Make-up myths

Make-up myths

1. Make-up doesn’t expire

Believe it or not, different make-up products have different expiration dates. So, if you have been using the same mascara for over a year, it’s definitely time to throw it out.

2. You only need one particular shade of foundation throughout the year

Don’t be that girl who walks around with a face that doesn’t match her neck. Whether you spend a lot of time in the sun or not, your skin will either become darker or lighter, depending on what time of the year it is.

3. Make-up causes breakouts

Applying make-up without cleaning your face first, forgetting to remove your make-up and neglecting washing your make-up brushes and sponges cause breakouts.

4. Apply concealer before foundation for better coverage

By applying foundation before concealer you will actually cover more of your blemish/problem areas.

5. Not everyone can wear red lipstick

Fortunately for those of you who actually believe this make-up myth, red lipstick, just like any other colour of lipstick, is available in a variety of shades. Anyone can wear red lipstick. You just need to find the right shade of red that works for you.
