Step 3: Next, apply a pore-perfecting primer with a foundation brush, helping reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines while creating a barrier that will help control shine.

Step 4: Apply a pre-eye shadow cream with a small cream brush on the eyelids to help prevent shadow from creasing and moving under the heat of the lights.

Step 5: Take notice of the client’s skin tone and lighting before choosing shades of concealer and foundation. Use correcting/concealing makeup to adjust uneven skin tones. Use green over any redness, purple over yellow tones and peach over blueish tones.

Step 6: Apply mineral photo-ready concealer with a small cream brush underneath the eyes to camouflage dark circles and diffuse light, taking focus away from skin imperfections.

Step 7: Apply an oil-free matte foundation in a shade matching the client’s skin tone with a clean foundation brush. Use downward strokes to ensure that tiny hairs on the face will not be lifted.
