Once you enter a beauty store, you look at the products in awe and use lipsticks and eye make-up products which come with “try me” tag. But before you indulge in trying and testing beauty products, you should be aware of certain rules.
Here’s a list of make-up counter rules to follow with hygiene uppermost in mind, reports huffingtonpost.com:
* After you walk in and take a look at the beauty landscape in total awe, make sure to close your mouth at some point.
* When you find the lipstick section and feel like you need to try all shades of red, stop yourself from doing it. Don’t apply lipstick directly from the tube.
For flawless make-up, moisturise your skin well before applying the products and use fixtures to get a refreshed look.
Here are some tips by make-up artist Kanikka Gauraav Tandon for keeping your make-up perfect always:
* Moisturise: Moisturise your skin before applying make-up, but be sure that the moisturiser is oil-free to make the make-up stick to its place. Besides that, use a primer. Go for mineral powder foundation which works great for oily skin. Apply it with foundation applicator brush.
* Eyes: Before applying eyeliner to your bottom lashes, dust a brush over some baby powder and apply it on the lower lash line which will soak the extra moisture from the area, making it easier for the eyeliner to stay in place for longer. Also, avoid putting eye cream directly on your lids and apply primer specifically made for your eyes.
* Lips: Try to get rid of extra skin from your lips with the help of sugar scrub. Apply foundation to your lips to make your lipstick last longer. Line and fill the lip with neutral lip pencil. Apply one coat of lipstick and then blot, and finish with a light layer lip gloss.
* Blush: Use powdered blush-on in natural earthy shades or apply the blush on in a dotted format on your cheeks and rub it gently with your ring finger. They are also known as flushed cheeks. For blush-on, you can use colours like ruby, strawberry, orchid lilac colours.
* Refresh your make-up: Fixtures are generally used to give your make-up a refreshed look. It is basically a misty spray which is sprayed on the face. After spraying it let it settle for approximately six to seven seconds. Get ready with a fresh face on a hot and sweaty day. (Bollywood Country)
