Beauty Mistakes You’re Making


Nothing makes you feel better than the day that your makeup comes out looking flawless. Unfortunately, once in a while when you leave the house and catch a glimpse of your reflection in a mirror, you notice that things look at tad bit different than they did in your bathroom mirror. You thought you left your house looking like a goddess, but the girl staring back at you in the mirror screams otherwise. Here are some of the beauty mistakes you’re making:

Wearing too much powder.
Wearing too much powder can leave you looking dry and cakey and will destroy your natural radiance. It can also settle into fine lines and wrinkles.

Playing up both eyes and lips.
If you’re rocking a smoky eye, opt for a nude lip. If you’re playing up your glamorous red lip, go for a softer look on the eyes.  Playing up both eyes and lips at the same time can make you look too overdone and dramatic.

You go tweezer crazy.
Have you every thought how important eyebrows are for your beauty? Well, let me tell you that they are VERY important. Over tweezed eyebrows look horrible.

Over contouring your face.
Contouring only works to your benefit when it’s blended correctly and people can’t actually tell you did it. Over contouring or contouring with the wrong shades will not only be unflattering, but can make you look odd as well. Here is an article about the top 10 best highlighters for contouring. Also, here is a list of the best bronzers that will help you fake that summer glow all year round.

Using the wrong shade of foundation.
The skintone you have naturally looks the best on you — don’t try to change it. Using a foundation that is too light or too dark is a mistake we see all too frequently. When you’re picking out your foundation, match it to the skin tone on your neck or the back of your wrists.

Blushing like a clown.
Over blushing your cheeks is a makeup disaster that will make you look crazy.  If you have an olive skin tone stick to warmer blush tones, fair skin with rosy tones and dark skin with berry tones.

Your concealer is too light.
When your under-eye concealer is too light you can actually bring attention to the spot you’re trying to camouflage. Test the concealer out on your wrist before you buy it to make sure it matches the same shade.
