How To Prep Your Skin For All Day Makeup ?

It happens to all of us. Looking in the mirror and seeing your once beautifully applied makeup has faded, smudged, and needs a touch-up. Seeing your perfectly blended concealer, flawlessly blended foundation, and flawless bronzer and blush fade away is disheartening after spending so much time on them. So it is vital to know how to prep your skin for all-day makeup.

Imagine your skin as a blank canvas. You must properly prep the skin before applying beauty products or skin oils. Outside factors like rain and humidity can easily erase your work.

When it comes to flawless makeup that lasts all day, the top makeup artist in Delhi got you covered. Here know the amazing tips to prep your skin.

Why Is It Important To Prep Skin Before Makeup ?

You wouldn’t go on a long trip without first checking that your car has enough gas, would you? The same goes for makeup. In order to keep your look in place (while still looking perfect) throughout the day, you need to properly prepare your skin.

You may end up with dry patches, dullness, or uneven coverage if you don’t take the time to prepare your makeup bag.


To prepare your skin for makeup, you should first clean and dry it. Gently massage your favorite cleanser into your skin employing circular motions to remove impurities, dirt, and oil.


When was your last exfoliation? Did you feel amazing afterwards? In addition to exfoliating your body, it’s important to exfoliate your face to remove dead skin cells that may block your pores. Do you have dry skin? Exfoliation can also help eliminate the appearance of dry patches on the skin, which can cause a blotchy complexion.

Some exfoliating formulas can be a bit harsh for those with sensitive skin. To ensure you don’t have a reaction, try a patch test on a small portion of your skin.

After cleansing your face, we recommend exfoliating. You can use your fingertips to gently massage the exfoliator formula into your skin after rinsing. Use lukewarm water to rinse your face.


Our everyday skincare routines often overlook the importance of toner, but it’s time to get on board with this step. The purpose of a toner is to calm, protect, and prepare your skin for the most important step of your routine-moisturizing.

Are you unsure how to use a toner? Use a cotton round to apply a small amount of the product to your face and neck.


The next thing you should do before makeup is to moisturize. While your skin is still slightly damp from the toner, apply a generous amount of hydrating serum to your face. Your skin will absorb the serum more effectively this way. Apply a moisturizer afterwards.

If you have dry skin, we recommend using a moisturizer that is hydrating and nourishing. Before applying foundation or primer, apply a moisturizer and let it sit on the face for a few minutes.


As part of your skincare routine, you should cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize, but when applying makeup all day, a primer may be the most important step. Using a primer will help you get a smooth, even canvas on your skin and will help your bronzer, foundation, blush, and other products last longer.

Every skin type requires a different primer. If you want your makeup to last from AM until PM, you need to use a primer specifically formulated for your skin type and concerns (and use it consistently).

Choosing the right primer depends on whether you want a dewy or matte finish (using a silicone-free primer is recommended). When applying a mattifying primer, oily skin will be prevented from becoming greasy or shiny throughout the day. To achieve a long-lasting, radiant finish, choose a hydrating primer for women with dry skin.

Prep Your Lips

Don’t forget to give some love to your pout, too, even if your face prep is done. When you have dry lips, your lipstick may appear flaky or uneven, particularly if you choose a matte or liquid formula. Coat your lips with our Lip Primer before applying your chosen shade. With this colorless, lightweight primer, lips are hydrated, smoothed, and prepped, so that they are ready for any lip look.

What Can I Do To Keep My Makeup Fresh All Day?

You won’t have to touch up your makeup every few hours if you follow our steps and prep your face properly.

Do you still experience dryness during the day? Give your complexion a quick midday refresh by spraying a few more spritzes of Dewy Set Setting Spray. For small touch-ups throughout the day, we recommend keeping Loose Setting Powder in your purse if you are still experiencing some shine by midday.
