How to Apply Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

By Jenny Seyfried

Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse foundation is a whipped makeup that comes in a decorative jar. The makeup is soft and creamy, but it dries smoothly on your skin, giving you a matte finish. Applying mousse foundation is not much different from using a liquid foundation, except you need to have a light hand and use the product sparingly. With Dream Matte Mousse, it takes less makeup to get the same coverage as a liquid foundation.

Step 1

Wash your hands thoroughly before applying foundation. Apply moisturizer and primer as usual.

Step 2

Dot the foundation down the center line of your face vertically, starting at the forehead and working down to the chin. Apply the foundation sparingly, because a little goes a long way.

Step 3

Blend the makeup outward from the starting line pressing it into the skin as you go. Use a damp makeup sponge or your clean fingers to spread the makeup over your entire face.

Step 4

Dab extra foundation on trouble areas like age spots or blemishes. Blend so there are no visible makeup lines.
