There is nothing more lovely than glowing flawless skin. Unless you are one of the few who has been blessed with impeccable genes, you have to do some camouflaging of your skin to get that gorgeous airbrushed look. The trick is to get the appearance of even, bright skin without looking like you just got worked over by a makeup artist. Here are my tips and tricks for how to fake perfect skin every day.
- Light foundation primer (I recommend Smashbox Photo Finish)
- Buffing foundation brush (otherwise known as a kabuki brush)
- Beauty sponge or blender
- Concealer one shade lighter than your foundation (preferably highlighting)
- Cream highlighter
- Bronzing brush
Here we go with no makeup!! EEK! Most of us have some hyper pigmentation and sun spot issues. Also those dark circles need some TLC.
Step 1: Cleanse your face and apply SPF and foundation primer to whole face.
Step 2: Next, apply a 5c sized amount of foundation to buffing brush. Buff product into skin. Make sure to blend into ears and neck for seamlessness.
Step 3: Apply three strokes of concealer under eyes, working from tear duct to end of nose.
Step 4: Blend in foundation with your beauty sponge in dabbing motion until product is all blended. Bounce sponge over darker pigmentation areas as well.
Step 5: Dust bronzer to cheeks, temple and middle of neck to warm up face.
Step 6: Using fingers, blend in cream highlighter to upper cheekbones and temples. Use a tapping motion for this.
Voila! No one will every know what you are hiding! Your secret is safe!
