Makeup Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

by Portia J McComas Beautician
Find out the top five makeup mistakes people make, and what you can do to avoid or fix them.

Dark Liner, Light Lips

Applying lip liner with lipstick plumps up your puckers. However, if your liner is significantly darker than your lip color, you end up looking trashy and tacky. Avoid doing this by matching your lip liner as close to your lipstick as possible. When in doubt, make your liner lighter than your lip color. If you have already made a mistake, fill in lips with liner. It always looks better to wear color in unison.

Extra Long Eyeliner

Eyeliner is tricky, and you need a steady hand to apply it. However, if you have made a mistake, and have extended eyeliner too much on the outer corners of your eyes, then shift your intended look to "cat eyes."

"Cat eyes" have been popular for the past few seasons, and the trend is not going anywhere soon. Just draw another line above the eyeliner you already have on, and tilt the outer corners upward to create a sexy "cat eye" effect.

Clumpy Mascara

Everyone wants lustrous eyelashes, but some people go overboard with mascara, and their lashes end up looking clumpy and untidy. For cleaner application, start from your lash line, wiggle mascara wand from left to right, and go upward. Doing so separates lashes, and applies formula evenly. And if you have already added one too many coats of mascara, then use a lash comb to comb out the clumps.

Dramatic Line of Blush

Flushed cheeks give you healthy glow. However, if you use a strong hand, your blush can look harsh, obvious and unflattering. To make blush appear natural, use a bigger makeup brush that blends well. A lot of cheap makeup brands offer quality brushes. Eco Tools brand, sold at most drugstores, is easy to use and affordable.

When applying blush, avoid using too much at once. Try building color little by little. Also, apply blush first to the apples of your cheeks, and brush color on in circular motion, while gently moving upwards and back to your hairline and ear.

Obvious Foundation Line on the Jaw

A noticeable foundation line around your jaw makes you look like you are wearing a mask. Avoid this incident by selecting the right color, and applying foundation in natural light. Also, during application, blend foundation beyond your jaw line, down to your neck. Doing so eliminates a harsh, obvious line right on your jaw. For better blending, use a makeup sponge or foundation brush.
