Step 1: Moisturize
Flawless looking skin starts before you even touch your makeup. Balanced, supple skin is the most important element in achieving that polished, flawless look. Healthy and hydrated skin reduces the number of, and severity of, breakouts that can tarnish your appearance. What moisturizer is right for your type of skin? We break that down for you here.
Step 2: Find the right shade
If your foundation makes you appear ashy, sallow or washed out it is not the right color. First determine your undertone – yellow, pink or neutral? Are you fair? Are you dark? Selecting the right shade of foundation is key to allowing your makeup complement your natural skin’s beauty.

Step 3: Prep your skin
After cleansing the skin, apply your moisturizer. Wait 5-10 minutes to allow the moisturizer to fully absorb and skin into the skin. Then apply your specialty products, makeup primer and concealer.

We suggest you always apply a water-based primer to give your makeup a supple canvas and also to protect your skin from harsh environmental elements, prevent moisture loss and give your skin a more natural, beautiful finish.
Step 4: Apply it correctly
Cream-to-powder foundation makeup is forgiving and a little will go a long way. What’s the best way to apply foundation? Use a brush for light, even coverage all over the face; a sponge for more concentrated coverage; or in a pinch even your (clean) fingers for spot concealment. Apply your foundation makeup after your concealer but dab the makeup into the concealer to blend colors, don’t swipe or wipe it away.
