The right moisturizer is the best makeup primer.
While the team at alistbeauty applauds the women who are down to leave the house with nothing but SPF on, You have to start with a solid canvas. In the morning before using foundation, we have found that a hydrating face cream is the only primer needed. Try sometime that extends the hydration of your face all day long and that is oil-free (yet still silky) texture is perfect for layering my foundation on top. This will provide just the right amount of slip so makeup goes on smoothly, but it also keeps everything in place without creasing or smudging.
It’s a form of self-care.
Going through the steps of your skin-care regimen is perfectly fine to take a moment for yourself every day. That minute-long facial massage you give myself with your moisturizer of choice is the ultimate form of self-care over the course of my jam-packed daily schedule. Try to zone out and clear my head while doing it because you will probably won’t have another free moment to relax until your back home at the end of the day.
It makes your feel more confident.
You may start to notice fine lines forming on your forehead. They unexpectedly moved in overnight and set up shop on your face. It’s probably because your not drinking enough water throughout the day, but it’s not a good look for my foundation when it settles in those fine lines. The solution — besides staying hydrated — try a moisturizing mist. It seriously keeps over-sized pores and fine lines at bay since it plumps and glows, even with your foundation on.
The long-term effects are satisfying.
The selfie generation isn’t afraid to experiment with wild makeup looks for Instagram and IRL instant gratification, but when you do a full skin-care routine, it feels like you are investing in your skin’s future. And right now, that future is looking bright — and positively dewy.
