Make-up 09 (Face)

Okay girls...So we've covered  the eyes.  Let's move down to the face.  Spring is all about the fresh face.  And we all know how I feel about that...I LOVE IT!  I think that there's nothing prettier than a fresh faced woman.  But again, there are things that we need to do to achieve this look.

Prepping your face is really important.  Starting with a clean, well moisturized face is key.  And please don't forget to exfoliate.  There's nothing less attractive than crusty old skin.  Pick a moisturizer that doesn't leave you shinny.  This can be difficult because most of us produce oil.  So in that case pick a sun block that can double as a moisturizer.  I really like neutrogena products.  They are totally inexpensive and their products do the job beautifully.  Once we're done prepping, we can start to apply.

If you tend to have blotchy skin try a tinted moisturizer.  This will even out your color and give you a clean canvas.  I really like a water canvas made by Vincent Longo.  It's a water based product that does not make you look like you had a fight with the flour.  They make a primer as well as color for the cheek bones.  I recommend putting the primer on first (with a foundation brush), then the color.  This will give you a dewy, youthful glow to your skin.  Keep the color fresh.  In the tones of pinks and berries.  Like we just came in from the outdoors.  

Apply the color to the apples of the cheeks.  (Where are the apples?  Smile, it's the bulging skin on the outside of your nose)  Make sure you use a gentle hand.  You don't want to look like you've been hit with a baseball and that's why you came in from the outdoors!  Remember girls it's about seeing a youthful glow, not a face full of cake.
