Bye, Bye, Dry Skin

Happy New Year!  Moisturizing is an important step that helps your foundation goes on smoothly and evenly. Make sure to begin with a freshly washed face, then apply your moisturizer. It’s best applied to a damp face because it goes on more evenly. Moisturizer evens the skin’s porosity and is most effective when it’s left to absorb for a few minutes before you apply your makeup. You can use a light moisturizer or a heavy one; just make sure you choose the right one for your particular skin type.
  • Moisturizers for normal skin are usually light to help even out any dry areas.
  • Moisturizers for dry skin are usually higher in emollients and are richer.
  • Moisturizers for sensitive skin are fragrance and irritant-free
  • Moisturizers for oily skin are extremely light and won’t clog pores.
Many have oil-absorbing properties in them that actually help control the oil. Oily skin needs moisturizer, because it can often be over-dried by cleansers. The body is so smart; it actually produces more oil to compensate for the over-dryness, which only makes the complexion appear greasier. A light moisturizer keeps oily skin from producing more oil and can help even out its porosity.

TIP: Moisturizing your lips before applying lip color will help it go on more smoothly.
