Step 3: Time To Conceal

Apply concealer in a shade that’s slightly lighter than your skin tone to brighten and even out any areas that need work. Using a concealer brush, apply the formula under your eyes in an upside-down triangle shape and blend it out really, really well. Dab some concealer onto dark spots and other imperfections, ensuring you blend out the edges well so that your concealer seamlessly blends into your foundation.

Choose a liquid concealer for weightless coverage and a wide area of your face, like the under-eye area. Choose a compact or stick concealer for more solid coverage and smaller areas.

Step 4: Set Your Foundation

If you have normal skin, you can get away with patting some setting powder onto your T-zone. However, it is a good idea for the rest of your face to use a compact or setting powder to seal the deal. Use a buffing brush to apply the powder evenly onto your face and neck.

A compact powder is easy to tuck into your purse, and a few touch-ups throughout the day can keep your face looking shine-free.

Part II: Defining Your Features

Once you’ve got your base right, it is time to define and enhance your beautiful features.

Enhance Your Eyes

Make sure you invest in a high-quality eyeliner and mascara that don’t smudge or smear.

  • Using an eyeliner, line your upper waterline and the outer corners of your lower lashline. Use a brush to smudge the product to avoid harsh lines.
  • Use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes.
  • Apply a coat of mascara to instantly open up your eyes and make you look more awake and bright.
  • You can add a hint of a neutral shade of eyeshadow to your eyelids for a complete look.
