Flawless skin is the ‘bread and butter’ of any beauty regime. For many women, if their skin complexion isn’t looking completely flawless, then any make-up applied will not look radiant when they receive a beauty makeover.
The skincare basics
Achieving glowing skin doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be achieved fairly easily with the right cleansing and toning techniques, combined with a healthy diet and plenty of fluids. Before any beauty makeover at a photo shoot, or even for a special occasion, a make-up artist has to work with flawless skin. If the model does not have glowing skin, it creates extra work for the make-up artist who has to try to use make-up to conceal any imperfections in the skin’s complexion. Therefore, to always look glowing and radiant, it pays to eat healthily - a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, pulses and cereals is best. Follow this by drinking eight glasses of water or more a day and stick to a cleansing and toning routine using a good facial cleanser, toner and moisturiser, preferably with SPF. Once the basics of a good skincare regime are achieved, it becomes easier to get flawless skin. Some simple tips for maintaining a flawless complexion include wearing SPF 15+ sunscreen every day, washing the face daily and washing make-up off properly before going to sleep. Exercise also helps in eliminating toxins from your body, which will in time help to give you flawless skin.
Beauty make-up tricks
A beauty makeover will help to give the impression of a clear and flawless complexion if the correct make-up is used, for example to highlight particular features and to hide any blemishes or spots on the skin. To achieve glowing skin, work with clean make-up brushes and make-up which does not suffocate the skin of oxygen. Mineral make-up for example helps the skin to ‘breathe’ as it contains only natural minerals found in the earth, free from chemicals and preservatives which are often found in traditional make-up. Applying this form of make-up across the face and neck is a quick way of achieve glowing skin, whilst a touch of concealer in a shade close to your skin tone will hide any dark circles. Blusher or bronzer, applied appropriately and in the right shade for your skin tone can highlight certain areas of the face like the cheekbones or eyebrows.
Perfecting the look
