They happen to even the most experienced makeup users and can be a nuisance to life. However, running after micellar water or depriving yourself of a quality make-up every time you make a mistake is not at all necessary. A little imagination and such improvised means as cotton tampons, and a spoiled make-up can shine with renewed vigor.
If you apply mascara to the lower eyelashes, then caution does not hurt: very often it ends with black stains under the eyes, and attempts to remove this disgrace with a napkin only make it worse. Take a cotton swab and try to rub the paint in gentle circular motions. As a result, you can easily pass off a beauty "blunder" for a carelessly applied liner in the style of a messy look (which is just in trend).
Buying a base, foundation or concealer in the wrong shade is a familiar story. At first glance, it may seem that this situation has no escape routes. However, make-up masters say: such products with a creamy texture will perfectly serve you as a base for eyeshadow. All that remains for you is to shift the focus from the skin to the eye area (see also: "How to correctly place accents in makeup").
Cosmetics with a dry texture like powder, eyeshadow or bronzer tend to crumble. But this does not mean that we should give up on them if it did happen. With the help of petroleum jelly, the powder can be turned into a high-quality foundation, and with the help of ordinary alcohol, it can be restored to its solid structure. Also, there are often problems with an excess of translucent powder. To reduce the effect of dry skin to nothing, apply a moisturizing spray to it at the end of makeup: it will give the skin a softer texture.
Lots of lip contouring
Lip liner extends the lifespan of the lipstick. Even if you see that you have gone too far with the liner and your makeup does not have the most promising prospects, feel free to apply it to the entire surface of your lips, and only then - lipstick. Thanks to this, its color will become visually richer and will stay with you longer than usual.
Incorrect facial makeup sequence
Facial makeup is subject to a certain system of applying cosmetics: the primer is the first in line and creates an even base for concealer, liquid base or powder - which is preferable to whom. The primer moisturizes the skin and increases the durability of the face make-up. However, if you accidentally mixed base and primer, there is nothing wrong with that - on the contrary: in combination, these two products better fix the rest of the makeup and maintain a natural complexion.
If you have overdone your eyebrows - made them too bright and clear or powdered them too much, a make-up sponge will help fix the situation. Dab some makeup remover on her and blot her brows with it to reduce the intensity of the color and gently remove excess makeup.
