Looking good is important to many if not all ladies. We don’t have to look overly dressed and made up to be beautiful, but there are times when our makeup choices make us far from that. Here are some makeup mistakes that a few of us ladies are still making:
Concealing the world: When you conceal, it has to be as close to the real deal as possible. You are not trying to conceal your sins, so easy on the application. Concealer for under the eyes should not look like that part is separate from your face. Blend everything well, and make sure you do not use concealer more than one or two shades lighter than your skin tone.
Imperfect eyebrows: We agree that your eyebrows are supposed to be on fleek. Don’t get too stressed out when they don’t look exactly alike because neither do the natural ones. Close enough is good enough. And remember, your eyebrows are sisters and not identical twins.
Clumpy mascara: The more you use your mascara, pumping it in and out, air gets trapped inside. Makeup mistakes like this makes it clumpy. . Once your mascara dries out, stop using it. When using mascara, pump it in just once, and that will be enough to get your lashes done.
Overly bold eyeliner: When you stretch out your skin, it will distort the line when it gets back into place as your face is relaxed. It is usually used to create a soft smoky line, hence, you can apply eyeliner to the outer parts of the waterline so as not to fully close your eyes.
Laying foundation: Most people take prepping the skin for granted before putting on your foundation. This will sit well and blend easily if the skin is perfectly moisturized and clean. The more you moisturize, the better you will look. All the prepping will be of no use if you do not know which type of foundation fits you best.
Blushing and bronzing: This is usually applied to the wrong part of the face, too much or using the wrong shade. Try to apply to the apples of the cheek or higher, and lightly. Keep the shade natural or you might end up looking like a clown.
These few mistakes taken out of your makeup routine and you will look great all day, every day.
