Always use a moisturiser underneath the foundation. It should closely match the skintone in
colour, so there is no "line" where it stops. It is designed to even out the skintone and
provide a smooth base to put the other makeup on. It should not "add" colour to the face.
Apply with a damp sponge to get good even coverage.
Choose the colour closest to the skintone, this is used to conceal blemishes not covered by
the foundation. Blend it well into the foundation.
A light dusting of translucent face powder "sets" the foundation and concealer. Brush the
face with a large soft brush after applying to remove excess powder.
Use preferred pattern of application, but blend all edges and lines well. It is a good idea to
use a lash brush after using mascara, so that the lashes are more separated.
This is where you "add" colour to the face. Take a large soft brush and apply powder
blusher (easier to use than cream) from the top of the cheekbone to under the centre of the
eye. Make sure that the edges blend away well. Blusher can even help those with
"high colouring" as it helps to balance it instead of the colour being concentrated in one
spot. You can add a glow to the face with a very subtle dusting of blusher on the chin and
forehead. Ensure that the colour complements your skintone and lipstick.
Outline lips with a lipliner pencil close in colour to the lipstick. Apply lipstick with a
lipbrush for best results. Apply one coat of lipstick, rub lips together and blot with a tissue.
Repeat with a second coat. This helps the lipstick to stay on better. You can use two
different colours to produce a new blended colour.
