5 Simple Tips To Fix Mistakes We Almost All Make When Putting On Makeup

Have you ever been putting on your makeup and when everything is going well, you suddenly make a mistake that ruins all of your efforts? Have you had to take off your makeup some time because, without meaning to, you’ve ruined your makeup? Surely you have; it happens to all of us.


In this article, you will find five of the most common mistakes and the best tips to quickly fix them without having to take off all of your makeup!


 “I Put on Too Much Foundation”

This is a very common mistake that can be made when we put on makeup - especially when using a NEW foundation that you haven't used before. Because all formulas are different.  And can be the very reason why  you may stop wearing Foundation all together!

  •  Firstly, be sure your foundation matches your skin tone. With keeping in mind 'Less is Best' start applying lightly and add more as desired.

 TIP: It’s very important, most of all, to avoid excess foundation and concealer around the eyes. To avoid any excess in this area, start from the cheek up without putting any extra on brush.(Use your fingertips to softly blur the product in that area). Also remember, Mineral Makeup loves to be buffed into the skin, so make sure you use a clean Buffer Brush to smooth the skin.

 “My Eyeshadow Looks too Dark”

 If you’ve put on too much eyeshadow, or it looks too dark, follow these steps to quickly fix the problem:


  • If it happened on your upper eyelid, blur the eyeshadow toward the edges with a clean Blending Brush to reduce the colour. If it still looks very dark, apply a little bit of matte cream eyeshadow with a brush (our Cream Base Multisticks will help with this.. Try Naila) and blur the eyeshadow.


  • If it happened on the lower part of your eye, use a fine, clean brush to blur, or pat it softly with a Q-tip.


 “I Put on Too Much Blush”

If you applied too much blush, try the following tip:

  •  Stroke your cheek with a,  Angle Powder brush—the brush should be completely clean. If you still have too much blush on, apply a small amount of foundation to blend and fade tone, just over the blush and outer edges.

 “I Put too Much Makeup on my Eyebrows”

 When we put too much makeup on our eyebrows, we look harsh and we can’t even recognize ourselves. Follow the following tip to quickly solve this:


  • Simply use a Spoolie Brush and brush through the eyebrow hair to brush out the excess. You will see how quickly the colour you initially applied disappears.

  “I Smeared Mascara on My Eyelid”

 That’s all right. Just follow these next steps and you’ll see how you can quickly fix the problem:


  • Continue applying makeup and when you have finished, allowing enough time for the mascara to dry, apply a Q-tip right over the smudge or using a Blending Brush to smooth out the smudge. You’ll see how it quickly disappears and you don’t need to remove the makeup from your whole eye.


TIP: Using a Smudge Free Mascara will definitely help to avoid smudging!
