One of the most frequently asked question by my clients is “how bad is the regular use of makeup for the skin?”

Who doesn’t wear makeup these days, I mean WHO?

I have clients asking me literally to formulate a serum-based foundation for them to use while they drop off their kids to school.

And I totally get that, because even I have caught myself wearing makeup in a condition where I couldn’t even talk because of illness. My only concern, I didn’t want to look sick when I was sick!!

But you know what, you don’t have to have clogged pores and dull skin because of wearing makeup everyday, all day.

You can pull off clear vibrant skin even after feeding it with those concealers and foundations for 10 straight hours everyday.

Just follow these 5 tips and you are good to go.

1.Use makeup with SPF for the day.

Its a total myth that you need to let your skin breathe by leaving it bare. Skin does not have a respiratory system that it can breathe. And makeup is not bad for your skin if you use appropriate formula for your skin type.

Where a layer of foundation and setting powder provide additional protection against the sun-rays, you have to understand that it cannot be replaced by a proper sunscreen.

A foundation doesn’t compensate for a sunscreen.

Don’t think that wearing a thick layer of foundation means you are protecting your skin completely from UVA and UVB rays.

You need to wear a shield of physical sunscreen under your foundation or use a foundation that carries an SPF in it.

I usually tell my clients to buy a setting powder with an SPF,so they can reapply it every 2-3 hours during the day. Even the setting sprays with sun protection factor solve the purpose.

2.Use oil-free makeup if you have oily skin.

Just the way different skin types need different skincare; they need different makeup too.
Where makeup is concerned, it doesn’t go by the rule of one for all.

Especially the oily skin needs to kept far off from heavy oil based foundations and primers.
Sometimes the synthetic perfumes and oils can travel deep into the skin and cause inflammation and result in breakouts and blemishes too.

There is wide choice of oil free makeup available in different brands that can give a perfect matte finish to the skin without disrupting its natural oil balance.

3.Clean your makeup brushes and sponges.

I know that cleaning the making brushes sounds like a total work to everyone. But its way too important to clean the brushes at least once a month otherwise every time to apply makeup, you are wearing all the bacteria, dirt and oil that the brushes carry on them.

Product: Real techniques formula brush cleaning gel

4.Makeup has an expiry date.

Generally what we do is use the makeup till it gets out of trend without taking into account the expiry date of the product. Especially foundations and mascara, once opened, get exposed to air, allowing the bacteria to enter the bottle.

These products if used even after the expiration date, might cause some serious allergies and infections.

You should never use cosmetics post expiration. They should be tossed after the expiration date, no matter how much product is still left to use.

5.Just a makeup-removing wipe isn’t enough to take off the makeup.

Consistent use of creamy, oil based layers of foundations and primers can cause the pores to clog resulting in bumpy skin surface and other signs of ageing like blemishes and uneven skin tone.

Makeup removing wipes are not enough to break down the thick layer of makeup thoroughly. Its important to use a makeup remover with the formulas that are designed to wipe off the makeup before wetting your face to use a face wash.

After cleaning the face with the make up wipe, use a cotton ball drenched with a good quality makeup remover to gently take off the makeup and then wash off with a hydrating face wash.
If not carrying any makeup remover, use jojoba oil to remove the makeup.

Its very important to go easy on the delicate area around the eyes. Use a gentle eye makeup remover specially formulated for the sensitive area around the eyes, to remove the eye makeup and that waterproof mascara without pulling and rubbing the delicate skin.

Even gentle exfoliation or a pore-clearing mask would work very well after taking off the makeup at night, keeping the pores clean.

Product: Cucumber organics cleansing oil for acne prone skin.

Wearing makeup for longer hours, day after day, has far more affect on your skin then you realize.
So if you are using makeup regularly and at the same time keen to keep your skin in the best of health, its very important that you follow these simple tips and avoid the harmful effects of makeup.

My skin care routine in my early twenties can be summed up in four letters: DGAF. But now—as I speed-walk toward the finish line of my late twenties—taking care of my face is on the top of my priorities list. Not because I want to beat back the ravages of time (I truly DGAF about that), but because I want my skin to be radiant 24/7. My skin’s luminosity pretty much flickers like the bare bulb in a horror movie basement—it’s just not reliable. Luckily, I genuinely enjoy my twice-daily face cleansing self-care rituals. Fifteen minutes of being absolutely present in my body, while also taking care of it, is something I desperately need. I love skin care products, and not just the fun, bubbly ones. I live for a good serum. I have a whole shelf dedicated to acids and exfoliants. But the one thing I don’t mess with? Makeup wipes.

