De­bunk­ing Makeup Myths

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

Myth #1

Primers and mois­turis­ers work in the same way.

FACT

Both are hy­drat­ing – but mois­turis­ers ab­sorb into skin to hy­drate it, while primers sit on top of skin to pro­vide a smooth base for makeup ap­pli­ca­tion.

Myth #2

Foun­da­tion colour should be tested on the wrist.

FACT

The wrist is one of the light­est parts on your body, so it isn’t ideal for foun­da­tion match­ing. The best place to colour-test is along the jaw­line.

Myth #3

Wear­ing makeup can cause break-outs.

FACT

Prod­ucts aren’t al­ways the cul­prits – poor stor­age and lack of hy­giene are. To pre­vent break­outs, wash brushes and sponges reg­u­larly. And chuck old makeup!
