#1 Prime with moisturiser

Regular primers are great for making your makeup last longer and keeping oiliness at bay, but to get glowing, bright skin, use a moisturiser to prime your skin instead!

Moisturiser under makeup will give you that gorgeous glow from within.

#2 Conceal any under eye darkness

Even if your skin is healthy and radiant, having dark under eye bags will make your overall complexion look dull. Cover your under eye area and you'll notice that your complexion is immediately brightened.

Don't lose hope if your dark circles are particularly bad, we've found five high coverage under eye concealers that also has a natural finish!

#3 White eyeshadow

Don't forget your eyes too! If you have some darkness around your eyes besides the under eye area, you can brighten it up with a shimmery white eyeshadow. Apply it on your brow bone, at the inner corners of your eyes and right under your lower lash lines.

#4 Highlight with a lighter shade of concealer

Apply a concealer that's a few shades lighter than your skin tone to the high points of your face like your nose bridge, cheek bones and forehead. This will make your face look brighter and more defined.

Top it off with a light dusting of the traditional shimmery highlighter for an extra glow!

#5 Don't apply too much foundation

Most ladies don't realise that their skin has a natural glow even for those who have dull skin, and applying a thick layer of base makeup hides it. Apply a thin layer of foundation that creates a natural finish or skip this step entirely!

#6 Dark lips
