Beauty basics: how to get makeup ready!

Hey everyone, I'm back with my new series beauty basics! This is based on anything beauty or makeup related. If you have any requests please feel free to leave it in the comments below.

Achieving the perfect base is the first step in your makeup routine, to help your makeup last longer and create a smooth, even base. Keep reading to learn how.

1. A clean face:
After you have cleansed your skin, leave your face a little damp (but not soaking!) this will help your moisturiser to work better.

2. Moisturise:
The creaminess of your moisturiser can cause your makeup to thin out if it hasn't had enough time to soak into your skin, seriously this a step you should consider! If you don't it can make your foundation blotchy and can affect its staying power throughout the day. Wait 60 seconds until your moisturiser is absorbed or if your in a rush use a tissue to blot your face after moisturising. 

3. Prime:
Me, probably you and other makeup artists swear by this step! Face primers do lots of different things: fill in creases, smooth out the skins surface, even out skin tone, help your makeup stick and last longer, helps to disguise blemishes by helping your makeup blend more evenly and reduce shine. Maybe this will teach you to use a primer more often or at least everyday/when you do your makeup. To apply a primer just use your fingers to apply all over your face (don't forget to bring it down your neck) like you would with your moisturiser.

Now your makeup ready! Hope this was helpful and you enjoyed this blog post of my new series beauty basics, I will have more up soon! Again PLEASE leave requests below in the comments!! Don't be lazy or afraid to leave a comment :) xo
