Start by exfoliating
Getting your bare skin glowing will make it easier to get gorgeous skin without caking on makeup. Start with an exfoliating treatment to buff off any dead skin. “If you get off the dry skin, you get that smooth surface for when you apply makeup,” says Hannah Baylog, lead makeup artist trainer with Blushington makeup and beauty lounge in Dallas. Don’t miss these face-washing mistakes you didn’t realize you were making.
“No-makeup makeup is all about the skin, so it’s very important to have very hydrated-looking skin,” says Mariah Jere, market manager, and makeup and hair stylist for WarPaint International Beauty Agency. Start with a toner or rose water, then add a lightweight moisturizer—ones with hyaluronic acid tend are good for all skin types, she says. Don’t make these makeup mistakes that make your skin look dry.
