2 Makeup And Skincare Bad Habits To Break: Expert Tips From Sebastien Tardif

October 27, 2015 by Ella Cajayon
shefinds | beauty

We all have our bad habits with our skin and makeup routines, but have you ever wondered WHY these habits are bad? We turned to makeup and skincare expert, Sebastien Tardif, to get some answers!

He shared with us two of the biggest bad habits his clients tend to make with their makeup and skincare routine.

1. Sometimes, it isn’t the makeup that’s the problem.

Tardif shared, “When pairing skincare/primer with makeup, people have a tendency or bad habit to quickly blame the makeup when it doesn’t look natural or doesn’t sit well on skin. In truth, most often then not the culprit has do with the right level of hydration provided by the skincare. Also, lots of primers, eye creams, and face skincare are packed with soft focus powder/pigments that provide that smooth “anti- aging” look. When soft focus is too abundant, makeup tends to just roll or pill off right at application time and just won’t settle nicely. Try the same makeup over a different lotion or water based primer and results will be much more impressive without any blending struggles.”

2. Using powder to keep our makeup in place is doing much more harm than good.

Tardif busted this beauty myth by saying, “Another bad habit is the usage of powder to ‘seal makeup into place.’ Powder is often just a band aid approach to hide the fact that the foundation or moisturizer being used is too emollient and leaves skin looking wet. When the right hydration and face makeup formula are used, powder is not even necessary. In fact, it will just bring attention to fine lines or peach fuzz, not to mention that powder never mimics the look of real skin.”

The trick to breaking our bad habits is not just realizing what they are, but understanding why they’re bad habits in the first place. From there, we can gain even more motivation to break these bad habits for good!
