An easy way to do so is by drinking lots of water. you need to maintain your water intake. You can also install a humidifier to manage the moisture level in your home. This will keep your skin happy.

If you have acne or breakouts, use products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin to help repair the moisture barrier of your skin.

4) Take care of your skin:

The warm sun rays feel pleasant, but the UV rays can damage your skin. Choose a sunscreen that has titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Also, avoid going outside immediately after you have washed your hands or after a shower. Wait for the skin to dry because damp skin tends to crack easily in the cold.

It amazing what makeup can do, but our morning time is limited. And we don’t feel like spending a ton of time and effort on cosmetics when we should be planning our day. So, here are some tips to get the most out of your makeup routine with the least amount of time, effort and products.

Let’s start with organizing and then to quick get-ready tips.

Cut Down Your Stash:

Like most makeup enthusiasts, I’ve experimented here and there over the years. A new eyeshadow colour, a failed attempt at bright red lipstick – it’s easy to build up a small landfill of products in your own makeup bag. The first step in streamlining your routine? Get rid of everything you don’t use.

Keep Two Makeup Bags or Shelves:

I have two different storage boxes – one for my everyday makeup, which isn’t much and mainly has my coloured liners, blush and office wear highlighter and then there’s the box that has makeup I use when I’m trying to look fancy, which includes foundation, eyeshadow palettes, bronzer, highlighter and so on. This way, I don’t have to go through a bunch of products I don’t normally wear. For a person like me who has close to 90 eyeliners, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed and loose track of time. Cutting back on your products makes the whole process quicker. It’s like cleaning out your closets – the fewer options you have, the easier it is to make decisions.

Find Multipurpose Products:

Try to look for products that can play multiple roles, like BB and CC creams, which are supposed to act as moisturiser, foundation, primer and sometimes, anti-ageing cream. But beyond that, you can get creative with regular products. Cream blush can be used as lip gloss, mascara can be used as eyeliner – bring the wand to your lash line and gently rub. Bronzer can be used as eyeshadow.

Use a Basic, Universal Routine: If you don’t know where to start with makeup, or if you don’t know what to focus on, just use a basic, pre-planned routine. Here’s a 5-minute routine I follow in the morning while getting my breakfast ready and packing my lunch.

1- Prep skin with moisturiser that has SPF. I always use a tinted moisturiser, so I have primer, moisturiser, foundation all in one. (2 minutes)

2- Apply eyeliner (1 minute).

3- Put on blush (1 minute). I can never walk out of my house without a blush. I feel it defines your cheekbone structure.

4- Put on highlighter. I use a subtle highlighter; it just gives me a nice glow and helps me look fresh. (1 minute)

5- Apply a sheer gloss or lipstick to finish
(15 seconds).

Application Tips

. I use my fourth finger to apply concealer on the inner corner of my eye, bringing it halfway through my undereye to make my eyes pop.

. Before I found the stamp eyeliner, I would play connect-the-dots with my eyeliner. I would put 3 to 4 dots and then connect them with small strokes to get a perfect wing.

. I use highlighter to look very well-rested – on the highest point of my cheekbones, on inner corner and on the bridge of my nose.

. The triangle concealer trick: Draw a triangle under your eyes with concealer, then blend for a more even, fuller look.

Remember, makeup is an art that you will master over time.

When it comes to makeup, almost all of us plague with the same dilemma every day: it simply won’t stay on throughout the day. It’s either fading away, melting off or rubbing onto clothes. No matter if you — primer, powder or use a setting spray. You just can’t seem to win. That is, until this trend come across. YouTubers are trying out a new Korean beauty trend called Jamsu.

Jamsu, which literally translates to “submerge” or “dive,” is exactly what it sounds like — dunking your face in cold water to seal makeup onto your face.

