3 Easy Skincare Steps for Flawless & Lasting Makeup

3 Easy Skincare Steps for Flawless & Lasting Makeup

Struggling with makeup smudging off, caking or pilling? Want your foundation to sit fixed and flawless on your face? Keep your makeup hang-ups at bay with these 3 easy pre-makeup skincare steps!

Pre-makeup skincare is, in fact, crucial to maintaining makeup that stays fixed and lasting. Keeping your skin moist before applying foundation can prevent powder from caking or showing due to dryness; proper hydration also helps with reducing bumps and pores on your face for a smoother, more adhesive base makeup.

Not just your everyday skincare routine? Tips for quick yet effective pre-makeup skincare:

Overly moisturizing products will weigh your skin down and can lead to pilling or powder caking. Try to center your pre-makeup skincare routine around products with light, refreshing textures; those with oily skin types in particular may want to avoid rich creams and lotions.

Quick Pre-Makeup Skincare Step 1: Toner Mask

After cleansing, wet a cotton pad with your toner, place it on your cheeks, forehead, the sides of your nose and your chin, and leave it for at least 5 minutes. Once your skin is fully moisturized with the hydration in the pad, continue with the rest of your routine.
To further shorten your skincare routine, you can opt for toner pads instead.

Imbued with Australian tea tree leaf extract, this moisturizing and soothing toner pad controls sebum and clears pores to prevent blackheads and acne. It leaves skin soft and promotes skin health.

Soft, airy jelly-touch pads that are steeped in abundant brightening ingredients such as citron extract and glutathione. Adheres perfectly and fills the skin deep with nutrients, giving you smooth, radiant skin.

Heartleaf extract (40,000ppm) harvested from Mountain Jiri in Korea is contained in this toner pad to keep your skin clear and healthy. The lightweight essence in each pad provides deep hydration and soothing care for sensitive skin.

These thin-texture, high-adhesion pads feature a 3-layer structure to lock in highly concentrated serum. It soothes red, sensitive skin in 5 minutes and injects abundant moisture into your skin.

Quick Pre-Makeup Skincare Step 2: Lightweight Serum

Serums are your key to enhancing your skin’s hydration level – but be wary of products with thick, rich textures if you want to avoid pilling. Instead, be on the lookout for refreshing formulae which your skin can effortlessly absorb.

This serum boasts a skin-friendly botanical cocktail of heartleaf extract, water mint extract and other plant-based ingredients to instantly relieve irritation and discomfort. Its soft moist texture penetrates quickly and fills each skin layer with hydration.

Quick Pre-Makeup Skincare Step 3: Moisture-Locking Emulsion

Don’t forget to wrap up your skincare routine and lock moisture in with a lightweight moisturizer, like a gel or emulsion.
Again, steer clear of rich creams and be sure to spread the moisturizer out in thin layers, especially if your skin is prone to oiliness – moisturizer that isn’t fully absorbed can lead to excessive sebum on your face, which will affect the durability of your makeup.
