Although you might think that it is unnecessary, always start your makeup off with a primer foundation because it makes a huge difference. Primer foundation has that natural healthy glow which enhances your complexion. It also gives a good base before slathering on your foundation on top as it makes everything sticks nicely on.

Now foundation gives a nice clean coverage to your face. It is recommended to apply it with a makeup brush rather than your own fingers. With a makeup brush, paint your whole face covering those imperfections. Do take note to choose a foundation shade which matches your skin tone.

3.Concealer

After you are done putting those bases on and cover all the areas needed, set everything with powder. Translucent powder will definitely give you that smooth matte look that you are aiming for and can last for long hours. But do keep a compact powder in your bag to have touchups throughout the day.

5.Highlighter
