Beauty Blunders! By Make Up Like A Pro
Top Beauty Blunders! By Make Up Like A Pro
I’m taking a slight step away from the format that I would normally take for my posts and daily topics due mainly to the unforeseen circumstance that I found myself in on Friday… My A&E outing… ! I’m staying instead, with my earlier theme of “not always keeping on top of your beauty regime” and I’m going to chat to you about some common Beauty Blunders!
A recent survey was undertaken and published in Hello Magazine online which detailed the top beauty blunders that we have all, I’m sure, been guilty of … in the past …!?!
Looking at old photos, there are plenty of those “back in the day” moments when we were welcoming makeup into our lives for the first time and might have been a little heavy handed and careless when attempting to beautify ourselves! I am sure that if we are all honest, then we can think of at least one occasion when we didn’t quite cut the mustard with our look J
Thanks to the survey though, it can be revealed what the most offensive makeup mistakes to make actually are! Can you guess what the first one might be?
Eyebrow overboard! Yes, you might have guessed that going overboard with your eyebrow pencil is a massive NO NO! Those heavily stencilled in brows made popular by certain WAGS topped the charts of makeup faux pas. According to the study, it topped over-plucking and monobrows!
A close second in the makeup mishaps was foundation “tide” marks around your chin. We all know what it’s like to do our makeup in a rush in the morning and the dim light in your bathroom might not provide a true reflection of what you are doing. But you can guarantee that if you missed your blending opportunity and didn’t notice in the comfort of your own home that you’d failed to blend your foundation down your neck, then you can be assured that in the natural light of day, your quick efforts and their effects, won’t be concealed!
Others mishaps included too much makeup, clumpy mascara, lipstick on your teeth, too much blusher and bad roots! Goodness me, when our potential “failings” are laid out in black and white like that, it might send panic waves out there to you all!
DON’T PANIC! To avoid all these Make Up Mishaps why not get into the habit of performing a quick final check list of all the potential “problem areas” before you leave your house so that you will never again be faced with the shame of becoming a makeup statistic!?
Starting at the top of your face move down each of your features and perform Make Up Like A Pro’s recommended personal check list:
(This is not an exhaustive list, but it should help you to get you into your own routine and start getting used to what areas you need to be aware of)
- check your foundation is blended in your hair line (if you’ve taken it that far)
- check your brows are even and compliment the rest of your makeup
- see whether your mascara needs a gentle de-clump
- check whether you have smudged your mascara before it got a chance to dry
- check that your blusher compliments the rest of your makeup
- check your teeth are free from lippie
- check that your foundation blends evenly down your chin line
At the end of the day though ladies, Makeup is such a personal choice and whether you favour thick or thin brows, dark or light blusher, dark or pale lips, roots or freshly coloured hair, that is your choice. This article is intended purely to highlight areas that you might not have perhaps considered before!
