Get Your Glam On: Skincare To Complement Your Make-Up Routine

Hello Beauty!

Even though we’re all staying at home right now, we just can’t wait for the day we can put on a full face of make-up and get all glammed up for a big night out with friends. Admittedly, make-up isn’t quite at the top of most of our agendas at the moment, and we can all probably agree that it’s been quite nice to have a break from using it. However, with some form of normality (fingers crossed!) right around the corner, we wanted to show you how some of our skincare products can complement and enhance your daily make-up routine.

Applying Your Make-Up

Using a primer before applying your foundation is an absolute must if you want your make-up to stay in place and look flawless for the whole day (and night!). A primer is the first step in your application and creates an extra layer between your skin and make-up.

Our COCO PRIME Shimmering Face Fluid is the perfect product to use before you apply your foundation. Its lightweight texture conceals blemishes and covers pores and fine lines to ensure a velvety smooth application. If you haven’t already got your hands on it, we can guarantee it’s quickly going to become your new make-up bestie! Want to hear our favourite thing about this product? Not only can it be used as a primer, it can also be used as a highlighter if you’re looking for a more natural glow. Speaking of a glow, why not try adding our CARA RISE Anti-Ox Face Glow Drops into your routine? This serum has a powerful mix of natural ingredients to help give your skin a natural and subtle shimmer.

Top Tip: Primers work best on clean, moisturised skin, so before using our COCO PRIME, make sure you’ve cleansed thoroughly with our COCO FRESH Detox Face Cleansing Foam and moisturised with our COCO DAY Detox Daily Face Cream.

Removing Your Make-Up

Taking your make-up off after a long day can be a bit of a chore, but we’d say it’s the most important part of your skincare routine. We recommend using a cleansing balm which is much gentler on the skin compared to conventional make-up wipes (and better for the planet too). Our COCO MELT Make-Up Remover Balm gently loosens make-up and dirt, whilst sweet almond and coconut oil nourish the skin and provide additional moisture. It can even dissolve stubborn waterproof makeup, all thanks to its oily texture.

One of our favourite MUA’s, Ash, (check out her TikTok page here) recommends using our ROSE REFINE Charcoal and Clarifying Clay Face Mask as a final step in your make-up removal routine. She says it’s the perfect way to calm your skin because it removes redness and inflammation and makes your skin super smooth. Coming from someone who uses a lot of make-up on a daily basis, we think that’s pretty great advice!

Top Tip: Looking for a complete collection to help with your make-up removal? Well, look no further than our Advanced Cleansing Set! It not only contains our COCO MELT Make-Up Remover Balm but also our COCO FRESH Cleanser and COCO CALM Facial Toner as well as some other treats to help with your removal routine.

Preparing Your Canvas

If you wear make-up on a regular basis, it’s important to look after your skin and ensure you’re giving it the care and attention it deserves. You probably already do the basic routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising but did you know that we recently launched a brand new range of Boosters? These small but mighty concentrated formulas have been specially designed to take your skincare routine that one step further. 

Jess, another of our favourite MUA’s (check out her TikTok page here) stresses how important it is to look after your skin, especially as a MUA. Her go-to products are three of our Boosters – 10% NIACINAMIDE, 10% VITAMIN C and 2% HYALURON. She says using these in combination with one another keeps my skin hydrated whilst not being too oily.

Well, there you have it, Beauties! We hope this can help to transform your make-up routine. We can’t wait to hear which product you try next.
