Apply a moisturizer with SPF (Sun Protection Formula) – It helps the concealer to glide on smoothly. Then use concealer only where you need it, like on under-eye circles and blemishes. You must try concealer with a creamy formula, in a shade that matches your skin tone. Choosing a shade lighter is definitely very important and is a myth. Too-white circles under your eyes will appear like you wore goggles while tanning. Always ensure that you apply in little stripes with a pointed concealer brush. Then, blend it thoroughly using your ring finger or the tip of your brush for the lightest touch, and don’t tug on delicate under-eye areas.
Touch of Base – To get perfectly flawless even skin in the speedy way, make use of a foundation stick. It’s easy and gives you profuse and accurate application. It’s the best to try Foundation Stick with the technique of using the stick like a colossal mark by drawing thick lines down cheekbones, on the sides of your nose and above brows, and blending it thoroughly with your fingers. If you want to look a little more sun-kissed? Before blending, make sure that you use a second stick that’s two or three shades darker in all the same places for a streak-free glow. You have to mix both colors together over your face and down onto your neck using your fingers—the heat from your hands will warm up the foundation and help it in gliding smoothly. If you desire a lighter coverage? Rub moisturizer on your hands before you blend for a sheer, dewy finish.
Make it Perfect- If a pesky zit or mark is still visible through, go back and hide it with an extra layer of concealer or try a cover-up with a concealer that contains salicylic acid which will help to shrink blemishes while it camouflages. Dab it onto problem areas with a pointed brush instead of spreading it on the face directly from the tube. Right on top of the blemish, it’s not meant to be totally blended in but to avoid cakeyness, use your ring finger to pat its perimeter outward until smooth. For staying powdery, apply powder over top with a puff to absorb oil and to keep cover-up from sliding off midday.
Apply Blush – Forget shading and sculpting cheekbones with a brush and powder, and try a cream blush instead; for the instant glow-from-within effect. Apply to the apples of your cheeks. The best way to find your apple of face: Smile! Then blend the color up toward your temples with your fingers. The Bright, bold hues like the berry shade used on our model can look natural, but if you’re color-shy, build the intensity by gradually layering it on. Gone overboard? Defuse a clown like situation by applying a bit of foundation over top instead of washing it all off and starting from scratch.
Apply Shimmery Eye Base-For pro-looking eye makeup in no time, apply a wash of sheer, shimmery cream shadow from lash lines to brow bones using your pointer finger. Shimmer helps hide stray eyebrow hairs if you don’t have time to tweeze. If your skin is fair like our model, try a silvery white shade. For medium to dark skin tones, opt for a champagne color instead. To get an extra bright-eyed effect, dot the color onto the inner corners of your eyes too. Celebs use this trick on the red carpet all the time.
Pop your Eyes- Next, use bronze and gold cream shadows (both are in that same Revlon palette) to give eyes more depth. Apply the bronze shade in your creases with a flat shadow brush for more control, and use your fingers to smudge it down over the lids—avoiding the brow bones. There shouldn’t be any harsh lines or stripes of color, says Rizzieri; it should look blended and effortless. To make everything budge-proof (important with creamy formulas like these), set the cream with a matching powder eyeshadow, or dust a colorless translucent powder on top (like the kind used in step three). Then, to make eyes look even bigger, pat some gold cream shadow onto the centers of your lids and run a little along your lower lash lines with your finger or a small brush. Using gold under eyes looks luminous; darker shades can draw attention to under-eye circles.
Add some Definition- For more intensity, rim your upper lash lines with a brown liner pencil and smudge it upward with your shadow brush. Then set with the same powder eyeshadow used in the previous step. Finish off with two coats of mascara on top and bottom—focusing on the outer lashes with the top of the wand. If your brows aren’t as full as our model’s, lightly fill in any gaps with a pencil and use a disposable mascara wand to brush the hairs up. To give eyes an even bigger boost, use an eyelash curler before you apply mascara. Start as close to the roots of your lashes as possible and gently pulse the curler forward bit by bit to the ends.
Lush looking Lips – If your lips are dry or at all chapped, gently buff with a damp washcloth and apply lip balm. Let it sink in well, and blot with a tissue if it feels slippery. Using a strawberry-color lipstick straight from the tube, apply it to the center of your mouth (make a kissy face!), where color tends to wear off first. Blend the lipstick out over your lips, patting the color on with your fingertip to help it last. This gives you that fresh, just-ate-a-popsicle look. To ramp up things for night, add a layer of gloss for extra shine. Run a piece of ice over your lips before slicking on gloss to help color last all day and prevent it from bleeding.
