How To Do Camera-Ready Makeup

STEP 1: Apply primer to clean face, around eyes, and on the neck with your fingers.

BEAUTY TIP: A skincare-infused primer helps to prevent makeup from settling into fine lines or creases. It also blurs the look of wrinkles and extends the longevity of your makeup. 

STEP 2: Using a damp makeup-blending sponge, apply a nickel-sized amount of BB Cream all over face. Blend.

STEP 3: Apply HD concealer under eyes (in an upside-down triangular shape), down along the bridge of the nose, in between brows, and on the chin. Using the damp makeup sponge, blend the concealer into the skin.

BEAUTY TIP: An HD concealer is formulated differently than normal concealers. These beauty products are designed to create a flawless finish, that is ideal for doing camera-ready makeup for photos. By applying concealer to these parts of the face, it draws light to those areas, which highlights your features in photos.

STEP 4: Using the sponge, set your makeup with an illuminating setting powder.

BEAUTY TIP: An illuminating setting powder is similar to a face powder, but it has reflective particles in the finish, giving you an ethereal, radiant glow. It’s also loved by photographers and makeup artists, as it minimizes the look of pores, wrinkles, and imperfections. That’s why a lighting powder is a must-have for picture-perfect selfies.

STEP 5: Extend the wearability of your makeup and prevent makeup from melting by finishing with a setting spray

BEAUTY TIP: Setting sprays come in a variety of formulas – mattifying, long-lasting, luminous, etc. For this particular look (and to add a “healthy sheen” to the skin), a dewy finish setting spray was used.

STEP 6: Apply a warm metallic eyeshadow to the lid and outer corners of your eyes.

BEAUTY TIP: For a soft, diffused glow, use your finger to apply the shadow. This creates a sheer wash of color that catches the light and adds a hint of warmth to the skin.

STEP 7: Finish your makeup with a warm pink-hued velvet matte lipstick

BEAUTY TIP: For a picture-perfect pout, gently exfoliate lips with a  lip scrub lips before applying lipstick. This will slough away dry, chapped skin, prepping your lips for the lipstick.
