This video should give you an idea on what I'm talking about.
Read on for more talk on bad makeup and their fixes.
- Way too white foundation: It's alright to wanna look fairer but let your skin care take care of that! A foundation that's one shade lighter than your skin tone should be the maximum that you'll be able to get away with.
- Unblended foundation: You don't wanna show the world that you're wearing a mask of foundation so make sure to blend it down your neck.
- Powder Foundation over foundation: You most definitely can do this but be very careful because piling on the coverage may cause your base to look really cakey. Opt for a full-coverage foundation and set with translucent powder so that the coverage looks more natural.
- Over-concealing: Too much can lead to bad caking! Slowly layer on your concealer instead.
- Over-highlighting: Try not to highlight your entire face or you'd look like a walking disco ball. Concentrate on one or two features and use a subtle highlight so that it'll appear more natural.
- Unblended contouring: You're not fooling anyone if your don't blend those harsh lines! Gradually add color and blend well.
- Hot pink blush: If you're wearing such a strong pink, tone it down, please!
- Extreme black line: Putting black eyeliner all over your eyes doesn't equal to smokey eyes. I have loads of tutorials on smokey eyes so do check them out.
- Silver highlight: If you have heavy lids, try not to make your highlight color stand out too much or your eyes may look swollen.
- GLITTER!!!: Use them in the right places and at the right time.
- Harsh brows: Don't just draw on your brows and call it a day. Use feathering strokes with your pencil. You can also try drawing an outline using templates and fill in the brows with eyebrow powder.
- Dramatic lashes: Thick lashes will just make your eyes look heavy. Try natural lashes instead to really open up the eyes. Oh, and let the glue become tacky before you stick on the lashes.
- Drippy glossy lips: Ew.... just ew... You don't need me to explain this
