How to achieve a flawless full-coverage look

With age comes wisdom. While your experiences and accolades may have turned you into a better version of yourself, the years aren’t always kind to the skin. With the right full-coverage makeup, you can conceal a multitude of skin-related concerns, including age spots, enlarged pores, and fine lines and wrinkles.
The key to flawless, full-coverage makeup is thoroughly cleaning and hydrating your skin prior to application. Failure to do so will result in a mask-like effect and possibly exaggerate fine lines often found under the eyes and corners of the mouth. You should also invest in a primer because its sole purpose is to help your foundation and concealer stay in place.
