With the holiday season recently behind us, many of us attended festive parties and family gatherings. Did you find yourself reaching for your makeup kit more than us equal? If so, you are certainly not alone since many of us feel our best with the help of cosmetics. Whether you prefer a clean look or find added confidence with the help of makeup, Fountain of You, Melbourne, FL’s premier anti-aging and aesthetic clinic, is here to assist you with your holiday look. We know that many women love to use cosmetics as a way to enhance their natural beauty and when it comes to proper application techniques, the task can seem daunting. Have you ever wondered what order you need to apply your makeup in order to make it work its best for you? Here are some tips to help you achieve your best look with or without the assistance of cosmetics.

First and foremost, you want to start with great skin. This means proper cleansing followed by a great toner. Once these steps are completed, move on to serums, eye creams, and finish it all off with a moisturizer and sunscreen. Oftentimes you can combine the last two steps with a product that contains both. Make sure to allow sufficient time, 30 minutes should do, before you apply your makeup. Have questions about a product line that will work best for your needs? Please feel free to contact our office with any questions you may have. We carry Biopelle products that are great additions to your skincare routine and make perfect gifts too. If you want the added confidence that Botox or Dermal Fillers in Melbourne FL can allow, we can assist you there as well. We offer a FREE consultation and can help you determine what treatments are best for your needs.

Now that your skin is in great shape, let’s start with product application. You want to keep this key rule in mind: creams before powders. There are a variety of cosmetic types out there and you will want to discover what works best for you. If you prefer creams such a BB, CC or liquid foundation, great. If mineral powders are more your style, go for it. You just want to remember to apply any creamy products before you utilize powders.

Begin with your foundation first, provided it is a liquid. If you’d like, you can utilize a liquid primer beforehand to create a smooth application surface. The next step in the process is a concealer. Now, you want to choose a shade that is one lighter than your skin tone. For those of you who want to skip the foundation, apply concealer as your first step to color correct any imbalances. If you use a powder foundation, just put your concealer on first. The same holds true if you like a cream blush. Remember the cardinal rule of liquids before powders and you will do just fine.

The next step is blush, bronzers, and highlighters. Apply as needed to create a flawless look. Now your face makeup is completed! Let’s move onto the eyes. Many of you love a creamy eyeshadow so start with these first before you layer on any powders. Finish the process with eyeshadow powders in your preferred application process and then move on to liners and mascara. Voila!! You’ve now got eyes that shine.

Lips are the crown jewel in your look and there are so many choices. If you like a more natural look, you can go for a lightly pigmented tint or gloss. If you want your lips to last, line your lips and apply a highly pigmented color. Whatever your choice, you can’t go wrong if you apply it evenly.

Here at Fountain of You, we wish you all a Happy New Year! We want you to walk in confidence every step of the way. If you’re in the Viera or Melbourne areas of Brevard County and are interested in cosmetic services like laser hair removal, facials, or lip injections, call us today.
