Create a soft glow for subtle glam look

Matte foundation has its place, but there’s no denying that dewy, radiant makeup has a host of fans. Plump, hydrated skin looks more youthful because it reflects light and has more dimension. If you love a glowing makeup look, then this tutorial is for you.
Base makeup can zap moisture, so start your beauty routine with a hydrating mist. Layer moisturizer and brightening primer to increase moisture levels, and use gold highlighter on your cheekbones to catch the light. Classic smoky makeup complements this dewy base, and rosy beige lips round out the look.

Instructions
1. Spritz your face with hydrating mist.
2. Pat and press a dime-sized amount of pore-refining facial serum onto the oil-prone areas of your face, such as your T-zone.
3. Prepare your skin for makeup by applying moisturizer with your fingers. Wait a few minutes before proceeding to make sure your skin has fully absorbed the product.
4. Apply primer to your face with your fingertips.
5. Use a flat concealer brush to apply liquid foundation to your skin. Press the product into your skin with a damp beauty sponge.
6. Restore brightness to your face by applying concealer with the applicator wand. Apply the product below your eyes, on the center of your forehead and chin, above your Cupid’s bow and along the bridge of your nose. Press the product into your skin with a damp beauty sponge.
7. Set your concealer by pressing loose powder below your eyes with the damp sponge.
8. Swirl bronzer along your cheekbones with a cheek brush.
9. Restore color to your cheeks by patting coral blush onto them with the cheek brush. Apply the product from the center of your cheek outward toward the hairline in a diagonal direction toward the top of your ear.
10. Set your makeup by misting your face with setting spray. Tip: Hold the bottle at least 6 inches away from your face to avoid getting wet droplets on your skin.
11. Accentuate your cheekbones by sweeping gold highlighter onto them with a tapered brush.
12. To cover redness, apply pale yellow concealer to the entire eye area with a buffing brush.
13. Use the blending brush to sweep tawny brown eye shadow onto the outer corner of your lid as well as the crease.
14. Smudge dark taupe eye shadow along your upper and lower lash lines with the pencil brush.
15. Fill in your lower waterline with black eyeliner pencil.
16. Apply one or two coats of mascara to your upper and lower lashes.
17. Hold the false lashes with the tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, then apply the lashes just above your upper lashes.
