Makeup Routine: Picking Your Products
When it comes to makeup, there are countless products on the market. With so many options, it can be overwhelming to try and decide what to use. This is especially true if you are just starting to wear makeup. However, there are a few steps you can take to help narrow down your choices and build a routine that works for you.
First, take into consideration your skin type and any concerns you may have. Do you have dry skin? Oily skin? Do you have breakouts? These are all things that will help you decide what products to use.
Next, do a little research and find out what brands offer quality, cruelty-free products. Think about what products you want to use and find the brands that offer products in those categories. For example, if you are looking for a foundation, you may want to try different types of foundations from different brands until you find one that works for you.
Once you have found your favorite, stick with it! You don’t want to waste money on products that are not good for your skin. Another thing to keep in mind is the price of the products.
What are the basic makeup products?
Picking your makeup products doesn't have to be hard. Whether you're just getting started with a makeup routine, or you're looking to simplify the products you use, there are a few basics that every good makeup routine should include.
A good foundation is the key to a flawless complexion. It evens out skin tone and covers blemishes. If you have oily skin, look for a foundation that's oil-free or mattifying. For dry skin, choose a hydrating foundation.
Concealer is another must-have product. It covers dark circles and blemishes, and can brighten up your whole complexion. Look for a concealer that's slightly lighter than your natural skin tone for the best results.
Finally, no makeup routine is complete without powder and mascara.
What Makeup Products Do I Need For Contouring
There are a few essential makeup products you need for contouring. First, you need a foundation that’s two shades darker than your skin tone. Second, you need a highlighter that’s two shades lighter than your skin tone. Third, you need a contouring powder or cream. And fourth, you need a setting powder.
To start your contouring routine, first, apply your foundation all over your face. Then, using a damp beauty blender, apply the darker shade of foundation along your jawline, down the sides of your nose, and in the hollows of your cheeks.
Next, apply the highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow.

Can we use Expired Makeup Products
Yes, You Can Use Expired Makeup Products
We all have that one makeup item that we just can't seem to let go of. Even though it's been well past its expiration date, we continue to hold on to it because we just can't bring ourselves to part with it. But what if we told you that you could actually keep using expired makeup products?
It turns out that there are a few ways to tell if your makeup is still good even after its expiration date. First, take a close look at the texture and consistency of the product. If it has changed significantly, then it's probably time to toss it. However, if the texture and consistency are still the same, then the product is probably still good to use.
Another way to tell if your makeup is still good is by smelling it. If it smells strange, then it's probably time to throw it out. If not, then you're good to go.
Makeup can be expensive and we don't want to waste any of our products!
How Long Do Makeup Products Last
Assuming you are talking about store-bought makeup products with an expiration date:
Foundation, powder, and eyeshadow can last up to two years. mascara expires after three months due to the bacteria that can develop in the product over time. Lipstick and lipliner have a shelf life of one year.
There are a few things you can do to make your makeup last longer. First, always close the cap tightly on all of your products after each use. This will prevent any air or bacteria from getting inside and ruining the product. Second, don’t share your makeup with anyone else.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but sharing makeup is one of the quickest ways to contaminate it and shorten its lifespan. Finally, store your makeup in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
We recommend storing it in a makeup bag that is separate from anything else and keeping that bag in a drawer. This will keep your makeup away from dirt, dust, lint, etc., which can cause breakouts or infections.
