Five biggest make up errors ever
Make up is very big part of every woman's life.
But mistakes are made every day. Check out some of the more common errors when applying make up so you don't end up looking like a complete fool.
1. Please don't apply foundation on top of dry, flaky skin.
Applying make up on dry skin can turn out to look very bad.
Creamy foundation will not hide dryness or flakiness. It is bound to exaggerate it by making your skin look old and tired, according to Huffington Post.
Exfoliating and moisturising your skin regularly are two ways to help improve the condition of your skin.
Here are some tips on countering dry skin especially when you have a big event to attend:
Stop right there lady! Don't skip the primer part of your make-up process.
Primers help bring down the shine on oily skin when wearing makeup, smooth on a mattifying face primer before applying foundation.
Here's why the perfect primer is very important and how you should apply it:
Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! That's not the right colour, sister.
Yes, foundation does help even out skin tones and discolouration. But, one of the bigger mistakes that women make is to go for foundation that is shade lighter which they will think will help with making them glow.

"Choose a foundation that is right for your skin type (moisturising, oil-free, good for sensitive skin, etc.) with the coverage you desire," says Carol Shaw, celebrity make up aritst and creator of LORAC Cosmetics, Huffington Post reported.
Here's a video tutorial on choosing the best foundation colour for you:
Enough! You've put that foundation on too thick.
Thicker foundation doesn't cover discolouration or fine lines more. Instead, its effect is contrary - it settles into fine lines making them extra obvious.
It doesn't only have a higher tendency of clogging up your skin but it also gives you that awful "cake face".
Be sure to use the right amount which will help conceal and even out discolouration and nothing more.
Thickly lined eyes don't give you the cat-eye.
Here's just one rule that'll make it happen for you.
When lining the top of rounded eyes, thicken the drawn line on the outer third of your eye or once past the highest point of your eye (usually the centre) for the elongated effect.

If the line runs thick anything before the highest point, chances are you're about to make your eyes rounder than they already are.
