We want to share 5 important beauty routines that you should stick with to take better care of your skin, hair and makeup routine. Making a manageable list of goals is always easier to stick with.
Invest In Quality Beauty Tools
From makeup sponges, brushes and eye lash curlers- these can all be overlooked. Investing good makeup sponges and throwing out the old can eliminate patchy foundation application and prevent your skin from breaking out.
Makeup brushes are essential for basic application of powder or liquid products. 4 beauty tools every girl should have is a blush brush, eyeshadow brush, foundation brush and eye lash curler. All of the brushes should be soft with dense bristles for seamless makeup application, investing in better quality brushes can allow your makeup to blend into your skin easily and flawlessly.
Cut Out Harmful Chemicals
Chemicals are always found in our skincare and hair care products. Switching to products that cut out harmful chemicals will benefit your health in the long run.
With more hair loss occurrence in women, analyzing what’s in your shampoos and hair styling products will improve your hair greatly. Invest in better skin care products- it’ll be worth the splurge in the long run.
Toss Out Old Makeup
As important as it is to wash your face every night before going to bed, it’s essential to keep your makeup kit free from bacteria. Any product you own that’s been lingering in your stash for too long should be tossed out. Powder products you can keep since they can be cleaned and sanitized. Liquid products, liquid eyeliners and mascara should be thrown away every 8 months to avoid eye infections. Foundations you can keep around 18 months.
Experiment with Daily Makeup
With a mundane daily routine- taking out fun eyeshadow colors and lipstick shades will keep your makeup looking interesting and fun each time around. Sure we can get caught up in the typical natural makeup look but we can end up spending so much on makeup that we can overlook some quality products. Finding what works for you can lead you to a better understanding of your face structure and how to look the best everyday.
Healthy Skin and Hair Routine
Last but not least- a healthier skin and hair routine is a must. This means moisturize more and drink more water. Staying hydrated can make your skin look and feel luminous naturally. A weekly at home facial can also help improve your skin’s texture.
Conditioning your hair with oil or a lightweight leave in conditioner can help prevent thinning of the hair. Applying a nighttime eye cream and face cream will prevent premature wrinkles and dark circles in the long run. Who doesn’t want to end 2014 with flawless skin?
