I often get questions about how I do my base and why I use this and that and so many products, etc.
So I was thinking why not do a blogpost about how to achieve a perfect base?
Let’s hop right in:
Step 1: Starting with the skincare
Taking really good care of your skin is like the most important thing to do. Makeup can cover skin problems, of course, but it can most often not help them to get better. And to hide some problems may takes a really thick layer of coverage, which is also not that great for your skin because your skin needs to be able to ‘breathe’ throughout the day in order to stay clean.
Check out my Skincare routine (that post also contains infos for dry skin) for this step!
Step 2: Primer
Prime your skin to first to smooth it out, hydrate or mattify it and to have a barrier between your skin and your makeup. This will help your makeup to go on a lot smoother, to stay on longer and to keep everything nicer in place.
There are different primers for different problems and skin types. For example, I have oily skin with a lot of texture and prominent pores so for me, primers with silicon are the best since they even out skin texture and fill in your pores.
