  1. "For flawless looking skin, less is more! You don't have to cover areas that don't need covering. You can apply a bit of concealer underneath the eyes and other problem areas, brush a bit of loose powder, and that's it!" —Sari Campos, freelance makeup artist


  2. "Before you can achieve a flawless look, you have to have great skin. Start with clensing, toning, and mousturizing daily. Then follow the process of a makeup base, followed by concealer, and then set it all with powder. Finish off your look with groomed brows, then blush and a lippie." —Angie Cruz, Shu Uemura

  3. "To achieve flawless-looking skin, start off  by applying toner and after that moisturize, then massage your face for 3mins. Wait until the moisturizer has been absorbed by your skin. Afterwards, apply concealer or corrector to any blemishes or dark spots. Lastly, apply foundation in your skin tone and apply powder in the same color to set the foundation." —Eddie Mar Cabiltes, L'Oreal Academy

  4. "To cover skin discoloration, especially the blueish-grayish area, use a peach-colored concealer or brightener (like the Revlon Photoready Eye Primer and Brightener) before covering the area with foundation. This trick also controls the intensity of the foundation to use. Usually, the tendency of the user is to apply a lot of foundation (thick) until the discoloration/blemish is covered." —Eman De Leon, Revlon


  5. "I would recommend blending brushes! The key to looking flawless is blending, blending, blending! Makeup has to look like it's not there and you just look gorgeous. I recommend stippling brushes for applying your base." —Tatin Yang, freelance makeup artist
