Sophisticate’s Blog:         EVERLASTING BEAUTY (BAG)


It’s safe to say that beauty products can definitely rack up a bill—from face, to skin to nails, women spend a good chunk of change to look (and feel!) fab each year. The worst part is when it comes time to ditch your old, over-used products…it’s almost cringe-worthy! But, before you toss lipsticks on their last licks or cracked eye shadow palettes, think twice! Here, seasoned experts offer their quick and handy tips…

To keep eye liners sharp, be certain to clean your sharpener after every use. Eyeliner shavings clogged in the blade will most likely result in an uneven, rough tip. Try using a sharpener that comes with its own cleaning tool suggests Lisa Bookman, Director of Global Marketing for Palladio Beauty.

IMG_0395If your favorite blush or eyeshadow crumbles, go with it! Crumble up as much as possible and turn it into a loose powder! Grab a tightly-packed, dense shadow brush (or blush brush if that is the case), and apply, says Bookman.

When your favorite lipstick is down to its last leg in the tube, scrape it out and place in a little travel size container available at your local drugstore. Swipe onto lips with a small lip brush, offers Dr. Marina Peredo, founder of Spatique Medical Spa & Marina I. Peredo Dermatology in Smithtown, NY.

IMG_0316Wash your makeup brushes once a week. Bacteria from your face and hands can get on your brushes and then is applied back onto the skin, which can cause breakouts. When drying brushes, let them hang over the edge of the counter, not flat on the counter, so they dry fluffy instead of flat, shares Dr. Peredo.

Always close and tighten lids on skin care products and foundations to keep as much air out as possible. Wash your fingers before putting them in any skincare product jar. The hands and nails carry tons of germs and you do not want those in your night cream jar, advises Dr. Gary Goldfaden, dermatologist and founder of Goldfaden MD.

Over time, nail polish can thicken due to evaporation of the solvent medium. Often times, these polishes can be revived by adding a small amount of acetone to the polish and mixing it with gentle shakes. Start with just a few drops, because that may be all that is necessary, suggests Dr. Chris Adigun, Dermelect Cosmeceuticals’ Board of Advisors and NYU Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology.