I’ll grant you that they’re good at cleaning makeup off of clothes and wiping away stubborn lipstick or mascara, but they suck at cleaning your face. Makeup wipes are fake skin care, and I say that as a Bravo TV fan with a high tolerance for all things contrived. While quick and convenient, using them at night wrecked havoc on my skin. Since it looked like my makeup had disappeared, I didn’t feel like I had to follow up with an actual wash. After all, remover is right there in the product name.

That’s why they’re such a scam.

Like that one hook up buddy you keep inviting over even though they do just a meh job, makeup wipes seem like a great idea at the time. They’re not. They’re terrible. I absolutely understand their uncomplicated allure. I had a sex-friend through college and our (not-really-a) relationship seemed like a low-maintenance thing. In reality, we were creating deep-rooted problems along the way that would take a long time to remedy. It was healthier for us both when we parted ways. And it will be healthier for both you and your skin if you break up with makeup wipes.

“Makeup wipes seem like a great idea at the time. They’re not. They’re terrible.”

To confirm my suspicions, I turned to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital. And, yes, your makeup wipes are lying to you.

First things first: Makeup wipes don’t really clean your skin. Mostly, they smear around whatever makeup, dirt, and dead skin is hanging out on your face, leaving a trail of irritated skin in their wake. According to Zeichner, makeup wipes can cause irritation due to preservatives that prevent micro-organisms from contaminating the wipes. In some, that includes formaldehyde-releasing chemicals, solubilizers, surfactants, and emulsifiers. The bad stuff tucked away inside of makeup wipes is housed in the cleansing ingredient so unless you follow your wipe down with a cleanser, you increase your risk of developing inflammation on your skin, Zeichner says.

Then there’s the mechanics of scrubbing your face with makeup wipes, which can also leave you with red, angry skin. “Rubbing can cause low-grade inflammation that, over time, can promote skin pigmentation or even early wrinkling,” Zeichner told me. I’m not too tripped about wrinkles (they’re inevitable), but I’d rather stumble into my bathroom for a haphazard round of double-cleansing than risk any wack pigmentation issues.

Now, let me be clear, Dr. Zeichner did say that compared to not washing your face, wipes are a great option. But personally, I’m staunchly opposed to a better than nothing mentality. Is it a fact that rubbing cooking oil on your face will make it moisturized? Sure, there’s some hydration to be found in almost all oils, but you cannot convince me that kitchen cabinet moisturizer is better than the one I’m currently using.

If you’ve got face wash sitting in your bathroom, there’s no reason not to walk, crawl, or drag yourself to the sink and wash your damn face. It might feel smart to have an “in case of emergency” stash of makeup wipes next to your bed, but if you’re going to take the extra step to cleanse your face at all, why risk pigmentation, irritation, or a breakout? Eliminate the problem and hit up your bathroom as soon as you get home after a late night out. Lately, I’ve started this thing where I walk in the door and straight to the sink to take full advantage of my fast-draining energy. I don’t need to be 100 percent awake to Netflix-binge, but I do need to be at least 85 percent mostly-awake to go through my full skin care routine.

Of course, there are passes to be given here. I loathe makeup wipes, but there are times when I can’t drag myself out of bed, not because I drank too much—although that has been known to happen—but because I’m sad or sick or a depressive combination of both. In those moments, I’ve got a better wash-in-bed solution: I keep a bottle of no-rinse micellar water and some organic cotton pads on my bedside table. The combo works like a charm and doesn’t leave my skin dry and itchy in the morning. Break up with your wipes. Wash your face.

Makeup is a creative visual expression of individuality that sets unrealistic beauty standards and lifestyle which is constantly misinterpreted to portray a high-end vivacity. The boost of confidence that women get from makeup is related to how they feel after hiding their imperfections. Naturally, their newfound perfection will boost self-esteem, personality, and positive attitude when pride and confidence in a person increase chances of success go high too. After feeling good, everything around you changes from treating others well and having a burst of energy to doing things.

