1. Prep first. Apply anti- shine gel to your T-zone, then a primer all over (a green-tinted one cuts down redness).
2. Add foundation. Go for a thick formula but avoid ones with pore-clogging silicones. Smear it on with clean fingers, and pat to blend for a super-natural look, she says. Dot concealer on any spots that still show through.
3. Then set. Apply powder, and use a setting spray to keep it all in place for hours without getting cakey.
4. Complete the look. Add your favorite eye, lip, and cheek color. And voila̿—gorgeous!
