Step 1: You must moisturize and even out your skin tone. The most natural way to do this is with a tinted lotion. Many popular lines carry this product. It’s great because of the sheer coverage and matching your foundation color is less necessary. If you want to go just a bit deeper to warm up your complexion. It’s great to apply this as a basic moisturizer daily.
My personal favorite way to create a natural clean fresh look is airbrush water-based foundation just a few drops and you achieve flawless perfection in under 3 minutes!
Step 2: Concealer is a must! The number one rule to create a clean look is to conceal your imperfections. You will want to use a good concealer to cover up dark circles and pimples. Be sure to not use too much concealer as to bring focus to your problem areas. If you have blemishes, dab and blend and then build up gradually in thin layers.
Step 3: Always set your foundation with powder. For a matte look use an oil absorbing powder. For a satin or dewy look use a translucent powder. If your skin is very oily, you may want to only use the concealer and not the tinted moisturizer.
ELEGANT CAT EYES
Step 1: Select a fine-tipped powder or pencil black liner and sweep the color along the base of your upper lash line. Be sure to extend the line just past the outer corner of your eye and then slightly upward.
Step 2: Subtly is the best rule. A light dusting of pink blush on cheeks and eyes and a few coats of mascara. You can go with or without lip color and maybe go with a lip balm to soothe and make your lips glow!
ORANGE IS THE NEW RED
The color orange is absolutely as glamorous as red, just not nearly as strong. This lively citrus shade has been making an appearance on the red carpet on such celebrities as Camille Belle seen at Bvlgari’s “Decades of Glamour” Oscar Party (Exclusive Photos).
What’s fantastic is that this lipstick shade suits all complexions. To get the most out of this color choose a shiny finish.
However, we suggest that you balance this lip color with neutral shadows, plenty of mascara, complimented by a peachy tone on your cheeks.
