It's finally here, the one time of year that has everyone ready for good friends, family, and food—it's the holiday season! Without a doubt, you'll be drop-dead gorgeous going to your Evergreen or Yuletide party, but unless you want to end up looking like the Abominable Snowman the following morning, there are a few skin care tips that you need to pay attention to.
Check out these three makeup tips to make sure you don't get left out of all those reindeer games:
Don't Skimp on Your Makeup Brand
You might be tempted to get your makeup at the same place you bought your elf outfit. Don't! The cheap kinds of makeup they sell at costume stores won't do your facial skin any favors. The dyes in such products might make your outfit look fierce, but other ingredients will lead to something truly chilling—clogged pores! Instead, spend a little more money on makeup that won't block your skin's natural beauty. If you're dressing up as your favorite holiday character, you can find noncomedogenic, hypoallergenic theater makeup online and at certain makeup stores.
Block Makeup Dye Absorption
Even if you use professional-grade makeup to pull off your holiday outfit, the color from the dyes can still seep into your skin. To keep yourself from looking like Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, apply a barrier cream before putting on your makeup. Unlike a regular cosmetic primer, a barrier cream will prevent any dyes and chemicals in the product from penetrating your pores. You may have to do some serious searching, though, because barrier creams are usually only sold by professional makeup suppliers online and at specialty stores.
Reveal Your Pretty
All good things must come to an end, and holiday parties are no different. When removing your makeup, first apply a cold cream to your face. Taking this simple step before going through your regular face-washing and cleansing routine will help to break down the oils and other ingredients in the makeup. Once you have massaged the cold cream onto your face, use a washcloth to wipe off the makeup, and follow with your normal face-cleansing ritual. The best way to restore your complexion to its natural beauty is to finish with our Pretty Extra for acne treatment or our Pretty Plus Tax to help even skin tone.
Now that you know how to care properly for your skin this holiday season, you can be as fierce as you want to be without the fear of damaging any of your face's pretty. No matter if you're dressing up as Mrs. Claus or just going through your normal makeup routine, with Pretty Biznez as part of your beauty regimen, you can be sure that your pretty won't fade or go out of style.