Effective Communication and Expression

Every day we rely on communicating our feelings, wants, and needs, the ability to convey information effectively and efficiently, whether verbally, non-verbally, or written. Self-esteem contributes to how well articulated a person is with their thoughts. Creating working and loving relationships with family, friends, clients require mastering the skill. Self-confidence comes composure which is an excellent thing to cohesively state what you need to the person you want to tell. For example, a case of a nerdy girl who popular kids with flawless skin constantly bully because of acne or skin problems discovers cosmetics that make her face smooth and beautiful. She will have the confidence to face her bullies and earn respect, which stops the bullying, and life gets a little easier.

Developing a Feminine Identity and Resisting Unrealistic Beauty Standards and Fake Lifestyles

Attractiveness is essential in women’s lives because physical appearance is an integral component of female gender identity. Objectification causes society to view the female body as being examined and evaluated. Women’s bodies are exposed to society’s exacting standards, almost guaranteeing that women will feel inadequate. Women’s self-esteem is often associated with their physical appearance and, more specifically, their ability to meet ideal beauty standards and, as a result, choosing to wipe off imperfections with makeup. A dangerous situation gets created where women satisfied with their appearance report higher self-esteem, social confidence, and more enjoyable social interactions. In contrast, women who do not meet societal standards report being discouraged and depressed.

Self-Presentation and Self-Image Management for Social Acceptance

Presentation and self-image are how one wants to be seen in public, for example, due to the unrealistic beauty standards that seem to state the lifestyle they lead for social acceptance. For example, a campus student who makes friends with people higher in her social class will wear the same makeup to feel they belong. The appearance change will also lead to complete assimilation of behavior and attitude.

High Rate of Success Contributed by the Boost of Confidence

When a woman feels good about herself confident, her ambition grows, and believing in herself becomes the norm. She starts achieving what she sets her mind to and keeps going until they can ultimately fulfill their heart desires as quickly. This improvement is just from her positive mindset, boosting the social representation, breaking the barriers of unrealistic beauty standards and lifestyle, and loving herself more. Don’t we love the power of makeup?

Makeup is worn by many women daily, and yet the

damage can be devastating as much as it can be empowering, for it’s easy for a misunderstanding to occur.

Anyone who loves beauty knows your favorite lipstick, skincare serum that soothes and leaves you glowing, or perfume that makes you smell and feel like a million dollars. However, it has earned them billions for a few people by selling overpriced branded makeup and cruelty-free authenticity. Many beauty tycoons have built their fortunes through their artistry or a true passion for merchandise. The global market is a considerable ground with many customers who have to meet the demand and make the sales. There emerges competition, and the industry grows every day with healthy competition. While most folks purchase their beauty products in spots such as pharmacies and grocery stores, there is a particular category of cosmetics for those who want a luxe experience when it comes to makeup and skincare.

The brand-influencer collaborations

In this modern world, online influencers are doing everything efficiently to reach the targeted audience on social media who want to buy cruelty-free, overpriced branded makeup, which is an excellent platform for outreach to all kinds of customers worldwide. Especially an influencer with many followers would endorse your product to a new demographic, expanding your business. As a luxury brand, designers continue to work with collaborators regularly. More importantly, folks maintain relationships with influencers who can grow with the brand and create content that we all can indeed be delighted to share. These collaborations help in building credibility for the products for your consumers.

Environment sustainability for cruelty-free overpriced branded makeup

The environmental impact of the growing worldwide cosmetics and beauty industry extends from raw material sourcing to production, distribution, and waste generated by end consumers. A few countries still allow animal testing on cosmetics. Even though the FDA does not require any testing before makeup is on the market in the United States, countless products that reach American shelves still go through animal testing because they are manufactured or sold in countries that allow or require it. Mixed-material containers such as mascara tubes, compacts, cream jars, and so on, recycled into insulation, carpeting, and car parts, but this is disadvantaged for giving big corporations an out in terms of sustainable packaging.

Colorism in Common Overpriced Brand Make up

There’s growth expected in the global skin lighteners market, and these skin lighteners have been on the market for a long time, causing physical and emotional harm to consumers all over the world. Colorism is present in the absence of proper shade ranges that accurately represent the actual variety of skin tones. In addition to skin whiteners, it’s critical to be aware of a brand’s failure to be racially inclusive because it reinforces racist ideals of beauty and prevents us from progressing toward a society that can and should celebrate diversity.

Makeup and skincare may appear to be utterly trivial topics. Still, they are essential to discuss because the beauty industry is a billion-dollar industry that influences how our society perceives human beauty, social advantage, and merit. Ensure that the products in our industry are safe, cruelty-free but overpriced branded makeup, especially, for the luxury brands.

