"My sister and I always say 'it's all about the foundation' (meaning your skin), so take good care of that and you'll look even better once you apply your makeup."
Choice words from Danielle Powell, a community editor who works with us at the Huffington Post. Admittedly, it was her glowing, healthy skin that caught our attention, which seemed practically free of cover-up.
"I rarely put makeup over my entire face anymore," she told us. "I line the parameter with my foundation, use my concealer on my nose, chin and under-eyes, and use a kabuki brush to blend it all in. Then I sweep blush over the balls of my cheeks. Depending on the day we may get fancy and throw on some lip color and eyeliner. Makeup shouldn't be a mask, and naturally our faces are more than one matted tone from forehead to chin. Little makeup and the right brushes will help achieve a natural glowing look. Less is less, and less is better. I like my face."
