How to Apply Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

Updated February 21, 2017

Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse foundation is a whipped make-up that comes in a decorative jar. The make-up is soft and creamy, but it dries smoothly on your skin, giving you a matt 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 mousse, it takes less make-up to get the same coverage as a liquid foundation.

Wash your hands thoroughly before applying foundation. Apply mousse foundation to clean, moisturised skin.

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

Blend the make-up outward from the starting line. Use a damp make-up sponge or your clean fingers to spread the make-up over your entire face.

Dab extra foundation on trouble areas like age spots or blemishes. Rub the mousse into your skin, blending it so there are no visible make-up lines.


If you suffer with dark spots, apply some concealer to those areas before applying your mousse foundation.
