If you would’ve asked me that question two years ago I would’ve been team primer all the way! However I know now that the best way to prime your skin before makeup is to prep it correctly. Trust me when I say that taking the time to show your skin some extra love will transform your makeup game! Here are some of my favorite products I use to prep myself and my clients:
1.Sexapeel by Sonia Roselli Beauty. This stuff is magical! It is an instant spray exfoliant that is oh-so satisfying to use. All you do is spray an even layer over the desired area, lightly massage in circular motions, and voila! You will see the dead skin literally roll off. You’ll be left with softer, smoother skin which will result in a gorgeous makeup application and longer wear.
2. AquaPorin Hydrating Cream by Circadia. This cream hydrates your skin from the inside out by improving your Aquaporin channels, so you stay hydrated for longer. Did I mention it makes your skin feel like an absolute dream? Massage one pump of this bad boy all over your face and thank me later. Your makeup will melt into your skin and will give a more natural, skin-like finish. This product is also a client favorite, I can never keep it on my shelves for long! ***pre-order only
3. All About Eyes eye cream by Clinique. I will never do makeup without an eye cream ever again! It helps keep the delicate skin around the eyes nice and supple to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and to prevent creasing as much as possible.
*Bonus for Brides, I LOVE to apply the Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige before I start the makeup, that way the lips are hydrated and ready for lipstick when the time comes.
