Priming Skin for Makeup.

One of the most important steps in your makeup routine is probably the most overlooked -- your skincare. Really. For makeup to look its best, skin has to look it's best. It is super important to prime skin for makeup by making sure it is in the best possible condition by using the proper skin care. The right products can do things like reduce the appearance of pores, fines lines and wrinkles and smooth skin prior to makeup application.

Prime Skin for Makeup with Skin Care

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex instantly relaxes the look of wrinkles as it is applied to my skin so my skin looks better prior to applying makeup. This daily moisturizer also plumps my skin with a skin hydrating complex to make it look smooth so makeup simply lays better on my skin. My face feels like satin after I apply it and makeup just looks better over it. I pay extra special attention to the places on my face that need a little more attention like my forehead and smile lines. I gently rub a little extra bit of the complex into these areas and it is helping in just a few short weeks.

Another area that needs a lot of attention is my eye area. The skin around the eyes is much thinner and more sensitive than other areas of the face. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo does the trick in smoothing my lids and softening the look of the fine lines that I have around my eyes. It is actually two products in one package that takes care of both my eyes and my lashes. I first dab the anti-aging eye cream around my eyes to instantly smooth and firm the area. I see my lines plumps up and filled in. My concealer seems to glide on more evenly after using. Next, I use the lash serum and apply it over my lashes. This ultimate mascara primer instantly thickens and nourishes lashes. It acts as a base (primer) for my mascara and adds that extra layer of thickness I so desire my lashes to have.

I spend so much time on my makeup that it just makes perfect sense to use the proper skincare that works with it.

Olay products can be found at your favorite drugstore or mass retailer.

I use that lash duo product and got it on sale this summer! I like it as a lash primer actually and find it thickened my lashes too! Great job Olay!!
Wow Great review. I used Nu Skin before it was ok. I am constantly trying new products and Olay has always been consistent.
Never thought about it. I use skin care then primer to fill in pores. Good ideas as always Teri!
Dee - I'm so happy to hear that this works for you too!
Gwen - You can always depend on a great brand like Olay.
Louise - Not all skincare works like this; you have to select it properly for its filling and plumping properties. I think you'd be happy with the Regenerist products for this purpose.
I haven't seen the Wrinkle Revolution products yet, but i like the way it sounds. I use other Olay products and probably need to check this one out.
