Achieving a flawless makeup look starts with a solid skincare routine. Properly prepping your skin before applying makeup can make a world of difference in how your makeup looks and lasts throughout the day. In this guide, we'll walk you through the essential steps and People's Beauty products you need to create the perfect canvas for your makeup.
1. Cleanse: The first step to a flawless makeup application is starting with a clean canvas. Use our gentle Double-Duty Amino Gel + Makeup Remover to remove dirt, oil, excess makeup, and impurities. Cleansing not only helps prevent breakouts but also ensures that makeup adheres evenly to your skin.
2. Exfoliate (1-2 times a week): Exfoliation is key to achieving a smooth and even complexion. By removing dead skin cells, you'll create a polished surface for makeup application. Choose a mild exfoliant, like our Frontliner Mask + Scrub which contains natural, non-drying Kaolin clay that pulls out impurities and excess oils while our plant-based cellulose gently exfoliates so you do not over-scrub your skin.
3. Moisturize: Hydrated skin is essential for a flawless makeup look. Apply a moisturizer that suits your skin type to keep it smooth and supple. If you have dry skin, opt for a rich, hydrating formula like our Ultimate Rich Face Cream while those with oily skin should look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer.
4. Sunscreen: Never skip sunscreen! UV rays can damage your skin and cause premature aging. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and apply it generously. Sunscreen not only protects your skin but also provides a smooth base for makeup application
5. Eye Cream: Don't forget to show some love to the delicate skin around your eyes. Applying an eye cream can reduce puffiness and hydrate this sensitive area. It also helps prevent concealer from creasing and settling into fine lines. Use our moisturizer or facial dew for the same effect.
6. Lips: Prep your lips by exfoliating with a lip scrub and then applying a lip balm. If you didn't know, our Superfood Facial Dew can also be applied to the lips for plump hydration. This will create a smooth canvas for lipstick and prevent dry, flaky lips
7. Primer: Primer acts as a barrier between your skincare products and makeup, helping your makeup last longer and look flawless. There are different types of primers available, such as mattifying, hydrating, and color-correcting. Choose one that addresses your specific needs.
8. Makeup Application: Now that your skin is prepped with People's Beauty, it's time to apply makeup. With your skin in tip-top condition, your foundation, concealer, blush, and other products will glide on effortlessly, ensuring a flawless finish!
