Foundation Mapping Is the Secret to Glowing Summer Skin

We go to great lengths for healthy, influencer-worthy skin. From vinyl skin to baking, we’ve jumped on every trend to get that coveted summer glow. But this season we’re pinning all of our hopes on one makeup artist-endorsed technique: foundation mapping.

Foundation mapping is a functional, time-saving, glow-up ritual that gives your base makeup a much-needed lift. The technique involves strategically applying your foundation on areas you really need it, then blending it in on the rest of your face.

The key to foundation mapping is knowing your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive) and the kind of base that works best for you. Once you’ve got that figured out, it’s time to get mapping.
