Maybe you have never knew that you have been making these mistakes you whole life but the fact is that 90% of women are making them. Take a look below and find the solution for better look.
1. Applying too much blush too low on your face
Putting blush on a lower part of your cheek can drag your face down and look overdone.
Use a contouring brush and apply color only to the apples of your cheeks, as opposed to the entire sides of your face. This way, your face will be lifted up naturally when you blend and avoid looking over-the-top and, well, like a clown.
2. Using way too many products for contouring
Your look can often result in some nasty orange streaks in natural light settings, if not done perfectly.
Start with your matte bronzer at the top of your forehead and make light strokes down your hairline connecting from your forehead to the top of your cheekbone and your jawline. Blend a little and you’re out the door
3. Applying lipstick to naked lips
It is a big mistake if you want your color to actually last and apply evenly without smearing or drying out your lips.
Prep your lips with a papaw ointment or light face moisturizer and let it soak in while you do the rest of your makeup routine. After a few minutes, apply your lipstick. The added moisture will ensure your lipstick doesn’t wear off right away and that it glides on much more smoothly and evenly.
4. Testing your foundations in the wrong spots
More often than not, however, doing this can cause you to buy a shade that’s too dark on your face and/or doesn’t match your pigment.
Quick Fix: Dab a little on your neck and on the outside of your cheek. Your neck color is usually a lighter hue, which means you’ll be less likely to buy a formula that’s too dark for your face (remember, it’s easier to brush a little more bronzer on your face than to try and lighten a darker formula)
5. Throwing away your mascara too soon
Why it’s wrong: We’ve all heard about the horrible things that can grow in your tube of mascara after keeping it around longer than four months, but that doesn’t mean you should toss it when your formula starts getting too thick, says StyleSeat makeup artist Brian Dean. If it’s before the four month mark, your mascara is probably becoming hard from pumping the tube every day.
Quick Fix: If you find your mascara getting a little too clumpy for your liking, Dean suggests putting two or three drops of saline solution in the tube and stirring with your wand. The added moisture refreshes the formula, which means you’ll get a lot more usage out of it and your lashes will be much smoother and a lot less clumpy.
