When it comes to the world of beauty and looking good there is a lot of conflicting information. One trip to YouTube will show you through a variety of different makeup tutorials that there are multiple ways to achieve the same look.
When it comes to beauty secrets there are all kinds of different tricks and techniques, however, there are is a variety of no-no’s that most beauty professionals can agree on. Here are some of the most common beauty mistakes and what you should do instead.
Coloring Your Own Hair
If you were to ask a colorist what they make the most money on in their salon, they will most likely tell you that it is on color correction treatments. Many people choose to color their hair themselves rather than searching for the best salon in their area. There is no comparison to a professional coloring your hair.
Knowing which tones will work with your hair type and color is an actual science. Hair colorists have done extensive studying to achieve their level of knowledge. Therefore, rather than grabbing a box at the supermarket and potentially turning your hair a light shade of purple, consider your hair something that you wear every day. It is worth the extra money to make sure that it is done right, otherwise, you run the risk of spending even more trying to fix it.
Using Drugstore Cosmetics
There are certain cosmetics that just should not be used from a drugstore. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to breakouts, then you should really avoid cheap foundation. The same goes for skincare products.
Mascara and eyeliner are generally something that you can get away with from a drugstore, although there is no comparison to good brands with high-quality ingredients. You will find that the pigment is much brighter, the application is smoother, and the wearing time is much longer.
Shaving Instead of Waxing
Many women choose to shave their legs and bikini zone in order to save some extra money that they would have otherwise spent on waxing. However, waxing not only makes a smooth finish last longer, but your hair will actually grow back less coarsely.
Shaving can lead to skin irritation and hair growing back in greater amounts than before. Shaving cuts the hair off in the middle of the hair growth rather than pulling from the root.
Doing Your Makeup In Artificial Light
If you have ever seen a woman who has makeup that looks like a caked-on drag queen, this is probably because she made the mistake of doing her makeup in artificial light.
The best way to get a natural finish that looks good in every light is by doing your makeup in a window with a mirror. This way you can avoid looking like a pancake face when you step outside your door.
