3-STEP PROCESS FOR CREATING A CLEAN CANVAS
Just as an artist starts with a clean canvas for a brand new painting, before applying any type of makeup, it is best to start with a clean face, free of any marks or blemishes.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
STEP #1 / COLOR CORRECTION CONCEALER PALETTE
Before applying foundation makeup, you must color correct any blemishes if present with concealer. If the blemish is red use a concealer with a more yellow tint and if the blemish is purple or blue, most often found under the eye, use a concealer with an orange-peach tone in order to correct. A common mistake in makeup application is using a lighter color concealer under the eye, however this will only highlight the under eye circle and make it more pronounced.
Once the color corrections are made, you will use the concealer in your natural skin tone to go over these blemished areas and blend them into your natural skin shade. In order to find the best concealer for you, try different colors until you find the one where you cannot the see the difference between the applied shade and your natural skin. Apply the concealer makeup by patting it on problem areas using a synthetic concealer brush. Be sure to always use a clean brush when applying a new shade of concealer makeup.
