Common makeup mistakes and their remedies

Hey loves, how has the day been so far? Super I hope. I am on snapchat guys (dobzifingers)..wooooppp!!! Follow me for some behind the scenes action. Today, I am going to be sharing with you a few common makeup mistakes made by some of us and how to get them right. I even made a short clip on this, that I'll upload on my Instagram page. Let's get to it then, here's a list of some common makeup mistakes and how to avoid making them.
Common makeup mistakes and their remedies

Mistake 1 - Over drawing the brows/Cleaning up (especially the top brow) with lighter concealer/foundation: In an attempt to get a different brow shape from the natural one, probably one wants to have more of an arch where the natural brow isn’t naturally arched or wants the brows higher or lower than the natural brows are, they end up over drawing the brows. Another mistake is cleaning up the brows (especially the top brow) with very light concealer.

Get it Right: Visit and let a professional shape your brows the best way that suits and flatters your face shape, high eye brow archs aren’t for every face shape. When drawing the brows, trace your natural brow line as opposed to trying to change your natural brow shape and then fill in lightly. To clean up, you can use concealer/foundation a shade or two (max) lighter than your skin shade to clean up the under brow but for the top brow, use only concealer/foundation that is your exact skin shade.

Mistake 2 – Using white shadow or shimmer to highlight the brow bone: This is not a good look at all and this mistake believe it or not, adds years to your face. STOP IT!

Get it Right: Opt for matte shades for your brow bone; this is a more flattering look. I don’t even really highlight my brow bones but when I do, sometimes, I use powder 2-3 shades lighter than my skin tone.

Mistake 3 – Highlighting and setting under eye concealer with very light concealer and powder: Under eye concealing when done correctly is supposed to give a well-rested look and a highlight that looks natural.

Get it Right: To do this correctly, use concealer 2 shades lighter than your skin tone and blend lightly till it blends into the skin seamlessly, then set with a powder 1 or 2 shades lighter.

Mistake 4 – Contouring with very dark colors: contouring when done correctly is supposed to help define one's facial features but when done wrongly and with very dark colors, you end up looking you just have dirt slapped on your face.

Get it Right: The right way to contour is to use concealer/powder 2 shades darker, place the darker color on the parts of your face that you want receded and blend until it is seamless on your skin.
