Without sounding too much like a broken record here, your skincare is your foundation for amazing looking makeup. Specifically, moisturizer! Let’s dive into my top 3 favorite moisturizers I use on my Brides.
First up is MAC’s Studio Moisture Cream. This moisturizer is rich without feeling heavy, and keeps the skin hydrated without making it look like a glazed donut. Although I love that look, I know that it’s not for everyone! This is the moisturizer I will reach for when a client has dry-normal skin, it wears beautifully under makeup.
Next up is, you guess it… the AquaPorin Hydrating Cream by Circadia. I’ve talked about this one several times so I will keep it short and sweet. This moisturizer gives the skin a BEAUTIFUL glow that shines through the makeup, and keeps the skin hydrated and supple all day long. I would apply this moisturizer on anyone with dry-normal or dehydrated skin.
Now this last product is not technically a moisturizer, however it is definitely worth mentioning in this blog! This item I keep in my kit at all times for all of my oily clients (don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you all). I’m talking about MAC’s Skin Refined Zone. This product is so good yet so underrated, it mattifies the skin and helps control oil and shine. It gives a matte finish and is so great for the T-zone. PLUS it can be applied before and after makeup if needed. If I have an oily client what I like to do is apply a light layer of Studio Moisture Cream that way the skin still gets the hydration it needs, and then apply a little Skin Refined Zone on top wherever it is needed. It’s amazing and works every time!
