Common Mistake To Avoid When Applying Makeup

When it comes to makeup, the mistakes you create can truly affect your look. Remember that first impressions mean everything. Therefore, it is very important to make yourself beautiful, even fabulous, before leaving your home. There are many mistakes that we end up making, even without the idea that we are doing everything wrong. For example, have a brush that meets all of your makeup needs. Too much bronze, the wrong foundation, and poorly mixed makeup. Everyone is guilty of many of these mistakes, so to avoid the embarrassment of walking around like a clown; here are  mistakes you can make and how to fix them.

 Apply makeup on dry skin

This is one of the most common mistakes. Applying makeup to dry skin can affect your face, causing dryness and flaking. You can prevent dryness and peeling by exfoliating your skin once a week, or find alternative ways, like moisturizer and cleansing, to get rid of dead skin cells. When your skin is wet, you can apply makeup. The results will be incredible. Never apply makeup on a dry face without prior wetting.

 Bad or wrong foundation

It is the worst mistake. We tend to forget that the foundation comes in a wide range of different shades. We have all been where we choose the wrong base that does not fit our face. To make sure you don`t look like a clown, make sure you choose the correct foundation. Go to a cosmetic store and search for specific shades which can be close to your complexion; then extend the base to the side of the jaw to see which matches your skin.

Too much use of suntan lotion

Going to the extreme with a bronzer is also one of the worst mistakes you can make. Bronzer only adds warmth to your complexion. Too much sunscreen makes you look muddy or burned, so you don`t want to look like someone swimming in the mud. Apply Bronzer only where the sun hits you; places like the forehead and nose. Do not forget to also apply it to the neck.

 Dirty makeup brushes

We are all guilty of this negligence. Most women make this mistake by putting on makeup, using dirty sponges and brushes. Dirty brushes and sponges cause a rash. Applying makeup with the same brush produces uneven makeup application. To make sure your brushes and sponges are free of dirt and bacteria, wash them with a mild shampoo and warm water at least once a week.

Apply too much makeup

When you apply too much makeup on your face so they makes your look very old or bad. The only time you need to apply too much makeup is if you have severe acne, instead avoid applying too much foundation. Instead, use a single coat of concealer and foundation to cover minor stains.

Buy makeup without trying

You`re in a hurry to go home, so you stop at the store, put on makeup and go. It`s not a good idea. Do you remember how you try on your clothes before buying? The same goes for makeup. You should try your makeup because it is important. When makeup comes into contact with air, it changes color and texture due to oxidation.

Makeup test in bad areas

You are probably doing this now and it is also wrong. Normally, we test the foundation and lipstick on the back of our hands, but this will not give accurate results. To find out if a base is the right shade for you, put it on your jaw.

Do not use primer

This is an important step that mostly people ignore. This is the most essential part in makeup because a primer helps foundation to stay longer.

Stick to a product

We all have this makeup product that we love so much and that we cannot live without using it. This routine is some time dangerous because you probably need to try different and new products.

Apply the powder in the wrong places

Sometimes we spray the entire face and it is not necessary. The correct way to use the powder is to apply it to the face in areas that tend to be oily. Use a large powder brush on the powder and remove excess; then gently rub on your face.

Use the same product throughout the year

Throughout the seasons, the face and body skin also changes. So the product that suits you in last season may not perfect in this season. The foundation, makeup products and skin care cream that suits you in the summer may tend to be too dry for your skin in the winter. It is advisable to change your makeup product according to the season.

Apply the wrong blush shade

This error is widely compromised. When applying blush, you need to choose the shade that matches your natural blush. If you wear intense lip color, make sure the blush is lighter.

Do not apply eyeliner depending on the shape of your eyes

Avoid making this mistake. You should take note of the shape of your eyes. When your eyes are close together, the thickest part of the lining should be in the outer corner of the eye, as this will make the eye look bigger.

Eyebrow overload

For perfect brows, avoid overfilling. Because when you overfill or use a shade that is too dark to fill in the brows, they will look very heavy and intense. The perfect eyebrows give your face that incredible look.

Apply a light concealer

There is a myth that when looking for a concealer, you should choose a shade or two lighter than your complexion. You can apply a concealer that suits your face color or skin complexion.
