This is Kim Brown. This is actually a color primer, so it primes your face; it smooths everything out and gives you a nice moisture. It is not going to be overly moisturizing. You don’t want to use too much moisture on your wedding day. Don’t use anything extra and you should always practice your makeup before the actual day, so you know how it is going to last. Yeah, you’ve got some dry spots. It is always good to get facials beforehand to smooth out your skin tone a few weeks before. Especially if you have never had facials before, then you should may be start a month ahead of time and get a facial just in case you breakout. Since we are using a liquid foundation, we are going to go ahead and put the liquid on first and then we will do the concealer. If we were doing a powder foundation, we would want to put the concealer on first, cover any blemishes or dark circles under the eyes. We have a primer for the eyelids that helps the eye shadow stay on longer. The reason for that is you want to work from wet to dry, so you don’t want to put concealer over a dry powder. Okay? Two different foundations; I just like to hold them up to the skin. You can really tell just by holding it up. That one looks like it is going to be a good match, usually three pumps depending on what your makeup is, but you don’t want to have too much, but you would have a nice coverage all over and I just warm it up in my fingers. You can apply with a sponge too or a makeup foundation brush. I think that most people are used to putting their makeup on with the fingers and there is nothing wrong with that at all. You can rub it in really well and get it blended. Blending is really a key to putting your foundation on. You don’t want to have lines anywhere. So this matches your skin tone really well. You want to have something that matches. Sometimes I go one shade darker with foundation. As long as you blend really well, you can do that. A lot of times your face tends to be a little bit lighter than your neck area and your chest area, so if you do go one shade darker and blend it really well then it blends it really well with your neck and you have got a little bit of color. You might even use a sponge just to finish blending. When you think you have blended enough, just blend a little bit more and then you will be good.
