Foundations are available in four different types nowadays. All those are good options. However, it would be best if you chose according to your skin type and what suits you.

Also, the primer helps to tone your shade. You can use colour correcting primers if you have skin issues like dullness, uneven pigmentation, or redness.

Keep applying a small amount of foundation until you get the right coverage you need. Set your goal to apply a smooth and thin layer of foundation all over your face and keep your skin look like skin.
It does not matter what you use, apply foundation with sponge, brush or your fingers, just make sure to do in a stippling motion. This means that gently tab the foundation into your skin. Do not wipe or rub it because it just pushes the foundation and ends up with streaks. Gentle stipple assures you smooth and silky coverage.

Slightly apply foundation with sponge or brush over your ears in a sweeping motion for perfect blend similar to your face.
Most people think that using powder over foundation means matte or cakey look. But dusting base with loose setting powder assures you that it will not budge or dull. Actually, setting powder over foundation gives perfect finishing and makes other makeup product application easy. Must ensure to provide a powder finish to your areas that are prone to sweat like the T-zone, under eyes, and chin.
It is not necessary to use concealer. Only use concealer if you feel foundation was not enough. It means that, if your dark circles, blemishes and red spots are visible, so conceal them with small amount of concealer. Dab a small amount of concealer on your visible scars, and then tap it onto your skin and blend for a seamless look. Always remember that concealer comes a level lighter in tone than your foundation. Also, you can apply concealer onto your highlighting areas for a sleek look.
Always choose the right foundation colour according to your skin tone. Do not check the foundation colour from your hand or face. Instead of this, match the colour from your neck to ensure it matches your skin tone. These are the tips you needed to follow for revolutionary flawless foundation application.
