Even makeup professionals have questions about beauty, so it is no surprise that the average woman might experience much of the same. Skin changes, so we certainly do not learn the answers to everything as we grow and go through different stages of life. At the same time, so many fads in makeup applications have come and gone in previous years too. Here are the answers to some of those ageless questions about beauty at long last.



Layering the Products

Many women question whether or not they apply their makeup in the right order of layers. This concern exists twofold as some styles of doing makeup come and go. There is one, age-old method that works though. Start off with moisturizer and then apply sunscreen before going to primer. Then use tinted foundation or BB cream, followed up by concealer. Next, apply powder, highlighter, brows, eye makeup, and then mascara and then mascara and lip makeup.

Dealing with Those Scars and Wrinkles

Some of the best products on the market work as a primer for acne scars and various facial wrinkles. Most of these products are made by Smashbox. The best combination is their Photo Finish and Pore Minimizing treatments. The first smooths skin and prevents it from becoming oily. It also enhances a stable foundation for other makeup too. The latter works well for filling in pores that have been damaged or became larger.

Loving on Dry Skin

Those of us with dry skin have more problems to concern ourselves with than most. We need special products to help us out in as many areas as possible. Essentially, hydration is the key component to combating dry skin. First Aid Beauty Coconut Priming Moisturizer is one of the best products to use for this purpose. It is a primer that doubles as a moisturizer, thus powerfully combining two layers into one application.

Speaking of Eyes and their Lashes

Taking care of makeup can be rather trying. The most troublesome part has to be those false lashes. The first step to perfect lashes is to have good, clear glue. Try applying the glue from the inner lid and outward. Take it slow when it comes to applying them. Slow and steady wins the race here. Starting at the inner corner of the eye once the glue has been applied, line up the eyelashes with the natural lash line. A fine amount of glue will hold them in tightly.

Removing Eye Makeup with Ease

So many types of eye makeup are difficult to remove. The problem is doubly troubling for people who are sensitive to alcohol and other cleansers in face wash products. One of the newest products to the market takes care of eye makeup removal without having to consider those sensitivities. Micellar water works easily to take off any makeup. It can just be applied to a cotton pad, which can then be used to wipe away any product left on the skin. It will take most makeup products off with the first wipe, so not a lot of this product need to be applied for competent use.

It's also a really good idea to use Shea Butter on the skin after makeup use, to keep the skin firm, smooth and moisturized. Shea Butter is also a natural antibacterial, and anti-fungal so it's great for fighting blemishes, acne and even folliculitis. But finding the right type is the most important, and you always want to go all-natural with your shea butter, which is why smaller family owned companies like Eugenia Shea are the smartest choice.

Conclusion

There are so many ways to make the secrets of makeup a weapon to wield with grace. Not everything has to be made clear, but these five items will give you a glimpse into some of the greatest mastery known. Soon you will be able to work like a professional artist when you are using these tips.
