1. Skincare starts first
Most of us wash morning and night, but if you don't, at least sweep your face with a cotton pad soaked in cleansing water when you wake up. It will help prepare your skin by eliminating excess oil and moisturizer from the night before.
2. Exfoliate regularly
Creating that poreless look requires regular maintenance. By exfoliating 2-3 times per week, your skin will be more smooth, and you'll have less dry patches sucking up foundation.

3. Apply a primer that's right for your skin
There's no reason not to prime when you can buy one that suits your skin type perfectly. Tip: If you're feeling adventurous, try the Nivea Post Shave Balm for men that's been making the rounds on YouTube.
4. Try not to layer product under your eyes
If you use correctors or concealer under your eyes, be careful not to bring your foundation all the way to the waterline. This prevents caking.
5. Apply some pressure
A common complaint is that makeup makes your pores look visible. To avoid this, work your foundation into the skin with a brush and then follow up by pressing it in further with a damp beauty sponge.

6. Set to prevent slipping
Don't feel pressured to apply powder to set your makeup. There are great setting sprays on the market that can do that for you without the extra layer.

Holiday parties and events give you the perfect opportunity to add a little glam to your regular look.
