Chris is a good friend of my co-makeup artist Faye Young. She was supposed to do Chris’ wedding makeup but she was already booked by another bride-to-be on the same date, so she recommended me instead. Thanks Ms. Faye for the generosity! 🙂
What I instantly noticed about Chris is her skin, it’s obvious that she’s taking good care of it so I didn’t have to do much prepping before putting on makeup. I can’t stress this enough, but good skincare is really a must if you want good makeup work. Some people expect that makeup could magically make their skin luminous and glowing, but really, you have to develop a skincare routine first and follow it religiously before putting makeup.
So what’s a typical skin care routine? You have to:
2. Tone (preferably water based)
3. Moisturize (even if you have oily skin!)
4. Exfoliate (once or twice a week only)
5. Sunblock (during the day only; at least SPF 20 with UVA and UVB protection)
Of course the products that you’ll use will depend on your skin type, so you have to know your skin type first. For some it will take a while before you find the products that are hiyang for you, so be patient!
