How to Have Perfect-Looking Skin Using Minimal Makeup

So you just got your paycheck, and you’re mulling over the thought of splurging on some fab make up.  Sounds like a totally awesome idea, although in the world of beauty, sometimes- or rather, most of the time- less is definitely more. Even with just a little makeup, you can appear as if you have perfectly blemish-free skin.  If you want to magically achieve that head-turning, peaches and cream look, here are some tips you should follow:

A little moisture goes a long way, so never scrimp on moisturizer.  Whatever type of skin you have, well-moisturized skin paves the way to stunning skin. After you’ve put on your moisturizer, let it sink in before you go to the next step: applying primer.

Primer helps make the surface of the skin smooth, and evens out skin tone.  They also fill in fine lines and reduce shine.  Primer, like tarte’s clean slate poreless 12-hour primer, is an answered prayer, as it doesn’t clog pores and has anti-aging properties.

For a little extra coverage on stubborn spots, hang on to your trusty concealer. Use your ring finger to rub on the tip of a concealer stick, and then gently dab under your eyes, on blemishes or on any imperfections you want to hide.

Then you can move on to putting on some blush. Tarte’s Airblush maracuja blush seems to work well at giving you a natural-looking flush.  It seems as if the blush was airbrushed on your skin.  The shimmer doesn’t overpower at all.

Applying just a bit of makeup keeps everyone else second guessing as to whether or not you actually have any makeup on.  They can’t quite put their finger on it, but they’re certain there’s something different about the way you look.  It almost gives off an air of mystery.  Because your skin looks flawless to them, you feel confident.  And we all know that nothing is sexier than that.
