Why does prepping the skin make or break editorial look? Well, moisturised skin receives makeup better and recedes the effort necessary to execute a flawless application. Pop a sheet mask on your model before starting to work, instruct them (if possible) to do so a night before also, since skin takes up to 8 hours to regenerate. You may also use an oil for added moisture, e.g. Danessa Myricks Beauty oil suitable for oily skin works, as well.
Creating an editorial look a PRO like Danessa picks 99% cream products. The reason for that: this type of product allows for quick correction and results in seamless texture on photos. More so, Danessa recommends working with one main product in different shades to minimize the texture aspect, personally, favors her Vision Cream Foundation, which is created as a concentrate to mix with oils, highlights to suit her work technique. However, you can pick whatever suits you best. So, stock up on cream blush, shadow, highlight and oil, those will be your absolute besties working on this
