Prepping Your Skin

Before applying makeup do you always prep your skin? Prepping the skin is the best way to get more what you pay for. In this I mean, longer lasting foundation. How great would that be, to have the least amount of touch-up throughout the day, and any busy girl would agree less touch-ups=happiness..Now here is a simple checklist that you can use when applying that makeup.

  1. Moisturize. Always moisturize face that has an SPF of 15 or greater. With the added sunscreen you protect yourself from the damage the sun can cause. Let moisturizer set for about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Primer. Applying a primer adds to the longevity of your makeup. It also fills in small holes or wrinkles for a smoother canvas. Some primers even help out even the skin tone for some who have patchy color.
  3. Chapstick. Just as you face is important so are those lips. They can too burn from sun. So always use chapstick, then of course gloss and or lipstick!
Hope this helps with some things you can use before you apply your foundation.
