MAKE UP FOR EVER Special
Contrary to what you might think, it actually takes some makeup to achieve that gorgeous yet natural radiance that celebs and models all seem to have. The key is to even out skin’s texture and tone, without hiding your natural complexion.
To get the look, try a base like MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Step 1 Skin Equalizer ($70 each), which works like a powered-up primer. Available in 11 variations, they can be broken up into two categories: colour correcting and texture correcting. All of them can be used alone or under foundation. They contain Acti Tensor 3D molecules, hyaluronic acid and vegetable sugars which firm, brighten and lift skin to help triple the power of makeup. All of them can be used alone or under foundation to achieve smooth application, optimized colour finish and longer staying power.

Orange, pink, green, yellow and lavender bases are all shades that were once almost exclusively used by makeup artists, but are now must-haves in our beauty arsenal. Like a personal Photoshop editing tool, they can conceal blotchiness, brighten dullness, and alter skin tone better than any foundation can.
Used under makeup, the shades work to “correct” or neutralise specific concerns. The best part? You can use them in targeted areas rather than applying one shade over the entire face. Smooth a pink corrector across the apple of your cheeks as a highlighter to add rosiness, for example, or green to disguise blemishes. MAKE UP FOR EVER has seven colour correcting primers for every different skin tones and need.
To address skin concerns like dryness, enlarged pores and roughness, pick one of the four texture correcting primers. They not only have nourishing ingredients to treat skin, but also immediately refines the complexion. You can use them alone, or under your preferred colour correcting primer.
