Skin prepping before makeup application is crucial to ensure a flawless and long-lasting finish. Properly prepped skin will not only make your makeup look better but also help it adhere better to your skin throughout the day. Here is your guide to skin prepping before applying makeup:

1. Cleanse: Start by cleansing your face to remove any dirt, oil, and impurities that may be on your skin. Use a gentle cleanser that is suitable for your skin type to avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils.

2. Exfoliate: Exfoliation helps to slough off dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover. Use a gentle exfoliator to create a smooth canvas for your makeup application. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate, as it can irritate the skin.

3. Tone: Toning helps to balance the skin's pH levels and tighten pores. Use a toner that is suitable for your skin type to remove any remaining impurities and prep your skin for the next steps.

4. Moisturize: Hydrated skin is key for a smooth makeup application. Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type and apply it evenly all over your face and neck. Allow the moisturiser to fully absorb into your skin before moving on to the next step.

5. Prime: Primer acts as a base for your makeup and helps to smooth out the skin's texture, minimize pores, and create a barrier between your skin and makeup. Choose a primer that targets your specific skin concerns, whether it be mattifying, hydrating, or colour-correcting.

6. Sun protection: Make sure your makeup products contain Sun protection. Avoid titanium dioxide in sunscreen and choose Zinc oxide products instead- help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent premature aging.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your skin is properly prepped for makeup application, leading to a flawless and long-lasting finish. Remember, taking care of your skin is essential for maintaining a healthy complexion and enhancing the overall look of your makeup.
