3 MAKEUP MYTHS THAT ARE ACTUALLY FAKE!

3 MAKEUP MYTHS THAT ARE ACTUALLY FAKE

While we access all the information from the internet and social media and find ways to believe in everything available, we almost forget how the same information can misguide us. A self-proclaimed makeup artist might have told you to use concealer or BB cream before applying foundation, but have you ever had a second thought about that? Sometimes what may work for one person might not be the ideal routine for the other. We are all unique in our body chemistry, skin types, color tones. It is time for you to pay more attention these “heard beliefs” 😉

Here are some of the makeup myths that we have fallen victims to, let’s have a look at a self-proclaimed makeup artist’s advice and see if it works or not.

APPLY CONCEALER BEFORE FOUNDATION:

It certainly is a not s great idea to use concealer before applying foundation. You need to apply your foundation first to even out your skin tone and if it did not cover out minor imperfections on your face, then use a concealer after foundation, that will cover all of it and you are good to go. If you do not want your face to look patchy and rough throughout the day, always consider applying concealer after foundation.

If you are worried about dark circles or dull skin showing through, consider using a color corrector before a foundation.

EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS ARE MORE PREFERABLE:

You can find a decent and a bad product anywhere in any drugstore in all price ranges. It is not necessary that an expensive product will give you accurate results and not an affordable priced product. Surprisingly, providers of Sephora products in Pakistan allows and gives its customer an opportunity to test samples before making purchase and if you are able to avail this opportunity, do not have a second thought about the price tag.

Test the products and if they fit your viewpoint, buy them. No matter how inexpensive or expensive.

WATERPROOF MASCARA OVER REGULAR MASCARA:

I preferably think using a waterproof mascara on a daily basis is damaging to your eyelashes since it lasts longer and is not easy to get off, it also feels heavy. Its formula is entirely different than that of a regular mascara and is not supposed to be used on a day to day occasion. When you want to properly remove it off your eyes, it will get hard and you can pull off your lashes in the process as well. Sleeping with your waterproof mascara on can make your lashes stiff and it causes infections. Speaking of some drugstores that offer the best beautifying regular mascara’s for your convenience, Clinique products in Pakistan stands out among a few other brands and its High Impact mascara beats the maximum sales which shows how much attention and interest ladies pay on this product.

It gives a really over-whelming result and is perfect to keep your eyes safe and your lashes to look extraordinarily beautiful.

Busting these makeup myths will solve half of your problems and will save you from drastic end-results. You definitely need to take good care of your skin, face and other feature to keep a lit look alive and for that, you obviously need to follow the right advices, products and be sure of how to make use of them and that will get you to places.

NYX CONCEAL, CORRECT, CONTOUR PALETTE

nyx conceal correct contour 1 just4girls.pk

To conceal, correct and contour, use the NYX color-match correcting palette for a glamorous look. With its 6 flattering shades in the palette, you can cover up imperfections, redness and even out your complexion in a go that will bring out the best of your features.

For an ideal tone, use the shades either separately or combine them together. The product comes in three shades for light, medium and dark skin tones.
Only a few people are blessed with clear and light skin tone. For the rest of us, it is an everyday struggle to have a flawless and smooth skin by using just two or three products, or a foundation and concealer for a completely even. flawless finish. Although using a foundation can provide even coverage to our skin, the imperfections, dark circles and dull skin may need more work to be covered completely.

This product offered by NYX is handy to cancel out the dark spots and even out our skin tone, as well as contour and finish with chiseled features! For a little while, NYX has been my favorite drugstore brand to use, and it is quite inexpensive to experience as well. I have been very excited to use the 6-shade palette.
PACKAGING:
The packaging of a product is vital to me regardless of its price. I love how the palette comes with a strong packaging and is not likely to break. It is well-made, shuts quickly and is very travel-friendly because of its little plastic container. NYX sure has done an excellent job with the product’s packaging.
SHADES ARRANGEMENT:
The bottom shades in the palette are definitely for correcting because the bottom left shade has a green undertone and the bottom right is a little peachy. The middle rows right side shade in the palette is a dark color, so I believe it is for contouring. The rest three shades looked quite similar when I swatched them on my skin.

CONSISTENCY:
The consistency of this product’s shades is very thick. One can use her fingers to apply this shade since they feel waxy. Hence, a little extra effort is required to smoothe it out. You can also use a Beauty Blender for blending out these shades but refrain from using a Foundation Brush.
SHADES USAGE:
The shade that is used for contouring is a little light if you have a tan skin tone, I would recommend you to overuse it for a perfect blend out and even-out jawline. The peachy shade in the palette works best for covering up your eye bags; I have had an amazing experience with the peach shade because it gives a smooth coverage under my eyes and it is yet the best way to hide your sleepiness. The green shade works best for covering the red areas or if you have acne on your face.
CONCLUSION:
The shades arrangement in the palette is quite eye-catching. I use the contour shade to contour my nose and cheekbones while the concealing shade gives a smooth texture. Overall, this 6-shade palette has done its magic on me, and it had lasted all day. It wore very well without fading and lifting. It didn’t crease at all or turned into fine lines so, for beginners, it is the best kit for concealing and contouring. I am excited to try out the rest two shades that it comes with.
