5 Makeup Rules That Turned Out To Be Nothing But Myths. In a bid to explore and enhance our beauty, we rely on the internet for some useful tips. As it turns, not all information on the net can really be that good.
Some makeup tips have been shrouded in myths and we uncovered some of them for you.
Myth #1: Red lipstick is not for everyone
Fact: This is 110% false. Red lipstick suits everyone, and all we need to do is to choose the right shade.
Myth #2: We should throw mascara away when it dries
Fact: Mascara’s shelf life is 3 months after the first use because this cosmetic product is the easiest way to pick up an eye infection. Over time, mascara becomes a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which can get into eyes.
Myth #3: If you dip a mascara wand into the tube several times, you can get rid of lumps
Fact: This is how air bubbles get into the tube and reduce the life of your mascara. Just dip the wand into the tube and twist it.
Myth #4: You don’t really need to remove makeup before going to bed
Fact: Our skin regenerates, moisturizes, and becomes fresher while sleeping. If you leave your makeup on overnight, your pores will clog and it can lead to skin dehydration and infections.
Myth #5: Cosmetics don’t have an expiration date and can be used until they run out
Fact: No, and no again! The majority of cosmetic products have a shelf life, and the manufacturers always print it on labels using a special sign. The countdown starts as soon as you open the product.
