6 Common Makeup Mistakes and How to Fix Them

1 Using the Wrong Color Foundation // You’ve seen it time and again. Foundation that makes a woman’s face look artificial or orange. Don’t fall victim to this makeup faux pas. Foundation should match natural skin color as closely as possible. To do this, find your skin’s undertone and then test foundation on your jawline (in good lighting) for a most accurate match. I find the best lighting to check any makeup is outdoors. Hop in your car, during the day, and pull down your vanity mirror to scope out how samples appear on your skin. It’s also important to choose a foundation that works with your skin type. Those with oily skin should use a lighter formula, like W3LL People Altruist Mineral Foundation. Dry skin types should lean toward a more emollient product, like Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation, to steer clear of flakiness or cracking.

2 Using the Wrong Color Concealer // This is an easy mistake to make, but super important to avoid. The idea is to camouflage blemishes and discoloration, and brighten dark circles, without going too light or too dark. A lightweight, creamy formula made with natural ingredients, like Oscar-worthy Ilia Beauty Vivid Concealer, provides natural looking coverage. Pro tip: Choose a concealer one shade lighter than your foundation color.
