Sensitive Skin: How to Find the Right Products

Sensitive Skin: How to Find the Right Products | Beauty and makeup MUST KNOWs! | Scoop.it
Hi Everyone, 

Sensitive skin can be just as frustrating as having dry or oily skin. No matter what you do your fear of harming your skin prevents you from
Beatrice Lam's insight:

In my opinion, sensitive skin has got to be the most frustrating and problematic feature a girl can possess. Scrutinizing every product you wish to purchase is a necessary measure to prevent harsh chemicals from coming in contact with your delicate face, else all hell breaks loose. Therefore, it is very important to be able to filter out products that are essentially good for your face. Also, one has to be conscious when exposed to advertisements since advertisers target audiences through central and peripheral routes.

What You Don’t Know About Oily Skin May Hurt You

What You Don’t Know About Oily Skin May Hurt You | Beauty and makeup MUST KNOWs! | Scoop.it
Hi Everyone,

We all have bad habits. Some of us pick blemishes (an ultimate no-no), some fall asleep with a full face of makeup, and others forget to moisturize
Beatrice Lam's insight:

One of the most common assumptions people make is that "if your face is oily, you do not have to moisturize it because it will only make your face oilier." This assumption can be reduced if we start educating one another through word of mouth or snowballing.

Acne/Blemish Covering Makeup - Foundation & Concealer Tutorial - YouTube

The products I've used in the film are: Bare Escentuals - Concealer Brush: http://lisae.me.uk/12773-12764 Becca - Shimmering Skin Perfector: http://lisae.me....
Beatrice Lam's insight:

According to the law of attraction, men are generally more attracted to women with feminine features. I personally feel that society and mass media advertisements have a huge influence on our mindsets. With the constant exposure and priming of models and the media's definition of "attractiveness" (Skinny, tall, blemish-free face), it is no wonder that women are constantly investing tons of money in makeup products just to look more "appealing".

Starting up a business is the first step to success. Being able to manage and coordinate different roles and functions are fundamental in determining its success or failure.

Beatrice Lam's insight:

It doesn't matter whether your foundation is bought from the drugstores, or a high end luxury product. What matters most is the way it is applied to product a flawless canvas for the public. First impressions DO matter (especially if you are going for an interview) and it is all about self presentation and impression management.

The Proper Way to Wash Your Face

The Proper Way to Wash Your Face | Beauty and makeup MUST KNOWs! | Scoop.it
Every night before you go to bed you wash your face. It’s the most necessary part of your skincare routine, but it’s also the step that some people take
Beatrice Lam's insight:

Step 1 to every beauty regime: Washing your face properly

I find it rather intriguing that many women would rather spend their money on makeup products to cover up their blemishes and imperfections, as opposed to investing in good skincare products that can help minimize problems such as discolorations, and inflammations etc. Though I think the makeup industry is really clever in making money because women tend to go for fast, "immediate" results. However, I think this is very dependent on one's psychological process and thinking (short term vs long term, cost vs benefits, purchasing power).

Skin Mistakes That Cause Breakouts

Skin Mistakes That Cause Breakouts | Beauty and makeup MUST KNOWs! | Scoop.it
We're excited to bring you another great article from BellaSugar, a fantastic source for beauty news, how-to's, celebrity beauty trends, and giveaways galore.
Beatrice Lam's insight:

In order to solve a problem, it is essential to understand what are the root causes, then come up with a set of feasible goals and strategies to counter it. Similarly, being aware of your facial condition and undermining factors to occasional/stubborn breaktouts is the first step to curbing the frequency and occurrence. However, I feel that instead of doing so, many of us are influenced by commercials and advertisements of "miracle" facial "remedies". We are easily swayed by social media and our peers, that we don't stop to consider what are the underlying  messages, objectives and goals of the advertiser. Messages may also be biased since they are usually passed through gatekeepesrs.

Beatrice Lam's insight:

While adopting healthy sleeping habits and keeping yourself dehydrated before the big day are some no-brainers, people usually pay little attention to contributing factors such as consuming a healthy diet and hormonal stressors. For instance, food with high sodium content should be taken in moderation. With these factors in place,  one's self esteem and confidence will be in check for the big day.

Beatrice Lam's insight:

Some ladies have the the misconception that by using a lighter shade of foundation on their skin, it will make them look fairer than they originally are. However, they usually do not stop to think that in order to look flawless, the shade of foundation should match one's neck (and chest, if exposed). Due to surrounding environmental factors and stressors, the tone of our face usually do not match with our body. A quick tip: The best places to test if the foundation color is right for you are the chin and jawline.
