All of us want to look beautiful and flawless. We get frustrated once we fail: make-up runs down our faces, cosmetics do not hold and it all together looks just bad. If you wish to avoid such situations, check below to learn how you can prepare your skin for the make-up to come.
Step by step pre-makeup skincare
Appearance and how long-lasting make-up is, depend largely on skin condition and how you take care of it. It is because then the foundation will not cake, mascara will not smudge on the eyelids and all the imperfections will be less visible. If you dream about the perfect make-up, follow these three rules:
- Cleanse is when you wash the skin with a wet or cleansing wipe. This product can help you remove excess sebum secretion and make-up residue. If the wipe is not enough, you can also use some gentle exfoliator. It will ensure smoother and cleanse.
- Toner is another step to restore skin with natural pH. It is best to use toner matching skin type or one that is gentle and recommended for all skin types.
- The appropriate face cream is a base for subtle and long-lasting make-up. You should apply it under eyes, all over the face and cleavage. Choose cream for your skin type, gently tap it in and wait for it to absorb. It is extremely important for the cream to go well with a foundation and a primer.
How to apply the cream before make-up?
Remember not to use half the bottle of the cream at once before the make-up because that is not the way to moisturize skin. A small portion in the size of a fingertip is sufficient. Administer it on to the face and wait for it to be absorbed. If you won’t wait, following cosmetics will cake. What is more, you do not have to choose whether to use cream or primer. Apply both and give them time to set in.
The best pre-makeup cream
Is there one cream that can be called the best? Perhaps it exists somewhere but I have not found it. Now, I can tell a few qualities that cream should have. The good quality pre-makeup product should smoother, moisturize and soften skin. This type of cosmetic is best for people with dry skin. Helpful can be cream with calming properties for sensitive and allergy-prone skin. On the other hand, if you have dull and fatigued skin, you should try illuminating face cream.
