It’s in your 20’s when you’re too excited about living an adult life. Although by that time you’re expected to know many things referring to your profession and your further plans you’re still considered a beginner in the makeup world. Well, that’s not something to worry about as there are some makeup basics that once you find out you’ll have the right to consider yourself competent in the topic. To help you with that we have rounded up a list of necessary beauty tips that any girl needs to know in her 20’s.
1. Sunscreen is a Must
Whether you decided to wear heavy makeup or go for a #nomakeup look, one this is sure-sunscreen is a must. So always start your makeup routine with a sunscreen and always check to see whether it’s the right formula for that season.
2. Experiment with Different Colors and Styles
It’s the best way to find what works for you and what doesn’t. So don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and styles to find the perfect option for your case.
3. Contour Properly
Never go overboard with bronzer because that will lead you to having a weird look. Remember contouring is good as long as it’s done properly.
4. Combine Moisturizer with Foundation for Smoother Effects
Add a few drops of moisturizer to your foundation and then apply the mixture all over your face to get smoother and better effects.
5. Skip Conditioning if you Have Oily Hair
Or at least limit down to once a week in order to protect your hair. Another thing that you can do to get the desired results without boosting oil production is applying conditioner to your hair starting from mid-shafts going all the way down the ends.
6. DIY Recipes are Worth Trying
In some cases DIY recipes are more preferable than specific treatments. Especially when dealing with sensitive skin type a DIY treatment made of all-natural ingredients seems to be the best option to go for.
7. Throw Away Expired Mascara
The longest that mascara can last is about three or four months. So even if your tube of mascara is full you have to throw it away after three months. Remember your health is more valuable than your favorite label’s mascara.
8. Know How to Create the Perfect Bedhead Look
