PREP AND PRIME
First Buacharern started with “a clean and moisturized face.” Skin can get a little dry in winter, so personally, I like to use Hey Honey Come Clean Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub ($28.00, Ulta.com). This exfoliating scrub cleans deep within the pores and the propolis extract and dissolving minerals will leave your skin clear, smooth, and bright. Even though it’s an exfoliant, it’s not super harsh, making it great for sensitive skin. If you don’t want to use a facial cleanser with an exfoliant, you can never go wrong with affordable go to Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser ($6.49, Target.com). You can’t go wrong with this affordable cleanser as it’s 50% moisturizer! Your winter skin is thanking you in advance.
After you wash your face and do your skincare routine, it’s time to apply a primer. Primer is undoubtedly one of the most important steps in a makeup routine. It helps your makeup lay smoothly, and if you use VDL Lumilayer Primer ($26.00, Beautylish.com) it will also capture and reflect light giving you a natural glow.
