Smart Tips And Hacks
41. Follow The Correct Order.
It is important to follow the right order of applying makeup to ensure you get the best finish. Though it is a common practice to start base makeup first, beauty experts suggest that you start with your eyes and brows. In fact, it is also a good idea to do your foundation, concealer, and powder in the end, so that you can easily cover up all the mistakes for an end result that is flawless.
42. Do Your Makeup Under Natural Light.
Try to do your makeup in as much natural light as possible. Makeup looks different under different artificial lights. It is only in natural light that you can understand the real deal.
43. Cool, Warm or Neutral?
Know your color tone. There are basically three tones – warm, cool and neutral, and it is important to know yours to find makeup products that have undertones to suit your color tone. An easy way to tell which tone you are is to check the color of your veins. If you have bluish or purplish veins, you have a cool tone. If they appear green, you have a warm tone, and if you have trouble telling, you are probably of a neutral tone.
44. Walk Into The Mist.
Your makeup is usually incomplete without a dash of your favorite perfume. However, don’t empty the bottle on yourself. If it’s a strong fragrance, instead of directly spraying it, spray it above your head, a little away from your body, and walk into the mist. It will distribute the fragrance evenly and linger on.
45. Make Your Own Palette.
Whether it a concealer palette or an eyeshadow palette, there are always only a few colors that we use. Palettes are usually expensive, so buy refill eyeshadows of the colors you like and set them in an empty box to make your own palette comprising of products you will actually use. It can save you a lot of money as single colors or refills cost way less than palettes.
46. Heat Your Eyelash Curler.
Blow your hair dryer on the eyelash curler before curling your lashes. The heat will help you to get perfectly curled lashes instantly. However, make sure the dryer is on low heat mode and test the temperature on your hand to avoid getting burned.
47. Use Waterproof Products Carefully.
Although water resistant products are good for long wear and stay put, extended exposure to such products can cause harm to your skin. As water resistant products require a lot of rubbing or special products to remove, wear and tear of the protective layer of the skin is highly possible.
48. Rubbing Alcohol Miracle.
The next time your compact, blush or eyeshadow breaks, don’t worry. Just add some rubbing alcohol and hold it in place. Let the alcohol evaporate and say hi to your restored cosmetics.
49. DIY BB Cream.
Mix your own primer, foundation, sunscreen, and compact powder to make your DIY customized BB cream.
50. Sharing Is Not Caring.
It is not hygienic to share makeup items, even with your closest friends. There is a huge chance of infection spreading. Especially refrain from sharing eye and lip products.

Expert’s Answers for Readers Questions
Does wearing makeup damage your skin?
No, makeup normally doesn’t have any major negative effects on the skin, but it depends on the skin of the person. There can be different types of skin reactions due to a common ingredient present in the products. These reactions are most commonly caused by things like fragrances or preservatives present in the makeup products. Following a proper skin care regime every day will help prevent skin damage.
Does makeup cause wrinkles?
The makeup and the environmental pollutants that get accumulated on your skin through the entire day slowly seep into your pores and break the collagen and elastin. This speeds up the aging process and can cause fine lines and wrinkles. This is the reason it is very important to cleanse and moisturize your skin every night before going to bed.
Does makeup make you look older?
No, it doesn’t. In fact, wearing the right products for your skin and using the right techniques to apply makeup will make you look younger and fresher. Less is always more, so use less makeup and wear shades like pinks and corals on the eyes and cheeks to look more youthful.
Does mineral makeup help acne?
Yes, mineral makeup is considered as the best product to use if you have acne as it contains only natural minerals. Also, the benefits it provides are numerous. Mineral makeup does not contain oils, fragrance, and preservatives that cause irritation and aggravate acne. Most of the mineral-based products are non-comedogenic, which means they don’t clog your pores.
