Everybody’s prone to a pimple here, a wrinkle there and a bit of uneven skin tone every once in a while. So how do the celebs make it look as though they go through every day with flawlessly smooth skin? The secret is their makeup – and the good news is, it’s a secret you can steal. Follow these tips to achieve a blemish-free complexion just like the stars.
First, start with primer. Primer helps fill in pores and wrinkles, so your foundation has a smooth canvas on which to lie. Plus, primer will keep your makeup from melting off your face in the hot sun, so no matter how long you’re going to be out, you can be sure you’ll look fresh-faced all day long.
When it comes to the actual foundation, it’s important not to be too heavy-handed. This can seem counterintuitive to many women, but in fact, applying too much foundation will give you a caked-on look that settles into wrinkles, actually emphasizing them. Instead, use a semi-sheer foundation and apply it sparingly to the areas you want to correct.
To finish off your look, try a translucent powder or a setting spray that will make sure your cosmetics stay put all day long. Add a touch of bronzer and blush for a sunkissed summer glow, and you’re ready to go!
