Celebrity makeup expert Cynde Watson appeared on "The Early Show" with ways to fake that perfect skin.

"Believe me," Watson said, "these celebs that are gracing magazines and red carpets do not all have perfect skin."

But how can you get the appearance of flawless skin?

Watson shared these four steps:

STEP 1

The first thing Watson said she likes to do is apply a base of foundation before she begins correcting the skin.

"You need a base of something to adhere the corrective makeup to," she said.

Watson pointed out the difference between a corrector and a concealer. She said a corrector is a concealer with a peachy/pink hue.

She said, "The peachy/pink color helps contrast the blue, green, purple or ruddy tones on the skin common in dark circles, hyperpigmentation/pregnancy mask, age spots/sun spots, acne scars and ruddy/red patches on the skin."

STEP 2

Using a small concealer brush apply light strokes then tap a corrector directly on the discolored area of your face to balance out your skin tone and avoid making the blemish appear more obvious, Watson said.

Watson said, first apply corrector in discolored areas then layer your foundation or a concealer in the shade of your foundation over the top of the corrector until desired coverage is achieved.

Step 3

Apply a translucent finishing powder to set makeup. It's important to use a translucent powder because it is invisible and won't change the shade of your makeup. If you set your makeup with your regular face powder, Watson said, the areas that you used corrector will appear darker.

Step 4 To keep your makeup from melting or disappearing during the day, Watson recommended spritzing on a makeup finishing spray.
