Everyone has a morning beauty routine that can be mastered, but what happens when you come across an unexpected make-up problem? If your make-up is starting to go bad, instead of throwing it away and running to the store, try these tips to help make your make-up last longer.
1. Problem- Clumpy Mascara. Anytime you have clumpy mascara you think, its time to get a new one, well now you you can wait a few more weeks to get that new mascara. To get rid of the clumps, run the brush over a microfiber cloth until the brush is clean. When you apply the mascara, put the wand at the base of the lashes, and twirl up as you separate the lashes. You can prevent clumps by swirling the wand as you remove it from the tube, to keep from getting mascara on the wand. Then wipe the access mascara on the top of the tube, as you finish pulling it out. You should replace your mascara every three months.
2. Problem- Cakey Foundation. If your foundation is drying out and you don’t have time to buy a new one, apply a dab of lotion on your hand and apply to dry areas to smooth it out. You can prevent cakey foundation by using a make-up primer before your foundation, or you can skip the foundation and just use a concealer on the areas needed. You can change your foundation at anytime.
3. Problem- Chipped Polish. If you get a manicure, and the next day you notice a chip, instead of removing the polish, put a dab or polish on the chipped spot. Once the polish dries, seal it with a top coat. The top coat will smooth out any unevenness you may have, and give it an extra shine. To keep polish from chipping wear gloves while cleaning, try typing with the pads of your fingers, and file your nails round. If your nails are more pointed, there more able to chip. Also if you have problems with your nail polish becoming to clumpy, add a few drops of nail polish remover and gently shake polish. It will help extend the use of the polish, but does not always work. If it does not work, then its time to throw the polish away. Some polishes can last years, while others only last a year.
I hope these tips helped you, stay tuned for more easy make-up saving fixes.
