Before you start...
- Remember that great makeup starts with excellent skincare. Always cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin at least once a day and never go to sleep with your makeup on!
- Go light on the foundation, you don't really need it. Youthful skin has a gorgeous natural glow that you should be showing off, not covering up!
- Less is more!
Get the look
Step one: Start by applying concealer onto any blemishes or imperfections. Then, apply a luminous BB cream (includes skincare benefits + SPF) to your face with a brush or sponge.
Step two: Apply a light dusting of mattifying/finishing powder.
Step three: Using an eyeshadow brush, apply a natural shade such as gold, taupe, brown, or peach to your eyelid. If you want to make your eyes really stand out, you can also line them with a brown eyeliner, which is softer for daytime. Finish off your eye makeup with two coats of mascara.
Step four: Apply a wash of peachy pink color to your cheeks with a blush. To get the most natural results, smile, and apply the product on the apples of the cheeks before sweeping up toward the temples.
Step five: Complete the look with sheer pink lip gloss and you're all set!
