Fresh Face Tutorial

I wanted to write a little fresh face tutorial just in time for Easter. This would be a great look to wear on Easter Sunday or even to work. The look can be accomplished in 5-10 minutes so enjoy!

Fresh Face Tutorial
1.     Face: Choose a lightweight concealer and foundation to even out skin tone and conceal blemishes.  You can use a tinted moisturizer, mineral foundation or take your favorite moisturizer and mix it with your foundation to make your foundation have sheer to light coverage.  Set the face with a light dusting of HD powder
2.     Blush: take a blush brush and a blush color (similar to the shade of your natural blush shade). Remember that rosy cheeks make you appear younger and more youthful. Apply the blush slightly higher than your cheekbones from the hairline to the apples of the cheeks. Keep a very light hand and feather strokes. By applying slightly higher than your cheek bones you give the appearance of a lifted face and higher cheek bones.  
3.     Eyes:  To keep your make up looking light and natural define your brows with a brow powder or pencil following the shape of your brow using light hair like strokes to fill in sparse spots. Then apply a single natural and neutral shadow on the lid. I like a cream color or a skin tone color that just gives the lid a bit of definition.  Smudge black or dark brown liner into the lash line to give the lashes the appearance of looking fuller and thicker but not looking like you have eyeliner. Curl lashes and finish with a coat of lengthening/ mascara.
4.     LipsFinish with a pink or peachy toned lipstick one that compliments your natural lip color and instead of applying from the tube as you normally would, use your finger to dab on the color and give your lips a very light touch of color. Then add just a  little  gloss to the centers of the lips giving them a fuller effect. Press lips together and you are done.
