Look soft and sweet without eye shadow

One of the prettiest looks you can master is the barely there softness of lightly blurred skin, a hint of color and wide-awake eyes. Before you drag out every item in your makeup kit, listen to this: You can achieve this gorgeous, natural look without a stitch of eye shadow.
Soft makeup is all about blurring imperfections and playing up your best features. For this look, you’ll focus on evening out your skin, warming it up with a touch of bronzer and a kiss of blush, and brightening your lips with a rosy pink shade. Do your brows, of course, and add a few coats of mascara, but leave those 30-shade palettes in the drawer. With this look, you won’t need them.

Instructions
1. Apply primer to your face with your fingertips. Wait a minute for it to fully absorb into your skin.
2. Outline your brows and fill in missing hairs with brow cream. Use an angled brow brush for precision.
3. Apply foundation to your skin with a foundation brush using downward strokes.
4. Restore brightness to your face by applying concealer with the applicator wand. Apply the product below your eyes, and press the product into your skin with a damp beauty sponge.
5. Set the concealer by pressing setting powder below your eyes with the damp sponge.
6. Swirl bronzer along your cheekbones with an angled cheek brush.
7. Restore color to your cheeks by patting pinky coral blush onto them with the angled cheek brush. Apply the product from the center of your cheek outward toward the hairline diagonally toward the top of your ear.
8. Apply two coats of mascara to your lashes. Complete one eye at a time to prevent clumping.
9. Apply rosy pink multistick to your lips.
