For any look, gorgeous looking skin is the foundation. However, getting that flawless, airbrush finish isn't always as simple as it looks. We asked the experts at Chantecaille for their tips.

David Cleevely is Chantecaille's lead makeup artist, helping to lead masterclasses as well as training the Chantecaille team on all the latest launches and how to make the most of their makeup. He knows all there is to know about perfecting your look.

How to Get Flawless Foundation

Flawless doesn't mean full coverage.

Flawless can be achieved by gentle layering. Moisturise the skin first, then apply your primer and foundation.

Remember to always apply in downward strokes; it keeps any baby hairs from sticking up, so your skin looks naturally smooth.

Make sure to set your makeup with a powder like the Chantecaille H.D perfecting powder.

To finish and make sure your skin doesn't look powdery, mist gently with pure Rosewater. Rosewater is amazing for the skin, sets make up and is unusually uplifting, resulting in effortless beauty.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
