Monday Makeup Tips 5!
What is in my makeup?
Ingredients, chemicals and much more.
So I came across a video on youtube and was informed of some cosmetics containing chemicals that look great on the outside but indeed can be damaging in the long-term.
1. Bismuth oxychloride – this is a chemical that gives a lot of coverage and therefore blocks pores
2. Ethylhexyl palmitate also blocks pores which our skin does not like – also found in HD Makeup Forever
3. Sodium Lareth found in cleansers and removes natural oils so this may cause the dehydrated skin outlook.
So everyone wants these things: coverage, long-lasting wear, not blocking pores.
But try to look out and research makeup chemicals that enhance your skin rather than cause long-term damage.
Tip: Blend concealer applied with fingers in a soft gentle motion to blend with makeup as much as possible. Gives a more natural effect :)
Lots of love DHM xxx
