Flawless Makeup Tips Starts Here Enjoy!
Not Researching a Makeup Product Before Purchasing
There are many resources you should use to make an informed decision before purchasing. Your first resource is Google search. Prospective buyers should always search until they are adequately informed about a makeup product. Your second resource is YouTube.
View some YouTube videos and make sure you read the comments! The YouTube video comment section has been very helpful in helping me decide whether a product is worth researching further. People in the comments section are usually brutally honest. MakeupAlley is also a great website you can use to research products – people are also brutally honest on there as well.
Continue Using Makeup Products That Don’t Work
Did you ever purchase a product and on your first try but it just didn’t work, but you kept using it hoping that it would? I think most of us have been there at some point trying our hardest to make a product work, because of the resources we have already invested.
Instead, Return Makeup Products
The best solution is simply to return the product – doing this creates an opportunity to try new products that might be better suited for your skin type.
Sell Products On Poshmark and Glambot
If you missed the deadline gift or sell the product. Sell used makeup on Poshmark and Glambot. So if the product is not working out, let it be and let it go. Remember a product that works for everyone might not necessarily work for you, so stop being so difficult on yourself, return the bad product and get your money back!
Hoarding expired makeup products
So you purchased this expensive product four years ago, used it once didn’t like it, but kept it anyway because the package looks pretty – does this ring a bell? Now the product is expired, but you still kept it in your makeup drawer filled with other expired products you’re keeping for the same reason. It’s okay, we all have that one product that’s only good for decor.
Using Expired Makeup Products
However, please ensure you are not using these expired products especially if you have problematic skin. If you feel you must because you are not about to let your coins go to waste, research the ingredients to find out if the product could still be used. I found that returning products to the store prior to the return deadline helps control the amount of unused expired products in my drawer, also finishing a product before buying another one helps.
Using Dirty Makeup Brushes and Sponges to Apply Foundation
Quit this habit immediately! Clean makeup tools are required for applying flawless makeup. Additionally, using dirty makeup brushes and sponges is a big no-no especially for individuals who are struggling with acne. So do your skin a huge favor by ensuring your application tools are clean. This, in turn, will lessen the chances of you breaking out.
DIY Solution For Washing Brushes And Makeup Sponges
To date, my best DIY solution for washing my brushes and sponges is a mixture of vinegar and Dawn Ultra dishwashing soap. This mixture is very effective in cleaning both makeup sponges and brushes. If you are not a DIY fan, I’m sure there are plenty of cleansers on the market that would get the job done. Additionally, if you want a flawless application, your tools must be clean. Clean makeup sponges and brushes will help you apply and blend your foundation easier and quicker.
Not Using a Moisturizer Will Not Help You Get Flawless Makeup Look
No matter how oily you are skipping moisturizer is not an option. Moisturizing before applying makeup helps the foundation adhere to the skin better. It also allows you to blend the foundation better and use more powder without creating a “cakeface”.
