The main rule of makeup - no rules! Nevertheless, there are 15 very gross mistakes that every fifth girl makes. But the most interesting thing is that they are allowed even by professional makeup artists. Therefore, we suggest you consider Top 15 most common mistakes in makeup and test yourself.
1 mistake: Incorrect drawing of cheekbones
This mistake is made by 80% of those who consider themselves to be a professional makeup artist. Surprisingly, ignorance of anatomy and blind copying lead to massive confusion, so to speak.
Drawing the cheekbones, all draw a triangle, expanding to the temples, which is absolutely contrary to biology. You need to darken the only important point on the cheek. How to find her? Putting your finger to your cheekbone. At the junction of the bone and lower jaw is the same point.
There are a huge number of photo makeup lessons with a detailed description of contouring, and the worst thing is that they are all completely wrong.
2 mistake: Red bronze instead of gray-brown contouring
About 10 years ago we did not know anything about contouring and drew red cheeks with our bronzer.
But today it is worth knowing that the red pigment looks extremely unnatural on the skin of the face, so makeup artists advise to buy a palette for contouring a gray-brown shade. In the shops of cosmetics there are a huge amount of products for any makeup.
3 mistake: Too light concealer under the eyes in the shape of a circle
We decided to immediately cover 2 makeup errors that concern the concealer. It turns out that almost no one knows how to use it. The main place of application of this product is the eye corner, since there is a large number of wreaths and capillaries there, because of which a bruise effect is created.
Apply a small amount of concealer to the corner of the eye and shade towards the center (we get the same triangle, but softer). Here is the only correct way. Neither the semicircle nor the huge triangle right up to the nose is considered correct and does not give freshness to the face.
Concerning colorsMany women think that if they have dark circles under their eyes, then the color of the concealer should be chosen more lightly. But in the end we get gray circles, which makes the look even more tired and heavy.
In the presence of dark circles, use a peach corrector, then apply a tonal and only after slightly mark the place with a concealer. The product color should be a maximum of 1 tone lighter, but no more (you can also choose a shade to match the tone).
4 mistake: Blush unnatural color on the zygomatic bone
Let's start with the fact that many do forget about such an important element in make-up as blush. Having made a beautiful eye makeup, brightly colored lips, you should create a connecting element between the lips and eyes. This connecting element is a blush, which should also be drawn correctly.
Smile, you will find the right place for rouge - apples cheeks.
Further, the most important thing in the make-up of the face is the color of rouge. Remember that natural blush is not orange and brown. The shade may be washed cold or warm (depending on your skin tone), but always pale pink or coral. How to determine your color? Pinch your cheek.
Well, and a bonus tip, walk around with the remnants of the product at the tip of the nose and around the perimeter of the face to create a harmony of color.
5 mistake: Too dark or, on the contrary, imperceptible eyebrows
Bright evening eye makeup requires more intense eyebrows, while a light day - delicate natural. In order not to overdo it, first of all we paint our eyes, leave the edge at last.
And remember what a beautiful natural eyebrow looks like: the inner corner is less intense, approaching the peak of a break is more saturated.
6 mistake: Lack of color harmony
Sometimes technically beautiful makeup looks very awkward. The fact is that the master did not adhere to the "harmony of color", which says that it is worth working in one shade (cold or warm). Cold shades contain blue, warm - yellow. Thus, using completely different colors, you can create a beautiful harmonious image.
7 mistake: Highlighter on selected sites
We all loan that the highlighter should be applied under the eyebrow, on the cheekbones, the corners of the eyes, the back of the nose and a tick above the upper lip. As a result, we get shiny pieces that look awkward. It is very important to properly shade the radiant: the shine on the cheekbone is smoothly shaded and create a slight shine over the eyebrow, apply the highlighter to the base of the nose and shade to the tip, gently tick the upper lip, stretching it to the corners of the mouth.
And most importantly, do not overdo it with the highlighter, because the meaning of the radiant in creating a natural shine on the face, and not the effect of oily skin.
Also try to choose the most natural shade.
