Like all the good things, to have a nice flawless make up, you need to prepare for it. You need to make sure that your skin is clean and moisturized before you can start applying your make up.
Below are some vital steps you should take before putting on some make up;
1. Wash Your Face
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser that has no harsh ingredients and won’t leave your skin feeling like the desert. So for example, you should look out for products that don’t contain fragrance, alcohol, or parabens. Once you’ve found the product that’s right for you, wash your face thoroughly and rinse with warm water.
Exfoliating allows you to remove dead skin cells and reveals a fresher, smoother surface for makeup application. All you need to do is scrub in small, circular motions and then rinse with warm water. If you don’t already own one, make sure to get yourself a good exfoliating scrub with tiny granular particles.
3. Spray A Light Mist Of Rose Water For Extra Moisture
Regardless of whether or not you have dry or oily skin, adding a mist of rose water can actually absorb with the moisturizer into your skin and add a natural glow, rather than just sit on the surface. This would definitely boost the look of your makeup when you apply it.
4. Apply Your Primer
Applying primer is fairly easy and it has a ton of benefits. For example, it can hide acne scars, allow for a smoother look, help decrease sweating, and even help your make up last longer throughout the day. Regardless of your skin type or skin color, using primer will literally work wonders, so make sure to apply primer where it’s needed.
5. Moisturize Your Face
You need to be careful with this step, because you don’t want to overdo it by lathering too much and rubbing it on your skin. Instead, use a small amount and gently press the moisturizer onto your face. Your skin will look fresh and soft. Plus, the pressure from your fingers will promote blood circulation and give you a natural glow.
