Concealer and pimples had a disagreement
We are all humans after all and if by any chance you end up having pimples don’t panic. Just make sure you don’t pop it or use a different coloured concealer.

Conceal your blemishes with a green concealer to reduce the redness and then dab a nude one to make it completely disappear.
Under Eye Concealer Gave it Away!
Hiding those unsightly eye bags is very important, but you have to choose a concealer with care. There is a big difference between hiding those puffy eyes to highlighting them all the more. Your under eye makeup should not be too light than your skin tone because if it is too light, it will end up showing on your face in glaring light!
Using makeup when your skin is screaming for moisture
This is a cardinal sin-applying makeup on dry flaky skin. When you are using makeup on chapped skin, you are doing more harm than good. When you will try to blend in your makeup, it will aggravate your already dry and damaged skin. First exfoliate your skin and then put makeup.
