Step 1: Corrector/Concealer For very dark undereye circles, start with a corrector to cut through the darkness under the eye. Next, use a yellow-toned concealer one shade lighter to brighten the undereye area.

Step 2: Foundation Apply foundation only on areas that need to be evened out with your fingers or a makeup sponge.

Step 3: Powder/Bronzer Set your concealer with loose powder. If you have an oily t-zone, apply powder to the rest of your face. Dust a bronzer over cheeks, forehead, nose and chin to add warmth to the skin.
Step 4: Blush Smile and dust a neutral shade of blush on the apples of the cheeks. Blend up towards the hairline then downwards to soften color. Layer a pop of bright blush only on the apples for a longer lasting look.

Step 5: Lipstick/Gloss For the most flattering lipstick shade, use the natural coloring of your lips as a guide choose a color that matches or is slightly darker than your lips.

Step 6: Lipliner Line your lips after applying lip color to avoid feathering and add natural-looking definition. Use a lip brush to soften and blend any hard edges.

Step 7: Brows Define brows with a shadow that matches your hair color. Begin at the inner corner of the brow and follow its natural shape using light, feathery strokes. To soften too-harsh brow color, press loose powder onto brows with a powder puff.

Step 8: Eyeshadow Sweep a light eyeshadow color from lashline to browbone using a brush. Dust a medium color on the lower lid and up to the crease.
Step 9: Eyeliner Line the upper lashline with a dark eyeshadow. Dampen the brush before dipping into eyeshadow for a longer-lasting look. Alternatively, use a gel eyeliner. If you line the lower lashline, make sure the top and bottom liner meet at the outer corner of the eye.
