Common Makeup Mistakes. Common and noticable makeup mistakes can really make a person look bad. Simple problems can also lead to bad skin and natural complexion.

Never a cakey foundation - it can be too heavy on your skin. It is true that cakey foundations create a good coverage and hide skin imperfections but sometimes / especially if you are wearing a wrong shade/ they may make your face look unnatural and like a mask.

A foundation should always match your natural skin tone but unfortunately many women choose a foundation that is two or three shades darker than their skin tone and the result is a face that looks comically and unnatural. Most of the women think that a darker shade of a foundation will act like a bronzer and will create a summer tan but for this aim there are those specifically designed products called bronzers. To find the perfect shade of a foundation consult a beauty consultant or ask your beautician.

Never use too much of a foundation to hide pimples, scars, small pimples or dark circles under the eyes. For this aim use a concealer — use a light creamy formula that provides good coverage. You can apply the concealer before or after the foundation depending on the result you want to achieve.

Always blend the foundation well after application. It’s essential, otherwise your face may look like a mask. Start blending at the forehead and slowly spread all over your face, moving in circular motions.
