“Skincare News” Presents Skincare Beauty FAQ Handbook


Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB)

skincareEven if a woman only wears makeup on occasion, learning what works and what doesn’t is key to a polished look. For makeup mavens, this guide can help streamline routines and offer tips on keeping products organized and fresh. Use Part 10 of Skincare-news.com’s Skincare & Beauty FAQ Handbook to demystify cosmetics like primers and mineral makeup, and create the best makeup regimen for individual skin type and lifestyle.

Q: Is mineral makeup a good choice for people with very dry skin?

A: Powder cosmetics tend to settle in dry spots, so it’s best to choose cream powders, eye shadows and blush. But if people still want to give mineral makeup a go, they can use a deeply hydrating moisturizer first. Try applying the powder with a brush for the most natural-looking coverage. This will also minimize dryness.

Q: Any tips on making thin lips look fuller?

A: Thin lips occur due to lack of collagen. Some women naturally have less collagen than others, and many lose collagen as they age. To make lips look as plump as possible, avoid dark lip colors, which have a minimizing effect, making lips look smaller. Top your lip color with a shiny gloss; it will reflect light and make lips look bigger. Finally, create dimension by lining lips with a lip pencil one shade deeper than lipstick.

Q: When should people throw out mascara?

A: After three months, it’s time to toss mascara. But if the mascara smells funny or its texture has changed, no matter how long it’s been, throw it out. Also, avoid pumping the mascara wand because this lets dry air in and invites bacteria, spoiling the product faster and increasing the risk of infection.

Q: What’s the best way to store brushes?

A: At home, it’s fine to keep brushes in a jar. But when traveling, keep brushes in a separate bag or container so they don’t get ruined. People can also purchase a brush roll, which contains a separate slot for each brush and rolls up when they’re on the go.

Q: What is a makeup primer?

A: When foundation is applied directly to the skin, it can sink into fine lines or large pores, accentuating these concerns. By first adding a makeup primer (also known as a foundation primer), these spaces are filled in so that foundation goes on smoother, creating a more even complexion.
