Experimenting with makeup is fun until the base starts looking patchy and colours don’t go on smoothly! If you continue to be frustrated by this, we’ll let you in on the secret to smooth makeup: Prep your skin correctly.
First, we recommend you cleanse your face or scrub if you haven’t (twice a week) before starting your makeup to make sure your skin is rid of surface oil and dead skin which causes your makeup to float and flake. Once done, continue with our recommended MVP products from the clean fam.

Step One: Serum
The first secret is to keep your skin clear from pigmentation and dark spots from daily sun exposure. Skinlycious Clarifying Serum is number one on our list because it combines Vitamin C and B3 to quickly reduce spots in just one or two applications. It effectively lightens pigmentation for a visibly clearer and brighter complexion.
Step Two: Sunscreen
Our next secret to nail that base is of course: SPF. Sun protection is probably the most important product for your skin at all times and our favourite is the Multi Protection Mineral Sunscreen by Skinlycious. It has a non-sticky formula, protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and leaves no white cast. It’s everything we could ever want in sunscreen!
Step Three: Hydrating Mist
And our final secret is to use this deeply hydrating facial mist, Hydrate by Oasis. Not only is it the perfect priming base before makeup, it is filled with hyaluronic acid (HA), Niacinamide and a cocktail of botanical nutrients. You can use it throughout the day to hydrate your skin and for a long lasting makeup!
Now that your face is prepped, it’s ready for the glam! Your makeup will perform better than it ever did, trust us.
