Most women depend on makeup to cover up or substitute a daily healthy routine. Using makeup is not a shortcut to the right look or a healthy lifestyle.
In fact, if you use excessive makeup to cover up the tired lines under your eyes, or the blemishes on your skin, you end up with an unnatural look, which can be quite off-putting.
There are habits that you should develop until they become part of a healthy lifestyle. Make sure you drink enough water and eat right. A diet made up mostly of fruits and vegetables gives you a clear healthy skin. It keeps fines lines and spots away.
Do you find that you feel tired all the time? You need to carry out some exercises to alleviate this. When you are tired, it shows in your eyes. They may look red, and fatigue lines might develop around them. The way to negate this is to exercise at least twice in a week.
Know Your Skin Type
A person who has an oily skin should use different products from one whose skin is dry. Most beauty stores or qualified dermatologists can do a test to find out what skin type you have.
This will also guide you when you decide to start using makeup. You will be in a good position to choose the right products. Foundation, for example, is designed for different skin types.
Wash and Cleanse
Before you begin using makeup, you should make sure that you clean your skin well. If you do not do this, your beauty products will trap the dirt on your skin, causing spots and blackheads.
Wash your face using lukewarm water. If your skin is sensitive and reacts easily to different products, ensure that you also get a professional opinion on the right cleanser to use. After you wash your face, apply the toner, then moisturize.
Apply the Makeups
Remember, using makeup should always serve to bring out your best features, as it gives you a polished professional look which keeps you feeling confident. If you use too much, it exaggerates your features.
