Have you ever wondered how A-list celebrities and many makeup-lovers maintain that long-lasting, flawless and radiant look throughout the party? You probably think it’s because they have money to bear salon expenses. Well, that’s not always true, and you can also achieve those salon-worthy results without spending a dollar.

Here’s the secret – the key to natural-looking, seamless and glowing makeup is skin preparation. The skin won’t look happy, even after makeup if it’s dry, cracker or oily. Preparing your skin right before applying the actual makeup, results in model makeup look with increased staying power.

Today, we’re lucky enough to hear steps for skin preparation before makeup application, from the most professional makeup artists in Singapore.

Steps for Skin Preparation before Makeup


A thoroughly clean makeup-ready canvas is huge for a long-lasting effect. Make sure you use a face cleanser that suits your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, stay away from products with strong ingredients like Witch Hazel, Glycolic Acid and more. These ingredients may cause redness and irritation on the skin.

Find something kind for your face to yield the expected results. Experts recommend buying a face cleanser with a great pH-balance. Natural pH of skin usually stays between 4.5 and 6. Find a cleanser that matches your skin’s pH number.

For acne-prone skin, look for a little acidic product, as bacteria grows more in alkaline conditions. Rinse your skin thoroughly after cleansing to wash out remaining residue.

Exfoliate Face and Neck

Dead skin cells are the biggest culprits behind clumped up makeup. Exfoliates is the right way to deal with dead skin lying on your skin surface, uncovering the freshest layer underneath.

Get a gentle daily exfoliator scrub that features tiny, circular granules. We mentioned circular because irregular, rough ingredients do more bad than good. And, don’t forget your neck. Rinse well after exfoliation, so your makeup doesn’t thicken when applied.

Apply Serum

You may think it unnecessary and skip it. This is where we make another big major makeup gaffe. It’s important to coat your facial and neck skin with a serum before applying moisturizer. Serum infuses skin with rich vitamins and minerals.

Exfoliation deeply cleanses skin pores. Following it with serum application offers hydrating and anti-aging effects to the skin. This is due to the presence of vitamin C, herbal content and moisture-sealing sodium hyaluronate in the skin serum.

Skin Hydration

Use your skin-friendly moisturizer for day-long hydration. It will plump up your skin, providing a feel-like-touching and even skin, perfect for makeup. Make sure your moisturizer contains SPF, or you can apply sunscreen afterward.

Experts suggest you should press the moisturizer onto your skin instead of rubbing it. It stimulates skin cells, allowing ingredients to seep into the skin deeply.

Create Base with Primer

You may wonder why you should start makeup with primer. However, this is the top secret held by the best professional makeup artists and celebrities in the world. A silicone-based primer fills all unwanted crevices and creates a smooth makeup canvas. It also creates a protective barrier disallowing moisture and skin’s natural oil from mixing with the makeup.

The face is a canvas, and the product won’t sit perfectly unless you perform some ground work. Just by following these five steps, you can easily achieve envy-worthy makeup. No makeup filters needed anymore!
