Always Take It Off
No matter how tired and exhausted you are, you should always be taking off your make up! Facial oils are a quick and easy way to remove even the most stubborn eyeliner. If you want a quick and easy way to remove your make up, wipes are a time honoured method, though it seems now they may not be the best for your skin. You have been warned.
Tools of the Trade
If you’re after an airbrushed, professional finish, you should invest in some quality tools. Go into a make up store, talk to a professional artist, and ask for their opinions. They can point you in the direction of a cheaper range that doesn’t compromise quality. They can also give you advice on where to start your collection, what brushes and tools are worth the hype, and which ones to steer clear of.
Spread Your Wings
Make 2017 the year you finally perfect that wing. Try out different products like a gel and brush combination, a felt tip eyeliner, or a dip pot. If you’re determined to get the perfect flick try different methods like using sticky tape as a guideline, or dotting a line before joining them to form the perfect line.
As much as we don’t want to believe it, make up has an expiration date. Make sure to check the packaging and be diligent when tossing products. Bacteria starts to build up in tubes and on pallets and you don’t want that on your face – it will encourage breakouts!
We may joke about beauty sleep, but it’s a real concern. Making sure you get enough hours sleep can be vital to your beauty routine. No amount of concealer or eye roll can cover the fact that you didn’t have good nights sleep! Try relaxing before bed, with a face or hair mask.
