Not everyone is fortunate enough to have flawless skin, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fake it. To look like you rolled out of bed with great skin is not hard to achieve, you just need the right tools and ten minutes to spare. For this routine no more than 4 products are needed to achieve your flawless face.Â
First, apply a tinted moisturizer, preferably one with SFP like Smash Box Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, or Boots No. 7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturizer. These moisturizers are light weight and they hydrate as well as protect against harmful rays. I love tinted moisturizers because they minimize how much foundation and concealer you will need…less is more.Â
Once you have applied your moisturizer, it’s time to prime. A primer is needed to create a smooth and perfect surface, and to protect the skin for a longer lasting makeup. A primer like Make Up For Ever’s HD Microperfecting Primer is a great primer that is not too heavy and feels wonderful on the skin.Â
After your tinted moisturizer is applied and primer is set, it’s time to conceal. Because the tinted moisturizer has already been used, you can now add coverage only where needed with your concealer. It’s best to conceal under the eyes, around the nose and in areas like your T-Zone, and any blemishes you may have. Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit or for heavier coverage and Make Up For Ever Full Coverage Concealer are some of the best concealers that not only conceal but give long lasting coverage.
Once your face has been moisturized, primed and concealed, it’s time to set your face. It’s best to use a powder like Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder, because it’s finely milled, delivers no color and gives your skin a beautiful flawless glow. After this step is completed you are done, and you will look like you have perfect naturally flawless skin!
