We all have a fixed makeup routine by now and we also might be making some makeup mistakes we didn’t know about, and it takes a lot of time for us women to perfect a fixed routine that works for you. But what if you are not doing something right in that routine as well, and you don’t know it yet? Well, I have listed some of the common mistakes made while doing our makeup.
Makeup Mistakes You Didn’t Know You Were Making:
1. Dotting your under-eye concealer.
Many of us apply concealer by just dotting it under the eye, well you are using the concealer to its maximum benefit. You are supposed to apply it in a triangle shape under your eye. This will help in evening out the darkness and also highlight you’re under eye and draw the attention to your eyes.
2. Applying bronzer all over your face.
Bronzer is used to accentuate your bone structure and complexion. Applying the bronzer all over face fails to do so and you will look like a weirdo. Apply the bronzer to your cheekbones and jawline and little on your forehead to get a flawless look. Also, avoid using shiny bronzer especially if your skin is oily.
3. Making the brow arch too dramatic.
When you are filling in your brows, sometimes we make the archway above making it look unnatural. You should just follow the natural curve already there and to make sure you don’t make yourself look like an angry person 😀
4. Applying eyeliner only on the bottom lash line.
Many of us, in a hurry or being lazy, apply eyeliner just to the bottom lash line because obviously applying winged eyeliner is time taking. I feel you… But only applying eyeliner to the bottom lash line makes your eyes look smaller and gives your face an older look, which you definitely wouldn’t want. If you are in a hurry just apply a thin line on the top lash line and it will give you a more awake and lifted look.
5. Connecting the top and bottom liner.
Some of us connect the top and bottom liner which makes your eyes look smaller. If you want to make your eyes appear larger then try leaving a slight gap between the top and bottom eyeliner at the outer corner.
6. Applying blush only on the apples of your cheeks.
If you apply blush only to apples of your cheeks then it may make you look like a clown rather than it being natural, which none of us would want. Instead, apply it to your cheeks and upward on your cheekbones as well. This will give your face a healthy glow and give you a natural look.
7. Using dirty makeup brushes.
Most of us use dirty makeup brushes and be lazy to not clean the brushes at regular intervals. Applying makeup with dirty makeup brushes makes you look dull and even causes breakouts on your skin. So, it is always important to clean your brushes and keep them fresh to avoid damaging your skin.
8. Pumping your mascara wand.
Many people pump the mascara wand in and out of its tube thinking it will give more of the product. But, doing this traps the air inside the mascara tube which can breed bacteria and also cause the mascara to dry up quickly which while applying mascara makes your lashes look clumpy. It is hence recommended to gently twist the wand in circular motions to get more product and then apply, this will help in making the lashes look much better and help the mascara do its actual work.
Now that you know what all makeup mistakes you might be making, you can keep them in mind and try not to make it again. And also, not only beginners are most likely to make these makeup mistakes but anyone can be prone to them. It’s easy and normal to make some makeup mistakes without even realizing it.
