Touchup Tricks!

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

You probably invest a good amount of time into putting yourself together and looking your best each morning. But as soon as you walk outside, with all the pollution and things in the air, your skin becomes saturated with a ton of free radicals like dirt and oil. At some point, you’ll probably want to touch up your makeup, but it’s important that you try to remove some of that junk from your skin first. Using an oil-blotting sheet or tissue on your face should help reduce the transfer of bacteria by lifting off the excess oil from your skin. The most beneficial ones are the sheets infused with tea tree oil (not sheets that are powder-coated), which can help with removing some of the bacteria.

After dabbing your skin with an oil-blotting sheet or tissue, begin with a multipurpose product, like a multicolored powder that can be used in many ways on your face or a lipstick that can be used as a blush substitute. Add or fix your color where needed and then take a mattifying liquid,  put it into the palm of your hand, and mix it with a bit of antibacterialgel then press that on top of your makeup. Doing this will actually make it look like you’ve taken out a brush and put more powder on to give yourself a refreshed appearance

I couldn't live without oil-blotting sheets. I have terribly oily skin.

I'm going to have to buy some oil blotting sheets because I have noticed while touching up my makeup it doesn't look as "fresh" as it did when I initially put it on. Thanks for the tip.

Put hand sanitizer on your face? Are you joking? Where are you getting these ideas from? The level of alcohol in hand sanitizer will damage sensitive skin and if you happen to be wearing a silicone based foundation it will change the molecular structure into something plastic-like. Seriously, this is two blogs in the past week with potentially dangerous, un-researched information. Either get your facts straight or stop posting.

I recently bought two packs of the ELF Oil Blotting Sheets and I LOVE them! When I made another order I purchased two more, just to have extras!

I never knew that you shouldn't use sheets with powder in them. I guess it's good I read this because I don't want to spread the bacteria on my face and break-out. Thanks ELF!!
