Makeup not only makes a person look
A lot of people have a love-hate relationship with makeup. While it usually makes them look amazing, there may be days when that shade of lipstick isn’t going with the skin tone or the eye makeup
There is a whole list of makeup mistakes people make that can break the look. Read on to find out if these are the makeup mistakes you are probably making.
Wearing waterproof mascara every day
Waterproof mascara is amazing and all, but not always. The water-resistant formula can dry out your lashes causing them to break easily. Also, removing the waterproof mascara takes a whole lot of effort which can again damage your lashes. Keep it reserved for weddings and parties. It’s best to use a normal mascara daily, that comes off easily at the end of the day without causing distress to your lashes.
Using expired makeup
It’s time to check your makeup stash and clear it off all the products that have crossed the expiry date. Old and expired products are not safe to use and can lead to rashes, allergies and irritation. Also, they do not give the best results. Always check the makeup products for expiry dates and use them accordingly. Discard all the expired products and restock, even if it's expensive.
Not cleaning the makeup brushes
Makeup brushes are important tools that give you the right application and finish. Keeping them clean prolongs their life and saves you the trouble of breakouts and infection. Old, dirty brushes are a breeding ground
Applying too much
Ignoring your brows
You will be surprised to see what a well-groomed brow can do to your face. Eyebrows frame the face and eyes and if they are defined, they can enhance your appearance by making you look sharp without much effort. Unkempt, thin and unruly brows can make you look shoddy and even older. Pay attention to your brows, get them trimmed to keep them in shape. If you have thin, sparse brows, use brow powder, eyebrow pencil or gel to fill them in. This will make them look fuller and darker giving a youthful appearance to your face.
Too dark brows
Now that we know the importance of eyebrow grooming, overdoing it can also pose a problem. If you fill your brows, use a product, whether its brow powder, pencil or gel that's close to your natural hair
Wearing the wrong foundation shade
Foundations cover blemishes on the skin while making it look naturally flawless. Always strive to pick a foundation shade that's closest to your skin tone. Foundation lighter than your skin tone will make you look ashy while darker shades will make you look like a mismatched shade card. While picking your foundation, always try it on the face and not just on
Using wrong lipstick shade
Picking the wrong blush
Bright, flushed cheeks are a sign of good health, and good makeup is all about mimicking that natural blush. Blushes have been a part of every makeup lover’s vanity
