Skin-perfecting secrets from a makeup artist

 
Confused about concealer? Wanna make under-circles disappear? We hear ya. That’s why we chatted with one of our fave makeup artists, Gozi Olandu, and snagged her secrets for utterly flawless skin.

 

PLUS we’re giving one girl the ticket to flawless skin with a Clean Scene prize pack from Murad. Read on for the deets!

 

Secret #1: You can so use foundation as concealer.
You should never go overboard with the makeup. To get a look that’s natural (but still covers up your zits), apply a tinted moisturizer. Then, Gozi says to brush on a bit of foundation over any pimples. Buh-bye, blemishes.
 
Secret #2: Cover pimples with precision.

“For zits, you want to dot concealer on the spots,” she tells us. Gozi suggests using a teeny, tiny brush so the spot is totally covered but not gooped on. Remember: never, ever apply concealer to a zit with your fingers—that’s just germtastic. “I absolutely love Bobbi Brown’s concealer,” she swears.

Secret #3: Amazing foundation is actually affordable.
Sure, Gozi’s makeup kit is stacked with fancy beauty finds but she swears you can get gorge results from drugstore brands. Her fave so-not-pricey foundation: Revlon Color Stay. “A little goes a long way!”

Secret #4: Don’t lighten up too much.
“A lot of people mess up their concealer when they try to go too light,” she tells us. If you’re trying to make dark circles under your eyes disappear, find a concealer that matches your skin tone. “You really want to neutralize the area. You should never go more than two shades lighter than your natural skin tone—ever.”
 
Secret #5: Seal the deal with powder.
Whenever you apply concealer, you m-u-s-t brush on some power (either translucent or skin-tone). “Otherwise they move on the skin,” Gozi says. Runaway makeup is never a good look.

 

Win big! Clean Scene by Murad is hookin’ one girl up with a crystal-clear complexion for the holidays.
