The "clean" makeup trend has been making its way through practically everyone’s TikTok and Instagram feeds. Its appeal? A beauty routine that uses only the essentials, while still leaving you with a beautiful yet effortless glow.
Aside from the makeup itself, though, it's important to prep your skin beforehand. Not only does it give your makeup the best base, but it also protects our skin underneath. So when our favorite beauty influencers gave us an inside look on how they achieve their version of the "clean" look, we took notes on the skincare they used so you too can get that flawless base!
