Minute 1: Moisturise

Begin by gently massaging moisturiser into the skin. It replenishes the skin with a boost of hydration and helps even out and soften the skin, ensuring a flawless makeup application. Then, apply concealer under the eyes for an instantly refreshed appearance. Concealer works by lightening under-eye darkness so use a skin-tone correct formula that's one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

 Minute 2: Spot apply foundation

Apply only where skin needs to be evened out, usually around the nose and mouth areas. Foundation should make you look like you have even-toned, great-looking skin.

Minute 3: Apply blusher

A pop of pink blush on the cheeks is a simple and quick way to instantly freshen up your look. It adds a hint of color and really makes the face come alive. To find your most flattering shade, pinch your cheeks and look at the color that they turn.
