Common Makeup Mistakes That We All Make

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in DIY, How To, Life, Uncategorized

Nothing makes me more envious than watching makeup tutorials and not being able to mimic what they are doing! I wish I had the ability to do amazing makeup without having to think about what to do next. After watching about a million makeup tutorial’s I began to take note on some things I was doing wrong. I noticed a huge difference in my makeup once I followed the tutorial steps and not my own routine. They are all quick and easy fixes that can help your makeup look fierce! I feel the need to share these beauty hacks with everyone since they helped me tremendously! Here are some common makeup mistakes that we have all made at one time!

 

Foundation-

DO: apply moisturizer and primer before foundation.

DON’T: apply foundation to bare skin

 

Concealer-

DO: use a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your foundation

DON’T: conceal under eye circles without using a corrector first

 

Powder-

DO: set foundation with a setting powder

DON’T: use foundation powder to set makeup

 

Contour-

DO: use a taupe matte bronzer

DON’T: use a warmed tone bronzer

 

Highlight-

DO: highlight high points of cheeks, nose and cupids bow

DON’T: highlight apples of cheeks if you have large pores

 

Blush- 

DO: apply blush on apple of cheeks and blend upward

DON’T: blend blush below the apple of the cheek

 

Eyes- 

DO: use a primer on lids for shadow, use a warm toned crease color

DON’T: apply shadow to bare lids or use shimmer in the crease

 

Eyeliner-

DO: use a pencil or gel for natural definition, blend eyeliner into a subtle cat eye and blend bottom lash line

DON’T- use a harsh liquid liner, drag eyeliner and leave a harsh line

 

Lashes-

DO: curl lashes before applying mascara and use falsies with a thin band

DON’T: curl lashes after applying mascara and use falsies with a thick band

 

Lip Liner-

DO: outline your lips using small strokes

DON’T: drag the liner in one harsh line

  • PROM IS NOT CANCELLED! In fact as we're speaking right now, there are already a number of parents in the community setting up private proms for a later date. We could really use your help as well in coordinating this private event for your children and their class.

    If each school can get 10 parents to start on their side I believe we can accomplish our goal of making sure everyone still has a prom this year. In order to keep costs low, it's time to try and bring the proms back to the school gyms as hosts. It may be difficult to convince the schools right now, but as this movement I'm going to call #PROMFOREVER gains traction, In the end it may break down into a few mini proms for a school instead of 1 big one as parents decide to host in their homes if they can't get the schools on board.

    This is going to take some work but we have the time to do it now. #PROMFOREVER. We need to get involved in the community! the limo companies, floral companies, live entertainment companies etc... Anyone who is normally involved in prom and would be affected if there was no prom.

    Many of you are thinking to yourself while reading this, yeah fat chance, you're a dreamer! But seriously THIS CAN HAPPEN. the question is are you going to be a part of it, or are you going to remain complacent and watch and see what others can do for you.

    One of the greatest joys I have in life and why I love this business so much is because I can have a thought transition into reality. I want you to enjoy this same feeling when this nonsense is all over. Not only are you going to save PROM but you are going to give so many young Americans the RIGHT THEY HAVE EARNED to experience this right of passage. This is an important step these young men and women need to take into the next stage of their lives.

    This is not a special time in human history. We have fought disease before and we will fight it again. It is through the resilience of our species that we overcome what is thought to be impossible.

    We are the Impossible
    We are Fighters
    We are Winners
