You must have read and seen different beauty rules that have now become a written norm in your mind. This is not to break completely the beauty rules, but a mild breaking of beauty chains, because nobody should tell women what to do.
Here are 3 beauty rules that you need to readjust:
1. Mascara is only for your eyes
We all know that mascara can be applied to your bottom lashes as well as your top ones, not only is it on-trend, it’s eye-opening enough to flatter everyone.
Mascara can also be used to cover grey hairs, and, because it’s a waxy substance, it actually holds your hair into place. It is used on hair for emergency use only.
2. Lock in your moisturiser
Beauty lore states that cream must be applied immediately after exiting the shower or bath to ‘lock in’ moisture. A far better alternative is to apply moisturiser seconds before you hop in the shower or bath. And that way, when you shave, you have a built-in lubricant.
3. Apply concealer on top of your foundation
Apparently, you’re meant to always apply concealer on top of your foundation and make it a shade lighter. But it’s perfectly acceptable to apply your concealer underneath your tinted moisturiser. You don’t even have to make it a shade lighter.
