Back to basics

Perfect little gift sets $25 and under that won't leave your wallet heartbroken! Valid 11/19-12/25.

How do we prepare a face for makeup, for that special date or dinner party or just going to work. Believe it or not if our faces are not prepped correctly our makeup may not look as it should.

Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure that you get the best look out of your make up:

First we must determine our Skin type. This will ensure that we use the correct product to cleanse ,tone and moisturize our skin. There are four different skin types. Dry, Oily, Normal and Sensitive.  These are ways to identify our skin type.

Normal Skin Type
Normal skin is not too dry and not too oily. It has: No or few imperfections, No severe sensitivity, barely visible pores, a radiant complexion.

Beauty Encounter

Combination Skin Type
A combination skin type can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have combination skin, which  may benefit from slightly different types of skin care in different areas. Combination skin can produce: Overly dilated pores, Blackheads, Shiny skin.

Dry Skin Type
Dry skin can produce: Almost invisible pores, Dull, rough complexion, Red patches, Less elasticity, More visible lines.

Oily Skin Type
Oily skin can produce:
Enlarged pores, Dull or shiny, thick complexion, Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes. A trick is to put a thin layer of Milk of Magnesia on your T-Zone and rub it in ensuring it does not leave your skin looking white.

Sensitive Skin Type
If your skin is sensitive, try to find out what your triggers are so you can avoid them. You may have sensitive skin for a variety of reasons, but often it's in response to particular skin care products. Sensitive skin can show up as: Redness, Itching, Burning, Dryness.

Make up by Farron Julien Peters

After knowing your skin type you can use the appropriate cleansers, toners, moisturizers for your skin.  You are now on your way. Use a face primer to ensure that your makeup goes on smooth and last longer. You are ready for your foundation which should match your skin perfectly. In order to ensure that it does put a little on the neck area and smooth it in, making sure that it goes into the skin and is not ashy, lighter or darker than your skin tone. Use a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation and apply under eyes to lighten darkness and brighten eyes and down the centre of the nose. Apply powder, a translucent or a matching skin color. Your face is now ready to get your blush, eye shadows of your choice and a lip gloss or lipstick that will have people talking.  As my slogan says Look Good. Feel Good.
