Makeup How-To: Apply Foundation

Your step-by-step to flawless skin.



Step 1. Start by applying concealer to the underneath part of your eyes.

Step 2. Using L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup foundation (Lauren is using color Alabaster C-1, $10.95), create 3 dots across your forehead. Then add 12 dots in a W-shape from the top of your cheekbone down to the apple of your cheek, up across your nose, and then finishing at the top of your other cheek almost by your temple. Finally, place 2 dots of foundation above your lip and 1 on your chin.

Step 3. Blend all the dots together using a foundation brush. Pro tip: focus on one area at a time to ensure that all of the makeup is evenly blended.

Step 4: Apply a light dusting of finishing powder to set the face.
