Re-posting because this is super important!!
Its almost summer and this is a serious topic ladies and gentlemen, Sunscreen. Scientific evidence supports the benefits of using sunscreen to minimize short-term and long-term damage to the skin from the sun’s rays. Here is a quick list of sunscreen you can buy


Anthelios XL Ultra-light SPF 50+

I use this one, I find it isn’t to oily or greasy. I find that I can easy add it to my beauty routine.  It’s extremely lightweight has fast absorbing formula. It doesn’t leave the white residue some sunscreens do and I can apply it under my makeup.

Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50

Great light weight moisturizer adsorbs really quickly into the skin. Perfect for everyday wear as its not a heavy or oily on the skin however, it is the most expensive out of all my recommendations.dermalogica-age-smart-dynamic-skin-recovery-50ml

Time to Prime

The first step to achieving a flawless, long wearing foundation base is Primer! There is a reason why its a crime not to prime. However slapping on some primer that you brought from the store isn’t enough. If it helps, think of your face as a canvas, the cleaner the canvas, the easier it is for the makeup to slide effortlessly onto your face and the less likely for it to become oily and transfer off!


EXFOLIATION 

The first step is exfoliation and it is a vital step as it allows for the shedding of dead skin cells; this provides an opportunity for the new layer of fresh, plump skin to be revealed. This allows for a fresh clean base for foundation to sit on.


PRIME 

The next step is to prime the skin. Primers are essential for creating an even application of foundation as well as aiding in longevity. Primers are often reactive to heat and therefore application with your fingertips works best, gently massaging the product into your skin. Whilst primer is an essential part of creating a flawless face, one primer does not fit all, which is why it is important that primer is chosen based on the your skin type. If you’re in doubt ask for a sample, many makeup stores like Mecca and Sephora will give you a sample to try.


After this step you are ready to paint your canvas!


Tips on choosing the right primer.

OILY SKIN

If your skin tends to be more on the oily side should look for matte or oil free primers.

NORMAL TO OILY SKIN

If your skin that is generally “normal” but may experience slight oiliness through the Nose or forehead you are fairly lucky and you are able to try pretty much any product however something oil free will help with your oily T-zone.

DRY SKIN

If your skin extremely dry, you need to apply a product that will protect and hydrate the skin. For dry skin it’s best if you try and sample different primer as you need to work out what works best for you.
