BIGGEST MAKE-UP MISTAKES!






#6.
PERMANENT MAKE-UP!



  • Every woman dreams of waking up and looking perfect. Sometimes putting on make-up takes a little work. However, permanent make-up is NOT the solution.
  • Our facial appearance can appear to change daily due to:
    • Wearing different clothes
    • Sun exposure
    • Lack of sun exposure
    • Aging
  • It is never a wise decision to make a permanent decision on something that changes daily.
  • Make-up should be explored, permanent make-up will take away this opportunity.
  • This is a "type" of tattoo. What ended up on your eyelids, can very well turn out to be on your nose....in a year or maybe by tomorrow.
If you can't wash it off, wax it off, or pull it off....

NEVER PUT IT ON YOUR FACE!

WEARING THE WRONG SHADE OF FOUNDATION!
Why you may be wearing the wrong foundation!






HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT FOUNDATION SHADE!


  • Always find a shade that matches your skin tone.
  • It can look extremely silly if you choose to wear foundation that does not blend.
  • Our skin changes with the seasons. You will probably have to switch the shade of your foundation, depending on the time of year.
  • "Imperfection is perfection"
    • If you choose to use lighter colors on your face, start with a concealer.
      • ONLY ADD LIGHTER FOUNDATION/COLOR TOWARDS THE CENTER OF YOUR FACE: NOSE, UNDERNEATH THE EYES, AND SOMETIMES THE TOP OF THE APPLES OF YOUR CHECK.
      • Most people have natural under eye circles. Using lighter colors that are centered around the middle of your face, will give you a younger appearance.
How to achieve younger healthy looking skin!
    • During the summer months, this is especially a good way to wear your make-up. Sweating is more prominent during the summer months, which makes it harder to maintain a fresh, shine free look. 
    • Sometimes you may surprise yourself. Unless you have severely troubled skin areas, then this technique can actually minimize the use of foundation.

        Why is imperfection  considered perfection?
    • No one has a toned complexion! If you work with the natural lighting of your face...it will look more natural and clear.
      • Our face is naturally darker where the sun hits it the most.
        •  i.e. forehead, side of face.

GOING HEAVY ON BOTH THE LIPS AND EYES!

  • If you are going to wear dark lipstick...DO NOT WEAR HEAVY EYE MAKE-UP!
  • If you choose to wear heavy eye make-up....GO LIGHT ON THE LIPS!
  • Always balance your make-up!
  • It can look overdone if there is too much emphasis on both the eyes AND the lips.
  • There is no rule that says you have to remain with the same make-up routine. You can switch heavy versus light anytime you want!


Make-up should always
look natural but enhance your beauty!
