While most of the work to banish uneven skin tone, blemishes, redness, and more happens in a dermatologist’s office, not the makeup trailer, Douglass is known for working magic in her chair. Her tips, tricks, and favorite products for a flawless face, under harsh office lights or bright sunlight, below.

Product Pick: “I always start with a moisturizer suited for the actresses’s complexion and press it into the skin with a damp Beautyblender,” Douglass says. “Then, I allow the skin to absorb the moisturizer for a full 10 minutes.”
Product Pick: Douglass stocks her kit with Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer. “It's amazing because it controls oil and creates smooth skin," she says. "It’s a great to way to keep the shine down and make pores appear smaller.”
Product Pick: “This foundation is so easy to work with,” Douglass says. She first applies it lightly, with a flat, synthetic foundation brush to the center of the face. She then fans the product outward, so the coverage gets lighter as it approaches the jaw and hairline. To finish, she pats and dabs skin with a damp Beautyblender sponge to “melt” the makeup into the skin and smooth out any telltale lines.
Product Pick: “This covers almost anything and you can mix it with eye cream for a lighter finish,” says Douglass. Apply the foundation to imperfections with a concealer brush then gently blend with a second, clean brush, for a flawless finish.
