First off, everything I know about makeup I learned from youtube. Here are a couple of tutorials on how to do foundation. These are 3 of the artists I subscribe to. I like Petrilude because I need heavier duty makeup. Watch some of their videos and you'll be hooked!

This is how I do my foundation, remember you can stop at any step and add your powder. If you're not comfortable wearing this much makeup then make it accessable to you. I get people asking how I get my skin to look like it does and my secret is LOTS of foundation! Hahaha! All of this is drugstore makeup except the yellow concealor which is Mary Kay.

The things I need to cover are rosacia, broken capilaries, blemishes, age spots, stubble, 5 o' clock shadow and freckles. 

Start with a foundation of your choice. I like the Dream Mousse stuff because it's full coverage and doesn't budge.

I mix a little foundation with my concealor to warm it up and make it less yellow. Put a tiny dab of each on the back of your hand and mix them with a brush before putting them on. It warms the makeup up and makes it easier to apply. Cover any spots you need to, and add some around your nose to tone down the redness. Even if you don't think it's that bad, do this, it makes a big difference!

Next add a light concealor under your eyes and blend it out. I put it between my redness on my cheeks and under my eyes and blend it out from there to cover as much as possible.

Use your favorite blush on the apples of your cheeks and bring it up to the temples. I contour a little bit with a bronzer and I also contour my nose to make it less round and bulby!  Cheesy

Use a brush to apply a powder to set everything and add your brows. I use a light colored powder for even more coverage, but translucent powders are good too.

This kind of thing is trial and error. You need to experiment and play with things to find out what works best for you.
Hope this was useful!  Grin

Top it off with some fab eye makeup and lipstick and hit the town!

Looks good! Wait, did I miss the step with the foundation? Or you do the foundation and coverup together? I've never been able to apply liquid foundation, I always did powder to foundation.

4th pic down with the major nose scar. LOL
I put down the liquid foundation with a sponge, then add the concealor then powders.
