Flawless Face

  • Start with a medium coverage foundation and work into skin with your expert face brush using circular strokes for a flawless application.  Nic’s pick is Chanel Vitalumiére Foundation ~$55 (1).
  • Add a soft highlight with a creamy concealer like MAC Select Cover Concealer ~$18 (2) one or two shades lighter than your foundation.  Grab your pointed foundation brush and sweep on under eyes, down the center of your nose, and under brow bone.  Blend into the surrounding areas with light even strokes, letting the brush do the work for you.
  • Choose a contour cream (slightly darker than foundation) and stroke down the hollows of your cheeks with your foundation brush, then blend with short up and down motions to eliminate any makeup “stripe”.  Optional:  blend contour cream along the edge of jawline and/or the hairline of temples to sharpen features.  Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow ~£17.50 (3) is Nic’s choice.
