There is nothing dreadful when it comes to makeup like having your face oily and the makeup melt off before midday. It is extremely catastrophic as you cannot wipe it off because it will cause a smudge that you wouldn’t want the world to see and the fact that the makeup of the lady next to you is still fresh adds more salt to the wound. Today we are giving you the top secrets on how to have that fresh from the shower look. Check the four magic tips below.
Beauty sleep is not a myth and sleep does lessen the severity of wrinkles in the face and neck. Having enough sleep clears away the bags from under your eyes therefore you will not have to go patching the bags with concealer that will not compliment your makeup look. Therefore beauty sleep helps in the revitalizing of the skin with its natural look.
Moisturizing skin is an essential step in the entire make up process. One would think that if you have an oily skin, this step should be skipped entirely but that isn’t the case. Moisturizing is entirely different from greasing so if you have an oily skin, try out the water based moisturizers which will help you not wear the makeup.
