Makeup artist Elie Maalouf gives tips on achieving an utterly pretty look

SKIN

Moisturizer
A cream or serum, applied lighly all over the face and neck, should be the first step in your makeup routine. Remember: Hydrated skin is an essential canvas for this soft and dewy color palette. Try this: Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, $32.

Foundation
Translucent coverage gives the most natural results. After applying your moisturizer, test foundation on your chin or jawline. If it blends seamlessly, sponge it on your face and neck for continuity of color. Try this: Chanel Teint Innocence Naturally Luminous Makeup, $55.

Concealer
This camouflaging product should match your foundation. Apply it with a brush to any dark circles, blemishes and broken blood vessels your foundation didn't hide. Try this: Three Custom Color Specialists Concealer, $19.50.
