Step 1: Prep your skin
Prep your skin by moisturising and applying an eye cream. I find my makeup always looks better when my skin is hydrated.
Step 2: Prime time
Apply your primer and let it sit for a few minutes before applying foundation, which will help ensure your base lasts all night.
Step 3: Blend your foundation
Apply a small amount of the foundation to the back of the hand. I use Nude by Nature Flawless Liquid Foundation. It’s a long-wearing, full-coverage formula, and the natural pigments in the foundation help it blend in perfectly with my complexion.
Apply and blend foundation with the Nude by Nature Buffing Brush, using quick circular motions to ensure even application. Start with a thin layer and build on it only in the areas where you need to
Step 4: Even out your eyelids
To even out the colour of your eyelids, apply foundation over your lids using the buffing brush. The great thing about this foundation is that it’s dermatologist tested and suitable for sensitive skin, making it perfectly safe to use around my eyes.
Step 5: Apply concealer
If you’ve got a stick concealer, apply it directly to your skin. You can use your fingers to blend it, however I prefer to use a concealer brush. Then, apply concealer in any other areas you may need it. I use the Nude by Nature Flawless Concealer.
Step 6: Set your base
Set your base by applying a translucent powder such as Nude by Nature Mineral Finishing Veil with a finishing brush.
