Before you start: Skin Prep

Before you start to think about applying makeup, it’s important to take good care of your skin by cleaning and moisturizing. Before applying makeup, Emma always cleans the face and neck using a cleansing water and cotton pads. Next, Emma massages in moisturizer. Dab a bit on a few key sections—the forehead, chin, cheeks—then smooth in upward, moving from the center out, until the moisturizer is completely absorbed. “Moisturize the entire neck, including the back to keep it smooth and t
aut,” she says. “And always moisturize your lips with a great lip balm.”Apply a light moisturizer. This will keep your skin from getting too oily during the day, and will help moisturize any dry patches on your skin. If you know you have oily skin don't skip moisturizer entirely; instead try a gel based formula that your skin will  react to. 
  • 1. Start with clean skin. Wash with a gentle cleanser or simply use a toner to wipe away any impurities from your skin.
  • 2.Wait five minutes before putting on foundation (see the next step) so that the moisturizer can sink in.[1]

  1. 3. Dab on a tinted moisturizer or a light foundation to your skin. Apply just a few spots with your fingers to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, then blend with fingers, or a foundation brush, working the spots outwards from the center in all directions. Be sure to choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and when in doubt choose a slightly lighter shade over a darker one. This will help you avoid looking orange and give you a more natural look.
    • If you want more coverage, you can use a makeup sponge to apply, using the same blending technique.
  2. 4.Put a little concealer under the eyes:Use a small pointed brush to dot a bit where under-eye circles are darkest, usually at the inner and outer corners of the eye. Add a speck to other blemishes that aren't covered by the foundation and blend into the skin. }
    • There's a little controversy about whether a concealer should be the same shade as your skin or ever-so-slightly lighter; however, it should never be lighter than one shade away from your natural tone. Look for something as close as you can find to your skin tone and err on the lighter side if need be.5.
    • 5. Set the concealer and moisturizer with a translucent powder. Apply it to your face, ideally using a velvet-y powder puff (as opposed to a powder brush, as that leaves a lot of loose powder) in a pressing motion. Use a powder brush to flick off any excess. If you are using a powder brush to apply, tap off the excess powder before applying to your face in circular motions. [4]
