DHAKA: Does your foundation look like a white mask on your face? Are your eyebrows tweezed to skimpy arcs? And as for your lips, are they smeared with overly dark lip colour?
If you said yes to any of the above, it is time to work on these beauty blunders. Some of the common ones these days are to do with the wrong usage of makeup and colour. While cosmetics are available in plenty, it is very important to choose the ones that suit your face and enhance your features, instead of covering up everything in a sweep of colour.
The biggest blunder that experts always mention has to do with foundation. It is important to choose textures that melt into your skin. Anything that sits on the skin and covers it with a thick coat of colour can only age you by several years. The sheer ones that disappear into the face and add an instant glow to the face are best. Also remember to match your face to your neck, otherwise your face will be several shades fairer.
The other big beauty blunder is wearing too much mascara. While all beauty experts agree that this product has to be high on your must-wear list, it is important to wear only around 2 coats, not 10, otherwise your lashes will look like plastic leaves. Also skip adding mascara to your lower lashes if you want to look younger. And the trend now is to go for thicker eybrows.
Another beauty no-no these days lies in the use of contrasting lip liner. This fad disappeared years ago. Today, keeping your liner the same shade as your lipstick is the norm and it is best to keep it that way. Also lighter colours look best.
It is best to always work your cosmetics with a light hand to look totally fabulous.
