Apply a skin primer to clean skin. A primer protects the skin and helps create a more even application for foundation.
Apply a lightweight moisturizer for your skin type.
Choose a concealer with an olive or yellow undertone.
Apply concealer under the eye area and dab onto any imperfections or redness.
Choose the proper shade of foundation for your skin complexion.
Apply your foundation with a wedge sponge if you are using a liquid foundation. If you are using a mineral powder use a brush to apply the foundation evenly.
Brush the bronzer onto your face using firm even strokes.
Choose an eye shadow with golden or earth tones to brighten the eyes.
Line your eyes with black liquid eyeliner at the base of the lash—this really brings out those eyes.
Apply mascara from the outside of the lash first and work inwards to the base of the lash. Make several quick even strokes on each lash to achieve a full look. For a more dramatic look apply false lashes.
Brush the brows with a brow brush using firm upward and outward motions.
Apply a small amount of lip gloss—pink and neutrals are both good choices.
Line your lips with a nude or plum lip liner.
Use a lip brush to apply lipstick—this creates an illusion of fuller lips.
Reapply the lip gloss.
Apply a warm blush to the cheek bones and be sure to blend it just to the hairline.
