Flawless beauty anyone?

Dying to get a perfectly even skin tone? no spots, no acne? You want a flawless face? I think I can help you! :)

I'm gonna teach you how to look fabulous and blemish free! Let's start! :)


Step One: Moisturize moisturize! This is THE best solution to avoid a cakey-looking face! I usually get a lot of dry patches between my eyebrows and sometimes around my nose, and it looks horrible. So just take a bit of moisturizer and apply all over face and neck. I like to use my fingers, but feel free to use anything.


Step Two: Foundation! I used about two pumps of liquid foundation for my face and one pump for my neck. I use liquid foundation because I have a combination of oily and dry skin. If you wanna know what type of foundation you should use, click here
I feel using my fingers blends it evenly on my skin. You can use  sponge, or a brush. 
Do NOT forget to apply foundation on your neck! Or you can end up with a different skin tone for your face and a comparatively darker skin tone on your neck.


Step Three: Okay so this step is the little secret to get a perfect even skin tone and hide any redness. What it does is, it neutralizes the redness on your skin and covers up any discoloration. Especially for our skin types, we usually have a lot of discoloration. 
Take a small brush and load it with the orange corrector. Now, dont apply it on your entire face! Or you'll end up looking like an Oompa Loompa! Just pat it on any area that you think needs extra attention. For eg dark circles, uneven skin tone, a blemish, etc.


Step Four: Concealer! Now take a different brush, or use your finger, and pat on the concealer on top of the corrector. DO NOT BLEND! Just layer it on top. Blend the edges of the concealer into the skin.


Step Five: Set with a translucent powder using a big fluffy brush, making sure your strokes are in a circular motion. Annnnd voila!

                               

We have a flawless face! :D  


After this apply bronzer, blush or whatever you like! :)

  11. I wanna buy the concealor of the same brand too. How do I determine which shade would suit my skin tone the best :\ Help me out pls, and does it show in flash photography :( ?

    1. To determine the shade of any foundation or color corrector that I use, I sually test it out on my cheek or sometimes even my neck. I go on and apply, and just wander out and let it set a bit. Take a compact mirror with you. From the shades that I have on my cheek, I check which one is the closest to my skin tone.
      Some say you should get a lighter concecaler and some say get darker one, however I do believe that if the foundation and concealer mtch the closest to your skin color than that's what would give you a natural-no-foundation type look!
      What do you mean by, if it shows in flash photography? As in, would it look too obvious in flash photography? Then no dear, not noticeable in flash photography for me as it's almost the same color as my skin color :)

  12. Thanks for such a detailed reply. Have you gotten your hands on Catrice photofinsih foundation as yet? I was planning to invest in it. Bought Bourjois healthy mix last Eid but turned out that it was two tones lighter than my skin tone, hence investing in it was a sheer waste of money :( I'm a novice and badly need a foundation and concealer which is easy to blend and serves the purpose too. Help!

    1. I havent tried the Catrice photofinish. I want to try the Bourjois one! Also, I have tried the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation and I LOVE it! It covered up enough of my blemishes and since I have oily skin, It gave a nice matte finish, so do give that a shot!
      If not that, then try out Loreals True match foundation, that suited my skin too, although i purchased a slightly darker tone so I couldnt use that so I gave it to a friend :)

    1. The color corrector covers up any discoloration, it helps in getting a better coverage in areas where just a concealer won't do the trick.
