Once upon a time, these makeup looks might have been fashionable and up to date, but in the 21st century they’re a big no no. Here’s a rundown of some of the worst makeup crimes a person can commit, so you know to avoid them!
– Darker lipliner than lipstick.
Or perhaps just no lipstick at all, as is occasionally seen (unfortunately). This ‘fashion’ has never been in style, because not only is it unflattering, it just looks terrible. Lipliner is meant to create a neat edge to lipstick, and should be the same shade as the lipstick used. It isn’t meant to be used to create a darker shape around the lips, so don’t do it!
– Colored eyeshadow up to the eyebrows.
The main eyeshadow color should only go up to the top of the eyelids, ending just where the bulge for the eye finishes. However, we’ve all seen women who wear bright colors – sometimes blue and green – right up to their eyebrow arches. It isn’t a good look, particularly as it makes a person look permanently startled.
– Perfectly round blusher.
We’re talking blusher applied in a perfect circle, with no blending in to the rest of the face. This makeup disaster is reminiscent of clowns thanks to its perfect bright red circles that don’t compliment the face, just make a person look comical. Apply blusher sparingly and using a sweeping motion of the apple of the cheek to avoid committing this makeup sin.
