Body foundation, which is makeup made specifically for your body, is all the rage right now. The high-coverage formulas help blur imperfections and create a smooth finish to the legs, arms, and decolletage.

If you haven’t had a chance to try to the unique makeup trend, you may not know exactly where to start. Here’s everything you need to know about body foundation below.

What is body foundation?
Body foundation is simply a foundation designed to be used on your body. Just as we use foundation on our face to cover up any blemishes, the same can be done to our limbs. It’s a quick and easy solution to creating an even, flawless complexion, whether you’re showing off your legs in a skirt or want to conceal a skin ailment like a sunburn.

How do you use body foundation?
Body foundation may seem intimidating, but it’s actually super easy to use. The first step is to prep your skin, making sure it’s properly exfoliated and moisturized so it holds the makeup well. Once you’re ready to apply, you can use your hands or a large brush to blend the foundation into your skin.

What products should you use?
Finding the perfect foundation match for your skin can be difficult, so we’re sharing a few of our top recommendations.
