Most things in life require careful planning and preparation, whether it's for work, school or going out, so your face also needs proper care to keep your makeup looking perfect and lasting as long as possible. Applying layers and layers of makeup on an unprepared face leads to an uneven complexion, greasy or dry product build-up, and an overall worse appearance of the makeup, as well as the skin. Before applying makeup, use these simple tricks to get the best results!
1) THE BASE OF EVERYTHING - CLEANSED FACE
The first step in your routine should be using a facial cleanser that removes excess oil and impurities from the skin's surface. Be sure to use a cleanser that suits your skin type and needs, and we recommend avoiding drying cleansers, as hydrated skin is key when applying makeup.
2) APPLY FACE TONER
After cleansing your face, spray your face with toner. The tonic will help to additionally hydrate and refresh your skin and thus create a perfect base for make up. It is important to use a moisturizing or soothing tonic, and by no means more aggressive tonics that additionally clean but also dry out the face, so that you don't get the opposite effect. L'ADRIA Restorative mist is the perfect choice - it hydrates and protects your skin, and you can also use it as a make-up base, but also to reduce the powdery effect of powder!
3) USE AN EYE CREAM
Creams formulated specifically for the eye area help to "wake up" tired eyes and refresh the area around the eyes, but at the same time they also nourish and prepare it for the application of concealer, powder and other products. Before applying make-up, use an eye cream with a richer composition, which will maximally smooth the skin and prevent the dry effect of the base or the accumulation of product in the folds of the skin. It is right now L'ADRIA Eye Cream simply ideal for that purpose!
4) ADDITIONAL CARE AND MOISTURIZATION OF THE FACE
The secret of a good makeup base is optimal hydration of the skin. Apply a nourishing cream and, if necessary, a serum that suits your skin type for better makeup application and a more natural look. It is a fantastic base for make-up L'ADRIA Instant Revitalizing Serum , which deeply hydrates the skin and gives it a youthful, lively look. With a good moisturizing base, you can avoid using a primer, unless you really want a matte skin look.
5) SKIN EXFOLIATION FOR AN ADDITIONAL EFFECT
Skin exfoliation contributes to longer-lasting makeup, more thorough removal of dry parts of the facial skin, but also to better penetration and effect of cosmetic products. An exfoliated face is extremely smooth, making it the perfect base for applying products, but we still recommend exfoliating the night before makeup to give your skin enough time to recover until the next morning.
