First thing’s first – you’ve really got to take care of your skin! The ultimate beauty hack out there is to step up your skincare regimen. When you do more for your skin, you can achieve better results with less makeup. The most important thing is to make sure you’re taking off all your makeup before going to bed! This makes a huge difference – seriously.
Besides moisturizing your face, invest in a serum that you can apply in the morning after washing your face! A highly concentrated serum can even out your skin tone and boost radiance, which gives your skin a naturally radiant glow without all the makeup. Caudalie Radiance Serum ($89) is a bit of a splurge but it’s worth every penny.
2. Swap out the liquid foundation for BB cream
For a dewy complexion, use BB cream instead of liquid foundation. BB cream hydrates, evens out your skin tone, and blurs imperfections! What’s not to love?
Pro tip: If you need more coverage, mix a bit of liquid foundation with BB cream and set it with powder foundation with medium coverage.
3. Apply concealer with your fingers
The next step is to apply concealer with your fingers. The warmth from your fingertips will help the concealer melt into your skin.
In a dabbing motion, keep blending all of the excess product and pulling it beyond that section to soften the transition! Next, go over the area with a different concealer product. The difference in formula and shade between the two concealer products will bring more dimension to your face.
4. Bring harmony into your complexion
Conventional makeup techniques for a full face of makeup tends to be dissected into a step by step process. The key to achieving a natural, radiant glow is to rethink this process as a whole and to focus on how to bring everything together!
To bring more harmony to your face: After applying blush to the apples of your cheek, sweep the remaining product on your brush (very delicately) over the t-zone, chin, and lids. Then use the same technique with your highlighter.
5. Use your fingers to apply more highlighter
As a final touch, use your fingers to pick up some highlighter and smudge it over your lids, cupid’s bow, nose bridge, and nose tip to get that highlight poppin’.
