You can use makeup to get a natural or a glamourous look. When you do not use the right technique, it is possible to look out of sync and overdone. These tips will help you prevent mistakes and create the desired effect through the application of makeup. You will not have a case of making a cosmetic faux pas of using the wrong combination of colors and cosmetics when using makeup. Use makeup to highlight your best facial features, as this also boost confidence and self-esteem. Choose makeup products wisely so you don’t look cakey or older than your age.

Foundations mistakes to avoid

BB creams and tinted moisturizers can be used instead of foundations, if you are still in the art of perfecting the application of foundation. Never apply foundation right after washing your face. Always use a primer before you use a foundation. Applying foundation directly without the use of the base is the makeup mistake that women usually make. After application of foundation, dab some sponge on the face and neck to remove the excess foundation. You can also use the fan brush to get a perfect blend after you are done applying foundation. Avoid using excess concealer and foundation around the eye area. Always use your fingertips to lightly dab concealer and foundation around this area.

Choose the right shade of foundation that make your skin look smoother and brighter. Do not use shades that are darker than your skin tone to get a tan finish. Use bronzers to get a tanned look.The purpose of a foundation is also to cover up blemishes and imperfections on the face. Test the tone of the foundation on the jawline instead of your hand to get the right tone that suits the texture and color of your skin.

If you have a dry or a flaky skin, use a moisturizer or a tinted moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type instead of a foundation.

Choosing the shades of eyeshadows

Eyeshadows in offbeat colors suit very few people. You can try the edgy look if you are working as a model for a fashion magazine. For your daily dose of makeup, choose a shade in the tints and hues of brown, pink, orange, or black. Unless you are confident you have what it takes to carry the edgy look, do not use the yellow, blue, or any of the funky colors for eyeshadow. The eyeshadow that you use, should not look too dark. You can dab the excess eyeshadow with a sponge or an earbud.

Lipliners are passe

There are better ways to pump up your lips. Always use the same color of lip liner as that of the lipstick shade and blend them together. Never use a darker or a different color shade for the lip liner, that does not match the shade of your lipstick, because it looks tacky. Moisturize your lips before you apply any shade. You can use a lighter shade of the lip liner and use lip gloss or a matte lipstick to get a balanced look.

Using brow tint and other brow makeup

Avoid using pencil except to outline the eyebrow. Do not fill in the brow with the eyebrow pencil. To get a natural look, use a brow tint in a lighter color and dab the excess with an earbud.

Avoid contouring and leave it to professionals

After applying every bit of makeup, you could just go wrong contouring your face. Leave this special technique to the professionals. Avoid using blush if you don’t have to. At Least learn the right application to make it look natural.

These are the mistakes best avoided to give you that natural and a glowing look on your face. You can avoid illuminators that comes with most of the makeup now a days. Stick to the natural makeup for your daily wear and use cosmetics that enhance and nourish the condition of your skin.
