Flare up face

Aug 19, 2016 9:49 PM

Has anybody noticed a painful sensation on your cheekbones and jaw after flying foundation and powder on your face?

Also, why? I used to do my makeup everyday but no I refuse unless I'm going to a party or a red carpet event lol ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’Ž

Also, to add to what Lulabel said, you need to replace any unused portion of the make-up every 6 months. Also replace your brushes and mascara.. Anything that's over 6 months old. The bacteria makes changes to the make-up and could cause you the issues you describe. I hope that you will find this to be helpful and that you can then comfortably put on your war paint... LOL!!! {{Hugs}}๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜Š

It's been a while since I've had the spoons for makeup, but I haven't noticed any facial pain other than TMJ. Have you changed makeup brands? Or noticed more sensitive skin in general?
