Makeup Mistakes!


This happens a lot with women ,there's nothing wrong in  experimenting with makeup , but there are certain rules that need to be kept in mind.

Wearing the wrong foundation shade

Foundation isn't supposed to give your skin a bit of a tan. After all, that's what bronzers are for. Instead, "it's supposed to create a perfect, smooth complexion and cover-up any imperfections. This is why you should always use a foundation which blends in with your skin , testing on your jawline (not your hand!) before buying, and when possible, ask for a sample first. That way you can try it at home -- and look at your skin in various lighting situations -- to make sure the shade you choose looks natural.

Applying makeup on dry, flaky skin

 the results of slathering on foundation over chapped skin is "horrific," ,. Foundation will only emphasize the flakes by sitting on top of them instead of blending in with your skin. Fix the dryness by exfoliating regularly (to get rid of flakes) and following that up with a rich moisturizer. Smoother skin means a much smoother application and finished look.

Trying to "plump" your lips

You've probably heard, or tried, the trick of lining just outside your natural lip line to make your lips look bigger. But it's way easier said than done. One wrong move and you'll end up looking like Pamela Anderson circa 1993. If you are going to attempt it, use a lip liner the same shade as your lipstick on the outer line of your lips, without passing over it. Fill in your lips as well -- that way if your lipstick fades, you don't wind up with only a line around your mouth.

Over-tweezing (or ignoring) your eyebrows

"When [brows are] well groomed they can enhance your eyes and your entire look. So head to a professional to get an ideal shape. While you do want to tame overgrown brows, you don't want to tweeze too much. "As we get older, our brows naturally become sparser, so if you tweeze your brows too thin they might never fully grow back. So just stick with cleaning up the area around your brows and follow their natural arch for your best shape.

 Wearing an entire eye palette on your lids

Just because your compact came with four or more colors packaged together doesn't mean you have to paint them all onto your eyelids at once,". Instead, she recommends wearing no more than three shades at a time: a medium one on your lids, a lighter one near your brow bone and a dark one as liner. But for everyday, you really only need a sweep of one shade across your lid.
