PRODUCTS: Flawless Foundation - Contouring & Highlighting

STEP ONE: is to start with a Freshly Washed Face and to MOISTURIZE.

Coconut Oil is great for hydrating dry skin. It helps my makeup glide on smoothly and gives my face a dewy glow.
STEP TWO: Even out your skin tone with  FOUNDATION. My personal preference is to apply my foundation FIRST. This way you can see exactly what your foundation did not cover and you are not rubbing off your concealer. It is completely personal preference as to what works best for you. To find the right foundation color for you, rub in a dab along your jaw bone. If it disappears you have found the perfect shade.
Here I am using Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup SPF 20 (med). It automatically adjusts to your skin color once you rub it in.

STEP THREE: Camouflage any skin imperfections with CONCEALER. 

To cover DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES I use Garnier Skin Renew ANTI-DARK CIRCLE Roller

 STEP FOUR: Highlight with SHIMMERING SKIN PERFECTOR. This gives my skin such a youthful dewy glow.
I apply the shimmer to the Top of my Cheekbones, Under my eyebrows, Inner Corner of Eye, and Lips.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+ (opal) Achieve a subtle luminosity. This formula features ultrafine light-reflecting pearls that melt into your skin for polished, natural-looking radiance.
STEP FIVE:  A light POWDER FOUNDATION. Reduces shine, Prepares Eyes for Liner & Shadow. I use Physicians Formula Airbrushing Powder (translucent): Ultra-fine mineral powder delivers impeccable coverage for a flawless airbrushed finish. Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores and sun damage. 

* I only apply this LIGHTLY to avoid a dry, cakey finish.

Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30 - translucent

I use my own SPONGES with most of my Compact Powder Makeup. It makes the powder go on smooth instead of cakey or dry. These sponges are reusable, just wash with anti-bacterial soap and water. You can find them at most pharmacy's.

STEP SIX: Contour with BRONZER. Apply your bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face.  

* Stay out towards your hairline on the forehead & temples. 
* Apply below the cheekbone to keep the eye area bright. 
* Blend into your neck & jawline. 
* You can also make your nose appear thinner by applying to the sides OR shorter by applying to the tip. 

Airbrushing Bronzer SPF 30 

* I apply this with my own sponge to get a more glowing look.

STEP SEVEN: At this point your face will have a nice healthy glow. Sometimes I will add BLUSH for a little extra color.

STEP EIGHT: Set your makeup with PRESSED POWDER. I use Revlon ColorStay. This creates an amazing flawless finish to my skin. If you have oily skin you will love this powder!

Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder (med/deep)
* I use this powder sparingly. I still like the healthy, youthful glow VS a dry matte finish. If you have aging or dry skin - only apply where you tend to become oily or shiny. I use the actual applicator that comes with this compact.

*Note: I Do Not use the (Instant age rewind eraser for dark circles) anymore. I only use the Garnier Skin Renew ANTI-DARK CIRCLE Roller.
