7 Steps To Flawless Foundation Face
And below, here's how it looks with make-up on top:
They have a make-up artist that will probably spend more time getting the skin (AKA foundation) to look perfect than on anything else!
With these 7 Steps (and you don't have to do them all, just take what ya' like and leave out what you think is too much!) to a FLAWLESS FACE will leave people wanting to know the secret to your amazing skin.
Watch the video to see how to do and I'll put all the steps and links to what I used below:
STEP 1- MOISTURIZE
1. Apply Self-Tanner to clean face (optional- I didn't use any myself)
2. Moisturize Your Face
3. Apply lip balm to get lips plump and soft for make-up and lipcolor later
STEP 2- PRIME TIME
I actually like using BB creams (Beauty Balms), because they act like a primer but do even more!
STEP 3- FOUNDATION
I suggest buying 2, one that matches your skin perfectly and one that is a couple shades darker to make you like more "alive" and it will slenderize your face when applied how I show in the video!
STEP 4- CONCEAL IT
This is where you want to really conceal any blemishes, under eye circles, discolorations, sun spots, age spots, or maybe in freckles if you don't like them, like I don't like mine! ha ha ha
*make sure you get around the nostrils, mouth and eyes really well!
STEP 5- POWDER
YOU must powder your face to "SET" your make-up- if you don't, that's how it looks liek all your make-up vanished a few hours late!
*If you don't want to powder your whole face- at least powder your eyelids to make sure you have a dry surface before you apply eyeshadow!
STEP 6 - "BRON-TOURING" (yes, I made that up, in case you hear others use it!ha ha ha)
This is basic contouring, which will add depth and slenderize your face, make your cheekbones pop and so on. I just use a MATTE (no shimmer or sparkle at ALL) bronzer to contour as I show in the video.
STEP 7- CHEEK DAZZLE
Your face will "come alive" as you do this last "icing on the cake" step. Just add a peachy-pink blush for a healthy glow and a pinky-shimmer highlighter on the top of your cheekbones and down the center of the nose (if you want)...and your face is ready for any make-up look, or just mascara if you want!
Here's some linky-dinks to all the stuff I used in the video:
BEAUTY BLENDER MAKE-UP SPONGE- it makes the biggest difference!!!
