wash your pillowcases regularly to prevent break outs.
do NOT use coconut oil as a moisturiser; it’s comedogenic, which means it clogs pores.
always apply sunscreen to your face (even if you’re brown) as it lessens the chance of sunspots and deepening already existing pigmentation.
lush ultrabalm is a really good multi-use product! you can use it to heal tattoos, as a lipbalm or to ease dry elbows. i like to apply it to my eyebrows for a naturally done-ish eyebrow look when i’m not wearing makeup.
always double cleanse at night; one time to remove any excess makeup and residue and another time to deep cleanse.
the makeup eraser is a great makeup remover, also eco-friendly. just use water! (although you still need to cleanse afterwards and not ideal for travelling).
DON’T put your face directly towards the shower head when showering, esp if you have sensitive skin. It can irritate capillaries.
if you’re looking for a good skincare tool, use a konjac sponge! keep in mind they need to be replaced regularly.
wash your makeup brushes regularly! i recommend at least spraying them with brush cleaner after every use. especially with your foundation brushes, as foundation gets caked in and is much harder to get out when you’re washing it!
use oils. even if you’re oily. but figure out you skin type first!
Hi there! After seeing your Star Wars cosplay, I was curious of what brand of face paint you recommend, and any techniques for applying it or keeping it from creasing, setting spray etcThank you!
Hi friend! So when I’m not covering a lot of space, ie: when most of my body is covered by the costume, I prefer to wear water based cake bodypaint. My favorite I’ve worked with so far is Mehron’s Paradise AQ. My process is as follows: I use a good foundation primer, apply the bodypaint with a wide foundation brush, seal with a finishing spray (I like Ben Nye’s Final Seal), contour with powder eye shadows and finally, seal everything with a good coat of matte, translucent powder makeup.
