No rules to make up but..

October 16, 2007

..there are just some things that should be avoided!

Clashy make up.
Bright eyeshadow + bright blush + bright lip colors = disastrous.
Don’t try to pull off all of those looks at once. Try to choose one area that you want to draw the most attention to. Keep the rest of your make up mute.

Extremely heavy black eyeliner.
Save this look for the rockers and metal-heads (much love to them♥, I use to be one). When it comes to black eyeliner, a little bit goes a long way. If you aren’t a fan of black, try a softer shade like a brown, navy, or even a grey.

Obvious lipliner.
Chances are when everyone can see you’re wearing lipliner from a mile away…your lipliner is way too dark. Try to find a lipliner that is the same shade as your lip color you’re using. You can also try a slightly darker lipliner in the same color family as the lip color you’re wearing. This will help define your lips even more.

Too dark/harsh looking eyebrows.
Nothing is flattering when your brows are too dark. Harsh eyebrows will make you look hard and sometimes make you unapproachable. Eyebrows can make or break your overall make up look. For light haired women, shade your brows with a color that is 1-2 shades darker than your hair color. For dark haired women, shade your brows a color that is 1-2 shades lighter than your hair color. I find that using a matte eyeshadow on my brows makes for a more natural looking eyebrows.
