Create with a Clean Canvas
Consider your face as being a blank canvas…have you ever seen an artist begin a work of art over a dirty canvas? Then why would you dare apply makeup over an unclean face? I like to think of myself as a work of art, once my makeup is applied I then refer to myself as a “Masterpiece”. In order to have a flawless look, you must first start with a clean face. Be sure to remove any dirt, oil or makeup from your face daily. It is important to have a skin care regimen, nothing too complicated. Simply begin with a mild cleanser that removes dirt, oil and makeup. Rinse with lukewarm water until all residue is gone, then follow with a cool rinse to close open pores. Apply a moisturizer to your face and neck. I like to use a mild scrub once a week, to help rid my face of any dead skin cells. Doing so will allow your face to be smooth and eliminate blackheads and enlarged pores. I also like to wait 15 minutes after washing my face before starting my makeup application to avoid smearing or smudging due to perspiration.
Remember….ALWAYS BE CUTE!
