Blemish free, perfectly toned skin is reserved for the very young. As you get older, bumps, spots and even wrinkles make their uninvited appearance. This is the reason so many teens and young women look to makeup artistry for help. Get a flawless makeup look in just a few steps. Your skin will look younger and smoother with the right preparation and foundation. Daily skin maintenance will keep bumps at a minimum. Good makeup coverage will finish and protect your skin every time you wear it.
The key to good makeup is to start with a clean canvas. Applying makeup to oily and bumpy skin is inviting disaster. Tiny bumps and blackheads are not easily hidden by any type of makeup. Use an at home microdermabrasion treatment to remove the dead skin cells, erase bumps and eliminate blackheads. Expect a few skin eruptions after the treatment. Microdermabrasion works on several layers of skin so if you have a blemish waiting to erupt, it will force it up. Use this treatment at night but never before a big day like a work presentation or the prom. Microdermabrasion is key to keeping skin young.
Daily maintenance for skin includes a gentle cleanser and an oil-free moisturizer. Never sleep in your makeup. Remove makeup every day with a cleanser before bed and wash your face before wearing makeup. Apply a moisturizer daily. Moisturizing first allows makeup to go on smoothly giving you a flawless makeup look.
Apply a concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone to the dark spots and blemishes on your skin. A concealer gives added coverage to problem areas that you wish to hide. Dab the concealer onto your fingertip. Rub the concealer directly on the problem area. Tap the concealer into place. Concealer is not makeup so do not apply to your entire face.
For a flawless makeup look use crème to powder makeup. Swipe the makeup sponge across the surface of the makeup. Wipe the makeup on your skin starting at your forehead. Apply makeup to your eye lids and under eyes next. Than apply makeup to the rest of your face. Blend in the chin and neck area to prevent makeup lines. For a more flawless makeup look match your makeup perfectly. Here is a tip. When shopping for makeup, never compare swatches to your arm or hand skin. Skin on your body is always darker than skin on your face. Compare makeup by doing a cheek test. Compare the palette color to the cheek of your face. This gives a better guide for the perfect tones.
