How to Prep Your Skin for Flawless Makeup Application

A representation of flawless skin

Creating a flawless makeup look on your face is (or at least has to be) the purest form of art known to man. The slightest bit of mistake during (or before, for that matter) makeup application can result in your skin appearing cakey, cracked, patchy, or flaky. In the worst-case scenario, you may even find your makeup oxidizing during the day to make up appear relatively close to a chameleon. It’s best to err on the side of caution if you wish to achieve the so-called ‘glowing skin’; follow this guide to prepping your skin correctly:

1. Exfoliation is Your Best Friend

Start your skincare regiment with clean skin that’s been washed using a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry and go in with an exfoliating product (such as a chemical peel, tool, or scrub) to remove the dead skin cells from the surface for a smoother finish.

It’s also a good idea to layer on toner after cleansing but before moisturizing the facial skin as it prepares the skin to absorb all the hydration being offered.

2. Hydrate like You’ve Been Thirsty for Ages

Once you’re through removing the dirt from your skin, it’s time to rehydrate the skin using the right skincare products. Moisturizers are a must for drier skin types, but serums do the trick when it comes to plumping and rehydrating the skin. As for sensitive skin types, it’s recommended to use eye cream for additional under-eye hydration.

3. Assign Prime Time for the Primer

There’s a primer for every skin type, and you just need to make a conscious effort to find the right one. This is one product that guarantees that your makeup will stay intact throughout the day. It’s also pore reducing and shine-free, so you’re very likely to feel the difference of having applied a primer instantly!

4. Massage It Up and Into the Skin

First things first — you don’t need a 10 or 20 step skincare routine for that effortless look. The key is to work with a few products but really get it into your skin using different massaging techniques. Don’t layer on makeup on top of skincare products that haven’t been fully absorbed into the skin.
