Things I’ve Learned Since 18 (Beauty Edition)


Things I’ve Learned Since 18 (Beauty Edition) // I’m not sure if you guys know this about me, but I wasn’t a makeup maven until I was 18! That was 5 years ago! I was a late bloomer when it came to building my style and learning about makeup!

Sarah from More than Adored, recently posted about some blogging ideas and one of her suggestions was “Beauty Lessons Learned”, I thought this was a great post to talk about and also do a small trip memory lane! That way I can reflect on how much I’ve changed through the years with my taste in makeup!

Here’s 10 Beauty Lessons Learned that I’ve known since I was 18.

1. To never ever skip washing your face (especially after wearing makeup all day)

2. Less is more! More so when it comes to contouring!

3. Using colours opposite to your eye colour in the colour wheel makes your eyes pop!

4. Applying your eye cream twice a day and to massage the eye area in the morning to break up any congestion beneath the skin.

5. Lip liner is your best friend, if your lipstick tends to bleed out~

6. To match your foundation to your neck not your face

7.Β After applying under eye concealer, grab a tissue tap of the excess and using a wet sponge pat over the area, makes it less creasy and more natural finish

8. Don’t use too much of anything black at the one time near the eyes…if you do the results resemble a panda

9. It’s never too early to start using anti-ageing products (both makeup and skincare)

10. To invest in your skincare, because a clear, smooth surface is natural! Also easier to apply makeup πŸ™‚

    I agree; I’ve definitely learnt to invest more in good skincare products and stop relying on face wipes so much. I love Clinique 3 Step! I’d say since 18 I have mastered my eyebrows and have also learnt that when it comes to lashes, falsies look a lot nicer when they are more natural xx

    • Likewise! I believe that in order for our makeup to look good, we must have a good canvas to work with. I love makeup but I will always invest more on skincare. πŸ™‚

    • That’s awesome at 18 you mastered your eyebrows!! I took so long to get those things in order hahah! x

  • I wholeheartedly agree with #9. I think I was one of the few out of my circle of friends who actually started using anti-aging products a couple of years back. I want to say I started around 21 or 22 years old… and I remember asking a beauty consultant for advice on their products and she looked at me like I was crazy. She even asked if it was for me or for my mother. Funny, huh?! Anyway, do you have a favorite skincare brand when it comes to anti-aging?

    • That’s crazy about your beauty consultant! I actually use to use the L’oreal skincare products for anti ageing! Those are so affordable and I feel like it gives good results! Thanks for reading Rosalyn!
