The secret to a successful makeup look is a great makeup base that paves the way to endless possibilities and styles. And since all our days start with a small makeup routine, why don’t we go over this procedure step by step in order to ensure perfection? Let’s go!

  • A skincare routine that is tailored to your skin’s needs is the key step to making sure your complexion is ready for the rest, and only your dermatologist can help you curate the selection of products that answers these needs. To take your look to a whole new level – think of a special occasion, for instance, pair your skincare routine with a sheet mask and a massage that take into consideration the nature of your skin.
  • Next step would be priming your skin. While some like to skip it, others find that their complexion is in need of it. If you belong to the second category, you need to find a product ideal for your skin’s needs. We love Benefit CosmeticsPOREfessional Face Primer for oily ones, or Dior’s Backstage Face & Body Primer for dry ones.
  • Now, it’s time to apply your foundation. The best option would be the one that feels like a second skin on your face. Luckily for us, CHANEL’s Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch conceals all the imperfections thanks to its buildable, light-to-medium coverage, while evening your skin tone.
  • Next up is the blush, which is a real game changer – adding a healthy touch to your look. Choose a color that looks like you’ve been sitting under the sun for a few hours before getting dressed. Just like us, you will absolutely love Gucci’s Blush de Beauté and our favorite shade would be 05 Rosy Beige.
  • Now the highlighter! Adding touches of luminosity to your look is a very important step, and all you need is a cream highlighter that provides a natural shimmer like Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Crown’d.
  • Last but not least, lightly apply some translucent setting powder on the zones that are most likely to get shiny, and M.A.C CosmeticsPREP + PRIME Transparent Finishing Powder is made just for that.

Now, get your eyes ready and go through your day!
