Makeup mistakes that we often make
Why do we use makeup? Of course, to preset ourselves in a better way, feel good and to look our best!! But at times we are bound to make mistakes knowingly or unknowingly or may be while we were in a rush! Let’s see some of the mistakes that we have made at some point in time or should take extra precaution!
Too light or dark foundation can be a complete no no. I agree, it’s hard to choose a foundation that can exactly match your skin tone but still we can try and choose a color that is our closest match. You don’t want to look too ashy or tanned. Right? This is one such mistake that is very very common, especially when you have medium skin color.
Blush can be the simplest way to give some glow and dimensions to your face. Putting blush only on the apples of your cheeks will not do anything in your favor, rather that you may end up looking strange and made up. Try to blend and sweep your blush towards the ears for a natural flushed look.
Too much of blush
Not just the badly applied blush looks weird but using too much can be a faux pas too. To be on a safer side choose a natural color that goes well with the complexion. If the blush is highly pigmented, use them light handedly and tap the brush to get rid of the excess pigment on the brush.
After the foundation, this is one such product that can do exactly opposite of what we have intended to use it for. Concealer should be 1- 2 shades lighter than the sin tone but way too light concealers should be avoided. Use color correctors instead!
You have dark circles and in order to hide them, you have used too light concealer straight away under the eyes but now, you don’t have dark circles but two half moon shaped lighter patches under the eyes. Always blend the concealer under the eyes from the edges and gently blend it outwards and downwards to not make it obvious. Again for heavy dark circles, concealers alone will not be able to hide them. Use color correctors.
Lipstick on your lips not the teeth
Lipstick is the most used product, but aren’t they meant for the lips only. Yes!! At times, it may get smudged on the teeth unknowingly or while applying or eating! This can be embarrassing. Be careful and keep a check on it, especially if you are wearing a red lipstick or any darker lipstick shades.
Do not avoid the neck
Most of us have this habit of putting foundation, moisturizers and lotions only on, the face, but our neck too wants equal attention. So, the next time you apply your foundation, dot in some of
it on the neck as well and blend in.
Next time you are getting ready!! Do remember these, most of these mistakes can happen not due to ignorance but lack of time too while we are getting ready or in a rush!!
