I’ve been driving around in a red STI for the past couple of days and its been a huge culture shock! By culture I mean the Subaru culture and specifically the one having to do with the Impreza.
Never have I experienced such a friendly group of car enthusiasts while driving. It seems like everyone goes out of their way to wave to each other. The first time this happened I was a little dumbfounded and didn’t know how to react so I looked like a dick for not waving back. I really didn’t think anything of it until it kept on happening, over and over again. The reality of what was going on finally hit me after about the 5th time it happened in a day. Yesterday was the moment I realized how awesome the Subaru community is and why so many people get a Subaru. Yesterday was also the first time I realized that everyone NEEDS a daily dose of BOOOOOOST!!!!
I’m Valeria and today I will be sharing 5 common makeup mistakes. I will be telling you some mistakes you might do but I’m giving you solutions and telling you what can you do to fix it. Let’s get started!
1. Not cleaning or disinfecting your makeup brushes
How do I clean my brushes? Buy a brush cleanser and spray it all over your brushes, let them dry and you are done! If you can’t buy a brush cleanser you can use a baby shampoo for cleaning your makeup brushes.
How do I disinfect/sterilize my brushes?Cheapest and easiest way to do it is using rubbing alcohol. You will kill all the bacteria and remove old makeup. Please remember that cleaning and disinfecting your tools will take you some minutes. However if you skip that step you can get any infection.
2. Matching foundation to the back of your hand
Where should I match my foundation then? Why would we test foundation on our hands when we’ll be wearing it on our faces? Your face and hand are often not the same color as they don’t receive the same amount of sun exposure.
You should test your foundation underneath the eyes, on/around the nose and at the cheek/jawline.
3. Applying concealer wrong
How should I apply concealer? Apply concealer in a triangle shape all the way up to the brow bone for extra coverage. Also dab powder over the areas where you put concealer to make sure that they won’t crease or run off over the course of the day.
Keeping old mascara tubes
What should I do with my old mascara? If you can’t remember when you bought your mascara, toss it. The germs that grow in old mascaras can cause redness, itchiness, and even sties or pinkeye.
Mascara has the shortest life span so make sure to switch it out every four to six months or as soon as it starts smelling funky.
5. Applying lipstick directly to lips that are dry or flaky
What step should I follow before applying lipstick? When lips are cracked or chapped, your lipstick will make these cracks even more visible.
You need to prepare your lips for application by exfoliating with a sugar scrub or a toothbrush.
Hydrated lips will help with a smoother application while also making your lipstick more comfortable to wear.
