How to Prep Your Skin for Makeup

By daniele

Most people think about putting on foundation, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, and a fun lip color when they think about putting on makeup. But many people don’t think about the steps that need to be taken to get the skin ready for makeup. When you prepare your skin for makeup, it goes on evenly and stays in place. The better your skin looks before putting on makeup, the better it will look. So, before putting on any makeup, clean your skin, put on moisturizer, and prime the skin.


Before applying makeup, be sure your skin is clean and dry. Rub your preferred cleanser into your skin in a circular motion to remove dirt, oil, and other filth.


Think about the last time you exfoliated your body. How great did your skin feel afterward? The skin on your face needs to be exfoliated to eliminate any dead skin cells blocking your pores. Do you have dry skin? Exfoliating can also help remove dry patches, making your skin look uneven or blotchy.


We often forget to use toner as part of our daily skincare routine, but it’s time to add it to your list of products. Toner calms and protects the skin and prepares it for the most crucial step in your routine, moisturizing. Not sure how to use a toner the right way? Use a small amount of a cotton ball to spread the product all over your face and neck in a gentle way.


The next thing you need to do before putting on makeup is to moisturize. While your skin is still a little damp from the toner, put a lot of hydrating serum all over your face. This will help your skin take the product in better. Then, use your favorite moisturizer afterward. Looking for the perfect product to keep your skin moist? Try our Oil for Hydration. This nourishing face oil is made with a lightweight blend of Mediterranean botanical extracts. It hydrates the skin and gives it antioxidants, making it look healthy and glowing.


Cleaning, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing are all essential parts of your skincare routine, but putting on primer may be the most crucial step to last makeup all day. Primer helps make your skin smooth and even and helps your foundation, blush, bronzer, and other face products last longer. When it comes to primer, there isn’t a single formula that works for all skin types. If you want your makeup to last from morning to night, you must find a primer made for your skin type and concerns and use it regularly.

Be Ready To Leap

Your face prep isn’t entirely done yet. Don’t forget to give your lips some love, too.

This colorless, lightweight primer keeps lips moist, smooths them out, and prepares them for any lip look.
