Tips: Avoiding And Fixing Makeup Blunders
Firstly, don’t try to look fairer or darker. Use the exact shade of foundation for your skin tone to avoid the first and one of the most commonly committed blunders – the wrong shade of foundation. Just NO!
The right way to choose your foundation shade is to take a little bit of it on your fingertips and blend it on your jawline or neckline. If you can’t see it once it’s properly blended, that’s your shade. Always blend the product well on your face, neck, and the exposed chest part so that the colors match. If your hands are dark, you can add some on your hands as well.
If you have gotten excess product on your face, take a wet wipe and gently dab it on your face to remove it. You can do the same in case of excess concealer.
This is one of the most cringe-worthy blunders you can commit. You are supposed to line the natural lining of your lips to add definition. Do not go all “Kylie Jenner” on your lips to make them look bigger. Use a neutral shade or a liner that is one shade brighter than your natural lip color.
If you get any excess liner on, take some makeup remover on a cotton pad and carefully remove the excess product without disturbing the lipstick.
Please be gentle while defining your brows so you don’t end up looking like you literally drew them on with a Sharpie! Use a color that looks natural on your face and make short, gentle strokes to fill them in.
In case you’ve gone overboard with your blush, use your compact powder to color-correct. You don’t want to end up looking like a clown.
When you want to lighten your lipstick, take a tissue paper, fold it in half, placing it between your upper and lower lips, and kiss it.
When applying eyeshadow, keep in mind not to extend it up to your eyebrows. When applying eyeliner, keep the lining as close to your waterline as possible for the best look.
