We all have those beauty lessons that we have been taught over the years. Lessons that have been passed down from our mothers and our grandmothers, or the lessons that we picked up through years of pouring over magazines. But while we may have many of these lessons that we follow religiously, there are also those that, while we know they are important, we just don’t manage to follow.
Removing makeup at night.
Ah this is one of those lessons that I try so hard to follow, yet you can guarantee I will slip up at least once a month. Those slips normally happen when I’ve had one too many cocktails which further adds to the destroyal of my skin.
Ps… Does anybody else get ridiculously proud the morning after a night out if they’ve woken up to discover they took their makeup off?
Cleaning brushes at least once a week.
The previous rule is one that I tend to slip up on only once a month, but cleaning my brushes is something I slip up on most weeks. I know it’s disgusting, but I can go weeks without cleaning my brushes. I’m just too lazy. The only plus side is I have so many brushes I can normally find a fairly clean one to use!
Sticking to make-up expiration dates
Ok, lets be honest. How many of us actually stick to these dates? I mean, chucking out a mascara after 6 months? An eyeshadow after two? I do not spend all my money on eyeshadow palettes just to throw them away 2 years later. I bought my first MAC eyeshadow 6 years ago and I am still using it. Not even guilty.
Drink 8 glasses of water a day
I try, I really do. But I just can’t get it into my routine. Even when I buy myself a litre bottle of water to drink over the course of the day, I just forget about it. I’m a terrible person when it comes to drinking in general. I can go most of the day without drinking anything beyond a cup of coffee first thing. Is it any wonder I get headaches?
Don’t share mascara/eyeliner
I know it can lead to infections, but if my friends ask me for my mascara, you can rest assured I’m giving them it.
