1. Perfect Complexion
The look is quite simple—you want to accentuate your natural beauty. For a flawless application, cleanse and moisturize your skin before putting on any makeup. Exfoliate regularly. This gives you a smooth, clean canvas to work on because dead skin cells are removed and the application of foundation glides on. Once your skin is dry, apply a dime-size amount of foundation with your fingers. Brushes and sponges can cause makeup to look cakey. Sheer it out using your hands. Hide any remaining redness or blemishes with concealer. Apply a translucent powder lightly to set the foundation.
Expert Tip: Don’t forget to apply foundation to your neck as well. It will keep the coverage even and natural-looking.
2. Add A Flush
Blend a cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks, then play up your features with highlighter or a shimmery cream shadow on the cheekbones, brow bones, and inner corners of the eyes. Don’t go too heavy; keep it light and airy.
3. Finishing Touches
Open up your eyes with a swipe of black liner along your upper lids, then curl your lashes and apply one coat of black mascara. Remember, less is more.
