From wearing the wrong shade of foundation to forgetting to moisturise daily. Here are some of the biggest makeup DON’TS.
- Applying Makeup To Dry Skin
It’s essential to exfoliate at least once a week because applying foundation onto dry skin will accentuate flakiness, and makeup will sit on the top of your face instead of blending in, Always remember smoother skin means smoother makeup application & a finished look.
2. Wearing the Wrong Shade Of Foundation
The biggest beauty blunder that a person could make is going out wearing the wrong shade of foundation. Choosing the right foundation or BB cream is key when it comes to getting your makeup to pop.
3. Applying Too Much Powder
Too much powder can cause layers of powder on skin which results in a cakey appearance. To avoid this find a powder that is the same colour as your foundation. If your powder is lighter than your foundation, you can end up looking pasty and pale, if your powder is darker, you will look like you’re wearing a mask.
4. Applying Matte Lipstick on Dry Lips
Matte lips can look incredibly beautiful & elegant, if you know how to wear them. Dry, dead skin is often what makes your lipstick look rough & uneven, so slough it off before applying a matte lipstick. Exfoliate your lips with a soft brush & then apply lip balm – This helps fill in any cracks so your matte lipstick will go on smooth & even.
5. Going Crazy On The Blush
While the right shade can instantly brighten a dull complexion, one wrong sweep of the brush can just as easily throw you into clown territory. Your blush shade is as important as your foundation. Always choose a shade that complements your skin tone be sure to use the correct brush.
6. Clumpy Mascara
We all want thicker lashes, but there’s a difference between “volume” and “clumps. Clumpy lashes are not a good look for anyone, Too much mascara on the brush can easily form clumps. The best way to get rid of excess on the brush is to lightly whipe the brush on a tissue before applying.
7. Dirty Brushes
Cleaning your makeup brushes is really important. When you don’t wash your brushes, they can accumulate bacteria, dust and dirt which can have a negative impact on your skin’s health resulting in acne, irritation, and skin infections.
8. Night Cleansing
Wash your face every single night to keep it healthy and glowing. If you don’t feel like washing it completely, use makeup remover cloths to take off your makeup. Not washing your makeup off before you sleep is likely to result in breakouts or even rashes.
