Top 10 Makeup Felonies
No one is innocent, not even Paris Hilton. Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles tells which beauty crimes to avoid
10. Neglecting Your SkinProblem: Good makeup starts with a good canvas, which is hard to achieve if you're not taking care of your skin. "I cannot express the importance of a good skin care regime," says Stiles, echoing many makeup artists who cite poor habits (i.e. smoking and staying up late) and lack of sun protection and moisture as main contributors to bad skin.
Solution: Don't just use any product. See a facialist and do some research to find a good cleanser, moisturizer and targeted treatment products that are suited to your skin type. Also, consult our guide to finding The Right Skin Care for Your Age. And don't forget to protect your skin daily with a high-SPF sunblock like Ocean Potion Face Potion, $3.99, which "isn't greasy, doesn't leave a white cast, and costs under $5," says Stiles.
"Remember, your face ends at your nipples," says Stiles. "Don't neglect your neck and chest; they need sunblock and moisturizer too." (Your chest gets so much sun during driving and walking time, you may not even realize it.) Find out what else you can be doing to protect your skin daily here.
