7 Beauty Myths...Unmasked!

...Unmasked!

Remember when Mom told you that if you made a face for too long it would freeze that way? You got wise to that fast. Other passed-down stories may still have you wondering. Here are 7 beauty myths to stop believing, plus the truth that can change the way you look and feel.

MYTH

Pump your mascara wand in the tube before applying to get fuller lashes.

FACT

That actually lets air into the tube, which could dry out the mascara. To get more on your wand, swirl it instead.

Red lipstick isn’t for everyone.

FACT

There are so many shades of red, which means you just need to find the right one for you. As a general rule, choose true red for fair skin, coral-red for beige skin, brick red for medium skin, and purple-red for chocolate skin.

MYTH

Wearing dark eyeliner makes your eyes look smaller.

FACT

Only when you apply it to just your lower lid. Use liner on the top and bottom, along with good volumizing mascara, and you’ll look wide awake.
