Oh baby. My skin is not flawless by any means. But these three things have really helped it get closer.
1. A good moisturizer – This was a birthday present from my best friend, who knows me enough to know that I needed it and wanted it desperately. It’s a super rich cream that’s meant to be worn overnight, but I honestly have such dry skin that I wear it during the day too. It’s super breathable, and sinks into the skin really well.
2. A great base – Primer. I remember when this kind of thing first made an appearance in the beauty world (and in mine). I have to admit, I laughed. What a way to get us to buy more products! How could they think we would fall for that? But I fold. It’s great. My pores are tiny craters but I hate wearing a lot of foundation, and this stops me from having to. Prime your skin, wear less makeup. It’s that simple.
3. A perfect brush – This brush has changed my life. At the very least, it’s changed the way I apply foundation. It’s stiff but fluffy and blends like you wouldn’t believe. The most important part about getting flawless skin? Buffing in your makeup until it’s invisible. Look for brushes like this that still hold their shape, or go the sponge route to give you a more natural finish. This one is great too.
That’s it. Flawless skin. I always like to start here and go forward to figure out my makeup for the day. Even on the weekends, where I don’t wear much makeup, I always like my skin to stay fine.
