Beauty Beat. Recipe For A Flawless Face in 3 Easy Steps – How To

January 12, 2010 • Beauty


Mastering flawless makeup is a challenge for some, and rushing to work with only 10 minutes to spare, makes it even more challenging. But there is a way you can achieve flawless skin in a flash, you only need a few products!

Here's my Recipe for a Flawless Face:

To get started, Use  and apply your favorite foundation or a foundation with medium to full coverage like Face Atelier Ultra Foundation,$45.00 or Becca's Stick Foundation, $44.00. These portable foundations are great for on-the-go.

Next, Grab a buffer brush like Face Atelier Soft Buffer Brush, $69 and your favorite powder. For a beautiful airbrush finish I love for oily skin Makeup Forever's Duo Mat Powder Foundation, $32 or normal to dry, MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish, $27.00.

Take your buffer brush, and swirl in your powder, and apply to your face. Buff in a circular motion from the top of your forehead around the peripheral area of the face and then from your t-zone down to the bottom of your face. Buff your whole face until your foundation and powder are blended to seamless flawless skin.

For extra staying power, use a finishing spray like Skindinavia's Makeup Finishing Spray, $29 -$39, or Face Atelier's Face Finish, $24.00 .

Here are some other great foundations:

Black Opal Stick Foundation, $8.99

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, $40.00
