Flawless skin is something so many women want but very few can get. Getting flawless skin with makeup is a great achievement, but getting flawless skin without is even better! The better your skin looks naturally, the better your makeup base will look. To help you out, here are some tips on getting both:
Flawless Skin With Makeup
Prepare Skin Properly
To get flawless skin with makeup, you need to prepare your skin properly. You should cleanse, tone and moisturise. You could even exfoliate if you have dry skin or if your skin looks a little dull. Let your moisturiser sink in before applying anything.
Primer helps to reduce the appearance of imperfections, and will keep your makeup in place much longer. You should notice a big difference when you apply primer and when you don’t! You don’t need much for it to help.
Use a Brush for Foundation
Don’t just apply your foundation with your fingers; apply it with a brush. A brush will help you to ge in all of the nooks and crannies and give a smoother look. If you need to, you can smooth over with your fingers afterwards.
Practice With Concealers
Coloured concealers help address any problems you have, such as dark circles and red spots. You apply them under regular concealer, so you can’t even tell you are wearing them. They help to neutralise colours, to help your skin look even and smooth. You won’t need all of them, but some of them could be just the product you’ve been after.
Use Makeup to Suit Your Skin Type
Just like skincare products, different kinds of makeup will suit your skin type too. Make sure you’re not using products that will make oily skin appear even more oily, for instance. Speak with someone on a beauty counter if you’re unsure of your skin type.
Flawless Skin Without Makeup
Keep Up a Consistent Routine
Make sure your routine is consistent, and you don’t switch products too often. Never sleep with your makeup on and just make a real effort to look after your skin! Be consistent and you should see some great results.
See a Professional
If you have specific skin problems, you can always see a professional. They offer treatments designed to solve most skin problems, so don’t be afraid to look into them. The right treatment might change your life!
Eat Properly and Exercise
You can’t expect to have great skin if you don’t eat properly and exercise. No amount of makeup or cleanser will solve bad skin through eating greasy food. Overhaul your diet and make sure you include more vegetables. Get some exercise in, even if it’s just a short walk daily. These sorts of things can make a big difference over a period of time!
