5 Makeup Mistakes You Need to Stop Making

makeup beauty tips essexMakeup tips to improve your application technique.

Not Removing Makeup Before Bed

This is a big no-no. Makeup settles in your pores, causing them to block and expand. If you are too tired to complete your evening cleaning routine, keep a bag of cleansing wipes next to your bed. That way you can remove any makeup before you go to to sleep.

Using Too Much Bronzer

Bronzer should be carefully blended to give you that sun-kissed look, so don’t over apply it to your face. Instead, blend a subtle bronzer into the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, chin and forehead.

Applying Too Much Foundation

We all want a perfectly even skin tone, but applying too much foundation not only stops your pores from breathing, but it can make you look as if you are wearing a mask. Instead apply the foundation to your t-zone area and slowly blend it into the rest of your face. Remember that less is always more.

Wearing The Wrong Shade Of Foundation

We have all done this at one point or another, but this is something that is easily fixed. When buying foundation, don’t test the shade on your hand. If you know that you will be wearing bronzer, apply a foundation that is a little darker than your natural skin tone. Remember that your skin colour changes seasonally, so having a foundation for both the winter and summer months will get the best results. To find the perfect foundation tone for your bronzer, try asking an assistant at the counter, they always know best.

Only Applying To Your Face

Your face doesn’t stop at your chin but, as far as makeup is concerned, continues down to your neck. It is important to remember this rule when applying foundation otherwise you run the risk of forming a makeup line that frames your chin. Instead, when applying foundation to your face, continue to blend past your chin line, down your neck and behind the earlobes. If you find that your neck is slightly lighter than your face, use a little bronzer to match the skin tone.
