You may be using beauty products wrong without even knowing. A beauty practice is often inherited. Many young women see their sisters or mother applying makeup and they learn the practices that they will use for the rest of their lives. Whether you will admit it or not, some parts of your beauty routine have been greatly influenced by a relative or friend that might not really know what they are doing.
How to know if you’re using beauty products wrong:
#1 Highlighters/Concealer Pens
Many different products have concealing properties. Highlighters or concealing pens are often the most misused product, when you should really use is a creamy concealer. Highlighters and pens are sometimes wrongly used in order to cover redness and blemishes and actually end up drawing more attention to the affected area. Instead, highlighters and concealer pens are a better idea for handling dark under-eye circles as long as they work with your skin tone.
#2 Spot Treatments
If you’re not used to having pimples or acne, a very simple blemish can put you in panic mode. Spot treatments are not meant for long-term use and certainly aren’t meant to be placed all over your face. A lot of woman with very small problem areas are already using spot treatments or acne cleaners. In order to prevent these cases from happening, you need to consult a professional.
#3 Eyelash Curlers
You need to understand that not all eyelash curlers are similar. If you happen to use wrong curler or apply too much pressure to your eye, you can damage your lashes and this can eventually lead to them falling out. When using beauty eyelash curlers, apply pressure in short bursts rather than with a big squeeze. When buying an eye curler, you should look carefully at your eye shape and compare it to the curler. Keep in mind that buying a popular eyelash brand doesn’t automatically mean that it is right for you.
A lot of women misunderstand the real purpose of using foundation. It’s not there to provide you an instant tan or to cover your pimples or acne—foundation is there to balance or even out your skin tone. If you have pimples, foundation can be your first beauty step to having a full coverage. However, many women go wrong by using more foundation than what they really need. Most women can get away with using a tinted moisturizer or a sheer foundation because the texture of their skin is naturally good.
Using contour can make or break your appearance. Specially if you have a fuller-cheek baby face, but wrong application of the product, or using it in wrong color, can be very obvious. Before buying one, make sure that it complements your skin tone and you know how to apply it properly.
