Makeup mistakes can be all too common. Fortunately, there are some tips that can help you avoid them.
Start with good skin care. Proper skin care is the foundation of a great makeup look and will help avoid any potential mishaps.
Cleanse your face twice a day, moisturize and use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from sun damage.
Choose the right shades for your skin tone and complexion. You should always match the colors you use to your specific skin tone or shade, in order to create a natural, blended look on your face.
If you have pink undertones go for warmer shades such as peaches and oranges, while those with yellow tones should pick cooler colors such as blues and purples.
Blend properly to avoid harsh lines. Make sure you blend blush, bronzer, contour and highlight properly so that the makeup looks seamless on your skin.
The easiest way is to use circular motions with a brush or sponge and make sure everything is blended well before moving onto the next step of applying eye shadow or eyeliner.
Practice moderation when it comes to makeup application. Too much of anything won't look good so it’s important to find a balance between using enough product to see its effects but not overdoing it and ending up looking cakey or overly made-up.
Keep brushes clean for better results. Make sure you're cleaning your brushes at least once a week since dirt and bacteria on dirty brushes can cause irritation, breakouts and other problems when applied directly onto the face.
