Us girls love our make-up, we’ve spent years perfecting it, but sometimes, we can get it wrong.
Are you guilty of any of these?
Applying make-up on dry and flaky skin
The mistake: Looked in the mirror, noticed the dry and flaky scratch and proceeded to slather on the foundation when actually, foundation only emphasises the flakes by resting on top of them instead of blending in with the rest of your skin.
How to fix it: We’ve been told it, have read about it and seen it on the telly, but most of us fail to do it – exfoliating your skin regularly. Exfoliating really does get rid of those flakes, and following that up with a rich moisturiser means you’ll have silky smooth skin again in no time.
Smooth skin = smooth application.
The mistake: Applying several coats of mascara to give your eyelashes thickness and volume. Sometimes, we end up with spider eyelashes which can draw attention for all the wrong reasons. Think Kim Kardashian.
How to fix it: Like you would determine the strength and thickness of your hair, you need to do the same for your eyelashes. Only apply two coats of mascara and use something that will help build your lashes gradually.
The mistake: Allowing your blush brush to become damp and tangled which leads to blush streaks,
How to fix it: Your brush should be soft rounded for perfect blendability. Clean them often to avoid stains, and allow to dry naturally to avoid further damage. If your brush is beyond a wash, throw it away and buy a new one.
Sleeping in Your Make-Up
The mistake: It happens to the best of us, climbing into bed without removing your make-up.
How to fix it: Leaving your make-up on can lead to clogged spores and spots, as well as staining on your pillow case. Invest in some 2 or 3 in 1 wipes and wipe away the day’s make-up. It will only keep you awake an extra minute and your skin will thank you for it.
