Makeup has been around for a long time, and back in the days, it is considered a luxury for women to appear more beautiful, especially whenever a party is being held. But these days, be it, men or women, it is considered normal to wear makeup for daily basis. Although the idea of wearing makeup is lovely, sometimes people make makeup mistakes that might harm their skin. Worry no further as we’re going to discuss several makeup mistakes and how to avoid them, make sure that you read this article to find out more about it.
Sharing your makeup
There will be a situation where you’re going with your friends, say, going on a vacation or perhaps a business trip, and there’s an occasion where your friend forgot to bring their makeup. You might be thinking that you can always lend your mascara or your eyeliner, no harm done right? Well sharing your makeup is a big no-no, even when they are using a different applicator, and the reason is that germs are easily distributed when you share your makeup.
Tip: make sure to remind your friend not to forget any makeup during your vacation.
Sleeping with your makeup on
This mistake is something that people often do, especially after a long day of working or after going out to a party. Feeling tired you remove your clothes and swap to your pajamas, and then you leap to your bed and have a good night sleep. What’s going to happen is that you will get a breakout, and hasten your aging process with all those makeup on your face. Always make sure to clean your face no matter how tired you are, and besides it would be gross to have your clean sheets with all your makeup on it.
Not matching your skin to the makeup you’re using
We like to think that using ‘lighter’ or ‘darker’ foundation will automatically match your skin, when in reality you might appear paler or darker, so make sure that you match your foundation to fit your skin. Another tip is to make sure that you apply your make up with clear bright light, instead of yellow lights, the reason is that you can see the flaws or any mismatch under the white lights.
Tip: sometimes certain foundations might cause a breakout, so make sure to use light-sheer foundation for acne-prone skin.
