Get that perfect, dewy glow

Gone are the days of heavy foundation and mattified finishes - when it comes to make-up, it's all about achieving that perfect dewy glow - your skin, only better! Many of us shy away from foundations and base make-up though, often to avoid the dreaded orange-faced look, or worse, uneven applications and tidemarks. Well, help is at hand - this video shows you how to achieve that flawless make-up base, covering everything you need to know from application tips to finding that perfect shade.

We also look at additional products that'll help to support the overall effect including primers, concealers and powders. In this video, make-up artist Rachael Karen guides you though creating a flawless base on 3 different models. We've used women we know rather than professional models which we hope will encourage you to try this at home.
