I did go to a dermatologist once, and it did not help at all (I was really turned off by them – I was told my acne would never go away unless I stopped wearing makeup, full-stop – no makeup ever again.) Luckily, my primary care doctor completely resolved my acne issues in a matter of weeks (two prescriptions, clindamycin and Differin). Whenever I meet a makeup artist, I try to ask lots of questions and find out what they like, don’t like, what they’re excited about, what they’re using the most, and if I ever do a makeover, I tell the artist to do what they’d most love to see on my face (I find it gives me the most interesting take).

Thanks to Fran for today's question!

When getting a professional facial, what do you look for?

I like someone who asks questions – like what my concerns are, maybe what kind of products I already use, whether I’ve had a facial before, do I want extractions, etc. I also like someone who seems to understand the skin and may offer knowledge as they apply a certain product or employ a certain technique (like why they’re doing it).
