15 Makeup Mistakes You May Be Making Every Day

When it comes to makeup and beauty, the mistakes you make can really affect your appearance. Remember, first impressions mean everything. Therefore, it is very important to look beautiful, even fabulous, before leaving the house. There are several mistakes that we end up making, even without having any idea that we are doing everything wrong. Like having a brush that works for all your makeup needs. Too much bronze, the wrong foundation, and poor blending of makeup. Everyone is guilty of many of these, so to save you from the embarrassment of walking like a clown, here are 15 mistakes you may be making and how to correct them.

1. Apply makeup to dry skin

This is one of the most common mistakes. Applying makeup to dry skin can take a toll on your face, causing dryness and flaking. You can prevent dryness and flaking by exfoliating your skin once a week or finding alternative ways, such as moisturizing and cleansing, to get rid of dead skin cells. When your face is already damp, you can go ahead and apply your makeup. The results will be amazing. Never, ever, make up a dry face without moisturizing it first.

2. Wrong basis

This is the worst mistake. We tend to forget that foundation comes in a wide range of different shades. We have all been there where we choose the wrong foundation that is not suitable for our face. To make sure you don’t look like a clown, make sure you choose the right foundation. Go to a store where they sell beauty products and look for two different shades that are close to your skin tone; then sample foundation on the side of your jawline to see which foundation matches your skin.

3. Exaggerate tan

Going to the extreme with suntan lotion is also one of the worst mistakes you can make. Bronzer just adds warmth to your complexion. Too much bronzer makes you look muddy or burnt, so you don’t want to look like someone who just swam in mud. You only apply Bronzer in places where the sun hits you; places like the forehead and nose. Don’t forget to apply it on the neck as well.

4. Dirty makeup brushes

We are all guilty of this carelessness. Most women make this mistake by applying makeup using dirty sponges and brushes. Dirty brushes and sponges cause breakouts. Applying makeup with the same brush produces an even application of makeup. To make sure your brushes and sponges are free of dirt and bacteria, wash them with a mild shampoo and warm water at least once a week.

5. Apply too much makeup

This phrase is a cliché but very important: “less is more”. Why is this? It’s because too much makeup can make you look too old. The only time you should apply too much makeup is if you have severe acne, so avoid putting on too much foundation instead. Instead, use a single layer of concealer and foundation to cover minor blemishes.

6. Buy makeup without trying

You’re in a hurry to get home, so you stop by the store, grab your makeup and leave. This is not a good idea. Do you remember how you try on clothes before you buy them? The same applies to makeup. You have to try on your makeup because it’s important. When makeup comes into contact with the air, it changes color and texture due to oxidation.

7. Trying makeup on the wrong areas

You’re probably doing this right now and this is wrong too. We normally test foundation and lipstick on the back of our hands, but this will not give accurate results. To find out if a foundation is the right shade for you, place it on your jawline. For lipstick, you can apply it on your lips or on your fingers.

8. Not using primer

An important stage that we ignore. This is the most important stage of makeup application because a primer ensures that the makeup glides on easily and helps the makeup stay on longer without fading.

9. Stick to one product

We all have that makeup product that we love so much and can’t live without using it. This habit is very dangerous because you probably miss trying new and different products.

10. Applying powder in the wrong places

Sometimes we powder the whole face and that is not necessary. The correct way to use the powder is by applying it to the face where it tends to be oily. Use a large powder brush on the powder and tap off excess; then gently rub into your face.

11. Use the same product throughout the year

We often forget that as the seasons change, skin changes too. So what worked for you last season may not work for you this season. Foundation that worked well for you in the summer may tend to be too dry for your skin in the winter. It is advisable to change the makeup product according to the season.

12. Applying the wrong shade of blush

This mistake is widely made. When applying blush, you should choose the shade that matches your natural blush. If you’re wearing a bold lip color, make sure the blush is a lighter shade.

13. Not applying eyeliner according to the shape of your eyes

Avoid making this mistake. Remember that the placement of the eyeliner is just as important as the color. You should take note of the shape of your eyes. When your eyes are close together, the thickest part of the liner should be on the outer corner of the eye, as this will make the eye look larger.

14. Eyebrows that are too full

For perfect brows, avoid overfilling. Because when you overfill, or use too dark a shade to fill in your brows, then they will look too heavy and intense. Perfect eyebrows give your face that amazing look.

15. Light Concealer Application

There is a myth that when looking for a concealer you should choose one or two shades lighter than your skin tone. This is wrong and a very big mistake. You should apply a concealer that suits your skin tone.

If you keep all of the above in mind, chances are you’ll look perfect by avoiding all of the above mistakes. The previous article will be very useful for this purpose.