When a person looks at a woman’s face, more often than not, the first thing they notices are her eyes. The eyes are the windows to the soul, as they say, and they are the brightest and the most beautiful features in a woman’s face. That is why the eyes are given much attention when eye makeup is applied to her face, and the choice of eyeshadow and the way it is used is always made with great care.

Whenever you put on your eye makeup, your aim should always be to make your eyes look brighter. Your eye makeup should make your eyes stand out among the other features of your face. You can achieve this by selecting the right colors for your eyeshadow and creating the right blend of eyeshadow for your eyes.

The colors you choose for your eyeshadow should either match the color of your eyes or provide a contrast to it. If your eyes are blue, then blue eyeshadow would work perfectly for you. If your eyes are brown or hazel, brownish or golden tints for your eyeshadow would be gorgeous. Nonetheless, blue eyeshadow on brown eyes can provide a lovely contrast and make the eyes appear brighter.

Your eyeshadow should be composed of three shades: a light color such as taupe for your base shadow, a darker highlighter for the crease of your eyes, and the primary blush for your eyelid, which is a shade lighter than your highlighter. The key to doing your eyeshadow work is to blend in these three colors.

Applying your eye makeup comes after you have put foundation on your face. Always make it a point to put on your makeup from the eyes downward. Before putting on eye makeup, prime your lids first with eye cream for protecting the sensitive skin of your eyelids, and then dab on a bit of foundation over them. The foundation will make sure that your eyeshadow will last for hours.

After you are done with the foundation, dab on the base color for your eyeshadow, covering the whole lid and the brow bone, follow it with the primary color for your eyelid. The highlighter comes next, but do take care how you put your highlighter because if applied the wrong way, your highlighter can make your eyes look too big and too beady. Keep your highlighter to the outer edges of your eyes. Also, avoid putting a highlighter on your brow bone unless you are putting on makeup for an evening affair or going to a photoshoot. Blend the three shades of your eyeshadow carefully, so they appear to smooth over each other.

After you are done with your eyeshadow, you can start putting on the other elements of your eye makeup applied to the eyebrows and the eyelashes. Your eyebrows give character to your eyes, so you should not neglect them when putting on eye makeup. Brush them with a brow brush and then shape them with eyeliner. Make sure that your eyeliner pencil is sharp and matches the shade of your mascara.

As for your eyelashes, the proper application of mascara on them will do a lot in making your eyes pop. Mascara extends the length of your eyelashes and makes them appear thicker. Curl your eyelashes first with an eyelash curler before putting on your eyeshadow so the thing would not mess up your carefully blended eyeshadow. Put just enough mascara and wipe away excess mascara from the applicator before putting it to your lashes so that your lashes will not clump together. Also, use smudge-proof and waterproof mascara not to run if ever tears come to your eyes, especially when wearing contact lenses. To finish it off, line your eyelids just under the lashes with eyeliner.

If you want special touches to your eye makeup, you can put a slight shimmer on your eyes to make them appear brighter. However, if your age lingers around 30 and above, use shimmer with caution because shimmer can attract unwanted attention to the wrinkles around your eyes if you have them already. Special occasions require special touches on your eye makeup, though, and in that case, you can put a tiny amount of shimmer on your brow bone. You can further brighten your eyes by drawing a dot or two with white eyeliner or eyeshadow on the inner edge of your eyes.

Another thing you should remember when putting on eye makeup is to go for balance. If you are wearing bright red lipstick, tone down your eye makeup. You can forego wearing eye shadow and stick to mascara and eyeliner if you are wearing red lipstick. Wearing red lipstick and dark eyeshadow will only make you appear like a clown.

Inputting makeup, we should consider how we put on our eye makeup and how we apply eyeshadow. The eyes, after all, are the most beautiful features on a woman’s face, so we should emphasize their beauty always.

If you’ve always dreamed of becoming a professional, well-paid makeup artist, you might be able to realize your dreams sooner than you think. Helping others look their best can be a rewarding career both emotionally and financially. But just like any other profession, getting the proper training is essential for success. Makeup classes can help in more ways than one.

