Don’t Fall Victim to these Common Makeup Mistakes

Ladies, sometimes less is more, and this applies to your makeup application. From wearing too much powder to heavy under-eye concealer, the application can make a world of a difference. One wrong swish of the brush can add a few extra years to your overall appearance. Before you panic, we have come up with some solutions that will definitely benefit you in the long haul. Take our word for it and don’t allow these common beauty mistakes to age you.

Applying a massive amount of blush below your cheekbones does not boost your youthfulness. Instead, it pulls your face downward and presents the illusion of sagginess. As a precautionary tale when applying makeup always stroke onward and upward because it adds an amazing lift effect.

I am guilty of only rockin’ eyeliner right below the lower lash line. However, this is a definite no-no. Uh-oh!  According to makeup mavens, this technique draws attention to fine lines and wrinkles not to mention this approach also adds a droopy effect as well.

Thin eyebrows scream, “SURPRISE!” Avoid this look at all costs with proper grooming techniques such as maintaining full brows and utilizing the correct filling and shaping tools.

Also, there is such a thing as going overboard with too much under eye concealer. To avoid this common error, make sure your concealer application is light and your blending game is on fleek.

Last but not least, piling on tons of powder will ultimately create a cakey effect. If you don’t want to fall victim to this not-so-cool look, then invest in a lightweight, liquid-based foundation. As a finishing touch, dust a sprinkle or two of translucent setting powder because it will sustain your skin’s youthful, fresh, and exuberant appearance.
