Flawless foundation starts with well prepped skin! Regardless of whether yours is dry, oily or combination the easiest path to creating a perfect canvas for your make-up is by following these tips:
1) Exfoliate: Use circular motions and cold /warm water to wake your skin up! Working in the same direction as blood flow will mean that toxins can be drained and skin will be plumped up and full of vitality. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is an amazing exfoliator that is gentle for everyday use. You can find it at Dermalogica
2)Cleanse: We all know this one! Most women are comfortable with their cleansers I find. But if you are on the go there are cream cleansers you can use. I use Vitamin Boost Cream Cleanser. For Daily Use I use Kheil’s Ultra Facial Cleanser.
3) Toner: This will clear away any excess oils and leave your feeling ultra fresh. Choose a toner that suits your skin type; if the wintery days are getting to you try one designed for sensitive skin such as No7 Soft & Soothed.
4) Moisturise: During the day skin doesn’t absorb moisturiser as well as when you’re asleep so stick to lightweight SPF formulas to protect against sun damage. Apply only in the areas needed rather than all over, especially if you’re using a primer before foundation. Allow 10mins for this to sink into your skin and you’re all set for a gorgeous flawless finish!!
*Bonus: eye drops applied before eyeshadow can assist with eye goop issues.
They have moisturizing masks for extra dry skin.
**if you are using cotton swabs to blend eyeshadow, to prevent stray fibers from entering the eye slightly moisten before use.
