Cleansing the skin first and foremost is a no brainer. We prefer to use a gentle yet effective cleanser that’ll not only clear out impurities, but also hydrate. We’re not kidding when we say our favorite cleanser of all time is the Take Off The Day Vitamin Sea Cleanser by Sorella. This cleanser is formulated with an all star cast of naturally derived and organic ingredients. With Vitamin C, Aloe, Rosehip, Tea Tree and Coconut; this holy grail gentle enough for daily use yet effective enough to cleanse the skin of impurities.
Everyone’s first instinct is to reach for a physical exfoliant when they hear that they need to exfoliate. However, that can be really harsh on the skin, especially for daytime use. Our answer to keep your skin full of nutrients while efficiently exfoliating is to use a AHA or BHA rich toner. We totally swoon over the Versed Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution. This bad boy not only helps fade hyperpigmentation and even out your skin tone; but it’s combo of four different hydrating acids create an overall brighter appearance!
Next up on your pre-makeup to-do list is moisturizing. This has to be our favorite step, because this will really make or break your application. The Water Cream Oil-Free Pore Minimizing Moisturizer by Tatcha is a cult favorite here at HEB because of its unique, water-burst formula. This hydration bomb deeply delivers treatment benefits, hydrating without leaving you sticky or greasy – something we’d all like less of!
The last and possibly most important step in our prep routine. We’re gonna be real – each and every skin type is different and calls for a primer specific for its specific needs. However, I think we’ve cracked the code to the perfect primer. When we say this stuff is good, we mean it. We use it on almost every one of our clients because of its oil free and smoothing formula. The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer is our current favorite here at HEB. “Unlike a basic mattifying primer, Pro Filt’r’s cushiony, touch-me-now texture mattifies skin with the lightest possible feel for a full-on sensorial experience. The universal invisipink formula creates a filter-like blurring effect and melts instantly into all skin tones without a trace.” This Primer works all day to last all night, giving you a long lasting and lightweight coverage.
