3 Ways to Avoid Cakey Makeup

Cakey makeup is an unpleasant sight. After all, all women want a smooth and flawless finish after applying makeup. Unfortunately, numerous factors can cause your foundation to look patchy and flaky. Even so, you can prevent and fix this common issue. So, here are some ways to avoid cakey makeup.


Opt for Beauty Products According to Your Skin Type


Many beauty experts recommend choosing makeup products based on your skin type for numerous reasons. One, in particular, is to avoid cakey makeup.

Take women with dry skin as an example. Beauty experts recommend buying makeup products with hydrating ingredients to help moisturize your skin. Additionally, these products can also prevent your makeup from flaking or peeling. On the other hand, women with oily skin can apply a setting powder before a foundation to prevent their makeup from creasing or smearing.

Have a Good Skincare Routine


One of the best ways to avoid cakey makeup is to have a good skincare routine. Remember, your foundation will look smooth and flawless, especially when applied on a smooth surface.

There are numerous ways to achieve a flawless makeup look. For one, beauty experts recommend keeping your skin well-hydrated. Remember, your makeup will peel off when applied to dry skin. As such, you should always apply a moisturizer before a foundation. When moisturizing, you can focus on the areas prone to peeling or flaking, such as under the eyes and the T-zone.

Aside from moisturizing your skin, beauty experts also recommend exfoliating your skin once or twice a week. The reason is that the oil and dirt on the outer layer of your skin can make your makeup look cakey. Plus, you’ll have a smooth surface for your foundation when you get rid of dead skin cells regularly.



Apply a Primer


A primer is an excellent product you can apply on your face to create a smooth surface for your makeup. In fact, it can help prevent your makeup from creating creases or fine lines.

Beauty experts recommend moisturizing your face 10 minutes before you apply a primer. When applying a primer, you can focus on the areas of your skin prone to flake or peel, such as your T-zone and under the eyes. From there, the primer will create a smooth base for your foundation and other makeup products.

Final Thoughts


All in all, these are some of the most effective ways to avoid cakey makeup. As presented, you can prevent flaking, creasing, and peeling by creating a smooth surface for your foundation. Additionally, experts recommend spritzing a setting spray to give your makeup a flawless and more natural appearance.
