This beauty brand continues to develop skincare-infused cosmetic products that will deliver pigment while providing our skin the nourishment it deserves.
When we’re to focused on sleek brows and sharp contours, base routines are often overlooked. While it includes a strict skincare routine and a good night’s sleep—it all boils down to your base routine. Knowing how to apply foundation, concealer, and powder properly seems simple enough, but finding the perfect products makes the difference.
I agree with ‘skincare first, makeup after‘, but why not invest in makeup products infused with skincare ingredients? Y.O.U Beauty believes in the importance of having good and healthy skin as the base of a great makeup look. That’s why this beauty brand continues to deliver skincare-infused cosmetic products that will deliver pigment while providing our skin the nourishment it deserves. When we’re all about that base, here’s a step-by-step guide to picture-perfect makeup.
Step 1: Skin Prep
The first step should be all about skin prepping. Since we’re putting layers of makeup, the skin needs to be clean, moisturized, and smooth. If we’re not properly prepped and hydrated before applying base makeup, the final look wouldn’t reach its full potential—nor will it last long enough.
Note that choosing a moisturizer with ceramides can help to lock in moisture. Y.O.U Radiance Up! Deep Moisturizing Cream doesn’t only hydrate, but also strengthens and supports skin barrier thanks to Ceramide 1-3-6.
Step 2: Color Correct
If you have acne marks, discoloration, and dark circles, applying a color corrector before your foundation can be a game-changer. Color correcting may seem intimidating and best left to the makeup gurus, but a good color-corrector should seamlessly blend into your skin, neutralizing discolorations that foundations and concealers might miss.
Y.O.U Cloud Touch Correcting Concealer Palette is a multi-functional creamy concealer that provides two corrective colors and two concealer shades that can correct and conceal blemishes. Infused with Ceramides and Centella Asiatica, this palette brings you that smooth, buildable coverage that evens out your skin tone while showing some love with the hydration and nourishment it’s been craving.
Step 3: Skin Tint
The biggest difference between skin tints and foundation—or any other complexion makeup product—is the level of coverage. Skin tints, being designed for a more minimalist routine, allows some of your natural complexion to show through. If you’re looking for sheer coverage, a skin tint would be best for your next purchase.
Y.O.U Beauty Cloud Touch Blurring Skin Tint is a lightweight, skincare-infused, blurring liquid foundation that delivers a soft-matte finish. Formulated with Film-Forming Technology, it builds a breathable skin layer capable of locking in makeup for up to 24 hours, while providing SPF 25 PA+++ to help protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Whether you’re in for a long workday or a weekend getaway, your skin’s sun-protected.
Step 4: Conceal
If you still have blemishes that are visible after putting on a skin tint, a good concealer can help give your skin that picture-perfect look. Concealers generally have a higher concentration of pigment, so they’ll take care of what needs attention. Apply Y.O.U NoutriWear+ Complete Cover Concealer on areas that need extra coverage like under the eyes and dark spots.
Step 4: Set
If you’ve always avoided powder for fear of being cakey, you’re missing out. Whether you have oily skin, fighting sweat, or simply setting your makeup, loose powders are the real deal. This makeup product keeps your base makeup, cream contours, and liquid blushes in place, preventing them from creasing and helping them stay put all day (or night). Need recos?
Y.O.U Noutriwear Airy Fit Loose Powder prolongs makeup and has skin-loving ingredients like Centella Asiatica that boost collagen production. The best part? This loose powder comes in three shades!
Step 5: Lock
Having setting spray in your makeup stash is an absolute necessity. After all, what’s more annoying than having your makeup melt off your face just a few hours after you’ve put in all that effort? Without setting spray, all the previous steps will slide, smudge, and fade before your next break.
Consider Y.O.U NoutriWear+ Makeup Stay Lock Mist, a nourishing setting spray that contains Filmexel®, Sodium Hyaluronate, and Immortelle C-lock Essence. This formula effectively locks in makeup, reducing the need for midday touch-ups.
