*My tips for flawless looking skin:

  • If you have oily skin or your face “melts” during the day, use mineral foundations- they help soak up the oil and tend to feel lighter on the skin.
  • If you don’t feel like wearing full foundation, wear a tinted moisturizer- Laura Mercier has a great one!
  • Apply your face products in THIN layers- don’t put too much on or it will cake up on you
  • Use only enough powder to set the foundation- using a powder puff will help.  Too much powder will get cakey looking…
  • ALWAYS prime under the eyes if you plan on using a concealer- this will keep the concealer from seeping into fine lines.
  • Go for matte finish foundations if you are having pictures done- you don’t want to look shiny all over the face
  • Let your moisturizer set for at least 10 minutes before applying foundation- your skin needs time to soak in the moisture
  • If you are rushed for time, skip the full foundation and just use concealer on problem areas.  No powder is needed unless you have oily skin.
  • I cannot stress enough the importance of a good complexion mist- this helps refresh the face and make powder look less dry!
