In a hurry? These tips will facilitate your life!
Start with a CC Cream that contains SPF. It’ll hydrate and color correct your skin, this way you can skip the detailed concealing work. It won’t give you full sun protection though, but it’s better than anything.
If you need extra coverage go with a powder or cushion fundation. They come with a sponge, so no need to use brushes or fingers! (more…)

START WITH A SMOOTH CANVAS
- Exfoliate first. Makeup will hold better and depending on your skin type you’ll avoid dry patches or excess oiliness.

- If your skin is dry stick to your regular primer and moisturizer to avoid makeup clinging to dry patches.
