Gently exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize your face, so it is as FRESH as possible.
Use a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone. Tinted moisturizers are sheer and not as heavy as your average foundation.
Tip: If you don’t have a tinted moisturizer on hand:
Mix a little bit of your moisturizer with your usual foundation to create your own tinted moisturizer.
Conceal blemishes or under-eye circles with your favorite concealer. The key to concealing is to build in THIN layers. Don’t overdo it, or you may make your problem worse.
My favorite brand of concealer is MakeUp by Sparkle Liquid Makeup Concealers.
Use a fluffy powder brush to sweep a layer of translucent facial powder. This will ensure that your face has a natural shine so it isn’t too oily looking.
Tip: To find your ideal blush hue:
Gently pinch your cheeks and take note of the color they turn.
Apply a small amount on the apples of your cheek. Don’t go below the nose or in past your pupil with your blush.
Wake up your eyes by using a blending brush to apply a light layer of a champagne colored eyeshadow all over the lid and blended up to eye brows.
Lightly dot a brown eye pencil or eye shadow into your top lash line along with a layer of mascara to top it off. Don’t forget to comb your lashes before AND after applying mascara to avoid clumps!
TIP: If you have light lashes and are trying to achieve a natural look, use brown mascara. People with dark lashes can stick with black.
Give your lips a sheer tint of lip balm close to your natural lip color.
