New CID – Learn How To Prep Your Skin

International Make Up Artist from New CID cosmetics, Mikey Philips, talks us through how he preps skin before make it. Ensuring that your make up application gives you the results you want every day.

‘Preparation is the key to how good your makeup will look.

Exfoliate the skin regularly as this will remove any dry dead skin and help clear any blocked pores.  Your cleanser and skin care routine will then  work more effectively.

Cleanse thoroughly with a cleanser according to skin type but taking care not to use any harsh or drying products .

Serums are great for adding luminosity or hydration to the skin and can even be mixed with your foundation for added glow and benefits .

Moisturise with a hydrating moisturiser and eye cream to keep skin smooth soft and supple.

Always use primer such as i – prime to lock the moisture into the skin and act as a base for your makeup.’

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
