Skip an all over foundation. Cover blemishes with a blemish stick.
Do not use makeup to look older, the results will look harsh and awkward.
Keep colors light and sheer. Aviod heavy eye makeup, like a smokey eye, and too bold shades for lips and cheeks.
If your skin is oily, keep blotting papers handy throughout the day.
To avoid drawing attention to braces, skip bright lip colors. Instead, use a moisturizing tinted lip balm or sheer gloss.
Use a clear brow gel to keep your brows in place.
To master covering a blemish you need too;
1. Choose a concealer stick the exact shade as the shade os your skin.
2. With a clean finger or concealer brush dab the concealer on the blimish and wipe off the surrounding areas. Layer a second coat if needed.
3. Dust a bit of powder on top of the spot.
