I use all these products to achieve glowing, healthy-looking skin. As you may be able to tell, my favorite brands of makeup are MAC cosmetics, Benefit, and Arbonne.
Step 1: Always wash your face before applying makeup. Always, always, always. If you don't, your makeup will trap the grime underneath and as the makeup (even if it's non-comedogenic) sinks into your pores, it will carry the zit-causing dirt down with it. I use both face washes, since I have normal skin. I highly recommend both Cetaphil gentle cleanser face wash and Dove facial bars, for dry/sensitive skin and oily/combination skin, respectively. PAT DRY, don't smear a towel across your face. This irritates and dries your skin.
2. Apply moisturizer with SPF. Yes, even if you have oily skin. Highly, highly recommend Olay's face lotion line. It's amazing for both dry and oily skin types, is very lightweight and non-comedogenic (it won't clog your pores).
3. Apply primer. It smooths the lines in your face so your foundation doesn't sink in and age you or make you look pasty. I use Arbonne's primer; it's phenomenal. Your skin is SO soft afterwards that your hands literally just float over your face when you rub it in.
4. Apply foundation. I like MAC Cosmetics' foundation with SPF. It's pretty lightweight and has sheer/medium coverage. Remember to blend especially well along your hairline, jawline, and eyebrows.
5. Use concealer to hide blemishes. I use both Benefit's BOI-ING concealer and MAC's conealer. For especially red and pesky zits, I'll cover it first with a lighter shade of concealer and then over top of that apply a concealer that exactly matches my skin tone. I do the same for deep circles. Also I apply concealer lightly to my eyelids to act as eyelid primer.
7. Powder oily areas and trouble spots. I'm not yet to the aging process but I use Revlon's anti-aging powder just because it's an amazing, heavy duty product. I don't use powder much because I don't get especially oily, but if you do, this is definitely for you.
7. Apply blush and bronzer. To apply blush, I swirl the brush in the blush and tap the brush on my wrist to get rid of excess powder. I apply to the apples of my cheeks first and work it back to my hairline. For bronzer, I use the same steps to dip the brush in the powder and tap off the excess, then I suck in my cheeks and apply it under my cheekbones to contour and shape my cheekbones. For all over bronzing, make sure you really have tapped it well (!) and start on the apples of your cheeks, along the bridge of your nose, your forehead, and your chin.
8. Highlight your cheekbones, hairline, and nose. Benefit's Moon Beam is literally one of the best makeup products I have ever used. IT'S AMAZING. Use the brush applicator (it looks like a nail polish wand) to highlight the bridge of your nose, your forehead along your hairline, and at the top of your cheekbones from your hairline to underneath your eyes.
I hope this helps you!
