Should You Use Moisturizer Before Makeup?

Most makeup fails boil down to the fact that many don’t know why using a moisturizer before makeup is so important. Without moisturizing the skin, concealer and foundation crease, tend to seep into fine lines, making skin look far from flawless. On the other hand, moisturized skin becomes a smooth canvas to which makeup adheres and ultimately boosts the staying power of your foundation and concealer. Makeup settles better on moisturized skin, resisting longer throughout the day while looking impeccable. No flakes, no crease. Plus, pores appear shrunk when you use moisturizer before foundation, giving that even, impeccable look.

Using a suitable moisturizer for your skin type before applying makeup is also crucial. While oily skin types need gel-like and lightweight formulas, a rich, emollient moisturizer does better for dry and mature skins. Otherwise, you risk canceling the tremendous benefits moisturizer has before makeup.

Do I still need a primer if I used moisturizer before makeup? 

Yes, you still need a primer, even if you’ve used moisturizer before makeup. Even though it’s not mandatory, it will help if you use moisturizer, primer and only after layer the foundation. In this way, you help makeup products to adhere easier, prevent makeup meltdown, and minimize the appearance of uneven texture or prominent pores.

So, have a cleansed base, exfoliate regularly, and use moisturizer before makeup. Think of moisturizer underneath makeup as a critical hinge-point for your skin and for your makeup, the key to an infallible look.
