Even in ancient times, women, in order to mask the imperfections of their faces or to emphasize their beauty, resorted to various natural remedies. Nowadays, these manipulations have come to be called makeup and, as a rule, many misconceptions have appeared about how to apply makeup correctly and whether it should be applied at all. Let's consider some of the most common myths on this topic.
Red lipstick is the prerogative of vulgar, shameless women. In fact, if it is applied correctly and to the place, there will be nothing vulgar in such lipstick. On the contrary, it will highlight the flawless lip line and draw attention to the snow-white smile.
Frequent use of lipstick can adversely affect the natural color of the lips (become faded). In reality, the fact that the lips lose their bright color is influenced by age. Usually, this phenomenon manifests itself to someone well over thirty, after all, it takes its age.
If you apply cosmetics every day, the skin will age quite quickly. Fortunately, this is just a myth. Now almost all cosmetic companies produce products, the main task of which is to moisturize and protect the skin from external factors. Therefore, the skin retains its youth and beauty for a long time.
If you use expensive cosmetics, then the makeup will be great. However, no matter how much the cosmetic products cost, if you are unable to use them, even a high price will not be able to help.
You should always use only one brand of the cosmetic company. This is not entirely true. Over the years, the structure of the skin may change, and with the constant use of the same product, the skin will become addicted to this cosmetics and, as a result, it will no longer give the same results as before. In addition, in the cosmetic market, products are constantly appearing that are superior in composition and action to their previous predecessors. Therefore, it is recommended to refer to new products more often and not be afraid to experiment.
The foundation is visible on the skin and is therefore best avoided. Alas, many people think so. Again, if the right color is chosen and the cream is skillfully applied, then this tool will only make the face attractive.
The foundation is created in order to hide all skin imperfections with it. This is far from the truth. The foundation can only even out the skin tone and give it a refreshed look. And to hide, for example, acne, in this way it will not be possible, since they will still be visible. If, nevertheless, it is possible to "plaster" the place with this "little annoyance", then the foundation will appear quite clearly on the face.
To preserve your youth up to 35 years old, you need to use a foundation. In order to hide minor skin imperfections, women use a foundation. But it actually ages your skin. When you apply the cream on your face, it gets into the pores of the skin and fine wrinkles, which entails the deepening of the wrinkles that have already appeared, and if the tone is incorrectly matched to your type and complexion, you may get the impression that you have a mask on your face. Using a simple powder will give your face a natural and more natural look. To prevent premature skin aging, take care of it from a young age.
There is no point in plucking your eyebrows, they will grow back anyway. Why then wash, brush your teeth? Sometimes uncorrected eyebrows can ruin the entire makeup. Therefore, makeup artists strongly recommend paying attention to them when applying makeup.
You do not need to use foundation if there are no pimples on your face. Few people have perfect skin. Most of us have some kind of problems associated with the skin, whether it is acne, large pores or age spots. All of the above prevents you from making even and beautiful makeup. Before applying makeup, the face should be cleansed, the skin is even. And to achieve good makeup, you need to use a foundation as a foundation. The applied base serves for further even application of blush and eyeshadow.
When using foundation, your skin will look like parchment paper. Modern foundations include elements that can retain moisture on the skin's surface. For this, calendula and chamomile extract, aloe vera gel are most often used. All these plants are able to quickly heal microcracks, because the regenerative function is activated with sufficient moisture.
Powder and foundation clog pores. Microfibers, which are included in most modern creams - powders, create an elastic mesh on the skin that allows air to pass freely, thereby allowing the pores to breathe freely, and at the same time protects the skin from external irritants. And the size of these particles is so small that clogging of the pores is impossible.
Using foundation, you age your skin. Dermatologists decided to conduct a study and recruited two groups of women, some using foundation, others not.
