The Beauty Tips I've Picked Up...

February 09, 2013

I've been blogging for a few years now and along the way I have learnt a huge number of things about the world of beauty. I wanted to share a few of these, so without further ado here are a selection of ones that spring to mind...
  • Never use face wipes on a regular basis as they just don't remove make-up thoroughly. I use them after a night out or when I'm super tired but try to do a proper cleanse at all other times.
  • Filling in your brows makes such a difference to your make-up look.
  • Don't use a foundation with SPF if you are going to be photographed a lot. 
  • A good quality make-up brush (that you take care of) will last years.
  • Never over-exfoliate your skin- using a muslin cloth to remove your cleanser is a gentle way of doing this job.
  • A nail art precision brush is perfect for applying gel eyeliner, and so cheap too.
  • It's OK to use oil cleansers on your face, even if you suffer from oily skin. 
  • It is better to spend more on good skincare, than on expensive make-up products. The 'drugstores' do such a good job these days.
  • Keep your perfumes out of the sun to avoid it 'damaging' the scent.
  • Volumizing sprays and lotions really do work.
  • Mixing two different foundations is generally a winner.
  • Apply glue to false eyelashes and then leave to get tacky before applying. 
  • Never keep unloved make-up and do regular clear-outs- friends and family love a clear-out, and blog sales are a great way of getting some extra cash.
  • Muji win at make-up storage.
  • Magazine beauty pages are nothing compared to beauty blogs and finally...
  • Candles are a beauty bloggers best friend - not really beauty related but I've definitely appreciated candles a lot more since seeing the many blog posts featuring them!

  1. "Don't use a foundation with SPF if you are going to be photographed a lot" -this is so true! I was a bridesmaid at a wedding and the (cheap) make up artist used foundation with SPF and we all looked awful in the pics! Our heads were a different colour to our bodies!
