8 Solutions to Common Makeup Problems

3/29/2015 08:49:00 PM

Hey everyone,

I was thinking about how such small makeup problems are so common in our daily lives. So, I went to Reddit (my new favorite place!) and post a thread asking what people's common makeup problems are and here are some of them WITH the solutions!

1- Lipstick Your on Teeth: this is my personal "common makeup problem" that started this post! A quick fix to this problem is, after you've applied your lipstick, stick your index finger in between your lips and pull, which will pull out all the extra product.

2- Mascara on lids: you know when you've done a really pretty eye look or finally perfected your liner and want to finish of with mascara but then it gets on your lids and ruins everything? Yup, I've been through this too many times. An easy, quick fix is to use a card, post-it or spoon to create a barrier between your lid and the mascara wand.

3- Too much blush/bronzer/highlighter: sometimes I can go a little overboard with my powder products and I hate myself because I don't want to re-do foundation all over again! The easiest thing to do is to use your beauty blender or your foundation brush and with whatever is on it and blend  the product till its enough.

4- Wings of Your Liner are Not Even: an easy trick to get your eyeliner to be even and twins instead of sisters is to use a post-it, tape, or a spoon to achieve it!

5- Eyeshadow Creasing: This has such an easy, quick fix! Prime your lids with a GOOD primer (favorites are the Lorac one and the ELF one) then set it with a skin tone shade before your shadow or liner!

6- Covering Up Imperfections: I won't go too much into detail about this point because I have a whole post on color correcting (click here) but basically, your spots, redness, dark circles, etc aren't getting covered because you aren't color correcting them first!

7- Wrong Eyeshadow For Your Eye Shape: for the longest time, I didn't know I have hooded eyelids so I always thought something was wrong with me because eyeshadow never looked the same as it did in the tutorial I watched. If you want to learn more about what eye shape you have, I already have a post on it (here)!

8- Liquid Liner Getting Into Your Eyelashes: this is also one I struggle with greatly and always ruins my mascara because the liner dries and makes my lashes crunchy! An easy tip is to take a clean spooli and brush out your lashes before applying mascara.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! If you have any common makeup problems, leave them in the comments below!
