First of all clean skin makes for a great palette. Don’t forget every great makeup application starts with an awesome face primer.
Foundation is one of the trickiest makeup products to use properly. While it can give you flawless skin that makes you look younger and fresher, applying it incorrectly can have the exact opposite effect. So try to avoid common mistakes — your face! will thank you.
Before buying a foundation, it’s important to determine which type your skin actually needs. Have an oily complexion? It’s important to use noncomedogenic (i.e. pore-clogging), oil-free and oil-absorbing formulas (for reference, here’s a list of Devezin Beauty-approved foundations for oily skin). If you have sensitive skin, look for mineral-based formulas that are free of dyes, fragrances, and preservatives that could be irritating. If your skin is dry, pick a creamy, moisturizing foundation that keeps your face hydrated. If you’re applying full-face foundation, be sure to blend down your neck, as it tends to be a little lighter than your face. Tip: Use a brush or sponge to smooth your foundation onto your face first, then from the jawline down your neck.
Too much makeup? No problem! Round up all of your beauty bags and designate each one to a different category: brushes, foundations, shadows, blush and bronzer. See if you don’t feel like a new woman when your little makeup project is done!
Well it’s time to get it together. Fall-prep aside, now is the time for you to get organized. You and your skin deserve it. It’s time to toss the cracked eye-shadow, the multiple tubes of mascara and that lipstick you loved from two years ago. It’s time for a makeup overhaul.
Be honest: your makeup storage is kind of horrific. Use these easy tricks to help your must have products find a proper home at last.
