Make Up Bag Essentials

Get The Must Have Items For Your Makeup Bag


Knowing what products you need to have in your makeup bag to take along with you can be hard to figure out. It is always nice to carry around some makeup with you throughout your day so you can do some touch ups. This article in my beauty tips series will give you an idea of what the best things to carry with you are!
The idea that natural moisturizers are better than commercial ones is a matter of opinion. Sometimes a woman might want to use a natural moisturizer simply because of her social and ecological ideals. The answer to this question is that both can be good for your skin. And some might have features that others do not. For example, although vitamin E may be very good for your skin it does not contain sunscreen that can protect your skin from harmful sun rays! This is true of all natural moisturizers.
Not everyone thinks that makeup primers are an essential part of a makeup routine. They do fill in fine lines around the mouth and eyes or anywhere you may have them. Sometimes they help makeup stay longer, but it is an extra step and can oftentimes make your skin feel weighed down. It is something you can consider using in the morning but it shouldn’t be a product that you need to use through the day.
You should always look for sunscreen in your foundations. It is the most important ingredient as it will protect your skin from harmful sun rays. You should use foundations that are meant for you skin type as well. You should never use moisturizer in your foundation if your skin is oily for example.
There is no reason you have to use different concealers for different skin issues. Just look for one that is an all around concealer made for under the eyes and blemishes as well.
Not everyone needs powder every day but it does help your foundation, concealer, and primer last longer through the day. Avoid using it too much as it will weigh down your face and perhaps make your face look like it has too much makeup on it.
When you are buying lipstick, lip gloss, or chapstick look for one that works for you and perhaps has a little tint to it. Buy colors you know you will wear and that are proper for your every day routine. You can save the brighter colors for night time wear.
You should rinse out your mascara brush every once in awhile and also change (or wash out) your eye shadow brushes. You do not want bacteria getting into the make up and giving you an eye infection!
A nice thing to take a long with you are face wipes, if you buy face wipes that are gentle. These are good for your skin and might also contain moisturizer that will help you. They can be purchased without moisturizer, so the face wipes will be best with oily skin.
This article should have given you an idea of what you might or might not need to carry along with you in your makeup bag. There is no need to drag along products you do not need all day!

Beauty tips That Work For All Ages

If you’re a woman, as you get older, you might think you have to change your beauty regimen to suit your changing skin. The truth is that there are a lot of classic looks and a lot of things you can do to maintain an easy makeup routine that doesn’t have to take too much time or become annoying. Here are some great tips for women of all ages.

1. Choose sheer lipsticks. Now, there are a lot of people who say that you should avoid lipstick altogether, but that is simply not necessary. The trick is to apply it with a light hand and a sheer lipstick. Creamy lipsticks look heavy and if you are getting older, can call attention to the fine lines around the mouth. Stick to sheer sticks that gloss the lip slightly.

2. If you have fine lines and use powder foundation, avoid powdering the areas where the lines are concentrated. Powder tends to settle in fine lines, making them seem more pronounced. Women use powder for the matte finish, but there are some cream foundations to experiment with, that may give you the same matte kind of finish you like.

3. Be careful with blush. Every few years the rules for blush change. However, it is consistent that blush should be applied very lightly until you reach the perfect amount. Take care to be precise about where you are applying it, and you will look lovely without looking as if someone squeezed your cheeks too hard.

4. Use mascara on your top lashes only. As you get older, the skin around the eyes starts to behave strangely. It seems to get thinner and begins to crepe. To combat this, you need to make your eyes look beautiful with liner and mascara. However, mascara on the bottom and top lashes looks garish these days, and only contributes to an overdone look. Stick to top lids only.

5.Groom eyebrows well. So many women think that maintenance means plucking beyond what is necessary. You want to maintain your eyebrows, not decimate them! Think of all the women who have fuller eyebrows, such as Jennifer Connelly. Lush, well groomed eyebrows can look very healthy, while thin, over-plucked brows scream Tallulah Bankhead, which is probably not the look you want.

6. Take care of your health. So often, people forget about simple things like rest, water, and diet. But the truth is that your skin is an organ like your heart and your lungs, so you need to take care of it in just the same way. The skin in your face needs to be hydrated, nourished and rested in order to look its best. Learn more about intermittent fasting in order to give your body a break.

These tips provide you with a strong foundation for looking good at any age. Just take the time to look after yourself, and you will start to see a dramatic improvement in both your inner and outer beauty. Use these tips to lay down the foundation for beauty that is there for your entire life.
