5 Beauty Rules That You Really Should Break

Ditch the dictum and do them anyway

These beauty rules are meant to be broken

Since time immemorial, we've been fed plenty of beauty rules. While many of them are still followed quite strictly, there are those which aren't. Especially in today's scenario where beauty is steadily becoming more inclusive and experimental, many of those rules just don't apply. Today we're dishing on the 5 beauty rules that you should go ahead and break already.

Rule 1 - Don't Go Bold During The Day

Although day time looks tend to be lighter overall, nothing should stop you from a more elaborate eye makeup look in the day. Instead of basing your choices on the time of day, work them around the occasion you're attending. If a bold eye makeup suits your outfit and occasion even in the day, ditch the dictum and do it anyway.

Rule 2 - Always Style With Clean Hair

The truth is unwashed hair that's a day or two old lends itself better to hairstyles with texture. So if you're curling, teasing or braiding your hair, dirty hair will hold the style better than clean hair. So break the rule but make sure you do something about the smell!

Rule 3 - Both Nails Need To Match

Only if you're a stickler for neatness will you match the polish of your nails on your hands to your toes. Everyone else can go wild. Even if you like to keep it muted on your hands, you can go bright on your toes. There's absolutely no need to keep both the same shade, even more so since it's a minute detail that barely anyone notices.

Rule 4 - Say No To Neon Lids

We think you should say yes instead. Bright neon eyeshadows like pink, green, blue and purple can be worked beautifully into a look with the right makeup look. As long as you've got the skills and confidence for it, you're good to go and no beauty rule can tell you otherwise.

Rule 5 - Concealer Must Be Lighter


For most usage, concealer needs to be same shade as your skin tone as that is the only way it will blend seamlessly with your skin without looking streaky or patchy. It is only for the purpose of brightening or highlighting that concealer in a shade lighter needs to be used.
