Master The Look Of 'Forever Fresh Lang' Without Foundation!
  • We love a good full-coverage foundation just as much as anyone else. But if we can score the same level of flawlessness sans the heavy, cakey feeling of a thick base, we're all ears.

    So how do you master the look of a forever "fresh lang"? There are steps we can take to cheat our way to it without the heavy base.

    Prep, prep, prep

    Massaging the skin with a good moisturizer is a crucial step in makeup application. Score a smooth canvas by applying a gel-based, oil-free moisturizer — this will allow all the products you'll layer on next glide seamlessly.

    Use a high-coverage concealer

    If you hate the heavy feeling of a foundation, turn to a high-coverage concealer. You only need a tiny bit of it to cover blemishes and spots. Apply it on your underye area and anywhere you might have redness. Blend it using your fingertips for a more natural finish.

    Apply highlighter strategically

    It can be easy to go overboard with the shimmer. You can go from glowing goddess to shiny disco ball in just seconds. To get a ~natural~, lit-from-within highlight, use a jelly or cream formula to bring out the high points of your face, aka the tops of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose + the bridge, and your cupid's bow.

    Set your face with a translucent setting powder

    Lightly dust some translucent setting powder on all the areas you applied concealer. Concentrate it especially on your T-zone and cheeks to keep the shine at bay.

    Get a second-skin finish with a setting spray

    To prevent your face from looking matte and flat, spritz on setting spray to bring back the glow.
