An excerpt from Cassandra's second makeup book, "Makeup Mandate Or Myth?"

Read on and discover fact from fiction!

MYTH: apply makeup in natural light FACT


Natural light is the most unforgiving and also the strongest light available, making it perfect for applying makeup. You will achieve different results from applying makeup next to an open window in a well-lit room than you will in a room with tungsten lighting. 

 MYTH: use products from one brand or line only FALSE


You can mix and match brands and lines of makeup products very successfully. This myth would certainly have been begun by a cosmetics manufacturer!

  MYTH: blend everything FACT 


Well–applied makeup is well-blended makeup. Even strong lines require subtle blending to some degree. 

MYTH: less is more FALSE


Less is less. More is more. The terms more and less are relative. Wear whatever is ‘more’ for you, rather than letting someone else dictate that for you.

MYTH: do not mix products FALSE


Feel free to mix anything you like. Lipstick can be mixed with lip gloss, moisturiser or primer can be mixed with foundation etc. 

MYTH: cheap products mean cheap results FALSE


Quality in makeup rarely comes cheap, but cheap is relative. Even the most economical products can give great-looking results if they are well-applied, so you need not burn a hole in your pocket. Your budget will determine what you purchase and what your priorities are. 

MYTH: makeup is for women only FALSE


Men can definitely wear makeup and the trend for them to do so is growing, as society’s demand for perfection increases. Some manufacturers are designing unisex ranges or ranges specifically for men. 

MYTH: all makeup brands are the same FALSE


The difference in products is just as large as the vast range of brands available. Trial and error is the best way to discover what works for you, as each person’s requirements and preferences are very different. 

MYTH: never blot your makeup FALSE


Blotting will remove excess oil, preserving the life of the makeup and controlling shine. Not doing so could result in a patchy finish to your foundation. Therefore, it is recommended to blot after applying foundation and before applying face powder. 

These tips are an extract from the first chapter of Cassandra's second Makeup Ebook MAKEUP MANDATE OR MYTH? To purchase this book for $9.95AU, click here.
