My Beauty/Skincare Confessions


I realised that a big part of being a beauty blogger involves you trying different products to know which works best, it involves a process of trial and error. This is how we learn what works and what isn't right? It’s basically my job to try out beauty products and tell you how they work. But i av to confess even after awhile in the game, I still miss it. Even though I know better, I still find myself committing all kinds of skincare sins. Here are some of my worst.....lol





I sometimes consider cheap products good: A lot of times, I end up buying some products cuz its very affordable compared to some other products. But where I tend to miss it is that when I use the products I have purchased, the results come out really horrible and I end up regretting why I brought it in the first place.

I don’t wash my personal makeup brushes often enough. I don’t even want to go into detail. It’s just embarrassing and shameful. But new year, new resolution.....*winks*

I don’t always take off my makeup at night. yeah yeah, I know I preach cleansing face at night, but sometimes I just don't do it, I get home really tired and just fall on my bed and sleep off. Don't be like me peeps, cleanse ur face every night.....

Sometimes I really don’t care about my skincare as much as I should. I'm sure I am not the only one, right? If I see a breakout or any discomfort on my skin or face, I freak out and go into skincare overkill mode. But if everything more or less looks alright, I go into relax mode which I know it’s wrong. But it happens or call it laziness. I’m a work in progress and I’m trying to be better to my body’s largest organ.

So who is perfect, cuz am into this line of biz don't make me perfect. We all make mistakes sometimes. But it shouldn't be a habit that's all.

These are a few of my skincare confessions that I am willing to share! What are yours? What skin care resolutions do you need to make for the new year?

Applying Foundation: Fingers or Brushes?

When applying foundation, what do you usually do? Do you blend directly with your fingers or do you use tools, like brushes or sponges? I cant exactly say which is the best, but let's take an in-depth look at these two different techniques for applying your face makeup.




FINGERS

VS

Why it works:
The natural heat of your body allows the makeup to melt in your hands.
Many members agree that using your fingers is more precise.
Brushes cost money, but your fingers are free! No splurging on expensive tools.Why you should avoid it:

If you don't wash your hands, using your fingers can spread bacteria to the face.
Even if you do wash your hands, fingers still spread oils around that lead to acne.
Finger application can be messy - watch out for stained hands!




BRUSHES/SPONGES






 Why it works:
  • With so many brush types, you can experiment for the perfect finish.
  • Having a brush set allows you to apply makeup on friends without the germs.
  • Brushes (and sponges) usually give a lighter, less caked-on finish.

         Why you should avoid it:
  • Brushes and sponges are absorbent, so you might waste more product.
  • Without proper cleaning, these tools will be full of bacteria and dead skin cells.
  • Makeup brushes and sponges can be expensive if you're a newbie

Final verdict: Both techniques have the same number of pros and cons, so there's no clear answer as to which is the best. Experiment and find what works best for you. You might find, for example, that brushes are better for powders while fingers are better for liquids.

No matter which technique you use, though, make sure you keep your tools (whether they're attached to your body or not!) clean before makeup application. Brushes should be washed at least once a week with brush cleanser, and your make sure you wash your hands before rubbing on product
