As the antioxidant defender, the Vitamin C serum by Mad Hippie is all types of skin friendly. It freshens up your skin in an instant and does an excellent job at plumping up any dull patches to get your skin ready for foundation application.
The Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution helps make makeup application a whole lot simpler. This is chock full of vitamin C and works to diminish spots and even out the skin — meaning your foundation doesn’t have to work as hard.
Your concealer will never look better than when you use Lancôme Genifique, since it creates the perfect canvas for makeup. We love how this eye serum makes us feel a lot less puffy and red, and we guarantee you won’t want to stop using it once you start.
Battling fine lines when it comes to makeup application is a frustrating feat — but prepping your face with the Skinceuticals HA Intensifier makes it a whole lot easier. This makes skin feel soft and buoyant so makeup glides right on.
If you’ve ever felt personally victimized by oil, the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil has got your back. Prepping your skin with this oil helps reduce shine throughout the day, and it makes makeup appear a lot more matte.
To keep your pores looking tiny, our go-to serum is La Roche-Posay Effaclar. This glycolic acid serum instantly makes your skin feel extremely smooth and clarified.
