So, let’s jump into the must needed steps of skin prepping before applying makeup:
Making sure your skin is optimally cleansed is the first step in achieving that flawless makeup complexions. Clean all the previous makeup residue, like a little smudge of eyeliner left on the eye corners, thoroughly clean the eyelashes as waterproof mascaras can be hard to remove and then clean the lipstick stains from lips.
Toning is an important second step that completes the cleansing process, and a simple toning with a cotton is all you need to open up the pores and give your skin that natural fresh look. A good toner will remove any remaining bits of oil, dirt, and makeup left behind by the cleanser. More importantly, the toner will help to soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.
Spraying rose water on all over face and neck will also make the skin well nourished and glowing.
To achieve the dewy natural makeup look, moisturize your skin is a key step. I can’t put enough emphasis on how important is this step. No matter what your skin type is, oily or combination or dry, using skin appropriate moisturizer will definitely help you to achieve your desired makeup look.
Finally, the last step in achieving the best makeup prep possible is by using a really great primer. Think of your face as a blank canvas, you cleanse it, make it nicely moisturized and then the primer will help your skin becomes so smooth, that any makeup you apply afterward will beautifully blend and give you the ultimate natural finish.
