Correcting Popular Makeup Myths

Don’t spray water or toner on makeup to set or freshen it up. It doesn’t work. A mist of water can streak foundation, powder, and mascara.

Don’t change every part of your makeup with every season. If you want to go softer during the spring and summer, that’s fine, but it isn’t an absolute must.

Don’t use makeup to correct the shape of anything on your face, especially the lips. Close up and in person you can tell when lipstick has been applied beyond or inside the natural lip line. If you overcontour, you will look like you have brown stripes all over your face.

Don’t use foundation or color correctors to change the color of your skin. Foundation must match the underlying skin tone exactly. If you have yellow or olive skin there’s nothing you can do to change it. Even if it did look good on your face, any correction would look strange next to your neck and along the hairline.
