Step 1 Start with a clean moisturized canvas. Apply a foundation primer to the T-zone and blend. A primer is the key in achieving a smooth, flawless look that will last all day. BUY Smashbox Photo Finish Light, $44.
Step 2 Apply a matte-based foundation. For a more even finish, use a foundation brush. BUY Laura Mercier oil-free foundation (lightweight formula), $55, which contains vitamins A, C, and E and is ideal for all skin types.
To compliment your new makeover, set your hair abound in glamourous curls. Using a medium-sized curling iron, curl each strand and set with bobby pins to cool while you apply your makeup. Once your makeup is done, remove bobby pins, comb out your locks with a wide-pick comb, and voila—you’re an instant siren.
