How To Fix The Top 3 Beauty Blunders
There are three applying makeup tips which can help you fix most most makeup mistakes. Whether you’re just learning to apply makeup or you’re a makeup artist on the run, stuff happens! The thing about makeup is that you can take it off or layer over it. Find out how to get that finished look when you might have overdone something – and correct it the easy way.
Correcting Eyeliner Mistakes
Botched eyeliner is one of those makeup mistakes that can get a little tricky. You want to correct the line and not mess up the rest of your makeup. This is one that you usually have to do quick and in a hurry when you’re applying eyeliner and heading out to work or school. This is one of my favorite applying makeup tips to correct the mistake perfectly.
Makeup Technique For Eyeliner: Take the tip and dip it in eye makeup remover. Dab the tip on some some tissue to remove most of the product. Now, swipe it across the area you want remove. Although I usually recommend baby oil for removing eye makeup – this is an exception. You don’t want to add oil, so a makeup remover works better.
Buffing Out Blush
Waking up pale is perfect if you’re into vampire makeup trends, but going overboard with blush can make you look garish. If you used a cream blush, blush stain or powdered blush here are the applying makeup tips to correct it in just seconds:
Makeup Technique For Powder: Powder corrects powder. You can often just take a little swipe of mineral powder and run it lightly over your cheeks to dilute the color.
Makeup Technique For Creme: Creme blush mistake? No problem. Just take a little foundation and tap a white makeup sponge into it. The little white wedges work well for this. Take the sponge and lightly whisk over the cheek area. You are essentially diluting your creme blush color with an additional layer over the top.
Makeup Technique For Cheek Stain: What about cheek stain gone wrong? While this one poses more of a challenge, it’s not impossible to correct. First, take a little moisturizer on a white makeup wedge and lightly blend out the area if possible. Afterward apply a light coat of foundation over it.
Beautifully Blended Foundation
Making a foundation makeup mistake is the quickest way to completely kill your makeup look and unfortunately it’s also the most common beauty blunders. The two main things that go wrong with this look are actually very simple to fix and these two must have applying makeup tips will help you correct the problem and prevent future mishaps.
The number one mistake is failure to blend out the foundation. Whether it’s airbrush makeup or mineral makeup, cream or liquid it’s got to be blended out at the edges. You’ve got to check your jawline and hairline. Here’s how to fix it:
Makeup Technique For Foundation Blending: To correct it blend and buff with a makeup sponge. Try a quick swipe with a dry white makeup wedge in short stokes. Need more blending? No problem, just dip the sponge in a little moisturizer and go over your makeup. That should do the trick.
You selected the wrong shade. Making this mistake is usually because you did not view the shade in natural light. First of all, forgive yourself. We’ve all had those moments where we’ve felt pressured by the salesperson and just bought it rather than checking it in natural light. The applying makeup tips in the face makeup section will show you the easiest way to get the right shade.
Makeup Technique For Too Light: If you went too light then grab your powder or creme bronzer makeup. Use a light coat on your forehead, cheek bones and bridge of your nose and a little on your chin. It’s enough to give you a slight amount of coverage so you don’t look so pale.
Makeup Technique For Too Dark: Blend the edges out with the technique used above and then apply a lighter foundation to the tops of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, forehead and chin. You are basically doing the reverse of the bronzing technique. A creme to powder foundation works best for this. Remember to buy two foundations at the same time – a lighter one to go with the one you usually wear. Or Face Atelier offers a lightening foundation product you can blend with yours.
One of the best applying makeup tips is this last one: Use a magnifying makeup mirror to check your final makeup look. If you get in the habit of checking your makeup application and using the makeup artist tips above you’ll find that your foundation, blush and eyeliner will go on smoothly and you’ll spend less time correcting your makeup and more time enjoying it.
