Do’s and Don’ts Make-up Edition

Here are some quick make-up do’s and don’ts to avoid those make-up no no’s and to boost your everyday make-up routine 🙂

-Do slightly wet your Eyeshadows to increase intensity of colour (experiment with this, as some shadows work better than others).

-Don’t keep make-up in hot areas, it will cause lipsticks to melt and foundations to change colour and separate.

-Do make sure you test make-up before purchasing.

-Don’t use eye drops that are whitening for more than one or two days, these drops have bleach in them. This whitens the eyes temporarily but causes them to be even more red once this wears off.

-Do check make-up expiry dates.

-Don’t share mascara with friends, it can spread infections such as conjunctivitis.

-Do use make-up brushes.

-Don’t buy make-up with out checking what it looks like in both natural and unnatural light.

-Do maintain eye brows, rather than waiting for them to grow back. Once you have your perfect shape, tweeze the stray hairs and keep them looking great all the time.

-Don’t over pluck eye brows, it’s better to have more. If in doubt see a professional (check their work first, brows are very subjective).

-Don’t experiment with your make-up before going to something important (aka a first date).

-Do experiment with make-up when you have nowhere important to be, perfect that look before rocking it.

-Don’t use foundation to create a tan.

-Do use a foundation that matches your skin tone and use a mineral powder one or two shades darker to contour and bronze the face. This adds warmth without causing that horrible foundation line.

-Do blend blend blend! This is the difference between a flawless look and an unnatural one.

-Don’t apply a liquid foundation then try and apply a powder blush.

-Do set liquids with translucent powders before trying to apply a powder brush, this will insure it doesn’t catch on the liquid and become patchy and uneven.

-Don’t get caught in a make-up rut, go check out what’s new at counters, read all the beauty trend sections and watch make-up tutorials online.

-Do have fun with make-up, relax and read my blog 😉 xxx
