Surprising Make-up Myths Debunked

Make-up products

#Myth 1

Make-up products do not expire


Umm, Totally False! Be it living or non-living everything has a shelf life of its own, and make-up essentials are no exception. As soon as you open the product, the shelf life for the product begins ticking back. Just flip the product and you will find the exact expiry date that the manufacturers have already mentioned. Using an expired product, can not only cause allergies and rashes but also lead to permanent damage.

#Myth 2

It is not necessary to remove your makeup before going off to bed


Erroneous! Unlike what is shown in majority Tv soaps, it is crucial to remove every layer of make-up before hitting the shacks. Leftover product residue can not only plug up the skin pores but also interfere in the skin rejuvenation and moisturising process that chiefly takes place during the night when one sleeps.

#Myth 3

Vibrant colourful makeup is only for women with a fair skin tone


Well, this is absolutely untrue. From a bright lip shade on your lips, a pop of hue on the cheeks, to a vibrant colour on the eyes,  everything can look chic on women of colour, irrespective of their skin tone, if you can carry it with confidence. Don't let anything or anyone stop you from investing in that dynamic red lip shade you always thought of purchasing!

#Myth 4

You can replace your primer with a moisturising cream


Totally Inaccurate! A moisturiser mainly functions by helping keep the skin hydrated and nourished, it doesn’t help much in makeup. Primer on the other hand is the basic step of the make-up and it chiefly helps smooth the skin and allows the foundation to spread evenly on the face. Also, priming a face helps keep the makeup stay put on longer.

#Myth 5:

Opt for a foundation that matches the skin tone of your wrist


A Huge Misconception! Unlike the popular saying, the skin on your wrist doesn’t help you get the exact shade of foundation. If you look closely in the mirror, in reality, every part of your body has a different skin tone and it never exactly matches the skin of the face. Stress, sun exposure, and weather conditions can alter the skin colour on your face more than the rest of the body. To find the ideal foundation shade, it is best to match the foundation hue to your jawline, if it matches there, your quest to find the perfect foundation shade ends there.
