Is makeup must for everyone?

Makeup is not a must, but you may want to use it. A little bit of lip gloss over a color or on its own will fill out your lips. Unless you're absolutely not allowed to, you should keep a little concealer, too, to cover up major blemishes. If you can't wear makeup, make sure you take really good care of your skin. This way, you won't have as many blemishes.

  • Keep your makeup in a cute carrying case and keep and essentials with you all the time in your purse, depending on where you're going.
  • Think about getting a natural blush. The right kind of blush will make you look like you're naturally blushing.
  • Apply mascara as curling opens your eyes up and makes them appear brighter and bigger.


I Add Water To My Shampoo To Make It Last Longer. Will It Clean as Well?
If it’s a concentrated shampoo that really lathers up (and takes a lot of water to rinse out), there’s no harm in adding water. It should be in 1:1 ratio only if required to be emulsified.

How Often Do I Need To Wash My Makeup Brushes?
Many experts agree that once a month is fine. Dip the brush in warm, soapy water—use mild shampoo only. Rinse it, blot the brush with a clean towel, then use a blow-dryer to dry the bristles gently.

Is it Safe To Line The Inner Rims of Your Eyes?
Two things to keep in mind: A steady hand is essential so you don’t poke yourself in the eye. And you can contaminate your liner if you have a budding eye infection and don’t realize it. (Once you put the cap back on, the germs can grow and thrive.)  Just always sharpen the pencil after lining your eyes. That way, you’ll put it back in the cap in pristine condition. If you have a full-blown eye infection, throw out the liner to avoid re-contamination.

Is It OK To Store a Lip Balm With SPF and a Bottle of Sunscreen In a Glove Compartment?
No, especially during summer. Once the car heats up in the sun, high temperatures can cause the sunscreen’s active ingredients to degrade right in the container. And the lip balm will melt, to boot. When you apply a degraded sunscreen or balm to your skin, you’re not getting the SPF that’s indicated on the bottle. In fact, you might be applying nothing more than a thick moisturizer.

Can I Leave a Bottle of Body Moisturizer in the Shower?
As long as you keep the lid tightly closed and use the product within six to eight weeks. Also, be sure to keep the shower curtain and door open to allow adequate ventilation between uses. Otherwise, dampness in the stall can promote the growth of bacteria, yeast, or fungi in the cream, especially if it's an organic product with no preservatives.

I Often Apply Makeup On the Bus To Work. Can it Become Contaminated?
Only if you use your fingers after touching surfaces that countless other hands have touched. If you use a clean applicator, sponge, or brush, your makeup isn't liable to get sullied.
