Discovering new beauty tips and hacks is always a fun process, thanks to our Beauty Ambassadors who have been actively contributing their tips that can change our life. Today, we will be featuring Siti’s favourite beauty tips!
1. Store Your Makeup Products At The Right Place
The most important thing I always pay attention to - how I store my makeup products. We all know that makeup products have expiration dates and sometimes we might have to get rid of some of the products before of their expiration date as they spoil easily due to Singapore’s hot and humid climate. Therefore, it is important to keep your babies in a cool and dry place. Put them away from heat and windows.
2. Blend, Blend & Blend
When applying foundation, I always concentrate on areas that needs more coverage, this includes under my eyes and my T-zone. Then, I will just keep blending them outwards. This way, it will make my foundation looks more natural rather than cakey.
3. Get Rid of Dry & Flaky Lips in Less Than 5 Minutes
Always exfoliate your lips! You may own that perfect shade of lipstick, but it just won’t look good on your lips if its dry and flaking. Peeling away those hanging skin on the lips with your bare fingers usually make it even worse. My tip - create a DIY lip scrub! Simply mix a small amount of lip balm or petroleum jelly with a pinch of sugar! Apply them on the lips and let it stay for a few minutes before wiping off the remaining. This will leave you with soft, smooth and plump looking lips. I personally prefer sugar scrubs over anything else as the particles are generally smaller and more hydrating that comes along with a sweet scent.
4. Never Toss Away Dried Up Mascaras
I have never thrown away all my dried up mascaras just because it has dried up. Instead, I always add a few drops of saline solution or eye drops into those mascaras. This helps to moist up the dried mascara and it works just as new! Not only that, I always keep extra mascara wands that are no longer in used. These extra mascara wands are super useful when you just need an extra spooly brush for your eyebrows!
5. Remove Your Makeup Before Bedtime
ALWAYS, ALWAYS remove your makeup before you hit the sack! Leaving your makeup on results in clogged pores and not allowing your skin to breathe and repair at night. Always make it a habit to remove your makeup as your daily skin care routine cause not only it wipes off your makeup, it washes away the impurities and dirt from the surface of your skin! To top it off, I will complete my night time skincare regimen with a toner and moisturizer. This helps in hydrating my skin while I’m asleep!
