We all dream of having a flawless face but let’s be honest no one has perfect skin. I have been told plenty of times I have a flawless face but little do they realize that makeup is one of the biggest components to my “naturally” flawless skin…not to mention drinking tons of water! Nothings wrong with wanted to enhance the beauty that you already have, so here are my Top 5 tips for flawless skin….with makeup!
Tip 1: Always wash your face before you begin. This helps smooth out and get rid of any unwanted junk on your face. I wash my face with Noxzema and finish it off with an invigorating scrub.
Tip 2: It is important to start off with a great face primer. Face primers are just like a base coat for your fingernails. It helps the makeup adhere to the skin making it last all day long. Primers can minimize lines and pores for a perfect complexion. Primers can help to moisturize the face but I suggest having a nice face lotion such as Ponds to really moisturize dry skin a few minutes before applying the primer. I love any type of primer from Smashbox!
Tips 3: Now it’s time to put on your foundation or BB cream. Using a damp beauty blender is the best way to apply these products. It leaves an airbrush look to your face without the price of air brushes! I love Loreal’s Infallible Liquid Foundation
Tip 4: Conceal those dark spots girls! Look for concealers that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin for your under eyes and a shade that is almost like yours for your dark spots. Use a patting motion to really get the products to stay without causing creasing. I use Mac NC 42 concealer for my under eyes and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer to conceal dark spots.
Tip 5: Time for that top coat…Face Powder! A face powder helps set everything for the rest of the day. Use a fluffy powder brush to lightly tap on the powder and your flawless look is complete. I use Mac Prep and Prime Translucent Powder.
Now put on the rest of your makeup and get ready to rock the streets, flawlessly!
