Have you ever walked out of your house, looked in the mirror, and been horrified by your makeup? Or discovered that you had applied too much blush and that your eye makeup had melted away during the day? If you’re having trouble with your makeup, even if you believe you’re doing everything correctly, the following maybe some of the errors you’re actually making:
- APPLYING MAKE-UP IN THE INACCURATE LIGHT
Few of us are aware, but the lighting in which we apply our makeup is critical. Many of us are applying our makeup in substandard indoor lighting, which is why we are taken aback when we step outside and see our makeup. Natural light is the most accurate source of illumination because it is the closest to how your face will appear. Yellow and white lights have a tendency to alter the color of our skin.
- IMPROPER USE OF TOOLS
You are not required to purchase everything that beauty brands attempt to sell you, but there is a reason for specific tools for eye makeup, lips, and cheeks. If you’re constantly dissatisfied with the makeup you’re applying with the tools you’re currently using, it may be time to make a change.
- YOU FAIL TO SELECT THE APPROPRIATE COLORS AND FORMULATIONS
We’d all like to be able to wear products in every shade and texture, but at the end of the day, a lot of our makeup choices come down to personal preference. We must consider our skin type and color when selecting products to ensure that they complement our appearance.
- YOU DO NOT REPLACE YOUR MAKE-UP ON A REGULAR BASIS
It is critical to adjust your makeup according to the weather. Not all formulations can withstand the heat and continue to function properly during the cooler months. Therefore, if you don’t want your makeup to melt off in the middle of the day, be sure to change it as the weather changes. Similarly, bear in mind the expiration dates of the products. Using expired products can result in a breakout and will also prevent the product from applying properly.
