Hey Beauties! Today I’m going to talk about how to best prepare your skin for better wearing Foundation. Whatever makeup brand you wear, these tips still apply. Good makeup starts with great skincare. You cannot have a flawless glow without doing these steps First. Here are a few things you can do to get Glowing!
1. Exfoliate Your Skin
Here’s the thing. Your skin cells are constantly turning over and if you don’t smooth off the dead layer on top, your makeup will literally sit on top of it. Insert yucky face. To create a smooth even surface you’ll need a good exfoliator. You don’t need to use it daily, but I recommend using it at least every couple of days. There are more gentle versions or ones that have a little bit more natural abrasives in it. *Note- Please do not use Apricot Scrub… you’ll go to skincare jail. K?
Acure Brilliantly Brightening Facial Scrub
With sea kelp & French green clay, for all skin types.
“Sea kelp super-nutrients soften and detoxify, while lemon peel and French green clay cleanse without stripping away natural moisture. Madonna lily brings the brightness to round out this refreshing facial scrub.”
This scrub is a bit more on the abrasive side so I would use it 2 times a week. It makes your skin feel so fresh!

2. Clean your Brushes
Listen… I know that sounds crazy. But if your brushes are gross and have product build up on them, your makeup is not going to go on smooth. I like to deep clean my Maskcara brushes with a Natural Dish soap every month and weekly with the Amazing Restore Brush Cleaner. The Restore spray is a disinfecting spray that you spritz on your brushes and wipe away the makeup onto a damp paper towel (or towel) and wipe away until clean. The spray is great because it’s much faster than using water. It helps keep away bacteria too and a makeup lover’s must have product!
Buy the Maskcara Restore Brush Cleaner Here! It smells SO good and last a long time too since its a big bottle!
3. Moisturize every. day.
If you want your foundation to be smooth and even, your skin must be moisturized. I cannot tell you how much the MILK Moisturizer has helped the texture and smoothness of my skin. Not to mention my red patches that came after I had my twins. This magical creme is great to use nightly and helps balance and tone since it has exfoliating properties. I have clients that are so in love with how much it has helped their skin!
I love that it has a sanitary pump so you only pump to the top what you need. No dipping with your hand keeps away bacteria and helps it last for 2-3 months. You can find additional information on the Tres Leches Line Here.
Here’s some examples of how the Tres Leches Skincare line has helped below! The trio system includes a cleanser, toner, and the MILK Moisturizer. You can watch the video on how to use it on this post!
It’s amazing for redness and keeping breakouts away! I finally feel confident with my skin when I’m makeup free. That says a lot. So much of great makeup starts with healthy skin!
I hope these tips up your makeup game! I know they have helped my skin so much!
