Prime eyelids all the way up to the brow bone with a cream concealer in a color that matches your cheeks (skin around the eyes has a different tone). Line top lids with a soft black eye pencil and smudge with your finger. Sweep a shimmery mocha tone over lids, a deeper espresso from the outer corner of eyes into the lid crease, and a champagne shadow just below the brow bone. Blend.

First mask dark circles: Mix eye cream with concealer and pat it along your under-eye area. Combine a few drops of liquid luminizer with your liquid foundation, then blend the mixture onto skin with a brush or sponge.

For a healthy flush, dust a shimmery pink blush onto the apples of cheeks.

For a sheer crimson stain, use your finger to smooth a matte red lipstick over lips. Top with a translucent lip gloss to make it pop.
