No one likes to look like they are wearing pounds upon pounds of makeup. That is why a more natural approach to makeup will never go out of style. Learning how to give your face the appearance of a fresh flush is a great stepping stone in going au natural, in a way.
To get the less is more look you need to start with a good foundation. Exfoliate your skin with a facial scrub such as Burt Bees Citrus Facial Scrub. Afterward, apply moisturizer and primer, then use a lighter base foundation to give you coverage without looking majorly covered up.
