Skincare that Makes Your Makeup Look Better


When it comes to achieving a flawless makeup look, the secret doesn’t lie solely in the makeup products you use but in the foundation you build with your skincare routine. A well-prepped canvas is essential for smooth, long-lasting, and radiant makeup. Here’s how a dedicated skincare regimen can elevate your makeup game.


The importance of skincare in makeup application

Before diving into the steps, it’s crucial to understand why skincare is the unsung hero of flawless makeup:


  1. Smooth Texture: Proper skincare minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines, creating a smooth base for makeup application.

  2. Hydration: Well-hydrated skin prevents makeup from caking or settling into dry patches.

  3. Longevity: Healthy skin helps makeup stay in place longer, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups.

  4. Radiance: A glowing complexion enhances the overall look of your makeup, giving it a natural and vibrant finish.

1. Cleanse Thoroughly

Start with a cleanser that suits your skin type. Cleansing removes dirt, oil, and impurities, ensuring that your skin is clean and ready to absorb the next steps of your skincare routine. For oily skin, opt for Black Mint Clarifying Cleanser. If you have dry skin, Montana Harvest Omega Oil Cleanser is ideal.

2. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliation is key to removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover. This step smooths your skin’s texture and helps prevent clogged pores. Exfoliate 1-2 times a week with Bioactive Rose Gommage Resurfacing Enzyme Mask to resurface the skin and tighten pores.

3. Mist Your Skin

A hydrating treatment mist preps the skin for better absorption of your serums and moisturizers and can be used multiple times before, during, and after makeup application.

4. Hydrate with a Serum

For a flawless makeup base, use a hydrating serum like our Derm-Restore Super Serum containing Hyaluronic Acid or Glycerin. These ingredients draw moisture into the skin, plumping it and creating a smooth surface for makeup application.

5. Apply an Eye Cream

Use an eye cream to hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes and reduce puffiness. This prevents concealer from creasing and helps it blend more smoothly. For example, the Edelweiss Extrême® Intense Repair Eye Cream is is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles.*

6. Moisturize Adequately

Moisturizer locks in hydration and creates a barrier that smooths the skin’s surface. Opt for a lightweight, non-greasy formula like Green Smoothie® Ultra-Quenching Crème that provides sufficient moisture without feeling heavy.

7. Lip Care

If you’re a lover of lipstick, lip gloss, and everything in between, exfoliate your lips with something like our Jojoba Pearls Daily Hydra-Exfoliant and follow with a hydrating balm like le Blue Balm Repair Balm. This keeps your lips smooth and ready for lipstick.

8. Apply Sunscreen Daily

Even better if you apply a sunscreen that doubles as a natural complexion corrector! For example, the Tinted SPF 50 Mineral Drops delivers maximum anti-aging PA++++ protection in addition to providing a luminous glowy no-makeup makeup base.


PRO TIP: Just mix 2-3 drops of Gt+L Radiance Serum Concentrate into your foundation, or pat into skin before applying Tinted SPF 50 Mineral Drops for a lit-from-within glowy finish.
