Five mistakes to avoid while doing your Makeup
Makeup is something which is deeply incorporated in most of our lives. Makeup has the ability to enhance your looks and turn you into a Diva, if done rightly. On the other hand, it also has the ability to make you seem older than your age and completely ruin your look. So, to avoid a makeup disaster, let us inform you of some tips and mistakes to steer clear of.
NOT USING A MOISTURIZIER
Skin care is essential in achieving that glass skin makeup look. A good moisturizer can be your best friend when it comes to makeup. Moisturizing your face should be the first and most essential step in your makeup regimen. The texture you see after applying your foundation, will be next to zero if you carry out this step. We promise you that you will not regret investing in a good cream or moisturizer!
NOT USING A PRIMER
Most of us do not think priming our face is an important step and we go in straight with our foundation. This makes our foundation look patchy and can look undesirable up closely if you are out on a date night. Using a good primer would give your skin a more youthful look and will minimize the look of your pores. A small amount goes a long way!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT FOUNDATION
Foundation is a very vital product when it comes to makeup. Picking the right shade can be a tricky task. But do not fret, we are here to help you. Always go with a shade lighter than your actual skin tone because after you apply your foundation on your skin it oxidizes after a while, meaning it gets a bit darker. In addition, know your undertones before choosing a foundation shade. You can look at the veins on your wrist and judge by the color of them if your undertone is neutral, cool, or warm.
RUBBING INSTEAD OF DABBING
Dab dab dab! You must have heard beauty bloggers say that over and over again, and rightly so. Never pull the foundation around on your skin. This can lead to patchiness and the foundation leaving texture behind instead of blinding in properly in your skin. A dabbing motion will produce a more pristine finish and the foundation will spread more evenly on the skin and will make your skin look like skin instead of cake! A good beauty blender can help achieve a natural even looking finish.
GOING OVERBOARD WITH THE HIGHLIGHTER
A highlighter can help you achieve that sultry makeup look that is pleasing to the eyes. It can also make you look like a disco ball if done wrongly. While using a highlighter always remember to concentrate it on the high points of your face, like the tip of your nose, cheekbones, jawline, browbone, and cupids bow. It is very easy to get carried away while using a highlighter but trust us when we say less is more.
