hello everyone,

I'm having this unusual problem of looking gorgeous at night and when it's day time I just become ugly, it's due to my skin. I've tried consulting loads of specialists but still no joy.

someone pleeese help me, so many guys have dumped me because of this, unbelievable is it not?

I would be forever grateful to the person who can help me with this

You'll have to tell us more for us to really know what's going on with your skin. But from my own experience I'll share these tips.
  1. If your skin is an oil slick during the day, causing your makeup to "shift". Use cooler water to wash your face, use a toner, and a very light application of moisturizer, then apply your makeup. Use a tissue to blot off any oiliness during the day.
  2. If you're just no good at Daylook MU during the day, but do better with afterhours looks, choose one area (eyes) to emphsize and apply little MU to the other area.
  3. If it's a matter of lighting, then by a mirror that simulates the diffrent types of lighting effect and practice your day/night look in this. ***This continues to be by worst challenge, I've had to work on the flourescent light application, (the lights cast a green effect upon me). Often I'd get to work and be shocked at the coloring
    I saw in the mirror.
Again you'll have to be more specific about the problem, for us to be more helpful. In the mean time I hope this helps someone.

i agree with the mirror lighting....sometimes the mirror at work where we see ourselves reflect a horrible light on us n hence we feel that our skin is not glowing. it has happened many times with me. i leave home feeling beautiful only to come to work to see how pathetic my skin has become n then going home to see oh my skin is back!

fluorescent lighting has a way of bringing out the worst in your skin. It also doesn't help the appearance of makeup either.

Hey there, these posts are quite old so not sure if you girls are still around. I know excatly what you mean by this problem, I look stunning in photographs taken with a flash at night, my sjkin looks absolutely flawless even compared to friends who have not got a single blemish. I have really bad acne scarring, and I always dread the lights getting turned on in a club after the party is over, and I dread going on a second date with a person who only saw me at night the first time.There is not much I can do about it but just hope that I meet someone who likes me for what I am , and who meets me in the broad daylight for the first time! I think its a good idea to care for skin within , so that you have to wear less makeup, makeup itself can be a big contributor to skin looking bad in daylight, good skincare and less makeup will look better.
I also totally agree about mirrors, some shops i walk into i feel i look great , then i may go into a cheaper store for example TK XXXX and oh my gosh their mirrors are sooooo bad. It actually puts me off buying anything there cos the mirrors are so unflatterring I just wanna get outta there.

I know its really hard to be conscious about feeling ugly in daylight, try to concentrate on looking after and improving your overall skin condition , what i find is that if the majority of the skin / face is healthy and glowing, it makes the bad areas less obvious. You will find that the bad areas are smaller than you think once the rest of the face is healthy.

Hi there,

The secret to radiant skin us to start with a clean base.

You do not mention your skin type. Choose a cleanser which removes debris gently without disturbing your skin's natural moisture balance.

Follow with a non-alcohol based toner to help restore skin's natural pH level and improve texture and tone. Then use a SPF sun-cream, factor 15 or higher because the sun is your skin's worst enemy.

This routine should set you on your way to smoother skin.

In the evening, remember always to remove your make-up before bed.

Best of luck. Hope this helps in some way,

Warmest regards,

redrose
