Your skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or time-consuming. If you follow these simple rules, you’ll have beautiful skin and will look like you just walked off the pages of your favorite magazine—every single day!
Before you begin
Before you start applying your make up, be sure to take care of your skin. A healthy complexion is essential for flawless makeup application. Before you do anything else, wash and tone your face thoroughly. You don’t want to put dirty or oily makeup on top of an already-clogged pore! Next, make sure you’re getting enough sleep—the right amount of rest gives your body ample time to renew itself, which translates into radiant skin in no time at all.
I would like to start with your face because it is where you will be concentrating most of your makeup, in fact everything on your face (make up, skin care routine) will depend on how healthy your skin is. Be sure to drink at least eight glasses of water each day and use a moisturizer before putting any make up on. This will ensure that your skin remains hydrated and clean which not only makes applying make up easier but also helps it look flawless!
Eye creams are moisturizing formulations designed to hydrate and improve your eye area. Some contain ingredients that can reduce puffiness and dark circles. While others help tighten loose skin around your eyes, which improves their appearance. If you’re prone to allergies or have dry eyes, look for an eye cream with soothing properties. If you need extra moisture, choose one with hyaluronic acid or avocado oil. Both of these ingredients will lock in essential moisture and reduce irritation.
The easiest way to get gorgeous lips is simply to keep them hydrated. Look for an unscented, petroleum-free balm (try Burt’s Bees) and put it on before bed. You’ll wake up with plump, kissable lips. To give your pout some extra oomph even if you have naturally full lips use an orange or pink lip liner under your lipstick. The color will make your mouth look smaller, thus more proportionate to your face!
