Everyone knows it. The makeup’s job is to highlight woman’s beauty. Women use makeup to hide their pimples, for example. But can cosmetics achieve the opposite effect sometimes? The answer is: yes! Many women make mistakes in makeup and don’t even know about it. It is perfectly possible that you are not aware of it, of course. Therefore, I made a list of makeup mistakes women often make. Skip to the next page and read the 10 main mistakes you need to avoid, unless you want to look older than you really are.
Blush has the power to transform a face. Be careful! Blush of darker shades make you look older. That’s why you need to get rid of matte and dark colors.
Mascara on the upper lashes makes your eyes more emphatic. Mascara put on the lower lashes, on the contrary, brings up wrinkles around the eyes.
3. Eye Pencil.
If you draw your lower eyelid with a black pencil, your eyes will look narrower. This is one of the biggest mistakes in makeup. If you want to make your eyelashes look thicker, draw the spaces between them.
4. Brown eye shadows.
This is one of those makeup mistakes that everybody makes. Brown shadow brightens up your eyes, but they emphasize weariness of the eyelids. It steals your eyes’ youth.
5. Black Eyeliner.
Black eyeliner is harder to match with your tone of skin, than other shades. Blue, brown, green, or violet are much better choices. From now on I’ll never use black eyeliner ever again. You?
6. Thick and straight lines.
If you think that a straight line on the upper lid makes your look confident, this is not true. A clear, thick line without blending definitely ages women. Do you only use mascara and eye liner? Draw a soft line. This will make you will look more natural. I cannot believe that there are still who do this! Anyway, number 7 is even worse!
7. Lip liner.
A lip liner is perfect, but only if you have a steady hand and if it matches with the shade of your lip gloss or lipstick. If it doesn’t match, it will it age you.
8. Concealer under your makeup.
Too much concealer under makeup instead of concealing flaws will make your face appear older. Use concealer only to hide your pimples.
Ill-chosen color of foundation adds 10 years to your actual age. Go with a tone that perfectly matches your skin. Last but not least, number 10 is a must-read!
Too much powder on the face dries out the skin and makes you look older. Makeup artists recommend to put a thin layer of powder on the chin and nose.
