GET THE GLOW: How to use Argan oil as a primer and with your foundation.


How to ‘GET THE GLOW’ look?

There are two ways to use Argan Oil in your make-up routine:

1. On a freshly cleaned face apply a drop or two  (For drier skin use two drops, but for oilier skin just use one) in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to warm up the oil. Gently cover your face with a small amount of oil. It will go a lot further than you think! Oils don’t sit on the surface of the skin, they sink deeply into the superficial layers. They provide instant hydration lasting for several hours. Apply your foundation immediately. This will ensure it blends with the oil, creating a well hydrated and you will be rewarded with a ‘Get The Glow’ complexion. It will also hide any  fine lines, blemishes and sun spots.

2. The best way to apply oil and foundation is by mixing the two together. To do this you will need a beauty blender or a small pot and a clean make-up brush. Add a drop of pure natural oil to the foundation then blend and apply with a soft brush. Apply to your skin, as you would usually do with your foundation, and you’ll notice the smoothness of the application. You will be rewarded with a natural ‘Get The Glow’ look  and not a flakey finish.



Why you should ‘GET THE GLOW’ look?

Primer bridges the gap between skincare and make-up and it should be the first step in your daily beauty routine. It acts as a middle layer protector between your naked skin and make-up. It helps lock in underlying moisture and natural nutrients. Therefore it’s incredibly important to pick a high quality and non-irritant product.

Traditionally cream bases are favoured to create a smooth barrier and canvas between the skin and make-up. Good quality oils are now used by many celebrity make-up artists, including Daniel Chinchilla and Beau Nelson, keep both the skin glowing and to create a smooth and healthy foundation look. Pure argan oil is the most impactful and natural oil that can be utilised in this way, for stunning skin depth and beauty.
