Prepping Your Skin for Makeup

All the primer in the world can’t create flawless skin. For that seamless makeup look, try one or all of these tips to get your complexion ready!

Power Wash

Sloughing off those dead skin cells is the quickest way to boost radiance. To do so without irritation, use an oscillating brush, like Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Cleansing System, with a mild scrub twice a week. And once a week, apply a clay mask, like Revision Black Mask, to absorb impurities.


At-home peels can help you achieve a silkier finish. Use a peel, like Neostrata Skin Active Perfecting Peel, one a week at night–it’s an at home treatment with glycolic acid to smooth the skin’s texture and even out tone.


Dry and chalky does not make for a great nude look. What you’re after is “lush” skin, and to get it you have to seal in moisture. After cleansing, use a generous layer of hyaluronic acid, found in products like SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, to attract water molecules to the skin. Follow with a drop of facial treatment oil, like Trilogy Rosehip Oil.
