5. Exfoliate your lips.
Exfoliating your lips makes sure that your lipstick goes on fleek. To get rid of dry patches, use a tooth brush to gently scrape off skin cells. You can even use a sugar scrub to get supple puckers!
4. Invest in a skincare routine.
If you have the time, you can do the 10-step skincare routine, but a simple nighttime procedure exfoliate-tone-mask-moisturize should already do wonders for your skin. One of the easiest and trendiest ways to get into masking is to use sheet masks — you put it on, leave it for about twenty to thirty minutes, then take it off.
3. Remember to moisturize your skin!
Keeping skin properly hydrated and moisturized smoothens the appearance of blemishes, which can cling on to your makeup. Provide a smooth canvas for your makeup by using moisturizer, then primer before doing your base.
2. Perfect your base.
A flawless makeup base already halfway ensures that your look is going to be perfect. Remember to pick out a foundation shade that matches your skin the closest. If you can get your hands on color correctors to cover dark bags and redness, do it! Look into baking as well, for the foundation and concealer to set on your face.
1. Wear a primer.
If you don’t own a makeup primer, you really should — aside from keeping your makeup flawless and protecting your pores from getting clogged, it really helps makeup last much longer. If you find yourself in situations where you absolutely have to keep your makeup long-wearing (like an all-day event or a nighttime affair), you can also go for setting spray as an add-on.
