Mother Proof Beauty Rules (They Never Fail!)


My Mother is full of some very unique wisdom and although her love of make up and all things beauty does not quite reflect mine, she has taught me many very important things over the years. Not to mention have I always had certain things ingrained into me by general life.
So I thought that I would share these and maybe spread the wisdom!

  1. The Killer: always remove your make up before bed. (Sorry guys, but you know it's true...)
  2. Try not to touch your face; what's on your fingers will go onto your face! (Wipes off jam smears...)
  3. Plucking brows after a bath or shower is most definitely easier. 
  4. Only put your conditioner on your ends (smother it on them if you will); otherwise your roots will become very greasy! You may in fact not need conditioner if your hair is naturally very soft. 
  5. Applying body moisturisers/lotions is best when you skin is still damp. (Check your righteous butters if you don't believe me!)
  6. A bit of cold(er) water can make your hair that much shinier. 
  7. Use your face moisturiser on your neck too!
  8. Old toothbrushes can be great for exfoliating lips. 
  9. Always file your nails and never cut them; file in one direction, the same way every time. 
  10. Never tug hair bands out of your hair, unwrap them. 
  11. Always start brushing your hair at the ends. 
  12. Do not stretch the skin around your eyes when applying or removing make up; this equals wrinkles!
  13. Use your ring fingers (are they both ring fingers?) to apply product(s) to your face as it is the most delicate/gentle and will damage your skin less. 
  14. Face creams and body creams are not the same. 
  15. It's nice to let your skin breathe a little some days; it's okay to leave the make up!

I hope  that you've found these useful and maybe your mother's have told you these as well!

What are your fail-proof beauty rules?
