Flawless Makeup Starts With Great Skincare

Many of us simply think of our skin as a cosmetics canvas, but did you know that your skin is considered an organ? In fact, it’s actually the largest one we have. So, having flawless makeup is more than a matching foundation and a perfect lip color. Flawless makeup begins with great skincare.

Here are two easy things you can start doing today to get your skincare game up:

Make it a habit. Build a daily and regular skincare routine

The healthier your skin, the more effortless your makeup application will be. Every girl should have a daily skincare routine, it doesn’t have to be fancy, but it should at least consist of a cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen and exfoliant.

Exfoliate AND moisturize your lips

One of the most common complaints I receive from friends and clients is around their hate/love relationship with matte lipsticks because while it offers the desired high pigmentation it “dries” out their lips. The source of the issue may not lie in the lipstick. Remember your lips count as part of your daily skincare routine. You should exfoliate them at least 3 times a week, every day if needed.

Great skincare is a lifestyle choice. It doesn’t mean you will go through life without a blemish or wrinkle. It simply means you’re deliberately stacking the deck so the odds are in your favor…healthy skin will NEVER go out of style.

Cheers to Healthy Skin,
