You might get your 8 hours of nightly shut-eye, drink plenty of fluids, eat a well-balanced diet and have the best genes in the world, but if your skin isn’t looking its best, the culprit might be inside your makeup bag. Yes, makeup can make you look like your best self and then some, but if what you’re putting on your face is low quality, expired, contaminated or just doesn’t agree with you, it has the ability to undermine the best lifestyle choices and skincare regimen. According to the experts, when it comes to makeup this is what you need to know so you don’t sabotage your skin:

According to a Beauty in the Bag poll conducted earlier this year, 70% of us aren’t washing our makeup brushes as often as we should—and here’s how often we actually do it…

THREE LIP COLORS TO OWN THIS SPRING

Posted by 04.02.14

Lipstick launches are always in season, but for spring, there are some new kids on the block that we’ve got our eyes on.

My pet lipstick peeve is that it doesn’t stay on long enough: by latte time, almost every variety is washed off or has transformed into a paler version of its former self. Makeup artist Ramy Gafni suggests the following tips to ensure lipstick longevity:

Fill your lip with a nude or lip-toned pencil before you apply the lipstick of choice. “The pencil gives the lipstick something to adhere to so the lipstick stays on twice as long,” he says.
After applying lipstick, use a one-ply tissue against your lips (the thinness helps; two-ply is too thick, says Gafni). You
