We will let you in on a secret: the key to good makeup is having good skin. So, let’s start at the source – what New Year’s Resolutions should you be making when it comes to your skincare?
Let us divulge our top skincare tips for the start of 2019…
In order to know what skincare routine to have in the first place, you need to know what skin type you have! If your skin feels tight after cleansing or your make-up sticks to scalier patches on your skin, you’re more likely to have a dry skin type. However, if your foundation tends to get shiny around the T-zone midway through the day, you may have an oilier skin type.
Look for products that tackle issues for your skin type – moisturising and brightening cleansers for dry skin, and oil-controlling products for oilier skin.
Double cleansing is a must for any make-up wearer! Opt for a balm or oil to help break down make-up and debris, and then follow with your normal cleansing routine for clearer skin.
If you have an oilier skin type, this may seem counter productive but using an oil to moisturise can be a big help. It will allow your skin to retain moisture overnight, resulting in plump and fresh-looking skin in the morning.
There’s nothing more important than making sure you slap on the sunscreen, even in the middle of winter. Wearing products with high SPF factors can help prevent signs of ageing and protect against UV rays.
Now that you’ve got your skincare down, it’s time for the make-up; and what better way to save time than to get it done semi permanently? Sian Dellar offers the very best in semi-permanent make-up treatments, ranging from Microblading, to Lip Blush Tattooing and even Eyeliner Tattooing.
Each treatment involves placing the pigment into the dermal layer of the skin for the most natural, realistic results that last up to a year.
