To achieve makeup which looks like those of the models or your favorite celebrity, your skin must be clear and smooth enough to provide the base for such a makeup. If you want to prepare your skin for a glowing and charming makeup follow these simple ideas.

Clean your skin with a cleanser:

The first step to make your skin perfect for applying makeup is to cleanse it using a good cleanser. Choose cleansers that have no harmful chemicals that can damage your skin. If you have sensitive skin then do not try acidic cleansers or those with alcohol in them. Never use those cleansers that cause redness on the face. This will take more time to clear your skin.

Neat and clear skin gives best glowing makeup results. Dirty skin never absorbs the makeup correctly and it does not show the beauty of your face.

Exfoliation of the skin daily:

The daily removing of the dead cells from your skin proves beneficial when you apply makeup. In most of the cases when you apply makeup on dead cells your skin never looks smooth and elegant and your makeup looks old as if it is from yesterday. It is better to exfoliate your skin using good scrubs that do not harm your skin.

Use serum prior to exfoliate:

Using serum before you remove the dead cells from the skin is the best way to keep your skin hydrated and fresh. Vitamins and minerals present in serums are beneficial for the skin and they give best results when you apply them before the makeup.

 Hydration is necessary:

The proper hydration of the skin is necessary to maintain the shine and glow of your skin, makeup looks bad on dry skin. Always hydrate using good moisturizers. Try to apply them by just pressing them to your face. There is no need to rub the moisturizers on your skin. Makeup is easier to apply on hydrated and moisturized skin.

Use primer:

After performing all the steps mentioned above, if your skin still has some unbalanced parts like widened pores or darker spots then use primers. This will smooth your skin and prepare it for applying makeup.
