Makeup mistakes and their solutions (II)
We continue to show you how to makeup, commenting on some of the most common makeup mistakes and how to avoid them. Pick makeup brushes:
5. Apply too much lipstick/lipgloss
We all like looking a long lasting and intense color lipstick. There is a tendency to apply too much product or re-apply the lipgloss/lipstick during the day. Do not exceed applying the lipstick. There is a considerable risk that they will end up in a sticky texture, cracked or that they stain clothing. Watch out!
6. Too much eyeliner
It is fashionable and we love it but it is one of those makeup products to be careful when applying, the eyeliner. The same about the eye shadows: excessive product on an incorrect application can give way to a terrifying or comical look (panda effect). If you find it difficult to apply, use a long lasting eye pencil or other formulas for eyeliners. Too much product will not highlight your eyes, but will make them look smaller instead. Advice: use the eyeliner moderately.
7. Do not overstep the mark
Another common mistake among makeup amateurs is to use the lip liner without knowing how to apply it. Although you think it may help you create an illusion of thick lips, if you exit the line around the lip, the effect may be terrible (very vulgar). If you wish your lips to look thicker, apply a touch of gloss in the middle of the lips (upper & lower). You will get volume without looking like a clown.
8. Too much powder
When we debut in the make-up world, there is a tendency to abuse some products like loose powders. They are never enough, esp. if you have oily or combination skin. There are some other products to help eliminate skin shine apart from the makeup powders: cosmetic treatments for oily skin and hydrating-mattifying products. Loose powders are used to seal the makeup base or used as a mineral makeup base itself. Keep in mind that you always have to remove the excess of product from the brush and not to apply powders on skin folds to avoid highlighting wrinkles.
In order to be introduced in the makeup art and get to practice with all the best possible products, nothing better than the Elizabeth Arden makeup box of 19 pieces: Blockbuster Makeup. It has all the right stuff to go from amateur to professional.
Making mistakes is human. We learn from rather than suffer for the mistakes we do make. You can follow the steps about makeup tricks that we show on our blog 😉
