How Often Should I Wash My Makeup Brush?
Regardless of how often you are using your makeup brushes, we recommended that you wash your tools at least once a month.
Your brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with soapy warm water and finish with a blow dryer if desired.
Is It Unsafe To Line The Inner Rim Of My Eye?
Although this is not a risky technique, there are some things you need to know to do this correctly.
Never use a pencil that has not been properly cleaned, as this is an easy technique that could lead to an infection in the eye. Be sure to also sharpen the pencil after every use to lower your risk for contamination.
If I Mix Products, Will It Make Them Less Effective?
Remember, when it comes to makeup, there are no rules! Go ahead and mix those moisturizers with your favorite foundations and just remember to have fun!
When it comes to skin care, be sure not to mix sunscreen with other products. You don’t want to dilute the skin protecting chemicals. Layering is key!
Do I Need To Toss My Lipstick After A Cold?
Step away from that trash bin. Unless you have strep throat, this is not really necessary.
Common flu germs do not have a long lifespan when it comes to living on inanimate objects; so don’t shun your favorite lipstick after feeling a little under the weather.
How Do I Achieve A Natural Look With My Blush?
This is easier than you think. Take a buffer brush after applying your blush and use it to brush on powder foundation. (The talc and fragrance free formula in Magic Minerals is perfect for this.)
By blending in the foundation with your blush, you will be able to achieve the natural splash of color you desire!
