I use to HATE applying eyeliner on myself and also on my clients. At one point I tried to talk my clients out of having a winged eyeliner. I didn't even like the look of it. The reason I disliked it  was because I didn't know how to apply the look.  Don't get me wrong it doesn't suit everyone, it is a big no no for people with hooded eyes and also on mature skin. So girls let's make the most of it before we grow old! Before I started working at Mi:Skin Beauty I only practiced make up techniques on myself and not on other people. This job gave me the confidence to start using my skills in make up on other people. I firstly started to practice on my  friends and family, I found that doing make up on friends and family was the best kind of practice because they are extremely fussy- but this is a good thing as more practice means better make up skills! As the salon started getting busy with weddings (and I love doing wedding make up) my love and skills in make up grew- which then led me to  winged eyeliner! I knew I could master it with enough practice and lots and lots of youtube videos. I practiced every night on myself and on all the girls in work. Just remember make up does come off, so keep clam and practiced more! I can finally say I have masted a perfect winged liner on myself and on clients and I must say is does complete a beautiful look.

Many people use petroleum jelly on their lips thinking it nourishes and hydrates the skin. But sadly, research has shown that this is not the case. And do you know where petroleum jelly comes from? You might be surprised! Petroleum comes from the same place as gasoline, it is basically a byproduct of the oil industry. It’s a leftover residue created during the refinery of crude oil.

Are you put off yet?!

As well as the somewhat unpleasant history of where petroleum jelly actually comes from, the view that putting it on your lips is hydrating them doesn't necessarily ring true. You may actually be causing more harm than good. Because petroleum jelly forms a seal over the skin, it disrupts the bodies process of elimination of toxins through the pores, potentially trapping them under the skin.

Applying petroleum jelly also creates a false sense or “feeling” of skin comfort and hydration when in fact, it has no proven dermatological evidence of hydrating the skin.

If you are looking for an alternative to hydrate the skin on the lips, then look no further.

Dermalogica AgeSmart Lip Renewal Complex contains Avocado Oil and is dermatalogically tested. It will help to minimise the signs of fine lines and wrinkles at the same time.

Alternatively, Love it for Lips is a Climate Control Lip Treatment balm which contains Vitamin E to help smooth, soothe and heal lips suffering from dryness and chapping caused by environmental conditions.   In stock at Mi:Skin Beauty
