A provincial girl can be betrayed not only by bad taste in clothes or a bad haircut, but also by vulgar makeup. "Masks" made of foundation, cow eyelashes and lipstick without borders are unacceptable mistakes for stylish beauties. The editorial staff of WMJ.ru will tell you how to avoid mistakes when applying beauty products and which makeup techniques should be abandoned right now.
Spotted tone and plaster on the face
The wrong tone and contrast between the neck and face are the first things that betray a provincial. Many girls apply foundation tightly to hide imperfections and create a flawlessly even tone. However, more often than not, an absolutely opposite effect is obtained: an abundant layer not only lies with plaster on the face, but also clogs the pores, which means it causes new problems with the skin.
We advise you to carefully choose a beauty product: select a product in accordance with the color and condition of your skin. To do this, first apply the cream on the neck or directly on the face in daylight and walk with it for a while: the foundation tends to oxidize and darken. Buying tone immediately would be a mistake. Who knows, maybe in half an hour it will roll down, sink into pores, accentuate peeling, or even turn you into a spotted leopard.
If you have dry or combination skin, choose an oily cream to hide flaking, if problematic, first use the primer as a base for makeup, and then apply a foundation or cream powder to remove excess oily shine. Pay attention to the time of year: in spring and summer, give preference to products with a light texture, in winter - moisturizers.
Porcelain dolls and tiger stripes
Even a “mask” made from foundation is not as scary as a layer of white powder on your face - do not make yourself a porcelain doll if your skin tone is far from ivory. The task of the powder is to fix the makeup and smooth out the relief, and not change the complexion.
All this also applies to contouring. Remember, it must be invisible! Bright orange stripes and war paint are frequent mistakes of girls who dream of sharp cheekbones. Be careful when choosing a highlighter: products with large particles are suitable only for evening make-up. The glow of the skin, which will be visible from the moon, is one of the signs of bad taste.
Combination of incongruous
Making mistakes when combining colors is permissible only for provincial young ladies. For the rest, we recommend paying attention to the harmonious combination of beauty products with eye color and skin tone. In order not to look vulgar, competently place accents on the eyes and lips. For everyday makeup, just one will be enough for the whole look.
Don't forget about color compatibility. If you have dark skin, do not use lilac or gray shades, choose golden or brown. Be careful when using a pink palette for makeup: some shades can create the effect of teary eyes. Incorrectly chosen colors for the make-up sometimes aggravates the inaccuracy when creating it. You should not think that the careless application of eyeshadow or pencil will go unnoticed by others, on the contrary, it will not leave the best impression of you.
Unkempt lips and flowing lipstick
Some girls use foundation for other purposes, such as lip makeup, deliberately creating the effect of soreness. Such a ridiculous technique harms the lips: it dries out the skin, clogs into cracks and rolls down. For a nude look, choose a matte beige lipstick or a delicate shade of gloss. Fortunately, most girls have disaccustomed to using a foundation instead of lipstick, but matte lipstick, which lies in chunks on unkempt lips, is still found everywhere.
Do not immediately apply decorative cosmetics, you must first prepare the skin. Use a mild scrub followed by oil or balm. Matte lipsticks should be discarded if your lips suffer from flaking. In this case, it is better to give preference to cream and satin textures or even lip glosses. Don't forget about the outline. If you do not want to deliberately create the effect of kissed lips, do not use lipstick without a pencil. As soon as she spreads, and forgive, goodbye, neat makeup.
What could be worse than matte lipstick on chapped lips? Nothing but residues on the teeth. To prevent such an oversight, often go to the mirror and check the condition of your makeup.
Volume 3D and eyelashes "spider legs"
Excessively extended eyelashes also look vulgar. An effective and convenient way will save more than one minute a day, but the procedure has its drawbacks. Every 1.5-2 weeks, the eyelashes need to be updated, which sometimes turns out to be a real problem for girls: inexperienced masters spoil them or create the effect of cow eyelashes.
Worse than the eyelashes tangled in the eyebrows, only the trend back in fashion in the 60s - Twiggy's favorite makeup, cilia "spider legs" can scare anyone. Maybe on the cult model of the last century, stuck eyelashes look attractive, but for modern girls, we do not recommend repeating this image. After all, this trend is appropriate on the catwalks, not in real life.
