You need a blank canvas

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

To make these beautiful shades pop, start by creating a clear and perfect foundation on your face with these simple steps:

1. Moisturize: Hydration allows your foundation to blend seamlessly.

2. Prime: Diminish fine lines, minimize pores and create a canvas for makeup application.

3. Concealer: For problem coverage and undereye darkness, apply with a brush.

4. Foundation: Apply where needed with a sponge. You do not need to cover the entire face.

5. Powder: Set makeup and reduce shine for a matte, unblemished finish.
