The best way to prep your skin for makeup application

For most of us, the lockdown is proving to be a time for self care and regular workouts. From scrolling Instagram for makeup inspiration to browsing our favorite beauty apps for tips and latest products, the list can actually be exhausting!

Amidst the makeup obsession and endless tutorials, what often gets overlooked is the skin prepping that you ned before you put on your makeup. The right products and tools can make a world’s difference when it comes to your makeup looking good and staying put.

If you skip on your skincare routine before applying makeup, you can end up with an uneven and patchy coverage which will not be flattering at all. On the bright side, prepping your skin before makeup is pretty simple and extremely satisfying. All it takes is following a few simple steps.

Clean skin

First and foremost you need to make sure that your face is squeaky clean. Wash your face to get rid of all the impurities, dirt and dead cells. It will also remove all the excess oils that are clogging your pores. This will make your face a clean canvas for makeup application. Choose a cleanser or face wash which is mild and suits your skin type.


A face pack or a face mask is a perfect skin care treatment to tackle your skincare concerns. It helps all the other skincare products to work more effectively. The moisturizers and serums will be better absorbed by your skin. Indulgeo Essentials PORELESS pore minimizing face pack will hydrate your skin and minimize the appearance of the pores. This will ensure that your makeup applies smoothly on the skin. This face pack is enriched with nutrients that will not only extract impurities from deep within the pores but also promote cell generation. Your skin will be glowing and ready for the next step.

Tone your face

The next step is to tone your face with a facial mist or toner. It is done to remove the remaining impurities from the surface of your skin. Indulgeo Essentials has a wide range of facial toners that you can choose from. They are made from 100% natural and pure ingredients that will not harm your skin. Spray the toning mist directly from the spray bottle or apply it with the help of a cotton pad. The alcohol-free formula will help to tighten your pores and soften your skin. Toners help the makeup to stay longer on your skin. Wait till the toner is completely dry before moving to the next step.


Give your face a good massage with a facial oil so that it can reach deep inside your skin. Massaging your face will help in boosting the blood circulation and your face will look radiant. You can select from the variety of skin oils by Indulgeo Essentials like Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Jojoba Oil. There is Wonder Gold Oil for sensitive skin beauties. These oils are extremely lightweight and rich in antioxidants that work well to improve your skin texture and the overall quality of your skin.


This is one of the most important steps because it can make or break your base. Some people think that oily skin people do not need to moisturize but that’s far from truth. Choose a non-greasy moisturizer that will not feel sticky. Indulgeo Essentials Aqua gold Gel, as the name suggests, is a gel-based moisturizer. It is infused with 24K gold flakes and natural ingredients that provide a surge of cooling hydration to your skin. It is suitable for all skin types and contains squalane, whose molecular structure is so close to the skin’s own. It penetrates deep inside the layers of skin to provide hydration and balance the oil levels. It will act as an amazing primer right before you apply the foundation.

Don’t forget your lips!

For a smooth lipstick application, you need to take care of your lips as well. Lipstick on dry and chapped lips can look very unflattering. Bold lipstick shades can attract attention to cracked and flaked lips. Pamper your pout with the Indulgeo Essentials lip oil. It is a blend of essential oils and 24K gold flakes. It will plump up your lips and provide deep hydration for a flawless lipstick application.

Following these steps will ensure that your skin is clean, smooth and perfectly hydrated so that your makeup will be flawless and long-lasting.
