Do cosmetics make you look bloated?
Most women have noticed this for a while, but they never gotten a chance to look at it. Have you ever had one of those days where you put on make up, you don’t like how you look the entire day, you come home and then your rise it off. Finally you notice a big change. You may seem thinner and more attractive.¬†
So there is no myth or hallucination when I say that make up may make you look fat or bloated.¬†
The top 2 reasons why this occurs:¬†
1. You’re not applying it correctly.
By Applying your make up in a way that you’re just throwing it on, it will create a blocky effect on you skin. One side may have more foundation and the other side will have little. Also when throwing on make up, its usually that its for something last minute. So we tend to fill our brushes with as much powder as we can and we have this paranoid feeling that we will never get there on time so we just slap it on our faces and end up looking like a hot mess. Makeup needs to be even, so when applying your foundation base, get your brush and mix the foundation in a circular motion on your skin. I do it 10 times on each small part. This is a great tip to get that even foundation and natural look that will prevent you from looking bloated.¬†
Another reason why you make look bloated or fat with make up on is because you’re not using the right products. Most products have harsh chemicals. So don’t fall for those glamours advertisements, but look at the ingredients! Mineral Powders are always amazing. Vitamin moisturizers and rose water is a great remedy to apply on your face before your make up. Always stick to natural beauty products or you’ll have this makeup mess.¬†
