Let’s say goodbye to the likes of blotchy and patchy foundation once and for all, by prepping your skin the right way!
Truth is, even if you invest in high quality makeup products, it all comes down to how you prep and prime your skin before you apply your makeup.
While there are numerous skincare products available in the market, opting for a natural approach can bring remarkable results without any harmful ingredients.
1. Cleanse Your Skin
Just like a piece of fine art, you want to start on a clean, dry canvas. Begin by thoroughly cleansing your face to remove any dirt, oil, or leftover makeup. Choose a gentle, natural cleanser that suits your skin type.

2. Exfoliate To Reveal Fresh Skin
Exfoliation is key to remove dead skin cells and promote a smooth, even complexion, key when applying makeup. Opt for a natural exfoliator with ingredients like oatmeal, or fruit enzymes.

3. Hydrate The Skin
After cleansing and exfoliating, restore your skin's pH balance with a natural toner. A toner not only balances the skin (assisting to regulate oil production throughout the day), but it also prepares the skin to absorb moisture. And the more moisture retained in our skin – the plumper our skin is (goodbye fine lines)
Choose a toner that contains ingredients like rose water or witch hazel. These natural toners tighten pores, whilst also hydrating and preparing the skin for better product absorption.
4. Nourish With A Serum
Serums provide concentrated doses of active ingredients that target specific skin concerns. Select a natural serum based on your needs, such as hydrating, brightening, or anti-aging. Apply a few drops of the serum to your fingertips and gently press it onto your face, allowing it to penetrate the skin. Then wait 60 seconds being applying makeup.
5. Nourish Those Lips
Last but not least – prep your lips with a nourishing lip treatment to ensure flawless, lasting lipstick! Because dry lips can make your lipstick appear flaky, uneven and cause the product to ‘bleed’ into your face. Just be sure to let the product dry and completely absorb before adding in lipstick – it's the last step in the skin prep routine and the last step in the makeup routine so that should cover it!
And that's it – flawless makeup everyday. It’s all in the skin prep, promise.
