Of course, not all girls and women are fully skilled or even possess the same tools, but we have to know the common mistakes that many make when applying makeup, in order to avoid them in the coming times, and here are some of them:
The wrong degree of foundation
The most common mistake, the skin color after foundation may be acceptable to you while applying it in normal lighting, but in sunlight, the mismatch of the two colors will appear, as if you are applying an extra layer.
Also, you may choose the appropriate degree, and when you go out, you face the same problem, because some species are oxidized and the color appears darker when confronted with air.
There is a simple trick to know whether the foundation will oxidize or not, all you have to do is put a layer on your hand, wait a minute, then put another layer next to it, if they are the same degree, then this means that it has not oxidized.
Use concealer frequently
Many mistakenly apply too much concealer.
If you select the wrong color and layer too thick, you will end up accentuating wrinkles and an older face.
To avoid this, choose liquid types that contain brightening particles to make your skin look healthy and natural without thickening the layer.
Blush is in the wrong place
Make sure to apply blush to the top of the cheeks, not the central part.
Instead of trying to accentuate the central area, try focusing on the cheekbones, but don’t get too close to the nose. Using soft, natural shades makes your face look younger and gives it a romantic glow.
Exaggerated drawing eyebrows
It’s best if your eyebrows are a little darker than your hair color, but if you overdo it, the look will be unnatural.
When using powder, gel, or pencil to fill in the eyebrows, do not be in a hurry nor make them thick.
Unpreparing the skin
Preparing your skin well is your key to makeup, so you must prepare your skin first before applying makeup.
You should not put makeup on dry, flaky skin, as this will not achieve firmness for foundation, and oily skin will cause makeup to melt and become unstable as well.
Before applying makeup, you must first gently exfoliate your skin and apply a moisturizing cream that suits your skin.
And don’t forget to apply primer, as it serves as the first bed for makeup, and it also protects your skin from the stress that makeup may cause.
Out of place contour lines
Contouring helps define the contours of your face and accentuate some of its cheekbones. It takes some time to get to know the bone structure of your face, as everyone has a different face.
Do not be afraid to experiment several times when drawing contouring, so that you can finally create the uniqueness of your own way, which you will then make sure that it highlights your features as you like.
Do not neglect the blending process, so that your face does not look streaked, as contouring shows best results when mixed in the right way.
Neglecting the debugger
Dark circles under the eyes are a problem for many people, as as we age, these defects become more apparent.
And using concealer will only aggravate the problem.
On the other hand, applying some corrector will fix the problem, try applying it to dark areas only and keep it as thick as possible.
Blending eyeshadow messy
When using more than one shade, you will get the best eyeshadows by mixing them. By mixing colors, you can hide the line between the two shades.
However, you may exaggerate and turn the mixing into a mess with the colors disappearing or their appearance muddy.
Be careful not to apply the shadows to the entire eye, as this will make you look older, but only apply the shadows in the outer corners of your eyes.
Kohl on the lower eyelid
Putting the black color on the waterline of the lower eyelid is not a mistake in itself, but if you want to have large eyes, this will not achieve what you want, rather it will backfire.
If you want to have wide eyes, you can use white eyeliner on the lower eyelid waterline or beige.
Exaggerate the lip line
Drawing the lines a little further from the upper and lower lip lines is one of the makeup tricks for getting plump lips.
It is worth noting that the exaggeration in drawing these lines, and the inaccuracy, makes the appearance of the lips unnatural at all.
If the lips are naturally narrow, then dark lipstick should be avoided, as dark colors make them appear smaller
