When you were a girl, probably your first steps in makeup were not that successful as today. However, with time women get experienced enough to put on their makeup every morning and every time before going out as it is a general routine like breathing or eating. Still, a research has shown that even women with great experience in makeup tend to make errors that are typical for not-so-fashion-conscious young girls. So, better check out the worst mistakes you might be still doing right away and simply stop doing them!
1.Wrong Selection of Complexion Shades
Whether it’s your makeup base, or the concealer you use for covering the blemishes and little wrinkles, as well as the foundation, the right shade selection is a must. Be extremely aware with the purchasing of these products, because they’re the key and the general elements of your final makeup. So, keep in mind that your foundation needs to be as close to your natural facial nuance as possible, while the concealer, on the other hand – if you put it to cover the tired eye zone – must be darker.
2.Applying Makeup Products on Dry Skin
Whatever you apply on your dehydrated and not moisturized skin, it will look like hell on your face. It’s not only about putting some hydrating cream before the foundation; you should also hydrate the eyelids if you love wearing eye shadows and want them to last longer. Also, lack of hydration makes your face look fake.
3.Wearing Blue Makeup on Your Eyes
OK, you might be admiring blue eyes very much, but putting on blue makeup will not make your eyes blue. On the contrary – blue eye shadows work with very few people and such a makeup conception usually ends up with the physically-abused-girl-effect. If you like this palette, better replace it with purple or green. And if you still prefer the blue one, mix it with some smokey makeup for a better final effect.
The old-fashioned way to plump your lips with a pink eye liner is a total disaster. If your lips are too thin, get yourself an awesome gloss with plumping effect or simply go for a brighter color which will help you to compensate the volume with the artistic colorful side of your lips. Still, keep in mind that this method is OK, but to apply it you need to be a real pro, because every wrong move leads to the wrong result!
5.Wearing Glitter 24/7
Glitter is cool, but only for a night out and mostly in dark places like a disco. This means that you need to forget about wearing glossy eye shadows at work and avoid them on formal events and occasions, too, where the classy line can be better emphasized with common shades in green or brown.