We have to admit, the trend is little thrown off. I mean, dunking your face into a basin filled with water?! How is that supposed to work? While it is fairly skeptical, but it is so damn fascinating. It’s just intriguing, and we have to give them a whirl to see what all the hype is about.

So, you just dunk your face in water?

Well, it’s a bit more complicated than that.

After applying foundation and concealer, the a key ingredient that seals the deal is baby powder.

Baby Powder - Jamsu

today_jamsu_gif4_new_3016a6ff4af7bc92f143e0bf2a99c20f

Apply a very thick layer of baby powder on your face ( caution: it’s a lot messier), you are ready for the next step of dunking your face into cold water for 30 seconds.

What happened after?

today_jamsu_gif2_new_3016a6ff4af7bc92f143e0bf2a99c20f

After emerging from the freezing cold water, your face will be baby powder-free. The water will wash away every last speck of powder from the face, but your foundation will be still on perfectly (gasp!) even after patting the face dry. In fact, the foundation will look better than ever. Pores will nearly invisible and the complexion will look smooth and even toned. What?!

Continue to apply the rest of your makeup as you normally would and be ready head out into the world. Where your face will stay fresh through out. TRY IT!

Getting new beauty products is a lot like having new babies to love, without having to go through labor. And the feeling to cover your body* with new makeup is simply out of this world.

beauty-products

*Don’t listen to people who tell you there’s such a thing as “too much makeup.”

But while we’re starstruck with the beautiful children we’ve just adopted. This little symbol on the package goes Unnoticed.

beauty-products

If the product has passed its expiration date, the product either becomes ineffective or it can possibly cause a bacterial infection.

For example, mascara expires in six months and if you’ve been using it for longer, you’re consistently putting bacteria from your eyes into a expired product tube, and that bacteria can grow, which again you’re redepositing in your eyes. PLUS, expired, dry mascara causes flakes, which is never cute.

TL;DR: Throw the expired product.

sub-buzz-13395-1471965566-1

Every beauty product should have the jar and number symbol on its packaging — whether it’s on the product itself or on the packing it comes in. Make sure you look for the symbol before you throw out the plastic and/or paper packaging.

The countdown begins the day you open the product, not the day you buy it. So if you buy makeup and don’t open it for another month, start counting from the day you begin using the product.

We would’n have any idea about contouring, if it weren’t for Kim Kardashian. So who’s better than herself to teach us the magical face slimming trick.

Step’s for mastering the Kardashian perfection:

Step #1: Get Primed

Large pores are such a bummer. To conceal, it’s important to start with a good primer; so that way foundation won’t accentuate pores.

Step #2: Even out your skin tone

Kardashian’s favorite drugstore foundation is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. This foundation is a favorite among many makeup artists for its texture, great coverage, and wide range of shades. She applies it in circular motions all over her face.

Kardashian’s helpful foundation tip: “Don’t forget to carry your foundation down your neck.”

Step #3: Highlight

She takes a light tone powder down the bridge of your nose to highlight. To conceal the under eye and highlight cheekbones, she uses a damp Beautyblender and applies a highlighting concealer under her eyes in a V shape to make the cheekbones pop. Kardashian likes M.A.C. Studio Fix Concealer NC 20.

Step #4: Mattefy

Kardashian begins her contour process by brushing a matte bronzer down the sides of her nose. After that, with a contouring brush she contours the hollows of her cheekbones till the angle her of eye-brows and blends it by pushing in upward direction. She then sets her makeup with loose powder so she doesn’t lose all her hard work.

Step #5: Blush

Then she adds blush to the apples of her cheeks. And guess what? Kardashian uses Nars Blush in Orgasm just like rest of us. And to finish it all off, Kardashian applies the powder highlighter to the tops of her cheekbones.

Step #6: Lips

For lips, she starts off by lining them with a neutral pink lip liner and fills them in completely. With the help of a brush, she then apply a peach lipstick M.A.C. lipstick Cream Cup. She completes the look by adding lip gloss for the perfect pout.
