It (almost) goes without saying: clean and clear skin starts with hydration, which is the groundwork of
great make-up. Spend time on this, even if it’s only a minute or two. Don’t put your skin under unnecessary stress by quickly slapping on cream. Instead, work slowly, gently massaging your face to
remove toxins, focusing on your eye area, between your brows and around your lip line (where dry make-up shows first).Soothing, almost-slippery formulas make great bases, too.
