I'm surprised I haven't blogged about skincare before! My skin has always been super sensitive and I'm going through a skin journey at the moment, but its really made me more careful of what skincare products I use on my clients.
SKINCARE! so in a nutshell- if you want your make up to sit well on your skin, last for longer and have a more of a flawless look, you need to make sure your pre-make up regime is on point.
All my clients have different skin types so the type of skincare products I use on them is so fundamental to how the make up is going to sit and how long it will stay for. So remember to LISTEN to your clients when they talk about their skin!
Below are the staple products I use on most of my clients:
1) Origins Make a Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Serum
I love the 'Make a Difference' range from Origins as I feel like it caters to all skin types. This serum especially helps dehydrated/dry skin so I tend to use this on clients with that skin type (but it also works perfectly for normal skin!). I may skip this step if the person is more oily/combination. I love how it isn't too thick or creamy but it does exactly what I need it to do. It really helps protect the skin's natural moisture barrier making the make up appear smoother on the face. I leave this serum on the skin for a minute or so to let the skin absorb it before applying the next product.
2) Origins Make a Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Moisturiser
I actually use this face cream (but the one for oily skin) on myself hence I decided to put it in my kit! This stuff smells amazing and it has ingredients such as rose of jericho, lychee and watermelon to help calm the skin as well as keeping the skin nice and hydrated.
3) Smashbox Oil-free Pore Minimising Primer
LOVE all Smashbox primers!! I don't ever use anything else! Never ever apply foundation without this stuff, you will see a huge difference of how your skin looks and feels. If you haven't already, check out my previous blog post on 'The Power of Primers' and why I have used an orange to demonstrate why they are fundamental to make up application. http://www.reyamore.com/beauty-blog/the-power-of-primer
4) Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream
I always apply this cream after the eye make up has been applied and I leave it to absorb whilst I do the foundation. The reason why I love this eye cream is because it absorbs super fast which is handy when I have group bookings and every minute counts!, it has an inbuilt primer which is obviously amazing for smoothing out any lines underneath the eyes so the concealer sits so much better without any creases, the creamy texture means the area is deeply hydrated for the whole day.

5) M.A.C. Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray
I could talk all day about this product! Its so multi-functional I can't imagine applying make up without it. This spray finishes the make up and keeps it in tact the whole day, helps any 'chalky/dry' looking make up look glowy and healthy looking, skin feels refreshed and hydrated and the smell is just divine! I also use this to make eyeshadow more pigmented by just spraying the brush beforehand.
