Applying color corrector to the face

1. Add color corrector

Before we start glamming it up, let’s work at the base, so we have a nice canvas to work with. If you have spots and an uneven skin tone like I do, then go ahead and apply a color corrector to all the areas you’d like to cover up. 

Orange color corrector on the face

Orange color corrector takes care of purple-blue dark circles under the eyes and any dullness in the skin.

Blending foundation with a makeup sponge

2. Add foundation

Now, add your favorite foundation and make sure to blend everything together for a more natural look. I’m using a makeup sponge to dab and pat the foundation evenly.

Setting concealer with translucent powder

Then, set your concealer with translucent powder.

One of my best festive makeup tips is to make sure your eyebrows get a little TLC. Go ahead and fill them in with a color that resembles your hair color. 

Applying a light nude eyeshadow to lids

5. Do the eyes

Now, I’m using a rose gold eyeshadow stick. You can use this or an eyeshadow, and whatever you have on hand will work. Apply it to your whole mobile eyelid.
