Makeup is fun to play with, and it obviously can enhance your natural beauty or nobody would be wearing it. But sometimes it’s easy to make mistakes with makeup that you don’t even realize are mistakes. The next time you’re “putting your face on” be sure you check to see that you aren’t making these little bloopers.

Your Foundation Makes You Ashy or Orange

There are two families of skin tones – peach and pink. If you have a warm skin tone that might be described as olive, honey, cream, or tan you are likely a peach based tone. This means you need a foundation and power that are peachy, too. If you have skin that is very white, pink or beige, you need a foundation that is based on pink tones.

The pink tones are sometimes described as yellow or blue tones where the peaches are orange and red tones. If you use the wrong kind of foundation, your skin will show through looking a bit odd. Find the right foundation with the help of someone knowledgeable and always be sure to blend it very well.

Your Concealer Is Too Light

Typically, you want to use a concealer that is one shade lighter than your foundation and skin tone. This is to make the spots you’re covering disappear. If your concealer is too light, it shines as bright as a light on your face making the areas under your eyes and any spots you were hoping to hide stand out very noticeably.

You’re Sleeping in Makeup

If you’ve accidentally gone to sleep in makeup or you make it a habit most nights, you are not doing your skin any favors. Makeup is full of materials foreign to your body and wearing it for too long can actually harm your skin by causing breakouts and allowing chemicals (possibly) to seep into your body in teeny-tiny amount. Mostly it just causes acne. Wash your face well before bed every night and this shouldn’t be a problem.

You’re Not Using Moisturizer

When you go to apply makeup, you likely wash your face first – who wants makeup on top of oily skin? But do you take the time to put on moisturizer? Think of moisturizer as the first layer of your makeup. A light moisturizer won’t feel like anything under the skin, but it will protect your skin and keep a layer between the makeup and you. Always use a moisturizer with sunscreen as well for the maximum protection.

Your Mascara Doesn’t Coat the Whole Lash

If you have light eyelashes, you are likely making a huge mistake. First you are probably using black mascara and secondly, you are likely not covering the entire lash. Blonde or light eyelashes should be using a brown mascara to appear more natural. You should also be working the mascara wand through the entire length of your lashes from roots to tip. Don’t forget to do both the top and bottom lashes; you don’t want your eyes to look lopsided, do you?

I wear black mascara and my eyelashes are dark blonde. I go from root to tip and use eyeliner to make little twigs on the bottom of my eyes xD

Make up is fun. And *can* make you look prettier.

I've never really understood the whole , "Doesn't look natural" thing though, because it's NOT natural in the first place, so why bother? But I guess if you LIKE the natural look, then it's okay... ah, I don't know...

Pink eyeshadow is worse than blue. It makes you look sick, like you have the cold from the black lagoon. It's just not a good eye color.

I always put my mascara on the top and bottom, and people make fun of me because apparently I'm "not supposed to put it on the bottom, just the top" but I do it anyways

I wear blue eye shadow sometimes. But most of the time it's grey or dark brown that I wear. I love putting on make-up and my Mom usually tells me if I look like a clown. I tend to put on too much blush and it look horrible. Great article.

I like wearing make up because it makes me look more grown up but there are very strict rules about in my school so I don't wear it to school. I do on weekends and special occassions. But I'm starting to wear it more though, like when I'm over at my friend's houses.

They're actually a bit shocked about it.

I never take off my make-up before I go to sleep, I always wake up with pandabear eyes.

But I only wear mascara and eyeliner so I don't think it's a huge problem.

Being in ColorGuard I've seen my share of make-up and bad make-up. But in Guard I don't think there is such a thing as too much. Too much is actually just enough.

I don't really wear makeup except for Guard shows though. It just gets very tedious.

Good article though. ^_____^

I personally can't use moisturizers of any kind; they make my skin break out within a day even if I don't put makeup on top of it.

I rarely wear make-up, except for sleepover where I always want my friends to make me look like 'Avril Lavigne' instead they make look like 'Amy Winehouse'. I purely think make-up is a waste of time. However it is fun!

Yeah I don't really use make up, it takes up to much time. I have half an hour to get ready.

My friends friend sleeps in make up because she thinks shes ugly, which shes not. She reaplies it before she goes to bed. Yuck!

Good article.

I have blonde eyelashes, but I wear black mascara.

I don't care though.... it's not that big of a difference. Who cares?
