One of the best tips I ever got about makeup was being taught how to wear it in a way where it enhanced my personal beauty without making me look like the victim of an over-the-top MAC Makeup counter employee.

Fresh face makeup isn’t just more flattering but simple to apply when you are in a hurry in the morning.  Trust me, I know, I’m consistently running late for everything.

With less than 10 products and in less than 10 minutes, you can get achieve the perfect, flawless natural makeup look that models everywhere seem to be born with.

You want to start with a freshly cleaned and face with a SPF over 30.  You’re pretty and young without any wrinkles and you want to keep it that way.  Whatever you typically use will be fine.

After that, you’ll may want to apply some concealer to any breakouts that you have.  Since you’re young, you probably don’t need a lot of face makeup.

In terms of concealers, the best drugstore brand is Maybelline SuperStay 24 Hour Concealer ($7.99).  It won’t get cakey or crackly.  You just need to apply it onto your pointer finger and smooth it out over any blemishes.
