Makeup Tips (Part II )

Apply Concealer

If under eye circles or red spots remain, do not add more foundation, instead, try a concealer.

Concealer is more heavy than foundation, allowing fuller coverage of trouble spots and red areas. It can be used over foundation or on its own.
1. Since the skin under your eyes is more transparent, it tends to look dark, especially at the inner corner near the bridge of the nose. To even out the tone, concealer is a must. Using liquid concealer, gently pat over dark under-eye circles (don't sweep it across the entire area), then blend with your ring finger.
2. To cover trouble spots and imperfections, apply a thicker cream concealer onto the blemish or flaw. Then lightly press with a makeup sponge.

Tip: Choose the shade of your concealer carefully. When testing out shades, pick one that matches your skin tone or one shade lighter. It helps to use a mirror outdoors to see how shades look on your skin in natural light.

Tip: Prepare your skin with a light SPF moisturizer before applying concealer for a smoother application. 

The perfect all day flawless finish:

A light even dusting of loose powder sets foundation and concealer, giving your face a velvety, more natural finish.

Dip your powder brush in loose powder and shake off excess to avoid uneven distribution, then apply powder over entire face and neck.

To maintain a perfect finish throughout the day, apply pressed powder using a sponge or clean powder brush.
