I always say, we focus so much on makeup application, and not enough on skincare and actually priming the skin for makeup application. I always think of the skin as a canvas. The smoother and higher quality the canvas is, the better my finished work of art will look. And by work of art, I mean my flawless face. So here’s five important tips that I want to share with you about priming your skin and I want to introduce you to a few good Olay Regenerist products!
- Cleansing is key- It is important to cleanse the face of oil and dirt before putting on makeup. Find a cleanser with natural ingredients and remember, just because it’s expensive does not mean it’s GOOD.
- Exfoliation is important too- Did you know that on any given day, your skin can shed 50,000 skin cells a minute? Unfortunately in my case, they like to stay on my face, especially around my nose and in my brows. Exfoliation is key to sloughing off that dead skin. You ever tried to apply foundation over dry flaky skin? It’s a nightmare.
- A well moisturized face is a happy face!- There’s something about how effortlessly makeup applies on a clean moisturized face. Have you ever tried to apply makeup to dry skin? It’s a pain in the behind.
- Primers are your best friends- Once you have moisturized your face, now it’s time to apply real primer. Primer smoothes the canvas and makes it even easier to apply cosmetics. There’s a primer for foundation, lips, lashes and lids.
Now, let’s meet some products from Olay Regenerist that you should think about using for your priming routine!
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex, $25.99 1.7oz
This is a moisturizer with a satin finish that promises to relax the look of wrinkles and improves the appearance of deep fine lines in 14 days. This is a double duty product because not only is it smoothing the face, it is a great hydrator. The satin finish is a plus because you don’t have to worry about a greasy face.
If you know anything about me, then you know this is a staple in my beauty routine and has been for well over a year. Regenerist Lash Duo smooths the appearance of skin around the eye, and lash serum instantly thickens lashes. I think it’s important that you guys understand that the lash portion of the duo is not a mascara and it will not grow your lashes, but it will make them thicker and it hydrates the lashes.
So think about incorporating these products into your beauty routine.
Tell me, How do you prime? Do you have a skincare routine when it comes to prepping for makeup application?
