Every good makeup artist knows that prepping the skin with the right skin care products before makeup application is crucial for smooth makeup application, a healthier looking finish, and longer lasting makeup. And most makeup artists have their favorites when it comes to skin care. From the makeup kit to your medicine cabinet, check out this shortlist of versatile, hardworking makeup artist favorites. They should be on your must-have list too!
Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater
This fabulous facial spray can multi-task as a toner, a quick and refreshing midday pick-me-up, or to set makeup.
Cleansing Milk With Carnation & Rice Oil
Makeup artists love this for its ability to dissolve and wipe away oil-based makeup without stripping the skin. You don’t need to spend 16 hours under hot sound tage lights to reap the benefits of this classic skin softening wipe-off formula.
Herbal Hydrating Serum
Treat your skin to this one-of-a-kind serum that is to be applied after a moisturizer and before makeup. This is particularly necessary for those who have dehydrated skin—the Herbal Hydrating Serum is like a drink of water to the skin. It will also aid in smoother makeup application and encourage a more radiant complexion.
The Moisture Magnet SPF 15
A popular moisturizer among makeup artists, The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 will prevent dry, flaky, or dehydrated skin and ensure makeup is applied more effortlessly.
Hyaluronic Eye Cream
The eye area is delicate as it is, but some clients require a little more TLC on their eye area than others. For those who tend to get dry, flaky skin around the eye area, it is highly recommended to use an eye cream on the orbital bone (the area of the face that lies between the under-eye area and the highest part of the cheekbone). This will ensure that concealer is applied more smoothly and the eye area will look more youthful.
Summer Shine Body Lotion
No look is complete until a little TLC is given to the skin below the neck. Summer Shine Body Lotion softens and hydrates dry skin and imparts a subtle shimmer that will highlight shins, shoulders, and your collarbone. Use all over or just where you need a little glow.
