The key to having great skin is a solid skincare regimen that takes into account healthy eating habits, an array of skincare products that work to combat your skin issues, and most importantly, a good skin cleansing routine that properly removes makeup, dirt, and bacteria from your face. 

So what is the most effective way to cleanse your skin? Here are 3 ways we've found that have worked wonders for us!


A Cleansing Brush

When it comes to getting rid of deep-seeded dirt, one of our favourite ways is to use a cleansing brush. We're currently loving Clinique's Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush for its soft yet firm bristles that are slightly tapered for a truly deep clean. It also provides gentle exfoliation which primes the face to better absorb skincare products post-wash.

This system is best used with Clinique's Foaming Sonic Soap--an oil-free, non-acnegenic cleanser that cushions your face against the cleansing brush, gently-yet-effortlessly removing all makeup residue, dirt, and bacteria. Best thing about it: its gentle formula of glycerin, sucrose, and caffeine--a combination that's great for preventing and soothing breakouts.

Double Cleansing

One of the main benefits of the Double Cleansing method is that you are assured that you've cleansed all the makeup and dirt from your face. This is best for days when you've worn heavy-duty, waterproof makeup. For this, you'd need a good oil-based cleanser such as Shu Uemura's range of cleansing oils.

With dry hands and face, rub the oil all over your face until all of your makeup has been dissolved. With a bit of water, gently emulsify the oil on your face. Rinse it off with warm water and follow it up with your go-to face wash.

Simple Wash & Tone

Sometimes, it is better to keep things simple. So in between Sonic Cleansing or Double Cleansing days, opt for a simple wash and tone routine. This regimen is also best for days when you've worn little to no makeup.

Pick a facial wash that is gentle on the skin, like Clinique's Mild Liquid Facial Soap and follow it up with a tried-and-tested toner such as Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner to clean and tighten your pores.

It's really all about the base--how your base makeup looks determines everything about your look. You may have the most amazing eye makeup look you've ever done in your life but it all falls short if your base makeup is a mess. The base makeup is the foundation of everything else you'll put on on your face, so you better take it seriously!

Here 5 things you need to do to achieve a flawless base makeup.


Step 1: Prime for a smooth canvas

Primers are essential to a flawless base makeup, especially when you want a look that will last for hours. The primer makes the face a smooth canvas and determines the kind of finish you want to achieve. So whether you want a dewy, satin, or matte finish, having a primer that offers these things is the first step to getting that. There are tons to choose from and even moisturisers nowadays can double up as a primer. 

Step 2: Cover and Conceal Blemishes

If you have eye bags and blemishes that you want to cover up, use a concealer that's a shade darker than your actual skin tone. Dab the formula gently on the blemish area so it has that "smudged" and "blurred" effect. If it's not completely covered up, don't worry! You still have step 3 to finish the deed. 

Step 3: Apply Foundation

Invest in a good foundation that matches your skin type and your skin tone. It takes a few trial and errors but once you find that perfect foundation, cling to it! A great foundation should give you medium to full coverage but it shouldn't feel heavy on your face. It must also be buildable and easy to blend for a flawless look. You can apply it with your fingers, and then blend it out with a sponge or brush for an even skin tone.

Step 4: Add Dimension

This is where the fun comes in--highlighting and contouring!  Areas to highlight are: under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose, chin, brow bone, cupid's bow, and under your cheekbones. Then with a contour pencil or matte bronzer, contour your cheekbones, sides of your nose, and the temples of your forehead. Of course, it all still depends on your preferences on which areas to shape but as long as it's all blended out nicely and looks flawless on you, you're safe to move on to step 5. 

Step 5: Set Your Base Makeup

This is usually the final step of any makeup routine. So after you've done your brows, eyes, and lips, lock in everything with powder and setting spray. Use a powder brush and apply it all over you face. Make sure you don't put too much or it will look cakey! Then finish off with setting or finishing spray, wait a few seconds for it dry and you're good to go! You can now smile and take a selfie to admire the artwork you've finished!
