Most beauty “problems” can be somewhat prevented and moisturizing your skin has proven to be important in successfully doing so. Finding a moisturizer that works well for your skin without negative effects can take a lot of trial and error. However if you’re aware of your skin type you’ll be that much more ahead. Many prestigious companies with a skin care line have questionnaires to help determine your skin type as well. Keep in mind when you approach new products that you need to know if you’re allergic to or have reactions with any specific ingredients or medicines. Being knowledgeable about your skin can save you a lot of grief and discomfort in the end.
I’ve tried multiple techniques for applying makeup; from using my fingers, sponges, and brushes- both cheap and of high quality. Before I started using brushes, I always thought they were just another ploy for companies to make money off of you and weren’t a necessity. I would always ignore the cute little girls at the makeup counters telling me how their beauty regimens have been completely turned around when they started using brushes. As cliche as it may sound, once you use a quality brush and have had practice with it, you wonder how you ever managed to apply makeup without it! I can’t even remember HOW I applied makeup before my love of brushes.
