How to Prep and Prime Skin Before Makeup

05/18/17

It is extremely important to prep and prime skin before putting any makeup on! Watch this tutorial with Sam from Pixiwoo, as she demonstrates how to use the Real Techniques Miracle Cleansing Sponge and Prep + Prime Set to get your skin ready for makeup.

Start with gentle exfoliation to remove any excess dirt and oils on the skin. Dampen the Miracle Cleansing Sponge, apply a cleanser to the tip, and buff all over your skin. Rinse with a damp washcloth. Next, apply an eye cream using the cooling Under Eye Reviver from the Prep + Prime Set to reduce puffiness and refresh the skin around your eyes. Use the Prep Brush from the same set for an even application of moisturizer and primer. You can also use the Miracle Face + Body Sponge to apply illuminating cream to any visible areas of skin. With skin cleaned and prepped, your skin and makeup will look flawless.
