Prepping skin

1. Prep your skin

Start by ensuring your skin is well hydrated. Use an illuminating dark spot corrector to reduce dark spots, calm redness, and even out your skin tone. 

Massage the serum onto clean, dry skin in upward motions and allow it to fully absorb.

Prepping skin

Follow up with facial sunscreen, allowing it to sink in before moving on to foundation. 

If you have dry skin, consider adding a moisturizer to your routine before sunscreen.

Applying lip gloss

Apply a hydrating lip gloss to prep your lips.

Applying foundation

2. Apply foundation and concealer

Apply a lightweight, hydrating foundation using a contoured foundation brush.

Start from the center of your face and blend outwards to avoid demarcation lines.

Applying concealer

Choose a concealer that matches your skin tone closely to save time.

Apply it under your eyes and on any areas that need extra coverage, blending it seamlessly into your foundation.

Setting concealer

Set your concealer and oily T-zone areas with a brightening powder using a triangular powder puff.

Defining brows

3. Define your brows

Define your brows using a thin-tipped brow pencil for precision, focusing on the mid and tail sections of your brows.

Defining brows

Use a microblading-effect pen to create natural-looking brow hairs at the front of your brows.

Defining brows

Finish off with a volumizing fiber brow gel to add thickness and hold your brows in place.

Curling lashes

4. Apply eye makeup

Curl your lashes before applying any eye makeup to avoid smudging.

Applying eyeshadow

For a quick and easy eye look, use a cream shadow stick in a neutral shade. Apply it all over your lid and blend it out with a crease brush.

Lining eyes

Tight line your upper lash line with a black liner for added definition.

Adding mascara

Finish off with a coat of mascara using a mascara specifically designed for thin lashes.

Lining lips

5. Apply lipstick

Remove any remaining hydrating or plumping lip gloss you applied in step 1. 

Line your lips, focusing on the Cupid's bow and center of the bottom lip for a defined look.

Applying lip gloss

Blend out the lip liner and re-apply your chosen lip gloss for a plump, hydrated finish.

Adding bronzer

6. Add finishing touches

Warm up your complexion with bronzer, focusing on your forehead and cheekbones.

Applying winged eyeliner

Optional: Lift the corners of your eyes with a winged eyeliner using a liner brush.

Adding blush

Apply cream blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush.

Adding setting spray

Lock everything in place with a dewy setting spray.
