You’re Doing It Right… Or Are You? 5 Common Beauty Myths Debunked!

Are you sure that lip liners really make your lips look bigger like Kylie Jenner’s? What about choosing the right foundation for your skin tone? We’re getting things straight with some of the most common beauty myths that we’ve heard.

Myth #1 : “Make your lips look bigger with a darker lip pencil.”

TRUE, IF DONE RIGHT! Lining your lips ensure staying power, but to be safe, choose a shade that is closest to your natural lip colour, or go lighter, and fill in your entire lip. Go for Sephora’s Nano Lip Liner (RM30) to get you lined up — but if you insist on using a dark lipliner, the experts always make sure to blend well. Whatever it is, a visible dark line is a forbidden.


Myth #2 : “Curl your lashes after you apply mascara for more volume.”

TRUE, BUT DON’T DO IT! Yes, your lashes may look thicker if you put on coats of mascara before curling them. But if you recklessly curl after applying mascara, you could rip out your eyelashes. Ouch! No worries, the Clinique Lash Power Flutter to Full Mascara (RM99) does wonders with just a single comb through the lashes — eyelash curlers are no longer necessary at this point. *wink*

Cold shoulder ?

FALSE! It’s 2017, baby — it’s okay to experiment. Especially if you want to step out of your comfort zone, you can afford to go bold on more than one feature. Be brave and rock a red lipstick or stain with a subtle smokey eye. So, what’s the combo? Create that smoldering smokey eyes using the  Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad (RM129) and seal the look with a bright red lipstick by Shiseido Rouge Rouge In Real Ruby (RM103).

Myth #4 : “Use a darker shade of foundation for evening events.”

FALSE! Yikes, where did this even come from? Always — and we mean ALWAYS — use a foundation that blends well with your skin tone. The trick is to swatch-test the foundation on your jawline, not on your hand. If it disappears, it’s a match!

Myth #5 : “Lining the eye rims will make my eyes look bigger.”

Okay I don't know why I'm the most inactive thing but I need to change that btw thank you for 60k?

TRUE! But a more modern update is to add a bit of brightness into the inner corners of your eyes. Instead of using your usual black eyeliner, why not apply a brighter colour instead? A light-toned concealer pencil also works to make your eyes look more awake and refreshed.
