Hello, my name is Nancy Paterra, and I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles. We are going to discuss skin care. It's very important to have a good cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. With my client here today we've discussed her skin. She has combination skin which usually entails dryness in certain areas. And oil in the T zone. But sometimes you can have a little dryness in the T zone too. So we are just going to dress her as a combination skin. For basic skin care you are going to need a cleanser which her skin is already cleansed. A toner, moisturizer for combination skin type. And then I'm going to something that evens out skin tone and it has a matte finish so it's going to help control her oil in her T zone and help her makeup to stay on longer. Put your toner on a cotton pad. Always use a 100 percent cotton and just go over the skin after cleansing. This is like the rinse cycle of your wash. It also sets up the pH balance of the skin. Take your moisturizer, take a pea sized amount like that. Place it on the fingertips, warm it up. And go all over the entire face. Okay and because she has a little bit of oil in her T zone I'm going to use a matte product that will control oil, keep shine down. Keep her makeup looking fresher longer. And I'm placing it just right in the T zone area. Okay and to review. Dress your skin as to whether it's dry, oily, or combination. Today we worked with a combination skin. If you are dry definitely use a cream cleanser. Today Vanessa is combination so a foaming cleanser or a soap is much better. A toner with a cotton pad afterward. Moisturizer to hydrate and protect the skin. And then a mattifying product to keep that oil control in the T zone. Thank you.
