Re: At my wits' end with makeup

I do makeup for smashbox and bare escentials and both of those have great foundations for any skin type and tone. First you need a primer....a primer smooths out any fine lines and wrinkles and creates a nice canvas for makeup application. Then, you would apply foundation with a brush (no sponge, no fingers). The idea of foundation isn't to cover everything up but rather to even out skin tone so don't make sure you don't use too much. The next step is the concealer. You'll need a concealer brush for this but the concealer is almost the most important part of the whole thing. Anything the foundation different cover up, thats what the concealer will do. I put it under my eyes, around my nose, or on any blemishes I might have. Then you will do the powder/bronzer.