Learn Makeup Application for All Occasions

Perhaps you already know the basics of applying makeup, but that’s not all you should know to become a professional makeup artist. Makeup courses can teach you to use makeup for all different special occasions. You are applying makeup for a bride before her wedding is other than makeup for a glamour shot. There are many occasions where the correct type of makeup makes all the difference, such as ceremonies, award presentations, black tie events, informal dances, proms, and parties.

Makeup schools also teach you to apply makeup properly for specific needs such as a photoshoot for a model, a live performance by a speaker, politician, ballet dancer, opera singer, or musician, or even an acting session for an actor before entering the filming studio.

Makeup for the camera is often much different than everyday makeup applications, so it’s wise to take some makeup lessons on these other methods.

Makeup Application for Different Skin Types

Another way makeup courses can help you develop your talents is to teach you to apply makeup for a variety of skin types. Skin comes in different color shades, depending on the person’s skin pigmentation. There is also oily skin, dry skin, and skin that falls somewhere in between. You’ll need makeup lessons to learn about the skin types and what type of makeup should be applied to each individual’s skin.

Knowing how to determine the colors of makeup is also important. It would help if you considered the person’s skin color, eye color, hair color, and face shape to find the perfect color match. Depending on the type of makeup artist you will be, you might apply makeup to men. Mostly, this would be for photos or the live camera.

Learn Other Makeup Techniques

Other makeup techniques you can learn by taking makeup classes include airbrush techniques, applying special effects makeup, using makeup in salons or spas, working for cosmetic companies, and many others. You’ll also learn to work with people and assess their needs before applying their makeup to get just the right match for their personality and skin type.

Makeup classes can help you develop your skills as a makeup artist while teaching you the many techniques necessary to become a well-paid professional. If you cannot take an entire college course, which can take years to complete, try a makeup workshop that provides a robust method on makeup for a limited amount of time. Some of the greatest makeup artists, the best makeup workshops, and the most career opportunities can be found in Hollywood.

You’ll be helping others shine with gorgeous makeup in no time!

When you see celebrities walk down the red carpet, see actors on the silver screen, or view the fashion models in your preferred magazine, what you don’t see are the invisible hands of the people who make celebrities and models look their most high-grade – the makeup artists.

There’s no doubt that makeup artists perform magic. Their artwork tells a story. Sometimes it’s a story of glamour, sometimes it’s the story reflected in the season’s fashions, and sometimes it’s the reflection of a story being told by a script. What you may not know, though, is that freelance makeup artists also create lucrative careers in the worlds of fashion, celebrity, advertising, print media, music, television, and film.

The Path to Becoming an Artist

If you believe that makeup tells a story, enjoy being part of the creative process, and thrive working in a constantly changing environment, a career as a makeup artist may be your calling. But to succeed as a makeup artist, you need training and experience. That’s where makeup classes come in. With intensive makeup lessons, you’ll be able to take your natural talent and learn the techniques necessary to get started in the business.

Finding Schools

While you may find a makeup workshop or makeup courses in most major cities, the place to go to learn makeup in Hollywood, the most incredible makeup artists reside and teach in or around the Los Angeles area. When evaluating various makeup classes, here’s what to look for:

Small Class Size: Small makeup classes (with eight students maximum) ensure the best hands-on instruction customized to meet your individual needs.

Length of Cosmetic Courses: The best makeup courses are eight weeks long and provide about 280 hours of instruction and workshop time. Becoming a makeup artist requires dedication and commitment, and an entire eight-week system will provide you with all of the information you need to succeed.

Variety of Products: The makeup classes you choose should have product workshops that teach you about the myriad of cosmetic lines and products on the market today. You need to have information and develop experience working with different makeup types to make sound decisions when you invest in your professional makeup kit.

Variety of Techniques: Your classes should teach you how to apply makeup for various mediums, such as film, television, high-definition, fashion runway, and music videos. Look for makeup courses specializing in airbrush makeup, as this technique has gained increasing importance in the industry. It would help if you also were taught bridal makeup, ethnic makeup, mature makeup, and children’s makeup.

Developing your artistry in makeup application is critical, but there’s more to succeeding as a freelance makeup artist than honing your skills. You also need information on the business aspects of being a makeup artist, such as marketing yourself and building your portfolio. The best makeup schools will include a final course project, a three-day photo shoot that will prepare you to plan your photoshoots and give you a jump start on building your portfolio.

A career as an artist is both personally and financially rewarding. Great makeup classes allow you to invest in your future and open doors to the glamorous, behind-the-scenes world of glamour, celebrity, and fashion.
