Skin Prep Before Make Up Application

Preparing your skin for make up is essential to achieving a flawless, healthy looking base. Follow my 4 simple steps -

1. Cleanse face and neck to get rid of all the impurities and dirt build up. My Favourite is Olay anti-wrinkling milk. I prefer a milk to a foam or cream cleanser as it makes my skin softer.  

2. Exfoliate 3 to 4 times a week on the face and neck to get rid of the dead skin cells. I use Soap & Glory  - The Greatest Scrub Of All. It leaves my skin super soft and smooth. 

3. Tone - this will  tighten pores so no unnecessary dirt gets in whilst removing any residue left behind by the first two steps. I use rosemary water or thermal spring water as I find toners have too much alcohol in them. 

4. Moisturiser will plump the face and provide a smooth even base for make up. Always make sure to get a moisturiser with an SPF for protection (even though you cannot always see the sun, it is there so always wear SPF to prevent sun damage). 

Follow these steps for that flawless base. Keep an eye out for my next post about reviewing No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush.
