1 Before you begin, make sure the face is cleansed well. Exfoliate if needed, wash with a gentle cleanser and dab dry. Start off with a tinted moisturiser for that flawless, yet moisturised, fresh look. Cover up any spots, patches or acne scars with a concealer to match your skin tone. If need be, dab spots of foundation and work this well into the skin. Alternatively, dust a very thin coat of compact or loose powder on to the face.
