7 Beauty Tips for Beginners
Looking for simple beauty tips to help improve your skin? We’ve got you covered. We have combined a list of 7 main tips to help you look fresh and natural everyday.
1. Cleansing, Toning, Moisturising (CTM)
One of the biggest steps in making sure that your skin is as healthy as it can be, is following CTM. The order of cleansing, toning and moisturising is compulsory before applying any type of makeup as well as taking off makeup before going to bed. When applying cleanser and toner, it removes any excess oil from your face, which allows the moisturiser to give a healthy glow to your look.

2. Quality Products
The second tip in ensuring healthy skin is using quality products. These products may not be extremely expensive products, but they should have good reviews and match your skin type. Purchasing low-quality products may damage your skin and may not last long, compared to higher quality products.
3. Applying Sunscreen
Tip number 3, applying sunscreen. This may be one of the most useful tip, when taking care of your skin. Many individuals disregard this step if the weather outside is far from sunny. However, applying sunscreen protects your skin from the damage that could be caused. It is highly recommended to use products that contain a high SPF number.
4. Clean Make-up Brushes
This tip is not necessarily required everyday, however, a good cleanse of your makeup brushes frequently can avoid spreading bacteria and oil around your face. The easiest way to clean your brushes is by running the brushes through lukewarm water, then applying some cleansing gel on to the bristles. Then rinsing the bristles under lukewarm water again and then wiping it gently on a clean hand towel.
5. Apply Moisturiser Before Any Heavy Powder
Making sure that your skin is slightly moisturised before applying any powder, concealer or foundation, stops your skin from drying out. The moisturiser acts as a base to allow the concealer and foundation to give a smooth look. Using setting powder on top of moisturiser also helps your concealer and foundation last longer.
6. Never Sleep with Make-up On
The biggest rule in the beauty/skincare industry is to NEVER ever sleep with any makeup on. This is crucial as sleeping with makeup on can damage your skin and enhance any sort of acne or skin irritation. Sleeping with makeup on essentially traps any sort of dirt or unwanted debris that clogs your pores, and eventually causes breakouts.
7. Exfoliate Your Lips Before Applying Lipstick
Exfoliating your lips before applying any lip colour, helps create a smooth and soft surface. Applying lip balm, after exfoliating, moisturises your lips and prevents them from chapping. However, exfoliating your lips should not be done more than once a week as exfoliating too much can cause irritation.
