The first thing you do in the morning is put on some makeup. Is there a way to make that process more enjoyable and efficient? There are plenty of makeup mistakes that could be causing your day miserable without you even knowing it. Here are common ones to avoid.
If we want our face to look its best, then there are some everyday things we should try and avoid doing before putting on our makeup.
Makeup Mistakes You’re Probably Making
Women of all ages, shapes, and sizes can find it challenging to apply makeup. This is because we’re not teaching each other how to do our makeup the right way. It’s time for you to learn some tips on avoiding making these common mistakes when applying your makeup. Let’s start with the foundation: Foundation should be used in a thin layer and created from your jawline to your hairline (think about it as an upside-down triangle). It would help if you blended outwards, using strokes upward. Next, let’s talk blush: Apply blush in a circular motion with a light hand so that you don’t overdo it. Now moving onto lips: use a lip liner first before applying lipstick or gloss for more excellent definition and minor bleeding into fine.
- The first mistake that many women make is not correctly moisturizing their skin before applying foundation. Foundation should never be used on dry, uneven skin.
- As you may have noticed, your makeup will look different throughout the day depending on how much water and oil your face produces.
- Applying a primer before the foundation can help extend the wear of your makeup and help create an even canvas for application.
- Applying too much foundation: Foundation should be applied in thin layers for a natural look and finish. Using too much can lead to a cakey appearance of clogged pores which will only worsen as time goes on. You may need more coverage if you have severe acne, but otherwise, try using less product for better results.
- Using dark eyeshadow at night: Dark eyeshadows should be reserved for daytime.
- Not blending well enough – You want to mix everything, so it’s one even tone on your face and looks natural. If there are any harsh lines or edges from where you applied too much product, use a brush or Q-tip in the area to fix it!
- Not using primer – primer can help reduce redness and give your skin an overall smoother appearance, which is why I always recommend using it before foundation!
I know that we all want to look our best every day, but it can be hard to do. So sometimes we go for the easy option and don’t wear makeup at all. But this is a big mistake! You must invest in your appearance by wearing the proper foundation and concealer to create an even skin tone on your face, as well as eye shadow or eyeliner to highlight your eyes. It would help if you also tried blushing on your cheeks to give them some color, so they aren’t so pale. If you follow these simple tips, I promise you’ll feel more confident next time.
