Updated: How I prep my skin for dry/comination skin for foundation

Hi Ladies so as you can tell from the title I have dry/cominbation skin which is sensitive. Here is how I prep it before I apply my foundation: 

-First I wet my skin and then I take my Simple Kind to skin facial wash gel and massage it in and rince and pat dry with a clean towel.

-Secondly I apply my moisturizer I use Simples Rich Moisturizier. It moisturizes well and doesn't irritate my skin. I use this all over my face apart from on my eye lids and under my eyes. For my eyes and under eyes I use the Simple Anti Wrinkle eye cream. I dab it on my eyelids and up to the brow bone and under my eyes. (I use anti wrinkle just to prevent aging)

-Thirdly I apply my primer, I switch between two. I either use my Gosh primer or my No7 colour calming primer if my redness is bad. I apply my primer all around my face apart for my eye lids but I do apply it under my eyes. Then on my eyelids I will either use my Two Faced shadow insurance or my Urban Decay primer potion although I prefer the Two faced shadow insurance.

So there you have it how I prep my skin for foundation. I find that Simple is a great band if you suffer from sensitive skin. Its gentle but works, also its affordable.

Thanks for reading!
Take care,

  1. My skin is dry too so i'm all about the moisturizer! I've been on the look out for a decent eye cream too so I may try out that Clinique one! :-)

    1. It's really good and lasts ages! Thanks for reading x

  2. I have really oily skin, so I find it very difficult to know how to prep it! Lucky for you to have dry skin! haha :)
