Face Makeup Tricks & How-To's (285)
Avoid makeup mishaps

Let's face it, even the biggest divas make mistakes with their cosmetics from time-to-time and although it is an unpleasant fact of life, at least there are ways to solve the issues before they get out of hand.

Glamour Magazine recently discussed its biggest makeup pet peeves and some ladies out there might be guilty of making these mistakes.

The source reports that wearing the wrong foundation is the number one makeup faux pas. Going too dark can make ladies look dirty, while going too light may make you look washed out or even sick. To combat this problem, the experts suggest girls take a photo of themselves using a flash while wearing a potential new foundation. This can pick up on the shade and really help you figure out if it works or if you need improvement.

Another makeup woe, Glamour reports, is trying to use the wrong colored concealer to hide pimples - in many cases adding this layer can actually make zits stand out even more. If you must hide blemishes, the source suggests finding a compact that is one shade lighter than your actual skin tone for best results.

Sure, that bright red lipstick may look nice online or at the store, but how it will look when you wear it in different lighting may not be as hot. Most ladies try on their new lip color in their bathrooms or another room in their homes that have soft lighting, which tends to make all makeup look good. However, the lights in high school or at your office are probably not as forgiving. So that shade you thought rocked, might actually make you look totally crazy - something no lady wants. To stop this from happening, try checking your new makeup at work or somewhere else with harsh lighting to truly gauge the hue.
