5 products to prep your face for makeup

How party proof skincare is essential to making up like a pro

The holiday season is in full swing, and the real partying is about to begin. But did you know that party proofing your makeup application goes oh so much smoother when your skincare game is on point? From getting a fab glow going to priming your skin for makeup, it’s all right here. Always remember to cleanse your skin thoroughly before you get started on that smoky eye, and here are some of our favorite products to help you perfect that pout and get to glowing.

 Nothing beats bright, glowy skin when it comes to shining bright during the season. Our smash hit Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum combines two powerhouse ingredients for your best and brightest skin.  From restoring radiance and clarity to dull, tired skin​

to smooth fine lines and uneven texture while improving elasticity, this serum is like sunshine in a bottle.​ Use it morning and evening and follow with moisturizer and sunscreen.

Though some of us thrive on the chaos of the holiday season rush, many of us also feel stressed and tired. For an instant lift, try our Hyperlift Eye™ Instant Eye Fix, an instant tightening treatment that visibly erases eye bags, puffiness, lines & crepey texture.  This temporary tightening treatment makes a perfect pre-game pick me up. Who doesn’t love a bit of self-care in instant gratification form when work/life is hectic?

The holidays are all about a gorgeous red lip. But if your lips are dry or chapped, that lipstick will look less than lovely.  Our Double Fix™ for Lips Plumping & Vertical Line Treatment visibly plumps and minimizes the look of lines around the mouth while hydrating and enhancing your natural lip color, if you dare to go bare. A fab stocking stuffer and mistletoe must-have.

The key to beautiful skin and a stellar/smooth makeup application is a well moisturized face. Our SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate is an icon and the#1 selling stretch cream turned anti-wrinkle phenomenon. This intensive moisturizer targets 10 types of collagen to visibly improve wrinkles & stretch marks. And if you ask anyone around our office, they will absolutely tell you that they won’t stay or leave home without this essential product that put us on the map. It’s just that good.

If you want your tinted moisturizer or foundation to go the distance and go from scary to smooth, adding a primer to your routine is a game changer. We love our Line BlurFector™ Instant Wrinkle Blurring Primer, which instantly blurs the look of makeup and keeps makeup from settling in creases. This breathable, skincare-infused primer is like skincare for your makeup bag and will make your makeup more wearable, and your skin more bare-able. And if it’s the no-makeup makeup look you’re after, this primer can help you achieve more flawless looking skin, without makeup! Also makes an excellent (self)gift.

 Also remember to get a good night’s sleep, stay hydrated, and watch your sugar and caffeine intake, even though we all want all the sugar cookies and peppermint lattes. It’s a season to indulge, but to keep your skin its glowy best, give it the TLC it craves with all the above.  Happiest of holidays and hope you enjoy our skincare tips for makeup magic.
