Friday Five

In the world of beauty there are an endless amount of beauty tips and rules to follow.  Over the years, I have learned a thing or two about some very important beauty tips from my mom (I should have listened to her sooner), make-up artists, friends, and my short career in a cosmetics department (I do miss the free make-up).

Today, I’m going to share with you my five favorite beauty tips that I follow daily! And if you’re not doing these things you should!

  1. Always remove your make-up before going to bed and apply a night cream no matter how tired you are.
  2. Make sure to exfoliate your lips prior to applying lipstick.  Doing so will make your lips look more plump and help your lipstick stay on longer.
  3. Never pump your mascara & get a new one every 3 months!  The only thing it does is dry out your mascara!
  4. Clean your make-up brushes and sponges once a week.  Swirl the brushes around in warm water and a mild soap. This helps to fight against potential bacteria and breakouts.
  5. Always wear a sunscreen!

And now for five make-up trends I won’t be doing…EVER!

  1. Adding faux freckle, this trend is just plain crazy.  I just don’t get it.  The girls I have seen it on just looks horrible and their skin looks dirty.
  2. Wearing Unicorn make-up.  These women paint their faces pink and glittery, great for Halloween, but not for daily life.
  3. Noticeable contouring.  Make-up needs to enhance the beauty each person has.  The beauty of the face needs to stand out not the make-up.
  4. Over spray-tanned skin.  If you are looking like a Oompa Loompa you’ve gone too far with the spray tan.
  5. Overly thin or thick eyebrows.  Eyebrows are to enhance the eye not over power them.

What is your favorite beauty tip?  What beauty trend would you never do?

Until Next Time…

XOXO
