underpainting makeup technique

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for underpainting makeup technique.

If you're looking for a way to get your makeup looking fresh and dewy, an underpainting is a great place to start. The idea is to apply your base makeup first, then add your usual routine of concealer, foundation, powder, etc. This will ensure that your final look is seamless and natural looking.


I have an extensive skin care routine and i'm not sure if any of my products would work the way they do without it so consider that getting expensive makeup alone isn't enough if you have a similar skin type than i do.. with my toner, serum, primer and pore refiner first though... this gets 6 out of 5 stars for me....I have never used a Underpainting Color Correction Palette before but this one is perfect.

What it is:
A pro-formulated color correcting cream palette with curated shade ranges for a perfectly even, primed complexion with long-lasting wear.

What it does:
Each Ultra HD Underpainting Color Correction Palette was developed by MAKE UP FOR EVER鈥檚 pro artist teams and tested on a wide range of skin tones to ensure precise and undetectable color correction—ridding skin of unwanted darkness, redness, and dull areas. As with the other Ultra HD products, a signature combination of coated pigments, powders, and a blend of emollient oils provide a second skin, seamless look and feel.
