Preparing your face before Makeup
Your face is a canvas and it is so important to take care of your face on a daily basis. Preparing your face before applying your makeup is a very important step to having a perfect look. So here are a few steps that I find that help me get the look I love.
6 Steps To Prepare Your Face Before Applying Makeup
Wash your face with lukewarm water. Use a soft and mild cleanser to help you even out your skin tone. This will further help make your skin smoother.
You don’t want your makeup to look cakey, do you? So get rid of the main culprit for this beauty disaster – dead skin cells! Exfoliating means uncovering the new smooth skin beneath.
3. Toner or Serum
Once you have exfoliated your skin well, apply a toner or serum and wait for a few seconds for it to dry. Toner is useful for those with extremely oily skin, while serum works wonderfully for those with dry skin as it hydrates the face. This is a step that we often tend to skip but is an important one.
4. Eye Cream
Did you think this step was not important? Think again because this step comes even before your moisturizer. Much like serums, your eye cream is expected to be thin. It helps to moisturize and even out the skin tone around your eyes so that you look more awake. The area around your skin is fragile and thin so make sure you put your eye cream correctly to even out uneven skin tone.
This step is non-negotiable — whether your skin is oily or dry. Before applying makeup you will want to use a light moisturizer to not make the base oily. Make sure you use a moisturizer that suits your skin-type, and offers an all-day hydration. One way to apply it is to press the moisturizer on to your skin instead of rubbing it in. This will allow the solution to properly seep into your skin and stimulate your skin cells..
Primer acts as a protective barrier that prevents your moisturizer and skin’s oil balance from mixing with your makeup. Primer sets the base for a flawless makeup application. Primer also acts as a barrier to fill in any lines in your skin so that makeup does not crease in them.
