How to Achieve Radiant Skin

Hey Everybody!  Get Excited! Get Excited!! Today I'm going to share with how to achieve radiant skin. Lately, skin has featured a satin finish, looking pure and natural. Everyone is seeking a luminous-looking face. Impeccable foundation is a must, but without heaviness. To achieve radiant skin, it's important to prepare the skin appropriately. The face should be clean and well-hydrated.

When applying foundation, go for natural, fresh-looking skin, pearlescent textures that subtly illuminate, and translucent tones that allow the skin to shine through.

Don't go to extremes on the skin, either with excessive powder or bright shiny finishes. To achieve a perfectly polished look, apply liquid or cream foundation with a synthetic-bristle brush.

Choose blushes in tones that are in harmony with the makeup used on other areas of the face. If skin is dry, opt for cream or mouse textures.

The Best Way to Conceal Blemishes

Great Day! Get Excited! Get Excited!! Thanks for stopping by. Today's topic is how to Conceal Blemishes... Avoiding blemishes is important if you're concerned about your skin’s appearance. Blemishes can be quite unsightly, and many women want to cover them up effectively using concealer. Unfortunately, blemishes are sometimes unavoidable. That's when it's helpful to know the best way to apply makeup to conceal your blemishes.

Concealer is a creamier foundation makeup with added pigments intended for specific parts of your face. Pick a concealer color that matches the shade of your liquid foundation or is a shade lighter. Never pick a concealer shade that is darker than your liquid foundation.

Here’s a quick way to apply concealer to hide blemishes:

Moisturize your face.
Apply your foundation make-up.
Apply concealer directly to each blemish with your finger or a small brush for the best coverage.
Pat the concealer in circles, blending the edges with the skin and foundation around the blemish.
Apply a powder top-coat to help the concealer blend in and last longer.

How to Get Ready in 10 Minutes

Get Excited! Get Excited! Makeup and Beauty Readers... Are you going somewhere special and have a little time to get ready? If so, I'm going to tell you how to transform your makeup in 5-10 minutes. As I can imagine, You've been wearing makeup since 8:00 this morning, so you don't have time to take it all off and start over. That's okay though; with a few touch-ups, you can transform your day makeup into a spectacular nighttime look.

Mary Kay

Let's get started first with Foundation
Use a clean sponge to remove the foundation you're wearing, paying particular attention to the area under your eyes where more product normally accumulates. Next, use a damp sponge to apply a light layer of fresh foundation and blend. Now you have new foundation and a completely made-up face.

Use concealer, but this time use very little product or dampen the brush before application so you don't apply too much. Conceal undereye circles, paying special attention to the inner corners of the eyes and underneath your lower eyelashes. Traces of mascara typically settle in these areas.

Use mineral powder to add light and life to your face; you'll need it after having spent the whole day made up. My favorite: Flori Roberts Creme to Powder Foundation Rather than leaving skin matte, it adds brilliance and freshness to your face. This is one of the products I can't live without.

Here is where you start to notice the transformation a little more. It's very fast and easy, and the result is spectacular.

Wipe off the eyeshadow you were wearing before with a clean sponge and apply a matte, cream-colored shadow over your entire lid. Next, use a damp angled brush to apply black eyeshadow at the roots of your upper and lower eyelashes. The color will look super-intense.

If your eyes aren't sensitive, carefully use the brush to make up the inner rims of your eyes as well, like you would if you were using a pencil. Don't make up the area around your tear ducts; it's best to leave that part clean. Curl your eyelashes and apply two coats of mascara, and your eyes will be stunning.

I always use two kinds of blush: a brownish tone to sculpt and lift my cheekbones and a bronze tone to add color. Don't abuse the blush or it will weigh down your look.

Moisturize your lips and apply a touch of gloss. Leave lipstick for another day, because if you're tired, it will accentuate signs of fatigue. It's better to go natural.

Use an illuminating powder or cream on your T-zone, forehead, chin, and cheekbones. You'll brighten your face and hide signs of tiredness. When doing your makeup, especially in a situation such as this, focus on brightening your skin. Don't skip this step!
