I have shared WHY it is important to choose the perfect foundation with you, I have also shared HOW to get the perfect make up routine with you + I have shared the IMPORTANCE of using the right tools for your make up application with you.

While all those are important to get that flawless make up in your make up routine, it is also important to know that although we may try, it is almost inevitable to prevent the face from becoming oily especially for people who have combination to oily skin……Today, I bring you “Why Beauty Blotter is a MUST in your make up Bag”.

 

THE REASONS WHY YOU MUST CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES ALWAYS

Every time I write makeup blogs, I always say, “to get the perfect or flawless makeup, you do not have to have the most expensive makeup BUT the right tools or makeup brushes”. What I mean is this; the right tools / make up brushes help you get flawless makeup finish and not the makeup itself.

While it is important to use the “best” tools to apply your make up, it is more important to care for the tools you use for your makeup application. WHY?

4 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE TRYING OUT OR BUYING A NEW FOUNDATION

Whether subtle make up or dramatic one, good “foundation” is the back bone of any kind of make up. To get that flawless looking skin even if you don’t have one, you need a foundation.

THE PERFECT AUTUMN / WINTER FOUNDATION ROUTINE (Dewy & Flawless)

In the colder months like November, December and January, the skin feels really dry or drier than normal. In these months, your make up lasts longer because their is little or no sun. Basically you do not sweat so much because there is less heat. To get that dewy and flawless skin for the season, no negotiations, you have to moisturise, moisturise and moisturise, if not your skin becomes drier. Your lips need moisture too.

HOW TO ACHIEVE A FLAWLESS SKIN & LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE NO MAKE UP ON

I love a full face of make up that looks almost like I am not wearing any make up. I have mastered this art by repeatedly doing my own make up and other people’s make up too. If you look at the photo at the top very well, you will notice that I have my brows done (intense because make up is neutral) eye make up done, contour done, blush done, lashes done and nude lips done. That is a full face of make up that looks like I wasn’t wearing so much. The photo is not photoshopped / altered, that is my real face!
