7 Tips and Tricks All Beauty Lovers Should Master

Throughout the years, we’ve seen just how quickly beauty fads change. We’ve witnessed the industry’s evolution, from yesteryears’ contouring and highlighting trends to today’s more natural, glowy looks. That said, the fundamentals of beauty pretty much stay the same. After all, whichever look you’re going for, you still need to know the basics of taking proper care of your skin, or of picking out shades that work wonders for your skin tone.

7 Tips and Tricks All Beauty Lovers Should Master

7. Wear Sunscreen Even When Indoors

Rain or shine, it’s important to protect your skin against harmful UV rays. If you’re indoors, keep in mind that these rays can still penetrate windows. After your morning skincare, apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

6. Gently Pat On Your Skincare

When doing your skincare routine, squeeze a generous amount onto your fingertips and softly pat—don’t rub—onto your face. A patting motion is more gentle on the skin. For thin skin surrounding the eye area, use your ring finger to help prevent wrinkles.

5. Don’t Use Shampoo Everyday

Did you know that shampooing every day actually strips the scalp of natural oils? Try shampooing every other day instead. During the days in between, spritz a product onto sections of your hair for fragrant, floral-scented tresses.

4. Avoid Applying Too Much Mascara

If clumpy spider lashes are the bane of your existence, here’s a little trick: always wipe off excess product on your mascara wand before wiggling it onto your lashes.

3. Make Your Foundation Look Like Second Skin

Prior to applying foundation, create a glowing canvas by moisturizing your skin. Next, buff in your foundation of choice, blending from the center of your face outward.

If you take a look into a Filipina’s makeup bag, you’ll most probably find a lip tint. For smooth, juicy lips, exfoliate gently and swipe on a lip balm. Then, apply the tint to the center of your lips and use your finger to diffuse the color.
