Just as important as being aware of good make up tips is to be aware of bad makeup tips. Bad makeup tips can age you, leave you feeling embarrassed or just not looking your best. So, as the title says ladies, take heed and don’t try these makeup tips at home.
Too much blusher
Blusher can really help to enhance natural features but it’s important to choose a shade that complements your skin tone. Wearing the wrong shade of blusher or applying to much can make you end up looking like a clown. You also need to make sure that your blush, lipstick, and eye shadow complement one another. If not, your makeup may look harsh and too over-the-top.
Not getting the smokey eye look right
Wearing a smoky eye can be tricky and there are some things that you have to be careful of. You should never combine a smokey eye with a bold lipstick. Doing so can be too dramatic and you may look overdone. When wearing a smokey eye it’s best to remember that “less is more” when choosing a lipstick shade.
If you are looking for a dark lipstick to add to your collection, but want to avoid following any bad makeup tips, stay away from black lipsticks. Jet black lipsticks are too harsh and if you have pale skin they can make you look very washed out.
Going heavy on the bronzer
Bronzer is a great way to help give your skin a natural, healthy glow. The only problem with using bronzer is that many people tend to put too much on. This can easily make your face look orange or like you’ve applied way too much self-tanner. When you choose a bronzer, make sure that you don’t select one that’s more than two shades darker than your natural skin colour. After you’ve applied bronzer be sure to go outside or by a window to check for streaks in a natural light.
