5 Tips For Flawless Makeup
Multi-purpose make-up-with-the-benefits-of-skincare was a big trend in 2022, and it’s set to explode in 2023 as we seek out products that improve our skin’s barrier function, provide great value and save time on skin prep and makeup in our busy schedules
We’ve rounded up our best industry insider tips and tricks, for exceptional skincare in 2023.
TIP 1: ADD A DROP OF PRIMER TO YOUR FOUNDATION
For a smooth, dewy & glowing base simply add a pea-sized drop of our photo-finish face veil to your foundation and blend into the skin. The result is a dewy, flawless finish to your base for the ULTIMATE healthy glow. Our skin primer contains Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and a skin blurring complex which leaves a peachy glow to the skin. This means you can also wear it on its own for a dewy, natural skin base. By the way, it’s also been featured in British Vogue for the second year running as one of their ‘best primers under £15’ - this product is THAT good.
TIP 2: EXFOLIATE DRY, ROUGH SKIN PRIOR TO FAKE TAN APPLICATION
We all know the importance of exfoliating dry and flaky skin prior to applying fake tan. If you skip this step you risk the tan gathering in those dry areas meaning the finish will be uneven and look ‘dirty’. This occurs in elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles - and between fingers, thumbs and toes. Apply our Gentle Renewal Scrub to these areas, wash it off then apply your fake tan using a mit. Another great tip for this scrub is applying it to your lips to exfoliate dead skin cells, giving you an even application of lipstick.
TIP 3: APPLY ILLUMINATING MASK 5 MINS BEFORE YOUR MAKE-UP
Give your skin an instant glow prior to applying your make-up. Apply our illuminating face mask to clean and damp skin, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse with warm water then follow with the rest of your skincare routine. Containing Glycolic Acid and Kaolin Clay which work to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, leaving your skin bright, dewy and even. It’s a much-loved product so often difficult to get your hands on - watch this space for a back-in-stock message.
TIP 4: APPLY NOURISHING CREAM UNDER FOUNDATION
The perfect under-your-make-up moisturiser, our Nourishing Cream remains a little ‘tacky’ on the skin holding your base make-up perfectly in place ALL day long. Containing Aloe Vera and Apricot Oil, the cream locks in moisture and soothes irritated skin, reducing blemishes and breakouts due to its antiseptic properties.
TIP 5: REFRESHING TONER AS AN ON-THE-GO HYDRATING MIST
A great tip for giving your skin an extra hydration boost on the go - put some of our Refreshing Toner into an empty spray bottle and spritz your skin throughout the day. Toners have a bad rep of stripping the skin of moisture, but our Refreshing Toner provides an instant hydration effect. A little moisture boost whenever the skin feels a little tight, it’s your on-the-go ‘hydration-hero’.
