Do’s and Don’ts: Makeup vs jewellery

A little advice on how to get the best look, without damaging any of your jewellery while said look is in the making.

Do: have fun matching your jewellery to the rest of your look. Vivid red nails make diamond rings pop, vibrant lipstick calls for spectacular earrings. A clean fresh-faced look will be super chic and cute with freshwater pearls, and fun and trendy with chunky jewellery or ethnic pieces.

Don’t: wear it while you work on your look. Hairspray, moisture from moisturizer and creams, and colored pigments in makeup are only some of the agents that can damage your gemstone jewellery. A rule of thumb: your jewellery should be the last thing you slip on before heading out, and the first you remove when you come back home.
