1.) Start with your base: Prime and moisturize your face to ensure an even surface for your foundation. Put concealer on any dark spots on your face or neck that you’d like to conceal. Blend out your concealer with a damp beauty sponge or blending brush. Apply foundation to your face and blend it out. Now is the time to do your brows as well!

Step 1. Base makeup

2.) Let’s finish out your face makeup! Use shade Giverny (warm tan) from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette on a fluffy brush and apply it as a contour- on your forehead, the hollows of your cheek, the sides of your nose.

Add some smaller black irregular solid circles in between the C’s to finish out your spots.
