Creating the perfect base
For make-up to look flawless you must first create the perfect base, which means starting with your skincare. Think about it; if your skin is oily then your make-up is going to slide off your face and if your face is dry, then your make-up will sit within flaky skin, creating a patchy finish.
For this reason it is essential to never skip your skincare routine before applying your make-up. Follow the basics; cleansing to remove dirt and impurities, exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and moisturising to optimise hydration. It may seem obvious, but choose products designed for your skin type to tackle dryness or oiliness head-on.
Allow your moisturiser to sink into your skin for a few minutes before applying your base cosmetic products, otherwise you risk the make-up not absorbing properly and either sliding off the face or gathering in patches.
Apply your cosmetics in the following order; start with a colour corrector to even out your skin tone, follow with a concealer to hide spots and under-eye circles, then apply a foundation that is most suited for your skin type, before finishing with a face powder.
Whether you choose to apply your products with make-up brushes or your fingers, ensure you blend everything in seamlessly to ensure a flawless, natural finish.
