Nowadays, makeup has become the living habit of many modern women, and makeup can cover up the imperfections of the face. However, not every woman is proficient in makeup, and some unintentional makeup habits are often makeup mistakes. These bad makeup habits will not only affect the makeup effect, but even the health of the skin. Here are some common makeup mistakes that you should definitely know.
1.Using Other People’s Cosmetics
Cosmetics can easily lead to cross-infection of skin diseases or become a vector of infection for other diseases. Therefore, we should not use other people’s cosmetics or lend our own cosmetics to others.
2.Not Cleaning Makeup Tools Regularly
Many people do not get into the habit of cleaning their makeup tools regularly, thinking that there is no need to clean them regularly, not knowing that this is a common makeup mistake. When you find out one day that you can’t get the same effect with the same brush on the same plate of blush, have you ever thought that it’s because the brush is too dirty? The correct way to use makeup tools should be to clean them once a day, but if you think it is too time consuming, you must clean them at least once a week. Because makeup tools are easy to hide dirt, if they are not cleaned in time, they are not good for the face and cosmetics.
3.Holding Makeup for Too Long
I believe many women know this, but often some women still make these makeup mistakes that age you. Maybe it’s because they think it’s too late to take off their makeup to go to bed, or maybe they want to stay glowing and shiny all the time. However, if cosmetics stay on the face for a long time, it is easy to block the pores and affect the normal breathing of the skin. In the long run, the skin will easily become aging and even get skin diseases. So, keep in mind that you must remove your makeup and clean your face thoroughly before going to bed.
4.Use Perfume on the Face
Perfume is a chemical substance, after the sun’s rays, it is easy to cause chemical changes that can lead to facial skin redness and stinging, and even get facial dermatitis.
5.Foundation Applied Too White
Some people wear makeup like wearing a mask, revealing a strong makeup feeling, these are makeup mistakes to avoid. Makeup pays attention to natural coordination, and light makeup has become more popular in recent years. The reason for this mistake of applying too much white foundation is perhaps due to the following two reasons.
- Some girls keep layering thick layers of foundation in order to cover up the flaw on their face.
- Use a combination of liquid foundation and pressed powder. In fact, liquid foundation and powder foundation are makeup products that need to be used separately. If you apply liquid foundation, you can use loose powder as a setting, while pressed powder can wait until makeup comes off and needs to be touched up.
6.The Wrong Way to Touch Up Your Makeup
Many people find that their makeup is off and their faces are shiny, so they just pick up the pressed powder and apply makeup on their faces. However, the oil secreted on the face will make the pressed powder agglomerate, causing the facial makeup to get stuck and make the makeup dirty. Therefore, be sure to use an oil-absorbing tissue to absorb excess oil on your face before applying makeup. Some people may think that these beginner makeup mistakes, but in fact, many women with years of makeup experience make such mistakes in their daily lives.
7.Too Much Makeup
Some girls can’t wait to try all kinds of colors on their face, painting their eyeshadow, blush and lipstick very thickly, which are also some very common makeup mistakes. For a delicate makeup look, you only need to choose one of the three places above as the focal point. Another point that is easy to overlook is that in the summer heat, sweat will wash the eye shadow into the eyes, and too heavy eye shadow into the eyes can easily damage the visual organs.
8.Misuse of Concealer
It is very common to have acne, dark circles and spots on your face. Since makeup is meant to cover up blemishes on the face, the use of concealer is essential. However, many girls are using concealer incorrectly. If the blemishes are not less visible, choosing a natural concealer color is sufficient. For darker blemishes like dark circles, choose a concealer color that is slightly darker than your skin color. Also, concealer should not only be used on the spot that needs to be concealed, but also on the surrounding area to make it more natural. Otherwise, over concealing will make the concealed area look abrupt, and vice versa, it will not cover the blemish completely. These are the beginner makeup mistakes that many newbies tend to make.
9.Applying Mascara Vertically
We all know that mascara should be held horizontally in the hand and gently applied. But some girls will hold mascara vertically to apply eyelashes for convenience. This is a bad makeup habit and a very dangerous behavior that can hurt your eyes if you are not careful.
Walking in the street, we can see many girls draw their eyebrows into two lines, and some even pluck them in order to modify the shape of the eyebrows. These are very bad behaviors and makeup mistakes to avoid. Excessive eyebrow plucking can easily damage the skin of the eyebrows and even cause folliculitis. There are also some girls who like to fill in their eyebrows with color in block form, but this will make the brows look obtrusive. These two types of eyebrows are what we often call catastrophic eyebrows and do not give a good effect to the makeup.
11.Dark and Thick Eyeliner
Some girls like to draw black and thick eyeliner to make their eyes look bigger, and draw eyeliner on the inner eyelid. Too exaggerated eyeliner will make the whole makeup look too flashy. The correct way to draw is to draw a thin eyeliner on the outside of the eyelid.
12.Unnatural Lip Makeup
Whether the lip makeup is well painted or not will affect the overall makeup. Some people are not in the habit of using lip liner, resulting in their lips looking quite greasy after applying lip gloss. Some women, on the other hand, draw their lip liner so heavily that it looks like there is a clear line of demarcation. What’s more, some women like to wear lipsticks with unique colors. All of the above are common makeup mistakes.
13.Using a Foundation That Is Not Suitable for Your Skin Type
Everyone’s skin type is different and it is important to choose the right cosmetics for different skin types. For example, people with dry skin should not use cream foundation, otherwise, it will easily produce fine wrinkles, and they should use a foundation with moisture.
14.Putting on Makeup in a Dark Place
Many women do not pay attention to the light when applying makeup. These are makeup mistakes to be avoided. When applying makeup, the light should shine directly on the face, and you should not choose to apply makeup in a dark place. Otherwise, there will be an obvious gap between the makeup in the light and dark environment.
