Sunscreen is a MUST! I wear it everyday and my skin has improved so much in terms of even-ing. I also use some cheap vitamin E gel lotion (make sure it's GEL only; it should look clear and have NO grease) to improve my skin's texture. Long term care of skin by using a gentle cleanser and washing thorougly (clarisonic mia!) has done wonders for my skin!
I wear a bit of concealer to even my skin out and mineral veil powder (not actual powder, mineral veil by bare minerals is very fine and covers without being obvious). Choose a powder that's slightly lighter than your face.
I wear a lipstick (nonshiny) that's slighly darker/richer in tone than my lip.
I finish off with a very thin line of eyeliner (no mascara or eye makeup) and voila! You're done!
Also, I don't really use hair products (sprays, mousses, pomades etc area really heavy and obvious) I feel that even if your face is makeupless if you wear really heavy products in your hair it detracts from the natural look a lot.
I basically wear a leave in conditioner/moroccan hair oil and blow dry my hair in the COLD setting. After, my hair is more individual-y than piece-y (kwim?) and oil-free. I like having a little windblown-ness to it.
