    6 Must Know Myths And Facts About Makeup

    When it comes to beauty, using makeup is one great tool to accentuate a person’s beautiful features and give a flawless look.

    Makeup, known as a beauty enhancer comes with its advantages and disadvantages but, unfortunately, there are some said disadvantages that are just myths and misconceptions.
    Hopefully, these makeup myths and facts help you out
    Myth: Primers And Moisturizers Work The Same Way
    Fact: Completely different in formula from moisturizers, Primers help in the easy application of the foundation by creating a smooth base and also making it last longer. A primer fills fine lines, minimizes the pore size, and prevents oiliness. Unlike moisturizer, which just hydrates the skin and controls dryness, a primer should be applied after moisturizing the skin and before applying foundation.

    Myth: Not everyone can look good with a Red lipstick
    Fact: A self-assumed myth by many beginners in makeup is not true! Anyone can rock red lipstick and look stunning. The only tip you should remember is to pick the right red depending on your skin tone. Red lipsticks are available in different shades. So, you can try different red shades and pick the one, which suits you the best.

    Myth: Choose Your Foundation By Matching It To Your Forehead, Neck, Cheek Or Hand
    Fact: Finding the perfect foundation is one of the toughest task in makeup. The color of the skin on the forehead, neck, cheek and hands differ completely from the face. Stand in front of a mirror and place your hand near your face and you will notice that your hand is darker than the skin tone of your face. It is the biggest makeup misconception to match your foundation with these areas of your skin. Different factors can change the skin color on your face more than the rest of the body. So, it is best to always swatch your foundation on the jawline of your face to get the perfect foundation shade and it is also good to try it in natural light.

    Myth: Eyeshadow Cannot Match Your Eye Color
    Fact: Contrasting colors with the eye makeup and eye color can really lift your eyes and make them pop, but that doesn’t mean you cannot match your eyeshadow with the eye color. Brown eyes can’t wear brown eyeshadow, blue eyes cannot carry blue eyeshadows are misconceptions. In fact, matching hues can also make a strong bold statement.
    Myth: Pick A Foundation That Is Lighter Than Your Skin
    Fact: Foundation is a makeup product, which is used to even out the skin tone and give flawless skin. But, people assume that looking fair is the only way to achieve a flawless look. Some people have darker complexions and usually pick up foundations, which are much lighter than our natural skin tone. The best way to find the perfect shade is to match your jaw line. If the foundation blends easily into your skin, then you have chosen the right color. If there is a lot of difficulty and it leaves a gray finish on your skin after application, then it is a wrong shade.

    Myth: Makeup Causes Breakouts
    Fact: There is absolutely no research, which says that makeup causes breakouts. Poor hygiene, using expired and low quality products can cause acne and other infections. The other main reason behind breakouts is when you don’t cleanse your face properly after applying makeup, sleeping with makeup on, using unclean brushes, etc. Breakouts can also be caused by using wrong products. It is always a good idea to perform skin test to ensure you have no allergies. These makeup facts and myths will surely help you make informed decisions while choosing the right products.
