Make Up Bag Clearout
Hi Lovelies! Do you ever feel like you have to overhaul your makeup bag or beauty routine when the seasons change between Spring and Summer to Autumn and Winter? The changes in weather, temperature, humidity and more mean that perhaps we need more moisture, or a different shade of foundation because of time in the sunshine. We can often overlook the need to clearout our makeup bags and consider these factors – but not only can our skin suffer if we don’t, we can also lose money on things we don’t need. So Ana Ospina teamed up with Maxeen Kim Photography to bring you this fab feature today. Ana is the Creative Director and Owner of BEAUT, and is here to offer her expert advice to you and a lovely discount for B.LOVED readers at BEAUT! Over to Ana…
“I have worked in the cosmetics industry for 25 years now, some of those were spent working on make up counters in the top beauty halls in London and a vast majority as a freelance make up artist working on private clients for events, for bridal work and most recently as owner and head make up artist of my very own make up studio BEAUT. What I have found time and time again having given makeovers to hundreds if not thousands of women is that the majority of make up wearing women fall into three categories when it comes to the contents of their make up bag.
Here are my 5 Top Beauty & Make Up Tips:
1. Invest in your skin! A good skincare regime makes all the difference to your appearance and the added bonus is your make up will always look better if your face has had a little tlc
2. You need the right tools to apply your lovely make up, I recommend getting a nice set of make up brushes, an eyelash curler, a beauty blender, a powder puff and a sharpener to make sure you can achieve great make up looks.
3. When out for the evening try to take multi purpose products such as a lip and check tints and take oil absorbing papers to cut out shine as your little clutch bag might not fit your usual make up bag.
4. Have brows done professionally at least every three months and maintain in between by pulling at the little strays with tweezers once you’ve had a nice shape done.
5. Wash your make up bag once every three months and your make up brushes once a week. Just pop your make up bag in the washing machine or wipe clean at least if that’s not possible and wash your make up brushes with a mild shampoo or brush soap. Bacteria breeds quickly especially on your cream products so keep your make up as clean as possible with a wipe down with sanitising wipes too.
