How to Prep for the Most Flawless Makeup Application

Everyone should have a skin care routine of some sort but even more so if you use makeup or plan on getting your makeup done. Here are a few things you can do to prep for the most flawless application.


1. Exfoliate

Foundation clinging to textured patches or flaky skin is super common when wearing makeup but there is a very simple fix! Exfoliating your skin 2-3 times per week will keep your skin smooth and glowy on the regular and it will give you the best results when it comes time for a makeup application. If you plan on getting your makeup done professionally and do not have an exfoliation routine, doing it at least once the week of your appointment works well enough.

2. Cleanse

Makeup also best adheres to freshly washed skin. Washing your face right before will get rid of any excess oils and impurities that can prevent a smooth application or break makeup down faster. For professional applications,  be sure to cleanse and moisturize your face before heading to your appointment for the best result.



3. Scrub and Moisturize Your Lips

Scrubbing and exfoliating your lips is key to having smooth a lipstick or gloss application. There are various different methods but my favorites are using a lip scrubbing tool or a sugar scrub. Doing this the day before an appointment and keeping your lips topped off with a balm is essential for the perfect pout. Below are some recommended products if you don’t already have staples!
