10 Fun Fact Beauty Tips

Posted on Jul 22 2013 - 11:00am by Pamela Ray

What girl doesn’t love make up?! Here are 10 tips about make up you haven’t heard!

Mascara only has a shelf life for about 2-3 months! Once it starts to get clumpy you should toss it.

Never share eye makeup! It’s a very easy way to spread germs and things like pink eye can be very contagious and spread quickly via make-up! Things like lipstick/lip gloss can easily spread cold sores (or other ICKY diseases!).

Lotion can be good for up to 2 years if stored properly! Keep upright, don’t let it sit in direct sunlight. If it starts to smell funky or lose it’s color, give it a toss! Lipstick also has a 2 year shelf life. Perfume can sit around for 8-10 years before it will possibly start to be funky!

That crackling sound your hair makes when you brush it, yeah, that’s your hair breaking! Try brushing hair when wet or using a leave in conditioner to avoid breakage!

They make nail polish thinner that makes old goopey (or cheap!) nail polish easier to use. Don’t apply too much or you could ruin the consistency of the polish.

If you travel, when you wash your face use bottled water. The water in countries outside your home are different and may irritate your skin if you aren’t already used to it.

The old myth about putting toothpaste on pimples, yea don’t. It’s too harsh for your skin and it can actually irritate your face making your blemish even bigger! Avoid touching blemishes as the natural oils in your hands will encourage them to grow.

You can extend the self life of your foundation by actually putting it into your fridge. It will help prevent the drying out process that often kills foundation.

Using olive oil on your eyebrows will help hold the shape you’re wanting on them and promote growth. Make sure to apply lightly and brush over your skin with powder to avoid looking greasy.

Chances are your products have more than one use: use clear mascara around the lips to prevent your lipstick from bleeding. Use foundation on your lips to create evenness before applying your lip color.
