Makeup Guideline 1 - Apply Moisturizer

Rather than complicating the skin with a ton of caked on makeup that doesn’t quite accentuate your natural glow. The best way to achieve this you want to apply moisturizer with sunscreen that works for your skin type.  Whether you have perfect, oil free, or dry skin, moisturizing your face before applying makeup is an important step you should never skip.  Not only does adding moisturizer to your makeup routine give your face the essential oils and vitamins that were stripped away when you washed your face, but it also helps makeup applications stay longer and look smoother than if you had skipped this step.
