Facial Waxing and Makeup Adhesion

Plan your facial waxing carefully or you may have trouble with makeup adhesion for your party or special event. You would think it's a good idea to have your lip and brow waxing done right before your event so you look nice and hair free. Think again! Dead skin cells are exfoliated when the wax is pulled off during the hair removal leaving the skin super smooth. 

Your foundation and eye makeup may not stick on those smooth freshly waxed areas on your face such as your upper lip, chin or brows. 

I have had it happen when applying prom makeup.  The prom girl shows up with a freshly upper lip and foundation just slides right off leaving a weird looking shiny spot. It takes a bit of my favorite shadow primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion), foundation, powder and a light touch to get it to stick. It's quite a challenge.

Have your facial waxing done at least 3 or 4 days before your event to help solve the super smooth skin problem.

Have a Beautiful Day!
