Mistakes in makeup

Checked for yourself: mistakes in makeup, which add to our age and make the image cheap

It used to be like this: I let my eyebrows down, I made up my eyelashes, I powdered it up … You look in the mirror – and you understand: “was it better”?

Wrong tone

This is the most common mistake in the makeup of girls. The tone is picked up on the skin on the arm, cheek or even at random, but only not as it should be. Someone in the tone looks darker, someone is pinker than necessary. An example of our heroine: she wanted to mask her pallor, choosing a darker shade (and even if there is no such goal, very often for light skin there is simply no suitable color in the ruler).

What to do?

To choose a tone for the color of the neck and your skin type. After the supposed correct variant, apply the chosen tonal base to the entire face (use the samplers in the store just so), go out into the daylight and see that there are no differences. Then go through this tone for several hours, see how he behaves and whether everything suits. And only then, with a favorable outcome, buy.
As a result of applying the tone, the face and neck should be of the same shade:



Almost everyone has already adopted fashion for wide natural eyebrows, but far from everyone knows how to emphasize their shape. The most common mistake in this case – too bright drawing, a clear line from the top and a bad feathering, as in the photo on the left.

What to do?

Remember: the eyebrows should be drawn so that it was completely unnoticeable. You can draw the middle lines with light strokes without touching the boundaries. So they will be thicker, but will remain natural, as in the photo on the right.

Arrows – this is generally a painful topic! The main mistake is the space between the arrow and the eyelashes in the form of a white strip – an unpainted pencil / eyeliner space at the eyelashes. The same problem: the presence of an arrow and the absence of mascara on eyelashes. Or the wrong shape of the arrow. Sometimes all the errors happen right away, as in the photo on the left.

What to do?

carefully draw a ciliary contour so that the arrow represents a single line along with the eyelashes and framed the eye
the end of the arrow should be a continuation of the line of growth of the lower lashes
its thickness should correspond to the length and thickness of the eyelashes – the thicker the arrow, the longer and thicker the eyelashes. If you draw a thick arrow and do not glue the bundles of eyelashes, it will seem as if there are none at all
it should be black (or brown) and no spaces

Arrows NYC


Shadows require feathering. And the darker the color, the more difficult it is to shade. However, in the photo on the left you can see that the medium intensity tones do not always fit well.

What to do?

In two cases, identical shadows (2 colors) were used with the difference only in feathering. In the second case, it is present. If you can not shade the shadows in a perfect haze and the boundaries of the color are clearly visible, then it’s better to give up shadows altogether. If the feathering is not ideal, the eye seems dirty, not expressive.


The most important thing in lipstick is the combination of its color and skin tone. They should be in harmony. The photo on the left shows clearly that the lipstick is too red for our heroine. The photo on the right takes a colder shade.

What to do?

To choose a lipstick under the skin tone and take into account: soft shine is more relevant than a pearl gloss.

Her lashes may never be the same again

A woman has been left with no eyelashes after a botched extension job left her with inflamed eyelids and an infection.

A popular beauty procedure which sees individual synthetic lashes attached to the wearer’s own, eyelash extensions have become big business and you’d be hard pressed to find a salon that doesn’t offer them.

But, as one woman found out the hard way, not all lash artists are created equal.

After having botched eyelash extensions, an anonymous woman entered Emmaculate Beauty salon in Perth, Australia in a desperate plea for help.

But her real lashes were so damaged that there was nothing that could be done to save them.

Taking to Facebook, Emma Dhanjal – a beauty professional and owner of Emmaculate Beauty salon – issued a lengthy warning to her customers.

“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do your research. This poor girl has been left with extremely damaged natural lashes,” Ms Dhanjal posted.

“She wanted lashes for her birthday this weekend and I could not lash her because she has been left with no lashes.

“Her natural lashes are sooooo damaged from the place she has been having her lashes done, they were falling out when I touched them with the tweezers.”

Alongside her warning, Dhanjal shared a series of images of the woman’s lashes adding that her client had ‘inflamed eyelids’ and needed to see a doctor for infection.

“Her lashes may never be the same again,” she wrote.

Nonetheless, the lash artist insisted that if beauty fans do their research before hand that this kind of thing should never happen.

“Please do not be scared of having lash extensions applied, if you do your research and go to the right place your lash extensions can be applied for years and years without having a break.”

Instead, she recommends knowing the background of your eyelash artist, looking at photos and reviews online, and never opting for the cheapest option.

Receiving 2,000 likes in just one week, Dhanjal’s post clearly struck a chord and some even shared their own horror beauty stories.

