How to find your perfect foundation shade!
One of the biggest struggles within the makeup world as we all know is finding the right foundation shade. No one wants a big orange line along their jawline and a pale white neck, that is a no go! Isn’t it just the worst when you think you’ve found the right shade but you end up looking like a pale ghost? I myself am very fair skinned, meaning I always go to the lightest shades but end up looking as white as a sheet! But it doesn't end there, finding the right formula is tricky too. Some foundations can make your skin look flaky, oily or patchy. Many people who are just learning about mineral makeup may dread the thought of finding their right shade because it’s hard enough finding liquid foundation shade, so wouldn't it be just as hard or even harder with loose powder? Well it’s not, I find it a lot easier to find a shade that matches my skin tone perfectly with the help of NCinc’s colour guide.
Goodbye summer, hello Autumn! Who doesn't love Autumn? The dark cold nights and pumpkin spice lattes. My favourite thing about Autumn is the changing colours of the leaves, the orange and browns give me the best inspiration for Autumn makeup looks. It's time to ditch the bright eye-shadow and lipsticks, I'm ready to see dark smokey looks! In this blog I am going to be giving you some makeup tips as well as overall skin care tips for the cooler weather. If you have never attempted an Autumn look, you can go and check out our blog Easy Mineral Makeup Look For Autumn With NCinc Products.
Tips for oily skin
Having oily skin is the worst! I suffer with oily skin and it has taken me a long time find the right products and tips that help me keep my oily skin under control. In this blog I'm going to be sharing my tips with you!
My first tip is simply washing your face. It's that easy, at least two to three times a week you should be using a gentle exfoliating scrub to wash your face. The exfoliating scrub will remove any oil and dirt that are clogging your pores, also the scrub will remove dead skin from the surface of your face leaving your skin smooth and clean. As well as exfoliating it's important to use a gentle face wash daily to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy especially on the days you won't be exfoliating!
How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes
How often do you clean your makeup brushes? You should be cleaning your makeup brushes thoroughly at least every two weeks! In this blog I'm going to tell you why it's important to keep your makeup tools clean and how to correctly wash them!
Cleaning your makeup brushes plays a bigger part when you are applying your makeup than you might think. Reusing unwashed makeup tools can leave you with an uneven application, even causing acne break-outs and blackheads from the oils that still linger in your brushes. As the inside of your makeup sponges and brushes hold so many chemicals and bacteria from the products you use that you can't see.
Should I Be Double Cleansing?
You are probably thinking why do I have to double cleanse? isn't once enough? Well it's not! In this blog I will be telling you why it's important to double cleanse and how to do it.
