We have all been through days when our foundation has not seen the best of days. It has caked up and looked a shade or two darker. Our skin looked like it was screaming for help beneath all the heavy mess. Yes, we are tackling just that today with the following products.

1. Exfoliation Using The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

It is well known that AHA ( Alpha Hydroxyl Acid) exfoliates the skin for an even and brighter looking skin while BHA (Beta Hydroxyl Acids) exfoliate the skin more deeply to clear pore congestion. This step is necessary to shed all those dead cells. Of course if you are not used to acid exfoliation we recommend a patch test and don't try this prior to any big events.

2. Add a hydrating serum like The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

3. Moisturize Your Skin Using The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This is necessary to moisturize your skin and retain the intense hydration throughout the day. This is the kind of hydration we are looking for when we use foundations be it matte or dewy.

4. A wake Up Call Using The Caudalie Beauty Elixir

A facial spray such as this one is an instant shot of vitamin that would refresh your skin and to wake up your complexion. This can be used throughout the day if you find the need to use it. Now, that is some value for money.

5. Prime Using The Smashbox Holidaze: Photo Finish Travel Primer Trio

The reason we are recommending this is because it is a trio of three amazing primers that would solve your needs at various times. It has a smoothing primer, a hydrating primer and a primer water that can be used before and after makeup. This step will prevent your makeup from splitting on your skin, settling in your lines, exaggerating the pores and also your makeup from oxidizing. 

6. Foundation Using Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

 This is the key step. It is very important to find a foundation that suits your skin. If you have dry skin find a more hydrating foundation and if you have oily skin find a more matte foundation. Also, don't forget to find a perfect match for your skin. The most important part is also in blending the foundation into your skin perfectly. Oh, and don't forget to run it down your neck too.
