BeautyMint is sponsoring Makeup Monday for the month of August, and since I’ve already covered my skin care routine, travel skin care, and defining your brows, this week I’d like to talk about enhancing your skin. Clearly (no pun intended), the first step to getting great skin is to have a solid skin care routine – but even those blessed with seemingly perfect skin might need a little help now and then. Enter, the magic of makeup. But we’re not going to be hiding our skin beneath a mask, we’re just going to enhance it. Since my friend recently gave me the handy, all in one Too Faced Natural Face kit, I decided to follow their “day glow” card, step by step. Want to learn how to recreate this look? Keep reading after the jump.

After moisturizing and applying beauty balm (or your foundation choice), conceal where necessary. I had a little bit of that lovely undereye circle action, so that’s where I applied it.

Next, apply cream blush to the apples of your cheeks. Don’t know where that is? Smile!

Lightly dust bronzer across your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.

Highlight under your brows, on your cheekbones, on your cupid’s bow (above your lip), and lightly on your chin.

I also added some liner, mascara, and a touch of lipstick (I dabbed it on and smudged it with my finger for a hint of color). That’s it!
