How many times have you done your makeup only to realized the outcome to be an absolute fail? Do you ever look at beauty bloggers and wish “I wish my makeup turned out like that?” Yeah, me too. All the time. I’ve done some research and figured out how to perfect the art of applying makeup. It’s the small things that make a difference, honestly. Read on, and you’ll be surprised just how easy it can be through the tutorials.
How to Prepare Skin For Makeup?
Before you actually start with the application of makeup, you need to prep it first. Let’s look at each step involved.
Step 1: Cleanse Your Face
The first step to any skincare routine should be cleansing the face. Choose a face wash that’s suitable for your skin.
Step 2: Use Toner
People might say this is optional. It’s not! If you really want to get into skincare and invest time on it, a toner is a must! This balances the PH levels of your skin and tightens the pores.
Step 3: Apply Moisturizer
Moisturizing is an integral part of skincare. A moisturizer is one of the last products to go on your face during a skincare routine. No matter what your skin type is, don’t skip using a moisturizer. A sunscreen and a primer would not act as a replacement for a moisturizer.
Emergency Skin Preparation
If you don’t have much time to spare, a quick fix would be to use alcohol-free, and perfume-free face wipes to clean your face. This should only be used in emergencies. It cannot be an alternative for your regular CTM routine.
Alright, now that you’ve got the lowdown on cleansing, toning and moisturizing, it’s time to move on to the actual makeup applying process. Read on to find out the secret to having perfect makeup all the time!