“I had mine done about 4-5 weeks ago. I’m not sure if it’s normal but they stab and itch when I shut my eyes… and some of my lashes have snapped off to nothing like in this photo,” one woman admitted.

10 common mistakes in makeup

Mistakes in makeup

Makeover gives the opportunity to experiment, to realize the creative potential and feel more confident. Today there are almost no makeup taboo — you can do anything you want. But there are things that can ruin even the most interesting idea and turn makeup into a nightmare. Makeup artist Valentina Shabanova told about the most important mistakes and how to avoid them.


Incorrectly selected shade of tonal means

As a result, the skin looks unnatural, the face turns into the mask, which another and very different in color from the neck and body.

SOLUTION: never pick up tonal means, trying it on your wrist. Apply a few samples on a line of the Chin and look in the mirror. Use the tool that is not visible in the mirror. Some tools have a property on the air, so darken not hurry with the choice. Wait a couple minutes and again appreciate the result in the mirror. The probability of error will strive for zero, if you can look at themselves in daylight. If you can’t perfectly precise tone of their skin, it’s best to opt for a brighter, not dark. But we are talking here about a semitone difference hardly visible.

BUG # 2

Incorrectly selected tonal texture tools

Heavy matte texture is not the best choice for everyday life. Firstly, they require constant adjustments during the day, and secondly, do not look natural. The more liquid and easy to be texture, the easier it is to succeed and to shade the tool.

SOLUTION: the basics of tonal Textures very much. Come in liquid, cream, solid sticks in the form of a souffle, double action basics (powder, which can be both dry and wet way) with frosted, moist, radiant effects. Make the right choice. It is important to build on the skin condition. If it is close to the ideal and you need just a smooth tone, choose the easiest of all possible variants. More suitable for oily skin means with high content of powder for problem is more dense, dry-with moisturising and light texture.

BUG # 3

Disregard for preparation of skin for makeup

Even the most correct for color, texture and composition of the tone will not be good to put on an unprepared skin. Poorly rinsed yesterday’s make-up, peeling, shiny skin, enlarged pores become even more noticeable, if you apply a tonal tool immediately.

SOLUTION: before you start to clean the skin well, makeup. Then apply uhodovoe tool that is appropriate for your skin type. In some cases — for example, when the pores too wide is better use a special primer that will make the skin smooth and prepare it to tone.

BUG # 4

Lack of careful shading

Tone that rests on the skin pieces and daubs neakkuratnymi, nobody will decorate. Better does refuse, if carefully shading in no time.

SOLUTION: Apply the tone only at the center of the face and the tushujte brush or moist with a sponge dampened to the hairline and Chin, so that there was no color spots and clearly defined boundaries. You can opt out of the full tonal cover and use only concealer is to freshen the skin around the eyes, remove redness from the wings of the nose and lip line highlighter-highlight on the protruding part of the face and cream blush gentle tone. But all this also need shade, just so happens to achieve truly natural effect.

BUG # 5

Unnatural eyebrows

On the form of the eyebrows can be easily guessed or bring in make-up a certain era. Now we prefer natural forms and shades of gray. Unnatural, well-defined eyebrows look as if their cut out of paper and glued to the face. Even if your own eyebrows not too broad and thick, and I want them to be such, draw them again is not the best idea.

SOLUTION: in the makeup eyebrows work from its natural form. Try to just fill the gaps and align the form. But here all about millimeters, and the main thing is not to overdo it. It is always better to draw hair, than fill a significant piece of skin, and for this to happen to make-up eyebrows (pencil, shadow, mascara, lipstick) must be well matched to your natural shade. The result is better fix the transparent gel that accentuate each hair.

BUG # 6

Accurate contour of the lips, traced unevenly and differs in color from lipstick

Yes, pencils make the shape of the lips more pronounced, but need to be used with caution and not try to draw yourself a lip wider than they really are. It looks ridiculous.

SOLUTION: Now don’t need to buy two products for the lips. Many brands have combined lip pencil and lipstick in one tool. Such easy to draw and shade contour and use as the main colors. If you draw a path exactly, it is better to abandon this idea and use the technique of “zacelovannyh lips.

BUG # 7

Robin with glitter and Pearl

Effect of wet makeup is addictive, but the technique, repeating for via instagram-bloggers, not worth still forget that each person individually. And that goes one, totally will decorate another.

