Makeup is never an easy game to play with. Basic guidelines are a must to be followed along-with a few makeup hacks that can save you from makeup disasters. But we end up with obvious blunders and this can be a really frustrating at times. In order to save you from such embarrassments, I offer you six makeup nightmares every girl deals with.
Right from lipstick bleeding and eyeliner getting smudged to foundation tides and too much of highlighter, even celebs go through such makeup disasters. Ignorance is no shame, but not working upon your flaws can make you suffer.
Here are 6 makeup errors to avoid –
1. Your eye getting poked by mascara wand every time you try applying it
This is one of the most common makeup struggles for me. At times when I am in a rush or do not pay much heed, I end up poking my eye with the mascara wand, and believe me, not only my eyes hurt, but the black tears flowing through kajal and mascara ruin the entire one side of my face. And having no other option I have to wipe off the face and reapply everything.
2. Blinking soon after applying the mascara
I have this one more bad habit – I immediately blink soon after I have applied mascara, ending up with mascara all over my under eye and cheeks area. Instead of looking for a cotton pad to wipe it off, always try not blinking and letting the lashes dry till couple of seconds. You can also use a tissue paper while applying the mascara, so that it doesn’t get into your cheeks while blinking.

3. The fear of getting foundation tide marks constantly haunts us
Let’s admit it; we are not makeup professionals who enable ceramic faces by effortlessly playing with foundation. Blending is the key to perfect foundation and it is one of the most difficult tasks to do. Whenever I get ready for party or any event, I am constantly haunted by the fear that I haven’t blended properly my foundation. I keep saying it to myself, “I know I have a cake face. I bet it.” In order to save yourself from embarrassments, make sure you have blended your foundation well before leaving the house.
4. Eye makeup under the eyes every morning
No matter how much time I have spent in cleansing my makeup, especially the eye area, I always happen to wake up with panda eyes. Duh! So no matter how much you are tired, make sure to wipe out every bit of eye makeup before going to bed, as this may lead you to under eye dark circles the next morning.
5. Overdoing of dry shampoo
Overdoing of dry shampoo may leave us look like the ‘Storm’ character played by Halle Berry in X Men series. Now in order to save yourself from the tag of ‘glamorous granny’, make sure you have applied a little amount of powder.
6. Not rinsing off conditioner properly
Remember when Anna Kendrick’s tweet from Twitter? Here is what she had tweeted,
If you are in a rush then either skip your head wash or else wash properly after shampooing and rinse off conditioner well.
So those are following six makeup nightmares every girl deals with. Hope you enjoyed this post!
