Are you doing yourself a disservice by doing your makeup WRONG?! It’s hard enough as it is to look awake in the morning.What you didn’t know is your probably adding to that struggle with your make up application process. Stay away from these makeup mistakes and you should be looking wide awake in no time!
#1: Monotone Colors
The best way to look more awake is by defining your facial features. Try defining your brows, eyes, cheeks, and lips and forgo the plain one-dimensional color all over look.
# 2: Under-Eye Concealer Gone Wrong
Whether its too dark or light its WRONG and its making you look like it’s past your bedtime. Make sure you are applying all of your makeup in a well lit room. Natural light works best.
# 3: Eye Makeup Primer
You must not skip this important step ESPECIALLY if you are using a dark eyeliner. The primer assists in keeping the dark color from smudging and rubbing below the eye. Unless of course you are going for the raccoon look, take note! For an even added touch use waterproof liner.
# 4: Powder OVER LOAD
Clean smooth skin looks young and refreshed. Dry, powdered skin looks old and well TIRED. Make sure you don’t over do it. Try translucent powders that eliminate the shine. Make sure you blend it in well.
# 5: Moisturize!
Please, please, please never apply your makeup before you put on a moisturizer. (Bonus points if you use one that contains SPF!) Applying any makeup on dry, flaky skin can make you look incredibly tired and dried out.
# 6: Eyeliner color GONE WRONG
If you’re cool-toned, bronze or gold eyeliner will make you look tired and sickly. If you have warm-toned skin, silvery liner can make you look just as bad. Avoid your trouble colors to look more awake.
# 7: Gray makeup
Makeup with gray undertones brings out the gray coloring in all skin tones to make you look incredibly tired and much older. Stick with a warm-colored palette to look more youthful and refreshed.
