    Take a big fluffy brush and swirl it on wherever you need it. If you're using a powder, it's not going to do much as far as covering anything up. Powders tend to be a little sheer. You might want to try a liquid or a cream foundation. And when you do apply your makeup, try to do it in direct sunlight. That way you can tell if it's the right color or not. Good luck!

    Go to a mall and get a make over done. They will show you what color to use of foundation and will match your color tone. Before you go out play around with the foundation. Put little on and ask people/friends how does it look .

  • Just apply it evenly making sure you have no marks if it matches your skin colour you'll be fine. You can't look orange with powder so don't worry. x

    You could also get a concealer which you put on before your powderx

    I wouldn't worry as long as it's even and matches your skin everything will be fine. x

    Hope I helped x

    just apply it all over your face and some on your neck, and blend it in really good with a makeup sponge or your fingers. later on when you get more used to the powder i would suggest buying foundation and using poweder on top of that. you get a really nice flawless finish.

  • I think you should go back out and buy a concealer stick in your shade, and dot it on all of your blemishes. Than put the the powder on top. Or you could simply put two layers on, one for the blemishes and another for the full face.

    Brush it on lighly, and take pictures for people to judge.

    If you don't splatter it on it can't look bad.
