Most people may ask “how will I know the difference between fake makeup products since they all look similar?”and o Today the most talked about topic is the increase of fake makeup products on the market.

HOW TO IDENTIFY FAKE MAKEUP PRODUCTS
- Test makeup products before buying: Good quality eye shadows and blushers do not smear or slide off when applied, a genuine lipstick or lip gloss are easy to apply smoothly and evenly and quality mascara’s, eyeliners and lip liners do not break easily.
- Check brushes: Quality brushes have soft and smooth bristles.
- Concentrate on the smell and the thickness: Genuine makeup products must not have any strange materials or unsuitable glitters in them especially when the products are matte. Genuine products are not very thick and also not too light.
- Check the shades of the products: Fake lipsticks, eye shadows, blushes and powders are mostly manufactured in different colors or shades that are not seen in the original products.
- Study the packaging of the products: Most fake products have eye catching packages look more attractive than the original products.
I observed that the best way to avoid buying fake makeup products and also get good quality products at affordable prices is to purchase the products at any authorized makeup shops or where the original products have been manufactured.
