If you have gorgeous skin it may be genetics, but says Jarman, “If someone's skin is nearly flawless, it's because they work at it, in some way or another.” To help perfect your complexion she suggests exfoliating once a week and applying moisturizer daily. When it comes to makeup, less is more. “If your face doesn't require an all over foundation, just work on the areas you want to lighten or correct—concealer under the eyes, around the nose and maybe a little for your chin or cheeks.”
If you need a little concealer, add it after your foundation. “Most of your coverage will be taken care of with the foundation and you can clean up the other areas with concealer,” says Jarman. Conceal pimples and blemishes by stippling your concealer directly over the area. Smooth the edges out with a clean finger or a q-tip. And keep powder to a minimum, too. “I like to powder under the eyes (to set concealer) and the centre of the face. A little goes a long way,” says Jarman. For the ultimate glow and sheen, mix an illuminator with your foundation before you apply.
