Makeup is not a new trend but has been with us for many years. Women used makeup to make themselves look more beautiful. The idea of using natural items like flower petals, seeds, etc., was great, these, when found were crushed, mixed, and applied to achieve a variety of makeup looks.

Makeup used to be dangerous and continuous application caused great damage to the skin. This was due to the harsh and poisonous ingredients used in making the products.

Today however, (thank goodness!) companies go through clinical testing and use better ingredients in product formulation. We can now safely put on our favorite makeup products with no worries. As if that’s not enough, some come with skincare benefits!

Makeup isn’t totally bad for your skin, but it can cause problems if you practice unhealthy makeup habits. Developing a simple skincare routine will help create a safe environment for your skin. Even though these are simple tips, they’ll help save you from unwanted skin conditions like acne, aging, dry or oily skin.

TV? be sure to know the talents have makeup on set. And of course, I did glam up before stepping out for date night.
