Find Out How To MakeUp For A Perfect Finish

A flawless look is dependent on the condition of your skin which begins with cleansing and moisturizing.  A routine of twice-daily cleansing, morning and evening is a must.   Most importantly, establish a daily routine that suits your personality so you can make proper skin care a habit.  Some people are low maintenance while others are high maintenance.  I personally am high maintenance.  I want my skin to look its best, so my skin care maintenance regime is a five-step program not to mention all the extra correction and prevention creams I use and/or layer on my skin which pay off.

 The most important steps are:

  1.  Cleansing.   Thorough cleansing is the first step to beautiful skin. 
  2. ExfoliatingExfoliation loosens the dead surface cells and removes excess sebum.  People with large pores require deep cleansing to improve clarity without stripping away essential moisture.  This should be done at 2-3 times weekly.
  3. Sun care.  Prolonged sun exposure increases the risk of burns, premature aging, photo-damage and even cancer.  Your first line of defense should be a powerful, broad-spectrum sun care protection against harmful UVB and UVA rays.
  4. Moisturizing.  Moisture retention and skin metabolism decline as we age, resulting in dull, dehyrdrated and hyper-sensitive skin.  A great moisturizer helps soothe irritated skin and helps fight the visible signs of aging, while providing optimal moisture retention.  Your skin should feel softer, smoother, and look radiant.

 Steps To A Flawless Finish

 It’s always good to stay current with makeup trends so you don’t date yourself.   So what is being seen on the runways?   The “dewy” looking, natural faces of the past season are out and matte, flawless faces are back in.

 Pick the proper makeup formula.  Think skin-type as well as the type of coverage and finish you want.  If your skin is dry or mature, opt for types with a creamy texture.

  • Select the right shade.  The makeup shade that matches your skin color perfectly should disappear when checking it in direct sunlight or when standing by a window.  Checking shades against the “inside” of your wrist is worthless.  I know as I’ve done that and the shade is always wrong.
  • Eye-color.  I prefer to apply my eye-color before using foundation on my face.  This allows me to remove any eye-color residue that has fallen on my face.  Using pre-makeup or foundation on the lids adds to the eye-color staying put.                                                                  
  • Mascara and Eyeliner.  Use your mascara and eyeliner of choice to highlight, brighten, and define your eyes.
  • Pre-Makeup.  A perfect moisturizing base for your makeup application, pre-makeup helps your makeup stay on longer and can aid in absorbing oil.
  • Application.  A freshly moisturized face will work best when applying your makeup.

Dab the makeup on uneven spots, under your eyes, around your nose and mouth, smoothing it out lightly with a sponge.

  • Concealer.  Contrary to what you’ve been told.  Concealer works best following your makeup application.  Just dab where you see it is needed and smooth out lightly using a sponge.
  • Cheek color.  Apply  cheek color sparingly and use the most natural color you can find on the apple of your cheeks.  Be forewarned.  The wrong color can add years to your age.  Lighter is better than too dark and too heavy an application.
  • Finish.  End with a translucent powder along your t-zone which sets your makeup and helps prevent shine.
  • Lips.  Outline your lips to give them definition and use a moisturizing lipcolor for added hydration and protection.
