How To Fix Common Makeup Mistakes

When you're applying makeup, it can be easy to make a mistake, especially if you're new to the game. But don't worry: We've put together this quick guide to avoiding some of the most common makeup mishaps.


Lipstick On Your Teeth

If you're guilty of making this mistake, don't worry! It can be pretty easy to fix. The first thing you should do is take a tissue and wipe off any excess lipstick from your lips so that it doesn't get everywhere else on your face. Then, use a lip brush (or even just an old toothbrush) to get rid of any stray bits that are left behind. If there are still some smudges left over after using a brush, try using an oil-blotting sheet before moving on with the rest of your makeup routine; some people find this works better than traditional makeup remover wipes because they tend not to leave behind any residue at all!

If none of this helps and believe me when I say that sometimes trying new things does help! You may have just picked a shade or formula that simply doesn't work well with your skin tone or texture type (I've found myself stuck between these two options many times). In those cases where neither method works well enough by itself but together they might help solve some problems, well then maybe consider switching up what kind of lipstick/gloss/balm combination works best for YOU?


Eyeliner On Your Cheekbone

This is a common mistake that many people make. Eyeliner on your cheekbone is unnecessary and can look bad, so don't do it! If you do end up putting eyeliner on the wrong area of your face, use a makeup wipe or wet cotton swab to remove any excess product from the area.


Eyeliner On Your Eyelid

Eyeliner on your eyelid can be a bit tricky. You'll want to use either pencil or liquid liner, but be careful not to get it in your eye! Use a light hand when applying; don't press too hard with the pencil and make sure that you're looking at yourself in the mirror as you do so.


Eyebrows That Are Too Thick

Too-thick brows can make you look angry, or like you've got something to hide. Plus, they take away from the shape of your face and who wants that?

The danger of having too thick eyebrows is they can obscure your eyes, making them look smaller than they actually are. That's not a good thing if you're trying to show off those beautiful peepers! In order to fix this problem, grab an eyebrow pencil in the color closest to your natural hair color and start lightly sketching out what an ideal shape would look like on yourself. Then use a spooly brush (or just comb) to brush through any stray hairs that don't belong there; once you've done this step twice over the course of two weeks' time (or longer), most people find themselves with new, more flattering arches that complement their features instead of detracting from them!


Eyebrows That Don't Match Your Hair Color

It is important to match your brows with the rest of your hair. You don't want to look like you're wearing a mask, or worse, like you're trying too hard. The general rule of thumb is that eyebrows should be one or two shades darker than your natural color. This can vary depending on how light or dark your strands are and whether or not they have any highlights in them (which will make them appear lighter). In some lighting situations, however, it might be best for your brows to match exactly with their respective hair colors - for example if you have blonde highlights throughout most of the top half of your head, but black roots growing out from underneath those highlights toward the bottom half.

In other words: there's no right way! Just try experimenting until something looks good on both sides of your face without being too light or too dark--and always keep sunscreen handy so as not get sunburned while doing this experimentation process outside during summertime months!


Crease Use On The Outer Corner Of The Eye

When applying your makeup, it's important to know which colors work best for your skin tone. For example, if you're fair-skinned and have blue eyes, try using a soft peach blush instead of a bright pink one. The same goes for eyeshadow: if you want to bring out blue tones in your irises, choose shades that are similar in color but slightly darker than them (i.e., cobalt blue).

If you're still unsure about, which colors work best with your complexion or eye color - or just want some general guidance on how to apply them - we've got some useful tips below!
