Create a glowing, radiant makeup look

Achieving naturally radiant skin isn't always easy. Even people with great skin struggle to maintain a healthy glow. Thankfully, makeup options have evolved, and several products exist that can fake that glow instantly. Concealer, bronzer, blush and highlighter are central to this fresh look, and pulling it all together is a breeze.
Glowy skin isn't the same as oily skin, so apply primer, foundation and setting powder to even out your skin and keep natural oils under control. Because a single shade of concealer can look flat and obvious, try using two different shades to achieve a custom look.

Instructions
1. Apply a small amount of primer to your face, and rub it in gently with your fingers.
2. Apply foundation to the back of your hand, and dip a concealer brush into the liquid and transfer it to your face. Buff the foundation into your skin with a fluffy foundation brush. (By applying the foundation with the concealer brush initially, you’ll avoid using too much product. It will also make it easier to get good coverage in tight spots around your nose.)
3. Use two different shades of concealer to achieve a customized color. Apply each shade below your eyes with the concealer wand, and use a damp beauty sponge to press the concealer into your skin. You can also use concealer to highlight the cupid’s bow and brighten the tip of your chin, bridge of your nose and center of your forehead.
4. Tap loose setting powder into the lid of the jar, and dip a damp beauty sponge into the powder. Press the powder against the areas where you applied concealer, as well as other areas of your face that tend to get oily.
5. Warm up your complexion by dusting bronzing powder along your cheekbones with a fluffy cheek brush.
6. Apply pink blush to your cheeks in a tapping motion with the fluffy cheek brush. Start at the center of the apples of your cheeks and work upward toward the ear in a diagonal line. Blend the edges fully to diffuse the color and eliminate harsh edges.
7. Fill in your lips with rose nude lip crayon for a natural look.
8. To ensure your makeup lasts all day or night, set it by spritzing your face with setting spray. Hold the bottle at least 6 inches away from your skin to prevent the mist from leaving wet droplets.
9. Dust highlighter onto the tops of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and above your cupid’s bow with a highlighter brush.
