For girls, beauty is an essential component of our daily routine; but there are a slew of rules we need to follow regularly in order to keep up with our hygiene. If you’re breaking these five rules, you might want to correct them if you want to better your beauty routine. You’ll add a little bliss to your life knowing you’re following these cardinal beauty rules.
Matching foundation to the back of your hand:
Most people in the makeup aisle are guilty of this. The results are harsh lines on your neck because you didn’t properly match the shade to your skin. The best place to find your match is on your neck. Even if your neck is lighter than your face, the makeup will all blend naturally.
Sleeping in your makeup:
I don’t know how anyone can sleep in their makeup. If you have continuous breakouts, it could be due to your nighttime routine. Remove makeup with makeup remover wipes, wash your face with a cleanser and apply night moisturizer. No exceptions. Your skin will thank you.
Keeping makeup for too long:
You don’t want to waste a product, but you know that keeping your color foundation from June won’t do any good in October. If it has been a few months since you have last used a product, it’s best to toss it. Old makeup can cause breakouts and buildup in your pores.
Wearing the wrong shade of concealer:
People think you should buy concealer the same shade as your foundation to better hide dark circles, puffiness, etc. However, you should buy concealer two shades lighter when applying under your eyes. This highlights and defines the area without exposing problem areas.
Not cleaning your makeup brushes:
This problem definitely affects your hygiene negatively. Think about it: caking on makeup from the same brush you use daily for months on end isn’t healthy. You should clean your makeup brushes at least once a week to avoid acne or bacteria build up on your skin.
