Fresh & Smoky Look Makeup Checklist
Christie Norman shares her simple steps for the base of a bold and fresh look.

In my course on creating bold and fresh performance make-up, I follow an easy step-by-step guide for the base.

Step 1 – Foundation

a. Use any type of foundation

* Find a color to match your skin tone

b. Using your fingers, brush, or sponge, focus on the T-zone area

c. Blend to camouflage discoloration for a seamless look

Step 2 – Concealer

a. Use a flat head, synthetic concealer brush

b. Use small, light strokes using minimal product (build product for higher coverage)

c. Use product under eyes close to the lash line, and gently pat and blend using fingertips or a small blending sponge

d. Lightly cover blemishes and blend with fingertips

Step 3 – Eyebrows

a. Use a pencil or a powder with an angled brush

b. Use short strokes filling in any holes or gaps

c. Start the brow at the outside of the nose – 45 degree angle for the arch – end the tail of the brow at the outer corner of the eye

Step 4 – Eyelid Camouflage

a. Gently pat on concealer to camouflage imperfections and use as a base for other products

Step 5 – Setting Powder

a. Use a loose, translucent powder to avoid cakiness

b. Using a small brush, gently pat under the eye

c. Using a powder puff, gently pat and roll powder onto the face