8 mistake: No contouring after leveling
Make-up for every day involves the use of BB-cream or a light foundation, which does not overlap, but creates the effect of beautiful skin. If we are talking about evening make-up, when a thick tonalnik is used, you should not forget about easy contouring. Dense foundation hides all the flaws of the skin, but with it all the natural shadows. As a result, we get a puppet face, like a blank sheet of paper of huge size.
It is necessary to walk lightly after dusting with a soft brush with a dry corrector in the areas of darkening.
9 mistake: Painting only the tips of the eyelashes
We all used to dye eyelashes, focusing on the tips (especially when we quickly do light makeup in the morning). What do we get? Under the weight of the mascara, the hairs descend and we get not the big eyes, but the opposite effect. Remember, painting eyelashes, we focus on the roots.
10 mistake: White line on mucous eye
Wanting to enlarge the eyes, many girls paint over the lower mucous eyes and they are almost right. Lightening the mucous membrane, the eye actually becomes visually larger, only the pale pink or beige pencil should be used, not white. White color is unnatural for the face (it is not on our face).
11 mistake: Clear border tonal - "mask" on the face
Almost all tonal apply strictly on the face, with the result that we get a clear boundary and "mask" on the face. Professional makeup artists put a little product on the ears and neck, and then very well shade a soft synthetic brush (duofiber). Pay particular attention to the neck, as it often differs not in color, but in texture. Quite a bit of tone will fix this problem.
From this error, we smoothly proceed to another problem.
12 mistake: Incorrectly picked up tone
If you make a mistake with the tone color, we get the same mask. So, the complexion and neck will be very different. How not to be mistaken with a touch?
This error occurs for two reasons.
First reason: in cosmetics stores include yellow lamps that neutralize the "redhead" (they have such a sin). Thanks to this artificial! Illumination tonal looks perfect in the store. But when we get home, we are often disappointed. In order not to be mistaken with a shade, put a little product under the eye, shade on the cheek and exit the store, considering how it looks in daylight.
The second reason: everyone tests the shade on the arm. But it is worth remembering that the shade of the hands and face is very different. Test tonal strictly on the face (on the hand just check the texture). We apply tonal on the face, we live with him all day, we check how he copes with our rhythm of life. If we are comfortable, we buy this product, if not - we are testing the next one.
I would also like to note that use of dry beauty blenderis also considered a mistake. But as visually it is impossible to see, just remind you how to use it correctly.
The beauty blender perfectly applies and "drives the tonal into the skin", but on condition that it is wet. Dry beauty blender will absorb too much product (which is very uneconomical) and will create a very thick layer. If you wet it and press it well, it will help create an ultra thin coating and absorb a minimum of the product.
13 mistake: One color of shadows for all mobile eyelids
Amateurs put one color of the shadows on all moving eyelids and get just "colored" eyelids.
How do professionals do? We take 2 shades of matte brown shadows (dark and light brown) and create depth: with a dark shade, we denote the upper fold of the mobile eyelid, with the light moving eyelid. Slightly we pass dark color on the lower eyelid, not reaching the inner corner. Everything is well shaded.
An example of a simple day makeup.
This is the basis of absolutely any make-up (any eye make-up begins with this), since this technique allows you to make your eyes big and beautiful.
14 mistake: Exit the contour of the lips, in order to increase them
Even many stars sin with this, but you should not forget that others can clearly see the contour of your lips.
Therefore, if you want to make the lips more luxurious and appetizing, draw a tick over the upper lip with a highlighter, darken it under the lip and lighten the center of the lips, and / or create an ombre (play with the color as in the photo below).
15 mistake: The abundance of tonal and concealer (as in the video lessons)
We all watched videos where the girls literally poured on themselves a tonal and put a huge amount of concealer, driving it for a long time after their beauty blender. It is worth noting that the camera "eats" 50% of the makeup, so it works only for photo and video filming. In life, it all looks like a "plaster".
Save products, besides, no one should know about our little secrets.
Summing upI would like to say that the main thing in makeup is not to overdo it. Try to highlight your strengths and hide flaws. Do not try to be like "intrent divs", which are all very similar to each other, have lost their individuality, and nothing is visible on the face except for makeup.
