True, getting makeup to look flawless can only be achieved through professional makeovers, heavy airbrushing, and a few photoshop editing sessions. But you can get pretty darn close if you know what you're doing! Here are four steps that anyone can use to get moving the the right direction. Getting your makeup to go on a little smoother isn't just for the pros anymore!

Start with a smooth foundation. Now, I'm not talking about the makeup, here! What I'm talking about is your skin. Achieving smooth skin is half the battle of making your makeup look good. Even if it is expertly applied by a seasoned professional, if your skin is rough, flaky or covered in acne, a team of experts couldn't eliminate the bumps. If you suffer from acne, look in to some remedies that will clear up your acne. There are hundreds of acne solutions on the market and you may have to try a few until you find one that works for you, but Pro-Activ is a good place to start!
Exfoliate, wash, moisturize! These are three crucial steps if you plan on wearing makeup on a regular basis. Use an exfoliant on your face up to three times a week to remove dead skin, oil and dirt buildup from your skin (sounds delicious, I know - that's why we get rid of it!). In addition to this, use a cleanser every day to wash your face. But, perhaps the most important step of all is to moisturize! It will help restore the moisture to your face after you wash it, as washing and exfoliating removes your skins natural oils.
