Step 1: Start with a clean and freshly washed face.
I highly recommend using a wash cloth rather than your hands to avoid spreading more oils to your face. Wash the cloth every few days.
Step 2: Evenly apply moisturizing primer to hold your makeup products to your skin.
Step 3: Next, with a makeup sponge/beauty blender like the one pictured below, dab and blend only enough liquid foundation to cover the whole face.
-DID YOU KNOW-
A beauty blender allows you to more evenly apply your foundation without the smear marks that can result from using your fingers or also the classic triangle like sponges.
Step 4: Using an eyeliner pencil, apply to the inside of the lid, between the eye and your eyelashes.
Step 5: To finish the eyes, break out the mascara and apply.
Using a side to side motion while applying mascara from root to tip has been known to cover the lashes a little thicker than your regular strokes.
Step 6: Then apply a little blush to the apple of your cheeks using a small circular motion to spread evenly. Make sure to tap your brush like on the sink to remove excess powder. Remember, less is more!
Step 7: For my lips I use tinted chap stick to finish off my look, you can use whatever lipstick, gloss, or lip product you prefer.
Step 8: Blend your foundation from your face into your neck along the jaw line from ear to ear with a little moisturizer. This is a very important step if you want to avoid the “orange line”, as I always heard it called in high school! LOL
