Peachy makeup look for Olive skin featuring BUFFING TECHNIQUE

I recently created this peachy glow look for a shoot. I was happy with the overall look so decided to write about it on the blog as it's perfect for girls with medium/olive skin tone.

The main tip for a summer makeup look is to use the right primer and less foundation. regardless of your skin type. Adding layers of foundation could end up making acne marks or bumps more prominent. You want to use concealer for the covering and the buffing technique is whats seals the deal with this summer look that will last you all day and night!

Skin prep
- Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
-Giorgio Armani master fluid primer - This primer doesn't have the typical chalky feeling that most mattifying primers have. It has a silky skin like feeling that allows your foundation to glide on and blend perfectly.

Acne scars and colour correcting
For redness from pimples and skin I use a green corrector because it has something to stick to (primer)
pressing it into the skin rather than rubbing it. If there is discoloration (under eye circles) or uneven skin around the mouth add a orange tone corrector.

Foundation & Concealer
I used a light layer of Makeup Forever foundation blending it with a beauty blender slightly dabbing so i do not disturb the colour correcting under it.
For under eye concealer I used Charlotte Tilbury retoucher concealer and set with a loose translucent MAC powder.

Sculpting the face
I used Sleek cosmetics cream contour to define nose and cheekbones, blending with a beauty blender until naturally blended into the skin. 
I used a cream Sleek highlighter on top of powder by blending it with my fingers gently. 
Also adding this cream highlighter down the nose and on cupids bow

on the eyes I like to use creams.YSL metallic cream in number 4 as the base and Golden goddess eyeshadow palette by Charlotte Tilbury. 
Mac Zoom lash mascara

Setting contour and buffing technique
I used Rodial Contour powder in number 3 to set cream contour
Style Blusher by MAC
To set and buff everything I used MAC mineralise skin finish natural in medium with a big brush starting down from the neck working my way upwards in circular morion blending everything and going over everything except eyes. This technique sets everything and helps even set the glow. 
Makeup takes around an hour to set and this technique is what helps your makeup last until you decide to take it off.
