In the immortal words of RuPaul, "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?" The same goes for your beauty routine. It's so much easier to look glamorous when you actually feel good about yourself, and that starts with taking care of your skin. Here are some simple tips for achieving a healthy glow all day long.
Moisturizing your skin before applying makeup is an easy way to help make your makeup last longer. When you apply moisturizer, it creates a smooth surface for foundation and other products to sit on top of, which helps them stay in place all day long. It also helps protect the skin from sun damage by creating a barrier that shields out harmful UV rays.
Moisture is key when it comes to healthy-looking skin and this includes both hydration (water) and oil balance (fatty acids). So use an emollient-rich moisturizer with hyaluronic acid or ceramides if you have dry skin; oily types should look for oil-free formulas with lighter textures like gel creams or liquid lotions instead.
Prime Your Skin
Primer is a skincare product that you put on your skin before applying foundation. It helps the makeup stay in place and last all day, so you don't have to worry about reapplying it every few hours. Primers come in different formulas: some are light and moisturizing; others are oily or creamy; still others are designed specifically for oily or dry skin types.
Priming your face is easy! Just apply a small amount of primer to your fingertips, then gently pat it onto your cheeks, forehead and chin (don't forget those areas that tend to get shiny throughout the day). Make sure not to rub too hard, you don't want any lines showing up in photos later on!
What's so great about using a primer? For one thing: it makes application easier because it creates an even surface for foundation application; plus there's less chance of getting streaks across our faces since we're working with less-dense materials than normal makeup brushes provide us with at home without any help from professionals beforehand either, just keep reading below if interested further details regarding this topic area.
Set Your Makeup With A Powder
Set your makeup with a powder.
Powders are the best way to set your foundation, because they help keep everything in place and prevent oil from breaking down your makeup. A good powder should be light-reflective (so you have a smooth, even complexion) and oil-free (to avoid adding more shine). It should also be fragrance-free (although this is less important if you're using it as an eyeshadow primer) and talc-free--talc can clog pores and cause breakouts!
Don't Touch Your Face Throughout The Day
- Don't touch your face throughout the day.
- Don't twirl your hair with a dirty hand.
- Don't use a dirty hand to clean up your makeup.
- Don't rub your eyes, even if they're itchy or tired from staring at the computer screen all day (or watching TV, or reading a book). It'll only make them worse!
Use An Oil-Based Cleanser To Remove Waterproof Makeup At Night
- Apply the cleanser directly to your skin with a cotton pad and massage in circular motions, being careful not to rub too hard or pull at the skin.
- Rinse with warm water, followed by a gentle cleanser if desired (we recommend Our Luxurybysofia Cleanser).
You can also use this technique while showering!
Your Beauty Routine Can Be Clean, Easy And Effective

Organic makeup is good for your skin because it contains ingredients that are better for you than synthetic ones. Healthy makeup means that you won't have to worry about what's being absorbed into your pores or bloodstream while wearing it, which will keep them looking younger longer.
