Step 1: Apply Foundation
Prep the face, then apply Makeup Forever HD foundation using a round buffing brush. Dab it evenly on the skin, then work it in circular motions into the face, making sure you get around the nostrils and under the eyes.
Step 2: Apply Concealer
Conceal any redness using Ben Nye Concealer. Use a colour which matches your skin, but is a few shades lighter. Apply under the eyes, then buff out the edges using a foundation brush. Apply concealer the same shade as your skin to any other red patches and blend in.
Step 3: Apply Bronzer
Apply Sarah Geller bronzer using light sweeping motions to the area under the cheeks and up onto the cheek bone.
Step 4: Apply Blusher
Apply Crown blusher in Peach to the apple of the cheek, just over the top of the line of bronzer. You can build up the blusher in layers, so you don't have to apply too much at a time.
Step 5: Apply Powder
Apply Ben Nye Banana Visage using a duo fibre face brush. This brush will help distribute the powder evenly across the face. Apply in circular motions to the whole face to give a nice matte finish.
Step 6: Apply Concealer To Eyes
Apply Benefit Stay Don't Stray concealer to the eyelid, from the lash line to the brow bone, and work it in. This will help the eyeshadow stick to the eyelid and stop creasing.
Step 7: Apply Eye Cream
Apply Makeup Forever Aqua Cream to the eyelids using a fluffy crease brush. You need to work fast with these creams as they will set.
Step 8: Apply Eyeliner
Apply Urban decay eye pencil under the lash line on the bottom eyelid, and above the lashes on the top eyelid, joining together in at the tear duct. Do not apply it to the water line. Use a small brush to sweep over the eyeliner to soften it slightly.
Step 9: Eyebrow Powder
Use an angle brush to apply the dark chocolate colour in the HD Brown palette to the eyebrows. You just want to sweep this product through the natural shape of the brow to make it look fuller.
Step 10: Apply Lipgloss
Apply Vivo lipgloss to the lips using a lip brush.
Step 11: Curl Eyelashes
Get your eyelash curlers in position over the eyelashes, then clamp them shut and push in towards the eye to avoid pulling any lashes out.
Step 12: Apply Mascara
Apply Makeup Forever mascara to the lashes, making sure you really get the mascara into the roots. Apply more mascara to the tops of the lashes to get an even fuller look. Finally apply mascara to the bottom lids to help the eye look more open.
