Makeup Application Q & A

Why Should I Get a Professional Makeup Application?

If you wear makeup, it’s important that you use cosmetic products that promote healthy skin and reduce your risk of early signs of aging.

If you suffer from a skin condition like acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or discoloration, you may find that covering your blemishes can be difficult. More importantly, while some makeup products cover your blemishes, they may not be the best for your skin.

Your licensed esthetician is knowledgeable about various skin types, skin conditions, and healthy skin care products. They are skilled at the application of makeup that helps to enhance your best features and diminish the effects of aging and skin damage.

Can I Wear Makeup if I Have a Skin Condition?

With professional instruction, makeup can be a valuable asset to your skin care regimen, even if you suffer from a skin condition.

Many cosmetic products are not the best for your skin, because they have harmful ingredients such as:

  • Harsh chemicals
  • Artificial dyes
  • Fragrance
  • Talc

These can lead to sensitivities, allergic reactions, and clogged pores, especially if you have an underlying skin problem. The good news is that your licensed esthetician at SkinMD knows which products can be used safely and effectively.

What are the Best Makeup Products?

Your esthetician determines which products are best for you and your skin based on the presence and type of any blemishes, as well as your skin’s:

  • Sensitivity
  • Level of hydration
  • Overall health

They also take into account your specific aesthetic goals and any history of skin conditions.

What Does Professional Makeup Application Entail?

Your licensed esthetician at SkinMD takes around 30-45 minutes to show you how to properly apply makeup in a way that helps you achieve your desired look.

Your tutorial includes education about:

  • Makeup contouring and highlighting
  • Eyebrow and eyelash care
  • Foundation color matching
  • Healthy skin care
  • False eyelash application
  • Brush and accessory care
  • Makeup application techniques
