1. Perfect Your Skin With The Morpheus 8 Treatment At Rae Clinic London
Makeup looks its best when applied to smooth skin with an even tone, which is why first on our list is Morpheus 8, a powerful aesthetic treatment that delivers exactly that.
It dramatically improves the tone and texture of your skin, as well as reshaping and sculpting it to leave you with a youthful appearance.
Not only that, it can drastically reduce a host of skin problems from acne scars, under-eye bags, wrinkles, and more.
The procedure uses radiofrequency heat delivered through micro-needles to target the areas in your skin you want to perfect.
And the best part is that it’s a long-term investment, with results that last between 3-5 years.
2. Treat Yourself To Regular Facials
The better the condition of your skin, the better your makeup will look.
To keep your skin looking hydrated, nourished, and well exfoliated, incorporate regular facials once or twice a week into your beauty routine.
From the more effective face peels in salons to face masks you can use at home, there is a range of treatments and products out there to suit your skin type and budget.
So, whether you’re looking to hydrate your skin or treat your acne, treat yourself to a regular facial to keep your skin at its best.
3. Cleanse Your Skin Daily
Cleansing before applying your makeup is a must. It removes any dirt, impurities, and oil on your skin to leave you with a clean and smooth base for your makeup. Just as important, is taking off your makeup every day and cleansing your skin to avoid clogged pores and acne and blackhead breakouts. Most beauty brands have cleansers targeted to different skin types from acne-prone to oily skin, so choose one that’s right for you.
4. Moisturise Daily
After you cleanse, your skin will likely be dry from having its essential moisture removed, and applying makeup to dry skin will leave it looking cakey.
A good moisturizer will hydrate your skin to leave it looking plump and healthy which will help your makeup blend effortlessly into your skin.
Again, choose a moisturizer that’s right for you. If you have oily skin, choose an oil-free or light moisturizer; if you have dry skin, opt for a heavier one.
5. Use A Primer Before Applying Makeup
Now that you have perfected your skin’s tone and texture, it’s time to elevate your skin’s natural radiance to the next level with makeup that’ll leave your skin glowing.
If you want to maintain your dewy look for the whole day, use a primer before your foundation.
A primer will make your skin look even more polished and will act as a canvas by giving your makeup something to stick to, so it can last longer.
6. Choose The Right Foundation
It’s important to choose a foundation that’s the right shade for your skin and the right consistency for your skin type to achieve a flawless natural finish.
To find your perfect shade, test it on your jawline, and choose the closest possible match.
To find the right consistency, consider your skin type: while a dewy formula would be perfect for normal and dry skin, if you have oily skin you may want to opt for an oil-free matt formula to achieve the right kind of glow.
Lastly, think about the coverage: if you’re after a natural finish, we recommend choosing a foundation with light-to-medium coverage.
7. Choose The Right Concealer
A dewy makeup look can be ruined by under-eye circles, spots, and blemishes, which is why you need a concealer to cover up imperfections, even out, and brighten your skin tone.
To choose the right shade of concealer, a good rule of thumb is to choose a shade that is lighter than your natural skin.
Apply it onto your under-eye area and blend it into your skin, to achieve a natural finish that makes you look awake and alert.
8. Use A Highlighter
If applied in the right places, a highlighter will reflect the light as it hits your face, giving your face a luminous glow in an instant.
A highlighter should be applied to the high points of your face such as the cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the center of your forehead, as this is where the light will naturally hit your face.
9. Use A Cream Blush
Unlike a traditional powder blush, the texture of a cream blush will give your skin a dewy look.
Cream blushes are more pigmented which leaves you with more color and is also better for dry skin since it’s more hydrating.
Simply apply it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it along your cheekbones to give your skin a healthy flush to finish off your naturally glowy makeup look.
10. Use The Right Tools To Apply Your Makeup
Last but not least, use the right makeup brushes and tools to apply products onto your face. You want your makeup to look subtle so that no one would even know it’s there.
Makeup brushes and sponges are designed to evenly distribute and blend the products onto your skin to achieve a natural finish.
Follow our ten tips and your skin will be radiating a glow that looks natural and effortless.
Your makeup looks its best when applied onto a smooth canvas, so keep your skin looking its best, before applying makeup the right way to achieve that perfect shine.
