Common makeup misconceptions to avoid

makeup misconceptions

A lot has been said about how a bride should go about with regard to her makeup look(s) or what is wrong or right. But being the bride you cannot afford to believe anything and everything. Down below we have busted some common makeup myths that every bride-to-be should know about. So brides-to-be take a cue from these common makeup misconceptions and look the best all throughout your wedding shenanigans!

General Makeup Myth 

There is nothing wrong, I repeat, nothing wrong with wearing makeup every day! If you are a new bride or a to-be-bride you need to look your best at all times, it is perfectly okay to wear makeup as long as you are not using old products and aren’t cheating on your skincare regime (if you know what I mean: removing your makeup properly and timely!)

Makeup Brush Myth

You can’t avoid washing makeup brushes even if you’re the only person who uses makeup. Your makeup brushes are exposed to a great number of products and surfaces. The longer you avoid washing them, the more bacteria will accumulate in their fibres… Ew! This can not only lead to skin diseases and no bride/ to be bride would want any skin diseases on their pretty faces!

Mascara Myths 

If you dip a mascara wand into the tube several times, you will not get rid of lumps and there will be more product on your wand. Ladies, this must stop right away! Pumping your mascara wand several times will not give you thicker lashes or more products but in fact, create a clumpy look. This is because if the air entering into the tube which ultimately dries out your mascara!

Shimmer Products Myths

makeup misconceptionsGlitter/Shimmer will not make you look gaudy. You are the bride! You want to look extra radiant and striking as a bride. Use creams powders and lotions containing fine glitter particles are excellent for an extra radiant look as a bride. Having said that be careful while applying these shimmer products as they are really pigmented and less is more!

Foundation Myths

Stop matching your foundation to your wrist or your hand. Ladies, don’t be fooled with these makeup misconceptions anymore! We all have the struggle of finding the correct foundation match but it makes no sense in testing the foundation by swatching it on your wrist or hand because the skin tone will obviously vary from your face (Hello Sun exposure!). For best results, it is important to test for colour accuracy on your jawline in natural light on clean skin; this will ensure your foundation is the perfect shade for your complexion.
