Having a clean base is super important when it comes to makeup application. You want your skin to glow and look fresh, with or without makeup! The quickest way to give your face that extra *umph* and smooth texture is by dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that exfoliates your skin, getting rid of dirt and peach fuzz (see below!). By doing so, it removes the skin's surface layer and exposes new and healthy cells giving you that *glow*! Your skin becomes a blank canvas, fully prepped for any skincare or makeup routine.
Sensitive skin? Use heavy-duty skincare products? No worries, babes- dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and fits perfectly into any routine, no matter what products you're using. Now, for the look!
Really aiming for a natural look, I started with Ilia's True Skin Serum Foundation which really sets the tone for that dewy vibe. I am such a fan of Milk's Lip + Cream Blush stick, it perfectly covers both bases as promised (I finished off the lip with a little drug store lip gloss!). After a put on a light liner, I really rounded the eyes off with my favorite Cloud 9 lashes from Doe- they're super subtle but add SO much! I filled in the brows with Glossier's Boy Brow (a staple, imo), and added some Jason Wu Faux Freckle to really finish it off :)
If you're juuuust beginning your dermaplaning journey, no sweat- we recommend trying out No Mo-Stache's Facial Razor. It's portable, inexpensive hella' cute, and most importantly- very easy to use.
