7 Steps to a Flawless Complexion
Want your skin to be free of wrinkles and blemishes? Then it's important to think about how your lifestyle can affect its appearance.
Before you get started with your beauty regime, make sure you drink plenty of water and get lots of sleep to allow your skin to stay beautifully hydrated - this will help your skin to regenerate.
However, with the right products and a bit of know-how, achieving a gorgeous healthy glow is far easier than you might think. Follow these simple steps to help you get a flawless complexion.
Exfoliate to remove any build-up of sebum and dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. Opt for a face scrub that will leave skin smooth and glowing.
Use a revitalising moisturiser each morning to wake up skin for a brighter, dewy complexion. Make sure it has an added SPF to protect skin from sun damage. Apply to your entire face using your fingers in a circular motion, to help boost circulation.
Dip your foundation brush into a pea-sized blob of light-reflecting foundation and, starting at the centre of your nose, blend outwards. Use a makeup sponge to distribute the foundation across skin evenly.
Apply an illuminating concealer in a triangle shape to the under-eye area, to brighten eyes and hide signs of tiredness. Draw the base of the triangle underneath your eye and bring the point of it down to the top of your cheeks. Blend with your ring finger.
To perfect a fresh-faced glow, dab a few dots of highlighter along the top of the cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose and under the arch of the eyebrows, then blend in with your fingers.
Give cheeks a rosy hue with a cream blusher. Smile to accentuate the apples of your cheeks and apply sparingly to build up colour gradually.
Apply two coats of lengthening mascara, focusing on the ends of lashes to create the illusion of extra length. Finish with lip balm.
