Contouring the face may take a few steps back as strobing takes the spotlight. As demonstrated by Nikkie Tutorials' channel, strobing is basically highlighting parts of your face 2 or 3 times more than usual for it to really stand out. It gives you a contour effect but with a more dewy and glowy finish.

Who knew you could actually cook something on your face? Well, it's not edible; but it would definitely make you feel more than satisfied after doing it! Baking is a technique to make your under eye area free from creasing. Just like any cooking method, it needs a few more ingredients than what you usually have in your makeup routine. Watch this video by Heidi Hamoud to know what these "ingredients" are and how they result in a flawless look.

Moisturising will help you look and feel younger by giving you softer and hydrated skin. It locks in moisture to make sure your skin won't dry out throughout the day. Soft, moisturised skin also leads to youthful looking skin, wonderful for those looking to up their anti-ageing regimen.

#2: Moisturise with SPF

SPF is very important and a moisturiser that contains SPF is one of the best things ever. Use the right kind of moisturiser for your skin type that contains SPF 15 sunscreen or higher. It's all about finding the right formula that works on your skin.

#3: Pick a moisturiser for your skin type

Just a few basic reminders, if you have oily skin, don't buy a moisturiser for dry skin. The same principle applies to other skin types as well. To make it easier for you, there are moisturisers that are made for all skin types. They contain ingredients such as water, glycerin, and petrolatum that make it a good formula no matter your skin type.
