While most ladies will never be able to apply makeup like the professionals, we can at least do the basic right? You might be surprised to know that you may have been committing some beauty blunder all these while. That time has come for you to know some of those mistakes and most importantly learn how to correct them.
Eye shadow Fades into Crease: Some women have more trouble with this than others. It seems like women with oily skin struggle with it the most. The solution to it is simple. Apply an eye primer before you apply your eye shadow. If you still have problems with the only eye shadow left at the end of the day being in the crease then you may need to shop for a better brand
The Dreaded Foundation Line: This is a makeup mistake you can spot from a mile away. When someone makes this mistake, you almost feel embarrassed for them. It happens when you’re wearing the wrong shade or you don’t blend your makeup in carefully. If you suspect you’re wearing a foundation color that’s not right for you then ask a consultant for help at your favorite makeup counter. And blend, blend, blend!
Concealer Caking under Your Eyes: This one happens very easily. In fact, it has happened to almost all of us at one time or another. Concealer is a magical makeup product but it can be cakey. To prevent this, make sure you pat your concealer in instead of rubbing it. Also, remember you only need a tiny amount.
Contouring Makes You Look Dirty: Contouring is really tricky. It can make your face look absolutely stunning, not to mention slimmer. But it’s not easy to accomplish. If you feel like contouring makes your face look dirty then you’re either using a product that’s too dark or you’re applying too much of it.
Try switching to a lighter palette or using a lighter hand while applying.
Your Blush Looks Too Strong: This is one I have to be careful about. Blush that looks too strong distracts from the rest of your makeup. If your blush looks more like paint than a natural flush, tone it down by blending it out and adding a light layer of powder on top.
Eyeliner Looks Too Dramatic: Do you ever step back from the mirror and feel like your eyeliner looks too dramatic? Eyeliner is meant to bring attention to your eyes but you want your eyes to be the center of attention, not the eyeliner surrounding them. You can do several things if you feel your eyeliner is always too dramatic. You can switch to a lighter color such as from black to gray or brown. You can also practice wearing a thinner line.
Unflattering Lipstick: Lipstick can be the finishing touch that makes your whole look come together. It can also make your makeup look very, very wrong. If you feel like you might be wearing lipstick shades that aren’t flattering to you then try some different ones. Start by shopping for a shade that’s close to your natural lip color; this is what makeup junkies frequently refer to as a “your lips but better” shade. Ask a friend who’s talented with makeup to come along if you feel you need help.
