It’s really important to wait for moisturizer to fully sink in before applying your makeup. This helps create the right canvas for putting on foundation (or primer, whatever’s your next step), and helps it to stay fresh longer. Usually, when I’m running late and can’t wait the minute for it to sink in, I stand in front of my bedroom fan for a few seconds.
Makeup artists are usually experts in skin care, for obvious reasons. Many of them are pretty big fans of our Moisture Magnet SPF 15 to help hydrate skin and create a solid base for makeup application. It’s fairly lightweight and includes broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection (because,of course). It’s one of our favorite anti-aging daytime moisturizers. (If you have oily skin, this moisturizer is the perfect moisturizer for you.)
