Many of us no doubt, love to wear makeup. This sometimes leads us into making countless researches, watching YouTube videos and even spying on makeup artistes at events. Well, it becomes stressful when there seems to be endless rules about makeup application and these rules tend to scare some ladies away. Well, some of these can be broken.
Here are the five makeup rules worth breaking;
1. NEVER GO BOLD ON BOTH THE EYES AND LIPS:
You should not go bold on both the eyes and the lips and that is often a dangerous and bold move. This is because making a bold statement is what makes us know ourselves better and even helps us embrace our fears altogether. Well, just do what you want. The worst that can happen is that you will end up turning heads everywhere you go, even if it is at night.
2. ALLOW MASCARA DRY IN BETWEEN COATS:
It is possible to you easily break this mascara rule which states that you should let mascara dry in between coats. You can opt to apply it by working it from the outside towards the inside. This involves applying the mascara first to the outer corner lashes, working inwards and then going back to the outer corner for the second coat.
3. MAKEUP SHOULD BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE INTENDED:
Well, no rule states that one should only use the products for the purpose intended that is; if it is a cream blush, let it be that and do not use it as lipstick. For some eyeliner brushes are paintbrushes and cheek highlighters are eye-shadows. It is simply being economical in the makeup department without having to spend more on the basic makeup items that can be used for more than one purpose. In all, you are bound to save, especially in this recession.
4. FOUNDATIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BLEND WITH THE NECK:
The idea that foundation should always match the neck even though the neck skin tone is never the same as the face skin tone is also worth breaking. As much as you might want to make it work so that you achieve that flawless overall look on you face and neck, theses shades are different. Thus the common sense thing to do is just make sure your face and chest blend more than your face and neck then it will make it easier for you.
5. APPLICATION OF CONCEALER BEFORE FOUNDATION:
This depends on how one wants the overall look to appear. You can always opt to apply the foundation first to see how much coverage it offers then spot conceal any areas that still have redness or darkness showing through. The only thing that you are likely to do under foundation is to colour correct, if necessary. Concealing is not a requirement most times.
Truly, we can break some of these makeup rules, being creative with ourselves!
