Full Answer

  1. Prepare your face

    Your face should be freshly washed and moisturized. Apply a makeup primer over the entire surface. This minimizes pores and keeps the makeup in place throughout the day.

  2. Apply the foundation

    Using a sponge or a makeup brush, apply a light coating of foundation over the entire face. For an even more natural look, apply a tinted moisturizer.

  3. Use the concealer

    For blemishes, spots or under-eye circles, apply concealer using a brush. Blend it into the foundation.

  4. Set the base

    Use a powder brush and loose powder to sweep a light dusting of powder over the whole face.

  5. Highlight the cheeks

    Use a blush brush to sweep a warm color over the apple of the cheeks. Use a light touch.

  6. Apply eye shadow

    Use a neutral color that complements the eyes. Apply the shadow using an eye shadow brush. Apply a light color on the inner corner to brighten the eyes. Use an angled brush and a slightly darker shade to shade a line right at the lash line.

  7. Finish the look

    Apply two coats of mascara to the eye lashes, rolling the barrel so it doesn't clump. Finish with a lightly-tinted lip gloss.
