Use a highlighting cream instead of a concealer. “It gives more of a boost,” Blunder tells Us. Blend with a concealer brush. “The area is delicate and can pull if you use your fingers,” she says.

Look for foundations, tinted moisturizers and loose powders that are “hydrating and contain iridescence,” advises Quynh. Or, suggests Blunder, “mix a few drops of liquid bronzer to foundation before applying.”

“Opt for a cream blush,” says Quynh. “The creamy texture contains a little shine, which gives skin a healthy glow.” Use a foundation brush to apply to the apples of cheeks and blend.

Before applying any makeup, use a foundation primer or line-smoothing moisturizer to “even out the surface and prevent foundation from settling into creases,” says Quynh.

Stay away from products that have a heavy texture like solid or powder foundations. And be careful when applying loose powder, warns Quynh. “Lightly dust onto oily areas like the T-zone, but beware: Using too much can emphasize wrinkles.”

Diffuse dark spots!

To even out discoloration (e.g. sunspots or melasma), blend a liquid foundation all over and then “dab a heavy concealer only on dark areas to keep from looking overdone,” advises Ali Larter’s makeup artist Mai Quynh.
