1. Wearing The Wrong Foundation Shade

Foundation is supposed to gel in with your skin tone giving it an even colour. It is necessary to correctly determine the undertone. The correct colour will blend with your skin tone, making it look natural.

3. Applying makeup On Dry Skin

This is the worst thing you can do to your skin. Applying foundation on dry skin will make it more rough and make the freckles more prominent. Exfoliate your skin and get rid of the dryness before application of makeup.

4. Letting The Lipstick Bleed

Apply the shade that suits your over all look, with time, lips start to lose their natural definition, this leads women in making a wrong decision of the shade. Don’t let the lipstick smudge out from the edges. Use a brush to slather on the right amount of colour without adding too much.

7. Applying The Wrong Concealer

Try going with a color that is one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. If you select the right concealer for your skin tone it does wonders! But if you don’t it gives you the most unnatural look.

8. Wearing Too Much Face Powder

Applying face powder after foundation will give your skin a fuller coverage and it is also used to matte oily skin. But, we tend to over do using a face powder and its excess makes you look super aged.
