Six Make-up No-Nos


April 20, 2012
Women of the world, don't ever do these things!!!  

1.  Too much highlight on your brow bone
Instead of actually enhancing it, too much highlight on your brow bone will only make you look oily and shiny.


2.  Unnatural brows 
Whether they are too high, too thin or just a weird shape, don't wander down the path of unnatural brows. You can check out this post for help with brow grooming. 


3.  Miss matched foundation/concealor
Whether you are trying to make your dark circles look lighter or your face look tanner, don't try to fix your skin tone with mismatched foundation.  You won't fool anyone!

4.  Clumpy mascara
If you put on tons of mascara, people aren't going to think "wow her lashes are so long!"  Instead they are going to think "wow she has on tons of mascara!"  If you really want longer lashes, try Lilash or getting lash extensions instead.



5.  Makeup overload
A really heavy eye, with a full-on lip, with a face of full of foundation, plus bronzer and blush is only going to make you look like a drag queen.  Unless you are a drag queen, pick just one feature to enhance instead of your whole face.

Sorry X-Tina, for using your picture so many times.  It turns out you have quite a few makeup felonies.

6.  Unblended eyeshadow
The purpose of eyeshadow is to add depth to your eyes, and to enhance them.  If your eyeshadow isn't blended, it won't do either of those things, and you will look like a clown.

  2. Haha, oh poor Christina. She really is a walking makeup Don't. Great tips, though. I particularly like #5. I've been working the natural makeup + bold lip look and I really love it.

  4. hahaha, this is great. I am digging x-tina's new mua on the voice....exception that her left lash flips upward and the right wings out...but her new mua on that show beats it down and bronzes her up. Not a huge fan of glitter but she is working it now. This is really cool for you to post these makeup no no's

  5. "Makeup overload" is probably the truest thing in this list. Every day, you'd see at least 1 girl with that. Personally, I'd just go to Flawless for makeup services from time to time.
