Makeup is an integral part of life for most women, our armor and weapons. According to some research, a woman spends approximately 335 hours a year on their appearance. And how disappointing when all your efforts are lost because of one mistake, which spoils the whole way, forcing his owner to look unkempt! But enough regrets: errors and need to analyse them and draw conclusions.
The female half of edition AdMe went through several hundred photos of famous beauties, had identified errors in the makeup that they have ever made, and have sworn a solemn oath never to do. I share with you my findings.
Amber heard on the left photo only 32, but thickly overlaid tone said every, even the small wrinkle on her face, adding to her 10 years. On the right is a photo of amber who made a choice in favor of natural makeup, looks much younger.
- A sense of proportion will not make such mistakes: the Foundation must align your natural skin color, and not to close it.
- Before applying the tone, prepare the skin: it should be well cleaned and hydrated.
- Use after applying tone fixing spray or thermal water. This will allow you to bond all the layers of tone, if you used multiple means.
- In age makeup, avoid tight tone. Usually it is lip service, highlighting all the imperfections.
What effect he wanted to achieve Sienna Miller, causing these orange spots bronzer for porcelain skin tone, is unknown, as she has a well defined face, not needing to be contouring. But we know what she has achieved: for 13 years this is a bad photo show novice makeup artists telling me what not to do.
“Chic and Shine ladies!” said makeup artist Leah Michelle and gave. So much so that 30-year-old actress began to look like the elderly victim of a Solarium. Compare for yourself how much fresher and younger looking lia without a hard contouring and strobbing (photo of one).
But Eva Longoria, however, decided to depart from the usual sultry image and give an aristocratic pallor. But selecting for these purposes, cool shades and complementing make dramatic Smokey eyes, got unhealthy appearance. Compare: in the second photo, the warm colors and the absence of sharp spots work great on eve.
- The contouring is not a trend, but if you don’t want to give up the color, pick the right color: on the darker tone of the basic and not conflicting temperature.
- Strobing is also passed the position, but if desired, you can add the skin a light glow using a liquid highlighter, or a very fine grinding.
- And again recall the sense of proportion: bronzer and concealers open a wide field for experiments, but sometimes (and even often) it is better not to stray too far from the original data.
Mother of pearl
Pearl deserves a separate Chapter. Just look how his misplaced radiance of the aged Catherine Zeta-Jones. Here, of course, the tone of the face and the color of the lipstick, but just imagine that the eyes and lips don’t glow, and immediately becomes much better. And if you do not deviate from your color type, if not great.
Except that mother of pearl look older, it also spoils the pictures blecua under the flashes and visually “eating” part of the face. Demonstrated, rose McGowan in his “foil”. I hope she did it on purpose, because rose looks much better when not distracting us from your beauty flashes mother of pearl cosmetics.
- Just forget about the pearl: if you more than 25 years, he’s irrelevant. And in the age makeup also criminal threat.
- As an option… no, no options — forget.
What happened to the eyebrows rasida Jones and why are they so different, we’ll never know, but the fact that the entire makeup from this unfortunate asymmetry looks bad, obviously. But a year earlier the actress showed quite a good edge. By the way, notice the effect on the face the color of lipstick: inappropriate tone really cheapens the image.
The screen black-browed blonde Emily Clark walks literally on the edge, but usually to keep from falling her dark help the hair roots. Not this time… In the case of Emily chalk it up to the theatricality of the image (there is some blush worth!), but in everyday life, if you don’t fly on dragons, it is best to strike a balance between the eyebrow color and hair.
But Claire Danes is neglected makeup eyebrow, and as a result they disappeared from the face. Of course, the blonde had to be very careful with the drawing of the eyebrows, Claire, probably, were afraid to overdo it… But in this case shouldn’t have been so zealous with the eye makeup. Fortunately, the actress rarely makes mistakes in the way.
- Today’s fashion is very supportive of our natural brow: they do not need to mercilessly pluck quite a bit to trim shape and style.
- Do not cut eyebrows: it’s always noticeable, as it looks unnatural. Gel for styling eyebrows will help the hair to lie the way you want.
- Eyebrows create the mood of your face so try to avoid drastic changes of shape.
- The color of the eyebrows should harmonize with the color of the hair and the overall tone of the makeup, not coming out of it, but not disappearing in the background of a more bright spots.

Mascara and eyeliner
I think Britney Spears is pictured left — after a long noisy parties in a hot room? Or is it a difficult period in her life associated with divorce and alcohol? Not at all, it’s a day basketball game, which the singer called for along with a handsome boyfriend. But due to careless rasplyvsheysya eyeliner Britney looks untidy. In the second photo it’s much better.
And Andrea Riseboro decided to do without eyeliner. But have not regretted mascara. The result is a clear imbalance in the makeup and came to the fore reddened whites of the eyes. Compare with the second photo where there are no such mistakes.
- Use a base eyeshadow. Or at least apply a thin layer of powder under the liner or pencil.
- If the architectural clarity of the lines is not your goal, you can go over the eyeliner with eye shadow of the same color. Only the shadow needs to be pigmented, the brush is flat, but the movement is not rubbing, and prikladyvaya.
- Keep a package of cotton swabs for her makeup. And to do it better with a dry stick.
- Try to observe the harmony between mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow: when one visually overrides everything else, the result is rarely good.
- Purchase only quality cosmetics.
The contour of the lips
Paloma faith — a lady quite shocking, but smeared lipstick is not a part of the image, because usually makeup the singer is pretty neat. And extravagant hat this blunder to cover up.
- To lipstick kept within the permitted limits, these limits need to outline with lip pencil.
- Well-proven primer under lipstick. Especially useful they beauties a little over 30, so as to prevent the spreading of lipstick on minor wrinkles.
- Lovely lipsticks with a matte or satin finish.
- Less likely to spread the lipstick, applied a thin layer. Blot with a paper towel after make up, but it is better to paint them with a brush, not a stick.
This season in the fashion of monotone and all shades of turquoise. But to do this makeup and do not step over the line of funny is quite difficult. Even Sarah Jessica Parker it is not quite possible. However, the photo on the left is an image of Sarah Jessica for the 2018 Met Gala, and it’s almost a theatrical performance. In real life, the actress clearly separates what is fashionable and what suits her.
- Fashion designers every season to give a dozen creative ideas: it’s their job to make it boring. But not all findings from the catwalk are suitable for everyday life.
- Before heading to the office or event with square shadows, arrows to the temples or silver lipstick on the face, try to do this makeup at home. Sure it’s not too much?
- Sometimes these ambiguous trends can be adapted to real life: to leave the shape and color of the arrows, but to carry them in a more adequate size, for example. Try and find the good.
