Let’s face it; for most of use, makeup is a real godsend that we wouldn’t leave the house without! It conceals flaws, accentuates our most attractive features and makes us feel better about how we look. The success of your makeup application does not simply depend on the quality of your cosmetics and techniques, however.
It is equally important to prepare the skin so as to provide the best base possible for your concealers, foundations and blushers etc. So, how can your morning skincare routine help to make your makeup look its best?
- Always start with cleansing! Use a cleanser that is suited to your skin type, that doesn’t strip the natural protective barrier from your complexion, and make sure you wash your face thoroughly.
- Follow with an exfoliator that is gentle enough to use on a daily basis, like Daily Microfoliant. This will brighten and smooth the skin’s surface, meaning makeup will glide on to your skin much more evenly.
- Moisturise your skin in order to make sure your skin is hydrated and plumped up before you apply makeup. The surface will be softer and smoother, offering better results.
- If your skin needs a little extra help, use a Concentrated Booster designed to address its particular problems. Oily skin can benefit from using products like the Oil Control Lotion and the Clearing Mattifier, as they will reduce shine and enable makeup to stay put.
If possible, leave a enough time for your skincare products to completely absorb into your skin before you start to apply your makeup. Your makeup will look better and the skin beneath will be prepped, protected and happy!
