The key to looking youthful and radiant after wearing makeup is dependent on how you prep your face before you even start doing your makeup. In order to get a glowing skin and not cake face, it is necessary you exfoliate your skin two to three times a week.
Doing this not only keeps the blood circulation going on in your face also it gets rid of dead skin that is always present on your face, hence it’s necessary to scrub and exfoliate your face religiously. Post exfoliating it is necessary to wash your face with your favourite face wash that suits your skin type and then moisturize your skin with a face moisturizer you know doesn’t break you out and is non-comedogenic
Prepping your skin for makeup Doing face masks on a regular basis removes the impurities and dirt clinging to your face from the daily grind and hence makes your face cleaner. Along with this removing blackheads, takes cleansing your skin to a whole another level. Blackheads are easily formed due to clogged hair follicles hence you can get these removed at the salon or remove them at home by yourself. After doing all this the last step is to make sure your lips are exfoliated as well otherwise lipstick tends to appear to be unsmooth on the lips. The most cost efficient and easiest way to exfoliate your lips is by using your toothbrush on your lips in circular motions to remove the dead skin, in the same way, you exfoliate your facial skin. After completing all these steps, move forward to applying Vaseline on your lips and a moisturizer on your face.
After carrying out all the aforementioned steps it is necessary to keep your entire face moisturized, otherwise, a foundation will cling to the dry regions of your face and result in your skin looking cakey and patchy. Moving on its necessary to start your foundation from the middle section of your face and blend it outwards. It’s good to use the least amount of foundation, for the more you use, the extra effort it’ll take to set it in and may result in you getting a cake face.
Layer on top of layer, cakes up your face and the result is bad, so the key is to keep the foundation in a less of a quantity and go crazy on everything else. Do not forget to blend in your
foundation down to your neck. If you use a beauty blender, press the base into your skin, do not wipe or rub and if you’re like me and you take pleasure in using a brush, move the brush in the circular motion so you don’t get any streaks. This is how you get a perfectly made-up face.
