How to get an even, unified complexion

Beautiful, blemish-free skin - that’s what we all want, right? The problem is that not all of us have been blessed with a perfect complexion. Knowing how to apply makeup properly and take care of your skin can really help though, giving your face a more even, radiant appearance.


Use these makeup artist approved tips next time you sit down to begin your daily beauty routine!


Start with smooth skin

What you do to your skin before you apply makeup really does make a difference. Smooth, exfoliated, moisturised skin is a much better base for foundation. If your skin is flaky, then this will show through your foundation no matter how many layers you apply.


Use L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask infused with charcoal once a week to purify and exfoliate your skin. Before you apply foundation, use a good moisturiser suited to your skin type and a primer like Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser to smooth and blur any blemishes.


Pick the right foundation shade

Look at your skin. You’ll see there are slight variations in colour - the centre of your face is usually darker than skin near the hairline. Choose a foundation that sits somewhere in-between these shades, and vary the amount of foundation you use in different areas.


Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation provides medium buildable coverage - so you can adjust the amount of foundation you apply for a perfectly even finish.

Use colour correcting concealer

Blemishes and under eye circles are different colours, so ideally you need different concealers to cover them. Colour correcting concealer works on the colour wheel principle, where shades that are opposite to each other on the colour wheel cancel each other out.


This means that you should use warm yellow or orange concealer on blue-tinted under eye circles, and green concealer on red looking pimples and irritated skin. Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid comes in 6 shades for all of your colour-correcting needs.


Taking care of your skin is the first step in achieving a better, more even makeup finish. Let your skin breathe. Don’t wear heavy foundation every day, never go to bed without removing your makeup, exfoliate regularly and always use a moisturiser - no matter your skin type!
