When it comes to foundation, you really need to take the uttermost care when applying it, and that goes for prepping your skin too. Whilst it seems quick, easy and effective to simply slap your foundation on and head out the door, you may find that it moves about during the day and doesn’t look as fresh as possible. It’s SO important to prep your skin properly for foundation and that goes beyond just applying moisturiser.
One of the most common steps people forget in their makeup
routine is cleansing their skin, but it is also one of the most important. You
don’t necessarily need to do a full deep cleanse using foaming cleansers or
cream cleansers, but giving your skin a quick cleanse before applying makeup is
something that can really help improve the appearance and application of your
makeup as it helps to remove any excess dirts and oils that are in the pores. A
gentle micellar water (I recommend Bioderma Sensibio h2o Micellar Water as it
is gentle but still effective) After cleansing ensure that you “pat” your skin
dry to remove any excess moisture.
