A guide to your basic skincare and make-up routine

Post on June 24, 2016 | SOGO
Skincare and make-up routines are a bit tricky at times. It can vary from extremely minimal to super complicated. Confusion can certainly arise when one has to deal with product information such as serums, acne treatments/cream, moisturizers…the list goes on! There’s also the matter of using suitable brushes or proper techniques for make-up application as well. This will surely drive any women bonkers!

But keep calm because here are a few pointers that you can keep in mind when you’re looking for or perfecting your ideal skincare and make-up routine.

SKINCARE



Get to know your skin
The best way to get started on a basic skincare routine is to know your skin type. While your skin can be affected by different factors like weather and climate, the products that are available will usually veer towards normal, dry, oily and combination skin. So find out your skin type so finding products fitting for your skin type will be easier!

Know the products
Now that you’ve got your skin type figured out, the next step will be finding what products work best for you. Reading the label would be best so that you won’t end up purchasing products that contain drying ingredients such as isopropyl alcohol. Once you’re interested on a certain product, you can even get samples to try out whether it fits to your skin.

Perfect your daily routine
Here’s an example of a step-by-step routine that you can try out:
1. Cleanser
2. Toner
3. Moisturizer

Extra Pampering:
- Exfoliate
- Eye Creams
- Mask
- Serums

Do it daily!
Of course, the best way to keep your skin glowing and fresh is to keep your skincare routine going on a daily basis. Regular exfoliation is a must not something that you should on a daily basis as it will interfere with your skin’s ability to protect you!

Once you get used to a regular skincare routine, you can always opt for a more advanced skincare routine too!

MAKE-UP
A woman either has too little make-up or too much make-up. But the latter always happens in most cases. But you need to know what’s worth keeping and what products you should be using. Luckily for you, we’ve got the ways for you to de-clutter your make-up dresser .




Here’s guide to a daily make-up routine so that you can put your best face forward:

Foundation
This is a must to have so that you have an even-toned skin. To take it up a notch, invest in a liquid foundation brush. You can’t believe the difference it will make!

Concealer
Conceal all those imperfections! A little swipe under your eyes and dabs on those scars will have you look good as new!

Powder
Complete your look with this a powder of your desired skin tone. Using a kabuki brush will definitely get you that finished look without any crease.

Bronzer
This might seem a bit too advanced but it certainly needs to be added to your make-up routine. Using a fluffy brush, swirl the brush in the product, tap away the excess and sweep the brush up and down starting at the outer part of your cheek, working your way in. Repeat on the other side. Then finish with your forehead, chin, and neck.

Blush
Bring a bit of blush to those cheeks! Simply smile and apply across your cheeks

Eyes
Take your pick of either eyeshadow or eyeliner. But if you have more time, opt for both. Play it up either for a sweet look or a dramatic look as well! Apply on some mascara as well to elongate those lashes.

Lips
Last but not least, the lips! Go crazy and go for bold colours or keep it simple with nude / light shades of lipsticks.
