It has been way too long since this blog discussed skin prep. In fact, the last time was in the late 2015 post, “Flawless Beauty and Skin.” The fact is I have been constantly showing how I take care of my skin all over the internet and just not this blog.

The fact is makeup is only as good as the skin it sits on.  So if you do not know how prep your face before makeup application you are setting your self up for failure.

Maybe you think that because you don’t wear a lot of makeup that you therefore don’t need to know how to prep your face for makeup. Think again!

When to Apply Pore Minimizer

The number one question you probably have about how to prepare your face before makeup is when to apply pore minimizer.

Don’t worry, you are not alone as many others have asked this same question. The quick answer is that you either apply before primer or if you are skipping the primer (which I don’t recommend), then you apply before foundation.


  1. Lumiere De Vie Micellar Cleanser – to draw out cleanse and draw out impurities, dirt, oil and residue
  2. Skintelligence pH Normalizer – to balance and soothe the skin. Restoring the skin’s normal pH levels helps serums absorb better and makeup to glide on more smoothly. This saves you product!
  3. Lumiere de Vie Pore Minimizing Serum – to instantly blur imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores
  4. Motives Complexion Perfection Primer – This oil-free, smoothing formula extends the life of your foundation for the perfect, flawless look.
