The Ultimate Skin-Loving Makeup
You Have It. Enhance It.
Makeup is about doing something good for yourself. It’s about putting your best face forward and feeling good about yourself. As women, we try to eat right, exercise, set goals, and be our best, which makes us feel good. And when you feel good, you want to look good, too! Makeup allows us to be bold or be subtle by putting our own creative spin with what we want to express. Feel alive, feel beautiful, feel sexy; and remember YOU have it. Enhance it!
Primer is a liquid, gel or cream used to smooth out your facial skin. It is applied before foundation or powder to diminishes fine lines for a smooth canvas and allows your makeup to last longer. A good primer has multiple uses and should be applied after you clean and moisturize your skin.
Whether your skin is dry, oily, or combination, use a day moisturizer with antioxidants and make sure it has an SPF of 30 or higher. Moisturizing is key, and if you have fine lines, moisturizing is even more important because it will actually keep the skin plump and hydrated. Make sure your moisturizer is suitable for your skin type and use it every morning.
After moisturizing, apply a good primer. Primer is actually the “secret sauce” here. A good primer acts as a barrier and keeps your skin from absorbing your makeup, dirt and pollutants. It smoothes out the surface of the skin for a flawless makeup application. If you’re having problems with your foundation settling into your fine lines or wrinkles, use a primer first and you’ll see the difference. Here’s what you should do:
At night, while you sleep, focus on repairing and renewing. Use a cream suitable for your skin type and if you have aging skin, use one with retinol to stimulate collagen production. Lastly, try not to ever let your skin get dry. Wrinkles form and set in when the skin is dry, so stay moisturized!
A good primer can be used with or without makeup, so make sure you moisturize and then add your primer to seal it in. I recommend Retexturizing Face Primer by Skone Cosmetics, which is a lightweight serum with opalescent light reflectors that diminish lines and makes your skin super soft! It’s packed with vitamins A & E and works well on all skin types. So, whether you’re trying to hide fine lines or protect your skin from absorbing your makeup, a primer is definitely the way to go.
Understanding your skin and what really works will take your makeup application from looking made up to looking flawless and beautiful!
