Five Make-Up Mistakes to Avoid

Along with clothes, accessories and hairstyles, make-up really helps you to express yourself visually. It is a good idea, then, to make sure you are creating the impression you want with your cosmetics, and that people are looking at you for the reasons you intended when you step out to face the world. This article outlines five common make-up mistakes that will detract from your beauty, rather than enhance it.

 

Too Much Powder

 

A light covering of translucent powder applied in the right places, with a brush, can help to set make-up and prevent shining. Take care not to overdo it, though, or your skin is likely to appear pale and chalky, and the mask-like finish will only hide your best features. Even worse, the powder will sink into any fine lines or wrinkles and magnify them, aging you in the process. None of this is good news, so think twice before reaching for the powder pouf.

 

Playing up Eyes and Lips

 

It is a general rule that you should never wear heavy eye make-up when you are rocking dramatic lips. Not only can it be dating, but also there is a risk you will end up looking like a clown. Make a statement with one or the other, not both. By doing this, you will make the feature you are choosing to highlight stand out much more than it would if your whole look is too busy.
