Clean and moisturize your face with a good quality cleanser and moisturizer. Using a thin and light concealer use a makeup sponge to apply a thin layer of foundation to the face covering any blemishes. Apply concealer to the corners of the eyes and under the eyes to cover circles and wrinkles.
Use a matching powder to apply a thin layer to the whole face in order to set the makeup. Carefully make sure you don’t put too much powder on or else you will loose the signature dewy look the Jennifer Aniston often displays.
Find a peach-colored or tawny blush to apply with a wide and fluffy blush brush. Jennifer Aniston has a heart shaped type face, so her blush is applied to the apples of the cheeks; however, you should apply your blush according to your face type.
Close one eye and apply a light color to the lower eye lid. It should be in the same color family as your eye. Follow by applying a tawny color to the crease and blending well with a makeup sponge or light brush.
Pick a deep brown or charcoal eyeliner pencil and apply to the top eyelid and the corner of the bottom until you reach right under the pupil. Locate a high quality, non clumping mascara and apply to top and bottom lashes evenly.
Search for a lip color that is in the salmon or rose-colored family; a lipstick would be best followed by a clear lip gloss to help seal in shine. Finish the look off with an overall bronzer to the cheeks–and a bit on the nose to give you the sun kissed look associated with Jennifer Aniston.
Get your eyebrows professional waxed. Take a picture of Jennifer Aniston to your waxer to give them an idea of how you want your eyebrows shaped.
