Top-Rated Makeup for a Perfect Complexion
You know those YouTube tutorials showing you how to apply 12 different products to get that perfect, glowing complexion? We're here to tell you it doesn't have to be that complicated! Check out our guide to get your flawless face in 4 steps (or less!).

TIP 1: CONCEAL IMPERFECTIONS

Got a pesky breakout? Dark circles? Or maybe just some unwanted redness? Start with concealer! Remember: for the under-eye area, choose an orange-based concealer (to cancel out the blue undertones). For everything else, choose one that is one shade lighter than your foundation. We like the following four hits for four very different reasons.
