Makeup is a tricky subject and if you're anything like me, you probably love makeup but you're hopeless at getting that eyeliner straight. So what if there were a few specific things you had to avoid during your makeup? That would probably make the job a lot easier.
Even if you weren't getting it right at all times, at least you know what to avoid. So I found out a few important but very common mistakes women make while applying makeup and here's how you can avoid them easily.
So here's another step towards a flawless makeup.
Applying foundation cream on the lips could work as a primer. It will definitely bring out the essence of your lip color and make it last longer as well.
Make sure you apply powder only on the oily areas like the T-zone. If you're powdering your entire face, it would make your makeup look cakey.
While applying liner on your top and bottom lash lines, make sure you only cover 2/3rd of the portion. This way, you avoid smudging and prevent your eyes from looking too small.
It is a common myth that shaking the tube will cause the mascara inside to even out and not dry easily. But that's pretty much the opposite. It will cause the air and bacteria inside the tube to mix with your mascara reducing its life.
Hence, if you want an even mascara application, try rolling the tube between your palms next time.
It is a thumb rule to apply mascara after you're done curling your lashes. It prevents lashes from flaking and also prevents your mascara from smudging.
It's a complete no-no to apply blush on your cheek bones. They make you look red and flushed so in order to avoid a clown face, apply blush under your cheek bones mainly in the hollow region.
Make sure your under eye concealer matches the color of your foundation so that your dark circles aren't highlighted too much.
To make sure your lipstick stays intact all day, line the entire lip line instead of only the rim.
