The secret you’ve been searching for!

The key to flawless makeup


It is vital to prepare the skin like a canvas for the smoothest and long lasting application. Exfoliate, cleanse and nourish your skin whether you choose to wear make up every day or not at all. Remember skincare diminishes the need to cover up imperfections. Taking time out to learn and manage your skin will allow further knowledge into what negatively affects it such as diet or lifestyle.



Apart from dirt and texture build up on your skin, not cleansing your skin can also lead to make up not adhering properly to the skin and also not lasting as long. Without cleansing, pollutants will clog your pores, which your leave skin looking dull and even cause breakouts. Most importantly your skin is the largest organ on your body as well as the protective barrier from external elements. Instead of relying on miracle make up products to layer and cover problematic areas, look in to treating problematic areas. Glowing skin is always in.


For example when you are oily in the t-zone, use a mattifying gel to help control the area. On the other hand, moisturizing is just as important when it comes to an oily skin. It needs hydration, or the body tells your skin to produce even more oil, causing your skin to look and feel even more oily .this applies to pimples, premature aging or even dark circles. It’s about treating the problematic areas, not covering them up. The answer to a flawless healthy make up application is in a basic everyday skincare routine. Some may call it vanity, i call it self-love.


Investing time and money into your skincare routine will soon pay off with healthy, hydrated looking skin as well as make up that lasts longer and a glow that shines from the inside out.
