Why does my foundation look so cakey?

Everytime I wear foundation, I clean and exfoliate my skin (also use primer), but it always looks cakey and gross. What can I do to fix this?

Answers:

Don't use setting powder if you don't need it.
Don't reapply setting powder through the day if you get oily.
Use a sponge to push the product into the skin, not sit on top of it.
Try a different foundation.

Maybe it's more to do with the number of makeup products you put on your face, the more you put on, the cakier it will be. Applying makeup too heavily could also be the reason for cakiness.

For example, Majority of women tend to put on more than one layer of foundation on their face to achieve a full coverage look. Pairing the foundation with concealer, topping it off with powder, highlight, and contour. The rest of the look consists of eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick.

When you actually think about how much you put on yourself, what I listed seems like a lot, but that's truly what the popular make up trend consists of, so if your routine is anything like what I've mentioned then that could be the reason for caking. It's the same thing for haircare; the more product you use, the more buildup you get.

Sometimes, less is more. Fewer products, lighter application, and you'll see a difference. Though, if you have a full coverage foundation then these steps will make you look flawless. The problem that people have is building up too many layers of their light to medium foundations to achieve a full coverage look, just because a foundation claims to be buildable, not all foundations are buildable past two layers, and if two layers don't achieve full coverage then perhaps you should focus on getting an actual full coverage foundation instead and you'll get the desired look without too much effort.

Use a setting spray after your makeup. Make sure you aren’t putting too much foundation/powder on as well.
