  1. Prep your skin

For your makeup to look luxe and expensive and your foundation to look at its best, you need to prep your skin by ensuring you moisturize morning and night to keep it supple and smooth, creating a perfect canvas.

  1. Use a primer

Nothing says luxe and expensive quite like flawless makeup. Avoid smudges and creases by investing in good primers, which will ensure you will have a flawless base to work with. Get the ones that are water-based, not heavy and minimizes any lines and redness to create a smooth natural looking skin.

  1. Get the right tools

Using your fingers to apply your makeup won’t give you the luxurious, flawless finish you’re after. Instead you end up distributing oil and germs from your fingers to your face. To avoid that, apply your base using a foundation brush or sponge for a flawless airbrushed effect. And apply the rest of your makeup using their respective tools as well.

  1. Keep it dewy

If done incorrectly, matte foundation can leave your skin looking like mask as it wouldn’t allow your skin’s natural radiance to shine through. So, try to stay away from matte foundations, and go for more lightweight options instead, to help give off a dewy look. If you’ve oily skin, then set your foundation using a sheer pressed or loose translucent powder a finely milled translucent powder that will leave your skin looking flawless.

  1. Use highlighters

Add a touch of highlighter and the end of your beauty routine, will leave you looking bright and radiant with a healthy glow which is necessary for a luxe makeup look. Look for highlighters that add a natural looking shimmer.

As you can see, creating a luxe makeup look for less is quite simple, requiring only a handful of products, the right applicators and an understanding of how best to apply makeup.
