Applying makeup can be very tricky, especially when you are in a hurry. You just can’t avoid getting smudges or too much of something, no matter how skilled you are. And sometimes, in a state of panic, you just can’t seem to find the right fix for your problem—you end up turning the tiny dot of liquid eyeliner into a huge, dark smudge right across your cheek! Say goodbye to these makeup disasters with a few easy tips!
Running Mascara or Smudged Eyeliner
If you used a regular mascara or eyeliner, it will most likely end up getting smudged around your eyes—especially if you’re at a party with a lot of dancing and canoodling. Gently wipe the smudge off with a cotton bud so it doesn’t get any bigger and touch up the entire area with your compact powder. To avoid this mishap from happening again, it is advisable to invest in water-proof cosmetic items.
Excessive Foundation or Concealer
You may not have noticed it right away, but once you’re almost done with the finishing touches, you get a good look at yourself and realize that your face is ten shades lighter than your neck! Fix this instantly by dampening your sponge and gently patting it all over your face—you may need to re-apply your blush and bronzer afterwards.
This is a very common problem among most women—they just can’t seem to balance out the eyeliner on both eyes. One side is always darker or longer than the other. Some women fix this problem by adding a little more on the other side, and then some more on the other side, and on and on until both eyes look like they’ve been punched! Avoid this dilemma by keeping a makeup remover or baby oil near you when you’re applying your eyeliner. Wipe off the excess with a cotton bud dipped in oil and pat it dry with tissue.
Makeup mishaps happen to everyone; the important thing is you do not panic once it happens and keep your head clear so you can find the perfect solution for it. Keep calm and stay pretty!
