Hey guys! first of all I wanna say Happy September? I'm kinda happy and at the same time kinda sad, cause summer is over. but I'm very excited for the sweater weather which is kinda starting in my country cause it was raining tonight, and it hasn't for a long time now. I'm looking forward to first week of school that starts in 15 days and I think this year is going to be interesting. Christmas, New Year party in my school. awesome! So, now let's get to straight to business.
I was looking around the Internet and saw a lot of articles with this title and I tried the stuff that they were doing and chose top 5 things that people usually do wrong while putting their makeup on.
The first tip is about makeup sponges. The thing is you have to wet your beauty blender sponge.it maybe a common sense for other people but yeah, I just discovered it. The point of a cosmetic sponge is basically to put foundation on and blend in a flawless way and doing it with a dry sponge - It's just no moisture in it. And also wet your sponge and see how huge it actually becomes. putting your foundation with a dry sponge won't make it natural looking and it won't blend very well, at least you have to put some effort to blend it. So Wet your sponges, it even says it on the directions.
The second thing you do wrong is putting concealer before foundation! and now as I know, it makes sense to me. why lighten your eye area if you are gonna put your foundation over it and just cover it up? also I just wanted to include the fact that putting your concealer in a huge triangle under your eyes is wrong too. what you actually have to do is, bend your head downwards and look in the mirror, that's the perfect angle to see where your dark areas under your eyes are. and just cover then up with the concealer and also you just use less product. so yeah, i made that mistake in my #B2SwithAnne makeup tutorial. don't judge me, now i know.
now let's get to the powder. You're probably like, what can it be?! powder, seems pretty self explanatory right? but you are wrong. of course setting your foundation with powder is important not to get oily and be matte the whole day, but , you mustn't put powder all over your face. that's right. you have to put it on the T-Zone and your chin. shortly just skip the bottom part of your cheeks, because it has to look fresh. they are supposed to have a little glow on them. cheeks are a very dry area and we don't want it to dry out even more. So don't overpowder your face ladies.
and the last way you are 'failing' at putting on makeup is not moisturizing your lips before putting lipstick. do it and you'll notice that the application is a lot smoother and your lips look luscious and nice.
This is it. hope you enjoyed and found it helpful
