Applying Makeup in Good Lighting

So, we all do put on a little makeup for daytime at work, or glam look for a night out. We need to be fairly familiar with makeup by now. Why not? You use makeup every day.

The possibilities are; you are duplicating the very same makeup mistakes over and over without even realizing it. Are you a repeat transgressor when applying your makeup?

Makeup 05Just recently, I’ve been reading a lot on makeup strategies from well-known makeup artists and makeup professionals and, believe it or not. They all lament about the errors that ladies make when applying makeup and these same mistakes are repeated too commonly. So, I have assembled the list of greatest errors in using makeup.

The shade that appears to vanish into your skin is the right one.

For that reason, in real light, the makeup applied will look severe and unblended, with very visible foundation and blush particularly.
