Start with a clean face. If your skin is looking dull, dry or flaky. You must use a gentle exfoliating cleanser. Here are a few of my favorites.
TimeWise® 3-In-1 Cleanser:$18
St.Ives Naturally Clear Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub:$4.29
Mark. Help Wanted Anti-Acne Exfoliating Cleanser:$10
Prime the skin with Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer $36
Jane Iredale CircleDelete® Concealer #2 – Peach $29
Before applying foundation, start by using the darker side (more pink side) of the concealer under the eyes, in the inner eye corners as well as over the lids to cancel out any bluish or purple discoloration. You can apply using your ring finger or concealer brush. After applying, use your ring finger to pat in the product to blend into the skin. Using a concealer that is pink,peach or salmon colored will be the best thing you ever do to remove discoloration in the eye area easily and with very little product.
Jane Iredale The Handi Brush $43
Jane Iredale PurePressed® Base SPF 20 Foundation:$49.50
Apply the foundation in downward short strokes using the brush. If you are looking for full coverage, I recommend layering on the product first by applying in downward strokes…then with the second layer, patting on the foundation.
Jane Iredale POMMISST™ Hydration Spray $17.50
Using one of three available hydration sprays, lightly spray your face from about 12” away. This is a must for setting your mineral foundation, adding moisture and revitalizing your complexion for a flawless finish.
Sigma Large Shader Brush – E60 $9
MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork $17.50
Using the E60 brush, apply a thin layer of this neutral tan/soft brown color all over your eyelids to just above the crease. Then apply extremely close to the lower lashes. Do not apply to the brow bone or the inner corners of the eyes. This product is waterproof and acts as a primer to leave any eyeshadow applied after to last all day without creasing. This is a must have in my makeup kit.
Sigma Medium Angled Shading Brush- E70 $9
Sigma Pencil Brush- E30 $9
Sigma Tapered Blending Brush – E40
mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Tiki $5
MAC Eye Shadow in Espresso $15
Jane Iredale White/Pink Highlighter Pencil $15
Mary Kay Waterproof Mascara $10
Using E70 brush, I applied a wash of the Tiki shadow all over the lid and slightly above the crease. With the E30 brush, I then I applied the same Tiki shadow along the lower lash line. With the Espresso shadow, I continued to use the E30 pencil brush and applied this darker color close to the upper lash line and outer crease area. Then make sure everything is well blended using the E40 blending brush to soften any hard lines or edges. The white side of the highlighter pencil was used in the inner corner area to brighten the eyes. Finish with mascara.
Sigma Duo Fibre – F50 Brush $16
Sigma Large Angled Contour – F40 Brush $14
Mary Kay® Mineral Bronzing Powder in Canyon Gold $12
MAC Powder Blush in Dollymix $19.50
For that glowing skin, lightly dust the bronzer anywhere the sun would naturally hit the face..such as the cheeks, forhead and nose using the Duo Fibre brush. Then smile to add the blush to the apples of the cheeks for a hint of Dollymix color with the angled contour brush.

MAC Lustreglass in Flashmode: discontinued ( a sheer, very pink shimmer gloss)
Apply lipstick first and finish with lip gloss for added shine.
