Help! My foundation sucks!

Hi, I’m of South Asian descent with hyperpigmentation and discolouration issues, mostly on my forehead. Anyway, every time I apply on foundation my face just looks super grey. What am I doing wrong ? I’ve used face atlier’s yellow corrector, pink correctors of all varieties, and even red camo sticks, nothing works. It’s so frustrating. HELP!!!! 

Re: Help! My foundation sucks!

First, do your normal skin prep, apply a primer of your choice, apply a cream concealer in the areas which you have hyperpigmentation, add loose translucent powder to your forehead specifically, THEN apply a medium to full coverage foundation. Afterwards set with a loose powder, and seal everything with a setting spray.


I hope this helps!
