Rule #1 : Do not forget to prep your skin before make up. If you don't prep your skin with moisturizer or base cream before you apply the foundation, you are doing it wrong and helping the make up to get in the micro pores on you Skin. This can dry your skin and cause breakout.
Solution: Take some moisturizer and apply evenly all over your face, neck, and along your hairline with clean hands. Wait 3-5 minutes and then start applying make up.
