Here’s another tip for Tip Tuesday:

Today’s tip is about A Makeup Mistake When Applying Foundation:

When applied correctly, makeup can give you an instant confidence boost, but when not done right it can also be a quick way to make you feel like wearing it was a big mistake!

Being the base, the foundation of your makeup, it is very important to get it right. The formula and color of foundation you choose can make all the difference.  But there are some important things that need to happen before the foundation is even applied.

Foundation Tip 1: Properly prepare your skin

Whether your skin is normal, oily, dry, acne prone or a combo of all of them, you must properly prepare your skin before you put any makeup on.

First, wash and tone your face:

My favorite toner is Mario Badescu Facial Spray
As well as the Trader Joes Rose Water Facial Toner

Second, apply serums and facial oils

One serum that I have recently added to my skincare routine is rosehip oil. This one from Skincare is a great oil that doesn’t cost a lot. A 4 oz bottle costs around $15.  I purchased mine on Amazon, but you can also order it directly from the Radha website.

Some of my favorite serums are from Asterwood NaturalsAsterwood Naturals |

I have noticed that using this hyaluronic moisture boost serum from Trader Joes has made a big difference in the look and feel of my skin. This is my fourth bottle and I am about to need to get another one.

Thirdly, whether your skin is dry or super oily, you have got to moisturize!

My current favorite day cream is the Pacifica Beauty Coconut Probiotic Water Rehab Cream. I’ve been using it for about 6 months now. As soon as I finish one tube I get another one! That says a lot considering how many other day creams I already have. It is good for all skin types, it’s #vegan as well as #crueltyfree.

Lastly, don’t forget to exfoliate!  Your skin will be healthier and look smoother. You can read all about why exfoliating is important in a previous Tip Tuesday by clicking HERE.

My all-time favorite exfoliator is the Dr. Brandt Skincare PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator.  A 2 oz tube of this exfoliator is $58 at Sephora as well as on the Dr. Brandt’s website, in my opinion, it is worth every penny.

Follow these few steps and you will have a beautiful face to put your foundation on.  Eventually, you might even find that you hardly need to use any foundation at all anymore.
