Flawless Base Essentials

Whether using colour cosmetics to create a dramatic look for evening, or subtly enhancing your features for daytime escapades, a flawless base is an essential starting point. Our three-step guide will ensure a perfect look no matter what the occasion.

Step 1
Begin by priming skin, making sure to tailor your product choice to your skin concern. If you’re worried about dullness and fine lines, apply Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer to help brighten skin and blur out imperfections. Alternatively, if redness or sallowness is affecting your confidence, check out Clinique’s collection of colour-correcting primers.

Step 2
Once perfectly prepped, apply your foundation. For a light result, try Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow Light for an instant burst of radiance. Want a little more coverage? Shiseido Future Solution LX Total Radiance Foundation will create a bright, even skin tone and is also packed with anti-ageing ingredients that will improve your skin over time.

Step 3
Complete your look with a touch of concealer. When applied last, you can take a targeted approach and ensure product is only added where needed. A liquid formula like Tom Ford Concealing Pen or Diorskin Star Concealer is ideal for disguising dark circles, while a product with a thicker, creamy consistency will erase the appearance of blemishes – Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place High Cover Concealer is ideal for the task.
