1. Prep your skin with primer. This creates a smooth, even canvas for your makeup to ensure it stays put all day. We love E.L.F. Poreless Face Primer for its matte finish.
2. Apply foundation. Using your fingers, apply a full-coverage foundation to your entire face, always blending up and away from your face instead of towards the center. (Find out how to pick the perfect shade for you here.)
3. Using a small brush, apply concealer under your eyes. Pick a shade that's one shade lighter than the rest of your face, blending it into your foundation so there's no harsh line differentiating the two.
4. Finish with sheer powder. Setting powder is super-important because it keeps your makeup from sweating off or settling into dry patches or on acne.
