How to Prep Your Skin for A Big Event

I definitely did not wake up like this... 



I recently read an article where a famous make-up artist said that for runway shows they often spend 20 minutes "prepping" the skin with serums, lotions and oils... and only a few minutes actually applying make-up. While I'm sure their skill at fast makeup application comes into play here, I definitely see the difference in my make-up application when I adequately prep and especially moisturize my skin,

So when I had a big day recently I decided to focus on this 20-minute prep instead of going crazy on my make-up application. The results were amazing. Not only did my skin look velvety and poreless... but it lasted all day! I was blown away.

Best of all - the next day, when I normally pay the price for caking on my make-up, my skin looked even better than it did the previous day. I am going to coin the phrase "skin dividends". I could also see how this would be awesome for the wedding weekends, when there's a brunch on Sunday and I'm too lazy to go all out again but still want to look impressively effortless.
