Complexion is key.
Wilson emphasizes that before putting any makeup on, you should prioritize a solid skincare routine for a smooth canvas. Then, your approach with application should be less is more. “Only put [makeup] where you need it and blend it out. Use what you already have to your advantage,” she says, “If you already have red in your cheeks, boom, you don’t need blush so don’t cover that. It’s beautiful.”
The whole point of the look, Wilson explains, is to make it look like your actual skin. Product placement is key—focus on specific areas over opting for a full-face, full-coverage application. She adds, “Using your fingers to apply the makeup will be very helpful.” For reference, see the no-makeup makeup she recently did on To All the Boys I Loved Before‘s Lana Condor below. Goals.
