The Dos and Don’ts of Beauty

5 Jan

The world of cosmetics is like a bowl of delicious chocolate saying, “I’m here waiting for you to indulge!” Like chocolate, beauty products are always going to be an indulgence we love to partake in to lift our spirits, and also give us that instant gratification feeling. The trick is to know what products will work best for you and how to use them properly. Cosmetics don’t come with a “how to” guide, it’s up to you to figure out what works and put your artistic spin on it. We put together a list of important and helpful tips that will enhance your beauty and prevent you from making mistakes.

Do it, honey!

  • Do wear sunscreen EVERY day, even if you work indoors. Use a moisturizer with anti-oxidants and sunscreen to keep even artificial light from causing premature aging.
  • Do carry a small powder brush to touch up your makeup during the day. The sponge in your compact can hold the oil from your skin and cause breakouts.
  • Do always apply perfume behind the knees, inside the elbows, and behind the ears. These areas are more likely to warm up to the fragrance and give a subtle scent instead of overpowering.
  • Do buff natural nails with a rough buffing pad before applying polish. It will create an oil free bed perfect for keeping polish on at least five days.
  • Do apply eyelash primer before applying mascara. Primers condition and create a fuller and longer look for your eyelashes, plus it helps keep it on longer.

Don’t you dare, sugar!

  • Don’t go to sleep without washing your face and moisturizing.
  • Don’t use foundation around your eyes. Use concealer instead. Foundation can irritate the eye area, and is not ophthalmologist tested.
  • Don’t let your mascara go past three months! Mascara is made to last a maximum of two months and loses the ability to do its job, and can cause irritation.
  • Don’t lend your eye makeup products to anyone, doing so can lead to infections. Sharing is not always caring when it comes to makeup.
  • Don’t go longer than six months without a haircut! Your hair with split at the ends and break, making it seem to never grow at all.

Now you can get the best of your beauty splurges and be an even more vibrant and beautiful you! What are your dos and don’ts? Leave a comment and let us know!
