These secrets also include makeup hacks and tricks to keep your makeup intact throughout the day.
Here are a few of these beauty secrets that every girl must know. These basic hacks will have you looking beautiful in no time.
Do not store your makeup in the bathroom
A lot of women make this mistake because it is a convenient spot to do your makeup. Right after you brush your teeth, you can just do your face and you’re good to go. The problem is that the warm temperature and high humidity in the bathroom can damage your cosmetic products. These will cause your makeup to expire more quickly. It is more ideal to store your makeup in a room with steady temperature, such as the bedroom.
Store your serums in the fridge
There are a few serums and creams that you might not use frequently. I bet they cost a fortune, too. These products should be stored in a refrigerator. This will lengthen their shelf life. The cold temperature can also reduce any puffiness on your face. Limit your products to creams and serums. Do not put other liquid products such as eyeliner, foundation, or mascara in the fridge.
Clean the things that touch your face
Did you know that most phones are said to contain more bacteria than a public toilet seat? And if you’re one of those people who sleep with their phones nearby, you might want to clean your phone. Use an antiseptic to periodically clean your phone’s surface. Wash the things that your face makes contact with. These include bed sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The accumulated dirt can clog up your pores and make you breakout.
Don’t exfoliate when you have acne
It is normal to panic when you see an acne. You might feel the desire to try every product on your skin care routine. However, it is important to avoid exfoliating your skin. This process can increase the inflammation and worsen the irritation on your face. You may resume exfoliating once there are no more acne in sight. You might want to stick with spot treatments in the meantime.
Brown liner instead of a black one
Do you want to enhance your eyes but you feel like the black liner is too much? Try using a brown liner instead! The brown shade looks more natural and less noticeable. It still does the job of directing attention to your eyes and making your pupils pop.
