Keep your skin looking fresh with this hydrating base routine

Many of us find our base routine to be the most troublesome aspect of makeup application. While you want to look as flawless as possible, the look and feel of overdone, caked-on makeup is fundamentally unappealing. But there's another way to achieve a perfect looking base — and it relies on proper prep and skincare.
If your skin isn't prepped and primed, there's just no way your makeup is going to look its best. By taking the time to ensure your skin is properly hydrated, you can be sure any base product you put on top will look more natural, glowing and fresh.

I love side braids. There's something super chic about the way they lay down the head and across the shoulder. The look is a little softer than some more traditional plaits.
