Makeup-Mistakes

Makeup Tips and Tricks are all over Beauty Magazines and Beauty Blogs. We were trying to sort through the vast number of Makeup DO’s and DON’Ts and sorted out the most common and easy to fix beauty blunders women make.

What makeup mistake do you think you’ve committed? No women want’s to admit to failure but many of us are repeat offenders when it comes to makeup blunders. Whether it is a wrong foundation color for your skin tone, an eyeshadow color that does not compliment nor enhance your eye color, or an eyeliner that looks like your are still living in the 70’s, you may or may not be aware of the makeup mistakes you are making.

So, we went to work and found most common makeup mistakes most all women make or have made at some point in their lives.

Mistake No. 1

Choosing the wrong foundation color. Yeah, it does not look so good, does it?

Make sure you match the color of your foundation to your skin tone. Your foundation is supposed to give you a flawless complexion not a tan. Test the color by applying it to your jawline and make sure it matches the tone of your skin. Have someone else do it for you if you can’t tell.  Apply your foundation in proper lighting and blend well, or you may just walk out wondering why people are staring at you.

Mistake No. 2

Applying too much foundation or applying over flaky and dry skin. Foundation will accentuate your flaky and dry skin. Exfoliate 1 -2 times a week to keep skin smooth and youthful and apply a moisturizing mask. Here is an idea. Have a Exfoliating Party once a week with your BFF.

Mistake No.3

Wearing wrong color eyeshadow. Certain Colors like Blue should be avoided at any times. Unless you are a model or going to a halloween party, keep it neutral. Wow, yeah, not so sexy, huh?

Mistake N0. 5

Over tweezing, not tweezing or over coloring your eyebrows. When you your are too excited about tweezing, you may have to pencil hair back in. Be careful not to overdo it one way or the other.

Mistake N0. 8

No, not the Glitter. But Glitter looks so glamorous and fun and shiny. That’s it. No shiny stuff please. And this is why.

It’s messy, it will end up on other place around your face and it can get into your eye and scratch your eyes (unless you use Cosmetic Grade Glitter). If you must insist on a little sparkle use shimmer eyeshadow which contains very fine shiny particles and give you a little sparkle.
