1. Spot-conceal blemishes, instead of a full face of foundation.

– Carry a concealer palette with you throughout the day in case you are in dire need of touch up. This will also keep your face from looking cakey.

3. Make sure to always completely remove the previous day’s makeup.

4.Don’t leave any white powder residue on your face!

-Using  a makeup sponge can help eliminate the trace of white powder you used from baking. The best way to do it is by getting your sponge slightly wet with water, ( squeeze any extra out,) dab some powder from your powder cap,  and then press it into your skin.

7.Add a subtle highlight on the orbital bone of your eyes.

 -Brush on your highlight in “C” motion along your cheekbones and the outer corner of your eyes, this will brighten your skin and make your face look fresh. If you have dry skin, you can always use a cream highlighter for a less cakey and more flawless look.

8.Conceal your under eyes at a curved angle if you have full cheeks.

– Use a red or orange concealer (even lipstick works) to help hide your dark circles. Then put your foundation or yellow-tinted concealer on top of it, this will disguise the red tint from your concealer. Make sure to blend them out completely between each step.

 -You will continue with same shades of concealer as tip #8, but instead of doing it at a curved angle you will want to do it in a triangular shape.
