goss’ technique with BB cream. I think you can see the nice smoothness, and as I said it lasted all day and still looked fresh, I also think it helped control my oiliness which equals giant happy faces!!
