5 QUICK SIMPLE STEPS TO FLAWLESS SKIN


ILLUMINATING PRODUCTS FOR NATURAL PERFECTION. 
Faking perfect skin is easier than it seems—just follow these simple 5 steps to conceal wrinkles, pimples, dark circles, and more.


1. THE FOUNDATION
The perfect foundation serves as a canvas for your make-up, hiding all sorts of imperfections and evening out your skin tone. The main point of using a foundation or base is to even out the tone and colour of the skin. Use a foundation that leaves a glow and luminous finish on the skin.  I put MAC strobe cream on the T-zone. This trick makes everything look lighter, like you’re not wearing foundation. Warm one drop of your luminous, weightless Foundation in the palm of your hand then blend in small sections, starting at the centre of the face moving outward. Currently loving Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation in shade no 7 for medium-full coverage and my holy grail Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation shade no. 4 and 6 mixed together (my perfect skin tone ) for a weightless, silky texture. The oil–free fluid glides on seamlessly, offering hydrating all-day coverage that can be layered for a personalised finish. 

2.THE CONCEALER
Whether you want to cover up unwanted blemishes or dark under-eye circles, effective concealers are a true beauty hero. With a fine-tipped brush, dab a solid concealer over blemishes or dark spots that are still visible, get rid of redness with a yellow-based foundation. Smooth it over any discoloration with your fingers, and then blur the edges with a damp makeup sponge. Hide under-eye circles with a creamy formula, such as the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand, tapping it on with your ring finger gently.  Finish by buffing the concealer with light reflecting setting loose powder to give me that long lasting flawless finish.

3. THE HIGHLIGHTER
Cream or powder or both, I’m obsessed with highlighters. It just gives you that J.Lo glow you’ve always wanted. Bring your skin back to light by applying on the high points of your cheekbones and on the inner corners of your eyes. One of my all time favourite is MAC Mineralise Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle.

4.THE POWDER
Powders that reduce shine along the T-zone without a heavy finish like MAC’s Mineral Skinfinish Natural in Medium Golden. It gives me perfect light coverage and use it to set and fix my foundation throughout the day.  Give your skin a velvet, natural-matte texture in just a few sweeps... Another HG of mine is the Light Reflecting Setting Powder Loose from NARS, an invisible silky powder, no trace of colour. Apply it with the NARS Kabuki Botan Brush all over the face before picking up a bit on a small dome brush to set concealer on the inner corner of the eye and on the lash line.  


5.THE BLUSHER
Blusher is the one product that can instantly make you look younger, healthier and prettier. A good blusher replaces the natural colours in your cheeks that drain away with age. Swish across cheekbones to sculpt or dab colour on the apples of your cheeks for a youthful glow in shades from golden bronze to cherry chic. I prefer soft pinks to peachy matte(with no shine) creamy blushers as it looks more natural. The NARS X Stephen Klein One Shocking Moment Cheek Studio Palette is perfection!
