Tips on how to use your skincare to prep for makeup
Beautiful makeup is a result of the care you put into your skin, and if we are all honest your makeup will only ever look as good as the skin beneath it. We often tend to forget about the health of our skin and focus on covering up imperfections or simply the 'finished' look'. Rather we need to focus on the steps to prep our face to sustain healthy skin under a make-up barrier.
Below we have listed 4 easy steps to prep your face before makeup application
STEP ONE: CLEANSE
Before you start prepping your skin for makeup, be sure to start with clean, dry skin. Using circular motions, gently rub your favourite cleanser into your skin, removing any impurities, dirt and oil from pores. We recommend MZSKIN Cleanse and Clarify - The perfect prep to reveal smoother, brighter and more radiant skin.
STEP TWO: TONE
Secondary to cleansing is toning, this step helps to calm the skin, whilst helping to balance skin texture and prepare it for the most crucial step in your routine—moisturising. Apply a small amount of your toner onto a cotton round and gently swipe the product all over your face and décolletage.
STEP THREE: MOISTURIZE
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! An imperative step before makeup application is to moisturise the skin. Apply a generous amount of hydrating serum to your entire face while your skin is still a little damp from the toner. This will help your skin to better absorb the product. Then, follow up with your favourite moisturizer.
STEP FOUR: PRIME
When it comes to all-day makeup, applying primer may be the most essential step - we recommend MZSKIN Lift & Lusture Serum as this works amazingly as a hydrating makeup primer. Primer helps to create a smooth, even canvas on your skin and helps extend the longevity of your makeup.
