• Tools: foundation, rosy cream blush, rosy lip balm, brown eye liner pencil, black mascara, foundation brush or sponge, and small flat concealer brush (or you can use your fingers)

• Apply an even layer of foundation to your skin.

• Apply a rosy cream blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend with your finger tips.

• Line your lash line with a brown pencil and blend with your finger.

• Coat your top and bottom lashes with black mascara.
