With the new season's rising temperatures on the way, it's time to spring-clean winter's heavy foundations from your makeup baga routine Emma Stone
knows well, as demonstrated by her flawless complexion at the New York City premiere of The Croods
. The star's makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Revlon products to create her effortless look, and we love how her skin held an almost-airbrushed effect without appearing too heavy. "To prep her skin, I focused on the perimeter of her face, dabbing moisturizer directly onto her cheekbones, temples, jaw line, and neck," Goodwin said. "Then, I applied foundation to the center of her face, fanning it out toward the edges with a makeup sponge." When recreating a similar effect, placement is key in avoiding a caked-on appearance. Concentrate the foundation over areas that may need extra coverage first, then work your way outward, blending with a makeup sponge or brush. That way, you'll have a matte, even tone, but your natural complexion will still show through.
