If you want to achieve perfectly flawless skin, then you could apply a bit of concealer, as it will really cover up all of your acne scars and uneven skin; however, if you want to achieve a natural look, then powder foundation is all you need to apply. If you really want the powder foundation to blend in your skin, then apply the foundation with a brush instead of a sponge. When you use a sponge, the powder foundation has the tendency to look uneven on your skin, while when you’re using a brush, the makeup will blend with your skin perfectly.
