How To Get Your Skin Looking Haute In A Skin-Baring Blouse

By  | 

It’s wedding season and party season is right around the corner, so bust out those backless cholis and cut-out dresses you’ve been waiting to wear all year. But of course, you can’t just slap on some makeup, pull on our dresses, and call it a day. Skin-baring dresses require a little more effort, especially if you want to perfect the look from top to toe.

 

1. Exfoliate

Plan your day accordingly — this step starts in the shower. Exfoliate with a scrub that nourishes and sloughs off dead skin cells. Rinse yourself with warm water and work the scrub in circular motions.

2. For Those Hard-To-Reach Places

Try an exfoliating brush or back exfoliator to reach areas like your back — a vital step if you’re wearing a backless blouse.

3. Hair Removal

Hair removal is like an extra exfoliation step: it cleanses and evens out your skin, as well as removes hair. I find shaving to be the best method, but of course, that requires the perfect razor.

4. Moisturise

After you step out of the shower, pat your exfoliated skin dry (don’t rub) and apply a calming moisturiser that adds to the glow of your skin, without being too heavy and clogging your pores.

5. Correct

If you’re conscious of marks or pigmentation on your body, treat it like your face and cover it up. Try a peach corrector and use your fingers (or get help) to dab some product on the spot. Then, go over the corrector by dabbing a little bit of your foundation on top of it.

6. Illuminate

Use a bronzer or body glow as a final step to illuminate your skin and give it that extra wow factor, so you stand out at the party! If you don’t have bronzer, you can add a liquid illuminator to your body lotion and apply it all over. Be careful if you’ve applied foundation, you’ll want to dab on top of those spots, instead of rubbing and messing up your body makeup.
