Don’t touch your face unnecessarily. Breakouts can be caused by your own fingers.
Apply cream or cleanser by lightly pressing upward—never down. The delicate skin sags easily enough in time.
For the best color match, test foundation and powder either on your face or neck (the inside of your wrist is too pale).
Use foundation, not concealer (which is lighter than your skin color), to cover up redness or blemishes.
Rouge should be well-blended far out on the cheekbone; circles of rouge don’t look good on anyone.
Before applying powder, gently blow the excess off your brush to prevent flaking.
Never squeeze a pimple. You may damage tissue and cause a tiny scar or pit.
Freshen makeup by pressing a tissue on oily areas of the face— forehead, nose, chin. Then smooth on a thin layer of pressed powder with a brush.
Concentrate blush on the apple of cheeks, the part that puffs out when you smile.
For special occasions, apply your makeup earlier in the day and touch it up before you leave. It will look more natural, and you’ll be less rushed when it comes time to get ready.
Powder is the only makeup applied with a downward motion—you do this to smooth down facial hairs.
To stop makeup from fading during the day, apply a primer before your foundation.
