COVER UP A BLEMISH
"Choose a foundation colour that matches the skin tone of the blemished area exactly. Take a small foundation brush and apply it in small circular motions to push the pigment on and into the skin. This has the added benefit of boosting circulation to the area. “
"Once the foundation has set I apply a concealer. For blemishes, I like to use a liquid concealer, dabbing it onto the blemish and leaving it to dry for around 20 seconds. I then use my finger or a concealer brush to tap the colour, blending it in and maximising coverage. If need be, I will repeat this process several times, layering on concealer until the blemish is covered completely.
BRIGHTEN DULL SKIN
"Brightening dull skin with makeup is all about highlighting. Apply your highlighter in a V-shape that starts above your brow bone and finishes at your cheekbone – liquid or powder-based products both work well. For all over luminosity, look for skin care products that contain Vitamin C as these will boost allover circulation."

"The skin around your eye area is incredibly delicate, so use a light, cream-based concealer that won’t stick in fine lines. You want to avoid heavy or powder-based products here altogether."
"If your dark circles are caused by tight skin, boost circulation by gently tapping under your eyes – this will whip away any excess fluid and minimise darkness. But, if your dark circles are a result of loose skin or puffiness, apply a cooling eye cream to reduce swelling before patting on concealer."
