How to create a flawless face

Most of us have suffered from spots at some point in our life. Now that I'm a little older, I'm lucky that my skin has really cleared up and I feel confident in wearing no make-up. However, when I'm going out I like the 'flawless face' look where I have a sort of blank canvas to build up a look. In order to create a flawless face, I like to conceal blemishes and use a light or yellow based concealer under the my eyes to hide any dark circles I may have. These are the few products I use to create a flawless look ready to apply the rest of my make-up.

First off I like to apply a moisturiser all over my face to make my foundation glide across my skin more easily and provide a base for my foundation. I then use The Body Shop's Pore Minimiser to close/fill any open pores to make my foundation look even more flawless.

As I suffer from oily skin, I usually stick to matte foundations which have a medium to full coverage such as Revlon's Colourstay Foundation for oily/combination skin (I use shade 'Sand Beige'). I use a stippling or buffing brush to blend my foundation such as Real Techniques Stippling Brush. 

I then apply a light or yellow based concealer under my eyes to high any dark circles. If the dark circles won't cover, I'll apply YSL Touche eclat in 1.5 over the top as it is a very yellow based concealer it will counteract the darkness under my eyes. I often blend my concealer with a beauty blender or my fingers depending on how I'm feeling that day. I will then apply concealer to any blemishes I may have. I often find using a concealer which is the same colour as my foundation works best to hide blemishes. I use Maybelline's FIT ME concealer in '10' and I will blend with my finger or the pointed end of a beauty blender.

I will then finish off by using a big fluffy brush to sweep a powder over my face. I use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 'Transparent' as it sets my foundation and keeps my face matte all day. I also find it helps reduce the transfer of my foundation to clothes.

  12. My favourite products to create a flawfless face at the moment are: Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, which I wear in 'shell,' MAC's prep and prime translucent setting powder and Sleek's highlight and contour kit. My make-up seriously does not budge using these three products, especially if I prime as well!
