Hey guys,
Today I want to share some basic beauty tips whit you. I think you all know the most things, but for the ones who don't know: this will be an eye opener!



The expiration date
I want to start with telling you that all make-up products have an expiration date. When a product  passes that date it might give you health problems. Like mascara is a product which you can only keep for 3 months, when you have it longer it's going to be a home for bacteria. It's going to smell bad and irritate your eye. That's the last thing you want, isn't it?

An overview: 
Foundation: 3-6 months
Wand applicator concealers: 6 months.
Stick, twist-up tubes, and compact concealers: 12 months.
Facial powder, blush and eyeshadow: one year.
Lip gloss and lipstick: 1 year
Mascara: 3 months.
Eye and lip pencils: a year or longer, when you sharpen them every few days. When they become dry, crumbly, or hard to apply then it's time to throw them away!
Natural cosmetics: These products mostly have an expiration date on it, when they don't they should be thrown away within 6 months. 

Cleaning your brushes
Something which is also very important is to clean your brushes. If you have clean make-up and dirty brushes your make-up will also get dirty and you can throw the products away earlier. So to use the products as long as possible you need to make sure that your brushes are clean! 

The brush cleansing tips I have for you: 
★ Never let your brushes dry with the brush side on top! The best way to let your brushes dry is in a brush protector like Brush Guard, so you can let the brushes dry in a cup with the brush side at the bottom.  Like this:

If the brush hairs don't feel soft anymore you can mix a little oil into your brush cleanser to make them soft again. Notice not to use to much oil at once!
  
 I also want to share this video with you about brush cleansing:


Curly hair with a flat iron 
This is a trick many girls don't know, I think it's more easy to do than with a curling iron. The best way to learn how to get curly hair with a flat iron is to see how it works, so I searched for a good explained video on youtube and found it. If this video isn't enough information for you, just enter ''How to Curl Your Hair with a Straightener'' at youtube, and you'll find many of videos. :)


I hope you enjoyed this beauty tricks, and let me know if you want to see more. :)
