Skin Matters- Improve Your Makeup Application
Updated: Aug 24, 2021
There is no doubt that the secret to flawless makeup application is what is going on underneath the makeup. It is important that we consider how we are preparing and taking care of our canvas before applying makeup.
This is why for every client who books in advance with me (more than 4 weeks ahead of time) I send them beauty and skincare tips to prepare. Of course there are tons of great products and regimens out there. For some it can all be very overwhelming, but no fear... start small and you can always work your way up to a more extensive regimen.
Scroll below to see 3 easy steps you can start now to quickly improve your skin.
1. ALWAYS take your makeup off- Never go to bed with your makeup on make sure to thoroughly cleanse the skin. I love to do a double cleanse which is where you remove your makeup and THEN cleanse with a nice foaming cleanser.
2. Exfoliate regularly- A build up of dead skin can cause dryness, texture, dullness, clogged pores and can prevent your other skincare products from absorbing. A great way to prevent this is to exfoliate at least 2-3 times weekly.
3. Hydrate, hydrate and HYDRATE- Hydrated skin makes the best canvas. The number one cause for uneven makeup application is a lack of hydration. Did you know that a vast majority of my clients have lived their whole lives thinking they are oily when in reality their skin is dehydrated? Excess oil in the presence of texture is a sign you may be dehydrated as the oil is your bodies natural response to the lack of hydration in your skin. Equally as important drinking ample water helps the skin to remain hydrated internally. Both together will result in glowing, healthy, and nourished skin.
