Flawless make-up starts with a clean palette, and the only way you’re going to achieve this is with an effective cleanser, regular exfoliation, soothing serum and hydrating moisturiser. Each step is vital and as important as the next, building upon what will ultimately become your best base for applying make-up.
To the girl with the flawless make-up you know what I’m talking about, make-up will never settle as well on dry, lacklustre skin as it does on skin that is smooth, clear and glowing. There is no amount of primer or contouring that will disguise unhealthy skin and luckily for you Ella Baché HQ have mapped out a powerhouse routine to give you that perfect blank canvas - and who knows stick to the routine and you may realise you actually need less make-up then you originally thought.
A good, non invasive cleanser will wipe skin of any dirt, oils and make-up, clearing the surface of any impurities or blemishes that could potentially disrupt the application of make-up. For the truly dedicated, and here at Ella Baché, we recommend a double cleanse because it is the best possible way to ensure you have a clean canvas. Begin with a make-up cleanser such as Ella Baché radiance make-up remover followed by your tailored cleanser, this ensuring you have removed impurities and also treated your skins’ specific needs.
When it comes to the skin’s texture exfoliating wins hands down, a weekly scrub will see your skin clean of dead skin cells, blocked pores and blemishes. A highly effective exfoliator leaves your skin almost instantly radiant and revitalised. Smooth, soft and blemish free skin; all the things needed for that no make-up, make-up look.
