    How to Wear Makeup - Judith van den Hoek



    Complexion perfecting creams and liquids have the power to take you from natural to supernatural. Knowing how to navigate BB creams, foundations, and beyond is a lifelong skill, because good skin never goes out of style.


    Whether you’re looking for a sheer wash of color or a full complexion overhaul, there’s a base for every skin need.


    This straightforward mix of sheer color and moisturizer supplies subtle coverage and hydration to your face. Best for those searching for a discreet pick-me-up for their complexions.


    The BB in BB cream stands for beauty balm, which marries the benefits of targeted skincare (think: hydration, SPF, and anti-aging properties) with a sheer wash of color. Best for those who want to tint with a focus on prevention and maintenance.


    The CC in CC cream stands for color correcting, making this product group adept at combating redness or sallowness with, most often, light-diffusing particles and a skin-tone-warming tint. Best for those with uneven complexions looking to conceal existing issues.


    The most opaque of bases, foundation provides a uniform color to your complexion. Available in sheer, medium, and full-coverage formulas, it’s best for those looking to significantly improve their complexions in a pinch, or for anchoring more dramatic makeup looks.

    How to


    A good trick for finding the right shade of base makeup (foundation, tinted moisturizer, etc.) is to match it to the skin tone on your neck. You can also use the back of your hand if you’re consistent about wearing sunscreen on your face and are fairer-skinned there than the rest of your body. Leave the product on for a few minutes to see how it adjusts as it is absorbed into your skin. Note that your shades will likely change seasonally with your sun exposure.

    How to


    Using your hands or a large foundation brush, apply a small amount of product to the center of your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Brush the product down to your chin, up to your hairline, and out toward your ears, creating the thinnest layer of coverage at the edges of the face for a seamless transition to your actual skin. If you need more coverage, add slowly. Remember that it’s easier to build up coverage than it is to tone it down.

    TIP • To blend further, buff over product gently with a kabuki brush or makeup sponge, working in small circles.

    TIP • For concentrated coverage under eyes or on blemishes, pat additional product onto problem areas with your fingers.

    How to


    Color-correcting makeup camouflages dark circles, sallow complexions, and redness when applied beneath your base or concealer. And they’re surprisingly simple to navigate.
