I am skin care obsessed.
If you want your makeup to look gorgeous you have to first focus on the skin underneath, making sure it is hydrated and glowing. When I am working, regardless of whether I’m doing a magazine shoot or prepping a celebrity for an on-camera appearance (or anything in between), the first step is to prep the skin. On most skins I will use a serum containing hyaluronic acid to super-boost the complexion’s hydration equation. When the complexion is beautifully hydrated foundation glides on easily and stays looking gorgeous much longer.
On myself I like to use a serum containing hyaluronic acid both morning and night to both plump up my skin and keep it hydrated.
ThankYourSkin.com has this fabulous info-graphic which explains hyaluronic acid beautifully. If you haven’t been to their website before, it is a fabulous resource for skin care info.
At the bottom of this post I have a group of serums containing hyaluronic acid that you can find at Sephora.
