11 Worst & Bad Beauty Mistakes



{1} Too much blush
 Apply a small amount on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the hair line. Looking like a clown is not the look you want to achieve unless it's for a Halloween costume.


{2} Mismatched face & neck
Don't forget to match your face to your neck. To avoid looking like you are wearing a mask, blend your foundation down your neck to the decolletage.

 

{3} Hair down past your derriere
Long hair is beautiful and sexy, but it can be way too much of a good thing. 

 If I had known that super long hair was going to be the new thing in a few years, I would never have cut it. My hair used to be this long.

{4} Visible Lip Liner
There is no need to contour your lips in a shade darker than your skin tone or lipstick. Find a shade that matches or close to it.


{5} Public Grooming
Keep the nail clipping and hair brushing behind closed doors or at least in the ladies room. 

 

{6} Bronzer Overboard
Bronzer should make the skin appear warmer and if blended properly it is used to contour. NOT to look like Lindsay Lohan. {Enough said}


{7} Chipped Manicures
For goodness sakes, if you don't have the time to do a fresh coat of polish then take it off and buff your nails.



{8} Excessive Glitter
A little glitter is nice, but no one wants to look like a kindergarten's craft project.


{9} Overfilled Lips
We all know that Angelina Jolie has nice natural full lips that everyone wants, but looking like a fish when you overdose on botox isn't!


{10} Long, Curving Nails
A little length with polish is acceptable but once your nails make texting a challenge than its time to pull out the clippers.

{11} Tanning
We all know the cons of tanning and we all love to do it. Wear an SPF 30 or higher and/ or Self Tanner.

  9. These are all great tips that everyone seems to forget. I can't stand people who brush their hair while at restaurants, and the sound of nail clipping in public is horrible!