SOLUTION: if you shine irresistibly wants something for everyday life it is more correct to choose something more delicate. Choose shimmeram of natural shades and fine, with a light glow. Don’t forget that glitter even more highlights the protruding parts of the face and attracts attention. So don’t highlight hajlajterom areas of skin that have shortcomings, otherwise risk to bring them even more attention.

BUG # 8

Battle contouring

Another popular technique now, with which it is easy to miss. The main error is used to konturinga the wrong means. For example, powder red shades, ronzery or blush. As a result, the face looks maximally unnaturally.

SOLUTION: Make easy contouring cream or pudrovymi means, which are only slightly different in color from the base color of the skin.

BUG # 9

Inappropriate makeup

Now almost no frames and borders, the main thing is to feel yourself in harmony. But good taste when it has not been canceled.
And, probably, there is no sense to go to an interview or business meeting with bright arrow and shadows acid shades.

DECISION: choosing a makeup for an event, use common sense and remember about lighting. At daylight it is better to go more natural makeup, and in the evening you can already experiment.

BUG # 10

Excessive use of color Correctors

Green actually camouflages redness and salmon hides the blue eyes. But if you get carried away, you can get on your face an abundance of colorful spots, which look odd.

Solution: Choose SS-creams that already contains all necessary pigments for correction of redness and blemishes.

Microblading: last treatment against the eyebrows unpopulated

How much is microblading

Would you like to redraw your eyebrows, but the hair transplant seems excessive and micropigmentation doesn’t convince you. Now there is another alternative: ‘microblading

We know the importance of the eyebrows to frame the eyes. We know that choosing your profiling, your design is going to be determining at the time of grant, or other expression to our face. That’s why, all those women who have had the bad leg to see how their eyebrows were depopulating and losing their old thick sigh when they see those of Cara Delevingne or Gigi Hadid.
Behind this problem there are causes are very diverse: from the passing of the years until the excess clamp, passing by skin lesions, diseases such as hypothyroidism or treatments such as chemotherapy. Up to now, the cosmetic solutions were basically three: the strengthening of eyebrows that have shown its effectiveness after the ‘chemo’-, micropigmentation and hair transplant. This is, without a doubt, an invasive technique reserved for ‘brave’; as to the micropigmentation, it is still a tattoo: long-lasting on the skin and their results, in many cases, little, natural, stack-to-back, many women who do not take risk with a result slightly flattering in a place as visible as your face. Now comes another technique, the ‘microblading’, whose effects last less time. It would be, perhaps, a first step before resorting to micropigmentation and a solution for when the eyebrows are moderately depopulated, not bald.

Microblading‘ has its origin in the ‘tébori’, a technique of tattoo handbook native to Asia (Japan and China), where the pigment or ink is implanted in the epidermis , avoiding its deterioration. Throughout the TWENTIETH century has enjoyed great popularity in several countries of Latin America, such as Colombia, Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. Now, as we say, you’ve just landed in Spain.

“The treatments of micropigmentation traditional ‘tattooed’ eyebrows, but the pigment deteriorates in a short time, and end up appearing greenish tones of blue, or even pink and orange. However, with the ‘microblading’ the colour remains stable”, says Claudia di Paolo, Beauty Hunter and owner of the space Claudia di Paolo Shop, which includes a bar of eyebrows and eyelashes. Yes, if you have hypothyroidism you should refer to your case before giving you the treatment, because it is possible that the color is not set well and last for less time.
First performed a study of the physiognomy facial and is made in the proper design. Then, the treatment is performed freehand and with an instrument similar to a pen or pen manual’ –in the place of dermógrafo that is used in micropigmentation–, which is deposited on the pigment stroke to stroke, and following the technique of the hair to hair.This pigment –specific ‘microblading‘, – type inorganic, mineral based and hypoallergenic– it’s at the level of the epidermis, or superficial, unlike what happens in the ‘micro’, which is inserted between the layers of the epidermis and the dermis.The duration of treatment for eyebrows complete is about 45 minutes andthe healing process is faster, being a surface treatment.

The results: “The goal is to raise a few eyebrows natural and defined, with more thickness,” says the expert. Well done, can make visually eyes bigger and more expressive, so as to balance the factions by providing symmetry to the face. And something more: it is less painful than a micropigmentation. Yes, since this is a new technique, our advice is that you inform yourself well before on the training and formation of the person that you are going to do.
Duration: between one year and a year and a half, according to age, skin type and the proper follow-up care post-treatment.

Sessions: after more or less one month of the session, it is recommended to perform a second review session or retouching, to refine the result.
Price: between 180 and 350$
