5 Makeup Mistakes

With a combination of watching Youtube tutorials, reading articles, copying friends, etc., you think you know everything there is to know about how to do your makeup. Well, that’s not necessarily true. Here are 5 of the most common makeup mistakes:

1) Putting foundation all over your face

I know this sounds weird, because most people DO put foundation all over. Sometimes when you slather it on, it can make your face look like a mask which is not so attractive. Instead, try focusing on under your eyes, your chin, and if you have some covering up to do on your cheeks. When you put liquid foundation on your forehead, it can make your wrinkles stand out.

2) Putting bronzer all over your face

Just like foundation,  you shouldn’t put bronzer on your entire face. When you put bronzer all over the face instead of the proper bronzing area, your face will not look normal! Not only will it be obvious that you have so much bronzer on because it will look cakey and fake, but your neck will also show your true skin colour. The only place you should be bronzing are your cheek bones, the bridge of your nose and a bit of your forehead.

3) Not moisturizing before putting on makeup

Your face needs to be clean and moist before putting on any type of makeup. If you apply makeup on flakey skin, it will get even worse.

4) Black eyeliner on the bottom

There was definitely a time where this style was what was in. That time has passed. Black eyeliner on your tear line makes your eyes look smaller. Only use black eyeliner on the top. To make your eyes look even bigger, use a white eyeliner instead on your bottom lash line.

5) Using your wrist as a way to match foundation 

Your wrist is NOT the same colour as your face, and therefore not the best way to pick out a shade. Instead, put the makeup on your neck or bottom of your face to get the perfect match.
