Sometimes the major trick behind a perfect look is not piles of makeup, but a capable knowledge in general aesthetics, a good skin-care routine, and a steadfast understanding of the art of 'flawless blending.' This week, Star Lifestyle takes you through the basics once more.

Where previously makeup was cakey (read pancake) and made one's skin look unnaturally white and patchy, the nude makeup scene has models looking dewy and flawless. The complexion is unapologetically dusky and the foundation has completely blended with the natural skin tone, giving the ladies an out-of-this-world confidence.
