These are the steps that I follow for flawless skin.  This is great for a natural makeup look.  Feel free to enhance the look with any other makeup products you love (eyeshadow, mascara, liner, bronzer, blush, brow pencil, etc.).

Step 1. Scrub your face with Fresh Sugar Face Polish $58
Step 2. Apply two pumps of Reset Yourself Pure Firming Essence $98 and let dry
Step 3. Moisturize with Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex $42
Step 4. After moisturizer is dry, apply Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer $36 and focus on areas that need extra priming (like under the eyes, the forehead, and the indentations along the sides of the mouth)
Step 5. After letting the moisturizer sink in (about 5 minutes), use fingers to apply Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme $45 in a gentle circular motion
