Start by exfoliating
Getting your bare skin glowing will make it easier to get gorgeous skin without caking on makeup. Start with an exfoliating treatment to buff off any dead skin. “If you get off the dry skin, you get that smooth surface for when you apply makeup,” says makeup artist trainer, Hannah Baylog.
“No-makeup makeup is all about the skin, so it’s very important to have very hydrated-looking skin,” says makeup and hairstylist, Mariah Jere. Start with a toner or rose water, then add a lightweight moisturiser – ones with hyaluronic acid tend are good for all skin types, she says.
Prime your skin
Applying a primer before makeup will help your makeup last longer. “Primers have different purposes depending on the formulation,” says Jere. “The variety of primer depends on the skin type and what you want the end results to be.” Assess your skin type, then decide whether one that’s smoothing, oil-controlling, or colour-correcting is best for your needs.
