How to choose a shade of concealer and why Slavic girls don't go for tight contouring? Olga Tomina (@tominamakeup) explained how to avoid major makeup mistakes.
Mistake 1: foundation with a pinkish undertone
Often girls (especially tanned ones) use a tonal foundation with a pinkish undertone. It gives an unhealthy complexion to the face. I understand how difficult it is to find the right beige tone, but it is very important.
Mistake 2: too much powder
Young girls and adolescents with problematic oily skin are often addicted to powder. No wonder they say that powder is the second enemy after the sun. For a matte finish, just buy a foundation for your skin type.
Mistake 3: eyebrow shaping
Nothing spoils a woman more than coarse, plucked, crooked or overly bright eyebrows. They give age! As well as contrasting makeup (I talked about this in the previous article).
Mistake 4: light concealer
One of the most popular questions: "How to hide bruises under the eyes?" Many people think that concealers save light shades. In fact, they only lighten obvious pigmentation, bluish and bluish bruises, depressions. The result is heavy makeup under the eyes. Concealer should be warm peach or salmon color.
Mistake 5: incorrect face correction
I mean the heavy contouring that we see, for example, on Kim Kardashian. A clear complex correction is popular in the Middle East and North Caucasus. This is important for local girls: they have dense skin and voluminous facial features.
Slavs with thin, fair skin, as a rule, by the age of 30 have wrinkles, depressions, which will only emphasize tight contouring. It is better to take a blush or light concealer and place accents on your face correctly.
Mistake 6: dark lipstick on thin lips
Dark lipstick shades do not suit girls with thin, small lips. If you decide on a saturated shade, visually enlarge them with a pencil, painting over the outline. At the same time, avoid the center of the lower lip and the arch of the Cupid - here the natural relief is most pronounced.
Mistake 7: matte textures on dry lips
Matte long-lasting textures accentuate flakiness and dry lips. Often clients ask me to use matte red lipstick, but I understand that in an hour there will be “Sahara” on my lips. Then I take a long-lasting pencil and put creamy lipstick on top of it. I love Inglot Lip Paint. It gives a beautiful volume. Not super long lasting, but high quality lipsticks from Huda Beauty. Dose of Colors “Kiss of Fire” has the perfect red shade.
Mistake 8: incorrect application of the highlighter
When applying the highlighter, avoid cavities in your face - this makeup will create the effect of a sweaty face.
Mistake 9: fear of pink blush
Blush on the "apples" of the cheeks will add volume. If you want to visually narrow your face, apply them diagonally over your cheekbones. Girls are often afraid of pink blush. In fact, nothing is more refreshing than shades of pink and peach. For a lasting effect, apply the creamy blush first and fix it dry.
