Every woman wants a healthy, dewy glowing skin, but it is a struggle in winter due to the cold and damp affecting our skin.
But according to London-based celebrity makeup artist Emma Osborne, with few well-selected brushes and a good concealer you can keep your skin radiant during the colder months.
Emma worked with A-listers like Chrissy Teigen, Emma Watson, and Nicole Scherzinger, she explained how you can enhance your natural beauty in just six simple steps…
First, you need to prep your skin.
Emma said: ‘Prep your skin with a matte primer (not an illuminating one) as you’ll want to create the perfect canvas for this naturally radiant look.
Then you need to apply the concealer.
Emma said: ‘If you’re looking for the best way to get rid of dark circles under your eyes, you need to invest in the best concealer you can get your hands on.
‘Choose a highly pigmented concealer – the right formula will disguise under-eye bags and work with your skin type.
‘EX1 Cosmetics Delete Fluide Concealer works for very fair to deep tan skin. This concealer formula contains 25 percent pure pigments, making it one of the highest coverage concealers in the world.
‘Apply seven dots under each eye starting from the inner corner of the eye working outwards. Don’t use too much, it will collect in the creases of the lower eyelids.’
Next, blend with the right brush.
Emma said: ‘A soft, short brush lets you blend out your concealer naturally. It has rounded, fluffy bristles as opposed to the stiff, flat concealer brushes you’re probably used to seeing.’
For best results, Emma advises ‘blending the concealer outwards.’
When you’re done blending, finish it off with the sponge.
‘Using a sponge can help diffuse the product and work it into the skin so it blends seamlessly,’ Emma explained.
‘Choose a latex-free sponge, they effectively avoid product absorption and keep a maximum color payoff and provide a smooth, airbrush effect.’
After, choose the right foundation.
‘Always use a creamy hydrating foundation which will work in synergy with your skin,’ Emma recommends.
‘All too often I see people getting this wrong,’ Emma says, mentioning that people tend to pick a foundation that oxidizes and dries up.
Lastly, you need to apply the foundation.
‘Dab foundation on the center of your face and blend outwards, make sure the amount of product doesn’t build up around the hairline creating a heavy look,’ she advised.
‘Keeping it light and natural will give the illusion of dewy healthy-looking skin.’
Emma says picking the right brush is key to good makeup, as ‘the kind of foundation brush you use completely changes the finish you get.’
She suggested trying to find one with the full coverage of a paddle brush and the blending abilities of an airbrush.
