How to apply cream products
According to Morello, we need to stop layering our base products and get crafty with product placement instead.
“All at once, apply your cream products just like this,” she said as she showed off a face full of makeup dots.
"Do it at home by putting pops of blush on your cheeks, bronzer spotted onto the temples, dots of concealer curved under the eye and contour under the cheekbones and nose. As for foundation, place it on the remaining sections of your face that haven’t already been colour coded with another product."

How to use a setting mist
The product Morello swears by for that natural no-makeup makeup finish?
“A setting mist,” she declared to fans.
“This stops the product from drying out so you can blend it. But it also infuses the makeup with the setting power of your setting spray.”
For those new to this step, it’s worth it to get a bit of extra wear time out of all those creamy base products.

How to start blending
From here, Morello uses a flat foundation brush to buff the products in.
“I’m going to start with the concealer because that’s the lightest colour,” the beauty guru explains in her tutorial. Insisting that “it’s really easy to blend because it’s nice and wet from the setting spray”, she does recommend blending your products from light to dark, most likely to prevent the result from becoming muddy.
“I started with concealer, moving onto foundation, then the blush, then bronzer and contour,” Morello explains.
“Along the way, feel free to mist your face as you go to re-dampen everything.”
