The 2000s makeup trends are synonymous with embarrassment for many young people. Remember the weird eyeshadow trends and the orange unblended foundation?
Some of these trends can be associated with the era, but others are incorrect product use, or faulty application techniques. Young people don't know how to use products correctly.
Fortunately, makeup trends have evolved over the years
Start with skin care.
One of the biggest makeup mistakes is not related to makeup. It's important to start with skincare before reaching for your bag.
If you don't prepare your skin before applying makeup, you could experience foundation issues. If you have an oily skin type, foundation and eyeshadow products might not last as long as they should. If you don't start with skincare, your skin will become prone to breaking out due to the lack of protective layers to keep the skin clean.
You should cleanse with a cleanser for your skin type. Next, apply a toner. Follow with your skin care products. Allow each product to be fully absorbed.
The Importance Of Priming Skin
Primer products emerged on the market, and beauty vloggers quickly noted the big difference this affordable product can make.
Primer serves as a layer of skin protection and your foundation will blend better. As this product smoothes the skin, the size of the pores is minimized.
This single product will ensure your eyeshadow lasts longer, so it is worth using an eye primer. The primer gives the next layer of product something to stick to, so all your products will last substantially longer. Product application is enhanced with eye primer products. Quality eyeshadows are good for your skin.
You can find your skin type and tone.
The quality of the products you use is just as important as the types of them. If your skin is oily or combination. If you use foundation products for normal skin types, you will be battling constant breakouts, a foundation that slides, and shiny skin. Oily skin needs a foundation product to control oil production.
If you have normal or dry skin and use a foundation for oily skin, you will struggle with it. You will notice a huge difference in your skin appearance and makeup application if you use suitable products.
Line your lips.
Lipstick has the power to elevate your look instantly. It's a common issue with lipstick applications that they can't get crisp lines. If you don't use a lip liner before applying lipstick, you'll be in a lot of trouble.
Perfect lipstick application depends on lip liner. If you struggle, use lip liner guiding tools. It is best to line your lips slightly above your natural lip line.
Lining lips higher can give you a full look, but only for selfies or videos. Lining lips too high up is a mistake that can be seen in real life.
Quality is the top priority.
At some point, we have all skimped on the quality of the product in hopes that a cheaper product will deliver the same results. Lower quality products block pores due to higher ingredient usage.
Quality brands that showcase cruelty-free, organic, vegan, or eco-friendly elements are what you should look for when shopping for cosmetics. These types of products are best for skin health, animals are not harmed in the production process, and the planet's future is considered. That is enough reason to avoid inferior quality products.
