What's the difference between foundation, moisturizer, and a make-up base?
...and tinted moisturizer, powder, etc.
Which of the four (or five) is absolutely essential?
Which is ideal for when you want to make your skin look nice, but don't want to look heavily made up? I see these girls on the street with this pale skin... but it looks cakey and gross.

Moisturizer is to make your skin soft and prevent aging and wrinkling. After you put that on (and its necessary) then use a light concealer just on your trouble spots such as red spots, pimples, under your eyes, etc. Then use a light foundation (the cakey look comes from the foundation to powder makeups or to much foundation) put a small amount on your finger and then put small dots evenly around your face and then rub in in a circular motion with a make up sponge. Then apply powder lightly just enough to take away the shine. Doing it this way will even out your skin tone and look natural. Good luck.

Moisturize consistently comes first - assuming you have already cleansed and toned your face. Toner isn't mandatory yet I consistently use it. A "base" is what you place on your eyelid in the past your eyeshadow, so the eyeshadow will stay in place and final longer - you ought to use eyeshadow primer, concealer, or a unbiased cream eyeshadow, or despite you come across works suitable. After moisturizer, you place on foundation primer. this protects the exterior from the two the inspiration and environmental stuff, and contraptions a gentle canvas on your epidermis for the makeup to drift on and stay positioned longer. Then, foundation. be useful you utilize the suitable brush!

moisturizer moisturizes, foundation and makeup base are basically the same, tinted moisturizer is like moisturizing foundation, powder is just to lightly cover up things. I think foundation is good if you don't use too much. Powder is only good if you really aren't trying to cover much up. Or if you would rather use concealer for blemishes and none of these things, that's good too.

Despite of others moisturizer is not a make up material, it is to moisture your skin. It is important to use it expecially on cold weather and under sun (use one with sun protector). And for others I think you should read, it would be so long to write here.
