How To Apply Sheer Cover Make-Up

Celebrity make-up artist Daniel Sandler shows you how to apply sheer cover make-up. This is the base you need to have a flawless looking skin, so learn how to apply sheer cover make-up properly with VideoJug.

Step 1: You will need

  • Foundation brush
  • Light shimmery foundation
  • Under eye concealer

Step 2: Foundation

Apply a moisturiser and primer to prepare your skin before putting on any foundation. Apply your foundation with a brush, starting on the central panel of your face and working outwards. Brushes give a lighter, more even finish than sponges, so cover the entire face with light touches. Use longer strokers for the areas of the face that need less make-up, such as the forehead and neck, and shorter strokes for areas that need more coverage, such as the eye and nose area.

Step 3: Concealer

Use a brush to apply your concealer under each eye, and rub it in with a finger. It should move with the skin, like foundation. If the concealer goes cakey, the formula you are using is too dry. Apply around the nose and lips to lock in lip colour and make the lips appear fuller. The concealer should complement and mirror the shade of your foundation. If your primer, foundation and concealer are all silicon based, they will last much longer.
