These days anyone can look good with the right set of products and accessories. On one side we have costly medical procedures, and on the other we have more affordable beauty products that can sometimes work just as well.
Unfortunately, many of us end up making beauty mistakes that don’t accentuate our natural beauty and end up ruining our look.
To help you avoid common beauty mistakes, here are five tips to get you started:
Go Easy on the Make Up
Painting layers of makeup, tinted cream, concealer, and powder all over your face can make your face look overdone. ‘The more the merrier’ isn’t always the mantra that you should use. Save the heavy makeup for your next night out and let your skin breathe during the week with a lighter application. Naked themes are in. Cakey is out. Put on a lightweight foundation, remove any excessive makeup with a sponge, and apply concealer to cover any imperfections or redness.
You Could Be Washing Your Hair the Wrong Way
Your hair can be very tempremental and needs special care. Have you thought about the following…
How often do you shampoo your hair? Overwashing can lead to dry hair as it inhibits the natural ability to produce oil. Use products which don’t contain harsh ingredients to avoid breakage. How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type and the products you use to style.
The way you dry your hair matters. Do not use a towel straight after you come out of the shower. Instead, use your hands to squeeze out any additional water, then slowly pat dry your hair. If you use a hairdryer make sure you use a product which protects against the heat first.
No Falling Asleep With Makeup On
Sleeping with makeup on is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Speak to any beauty expert, and they will tell you about the consequences of doing so. When you let your makeup rest on your face for too long, it starts to damage your skin and clog those pores. As a result, you may see a breakout or skin irritation, which can feel uncomfortable.
Removing makeup is considered a pain by many, but it is very important to make the effort, if you want your skin to look fresh and healthy.
You’re Washing Your Face Too Frequently
Washing your face once in the morning and once at night is enough to clean off the dirt on your face. Unless you’re working out or sweating a lot, there’s no reason to wash your face with a full-on cleanser and water routine any more than that.
Washing your face too frequently has its own side effects, especially when using a strong face wash. When your washing is working a little too well, in addition to removing the dirt from your skin it will also remove those natural oils. This may cause your skin to “freak out” and produce more oil to compensate. The result? Oily skin!
Stop Avoiding Accessories
Do not be the person who avoids accessories. Go to a store like PearlsOnly and pick accessories to add flair to your overall look. You should experiment with your style, it is fun!
