4 Tips for an Even Complexion
One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to makeup is their foundation does not blend well with the skin. If your face and neck color differs, you are not using the right foundation! Here are 4 tips to help you get an even complexion that illuminates your natural beauty. 1. Choosing the right foundation shade This is an important step. I recently post a card on "finding your true skin tone" http://www.vingle.net/posts/701409, you should take a look at that post and find the proper foundation color. Foundation is meant to even out your skin tone. So, if one part of your face is darker than the other consider choosing a color in between the darkest and lightest tone. 2. Try different Undertones Blemish and under eye circles have different undertones. Therefore, use a warm undertone concealer for under eyes and cool tone for blemishes. Apply it over the foundation layer and set it with loose powder. 3. Use the color wheel Green cancels out red - with this fact you can combat redness in the skin by use a green base primer. If you only have certain red spots use a color correcting concealer to get a more natural finish. 4. Keep the texture smooth You don't want to walk out like you have a batter of makeup on. Exfoliate and hydrate is a vital step! If your skin is not smooth any foundation or makeup application you use will look cakey.

Undertones are the part that kills me. My skin has particularly olive undertones that need a lot of coverage, and sometimes it's hard to find the color that matches just right.
The green concealer trick does work. I use it to cover the capillaries near the nose.
