I hope you are doing alright! Basically, this is another tag post! When I saw this tag post by Marilyn from MammuLikes, I was relieved that it was different! This one is interesting and a bit of a change from the rest of the tag posts too.
I’m gonna go ahead and start and we’ll see how many things I’ll manage to mention!
I don’t hate lip liner. I think it’s good to use especially with red lips. But why do you have to line them and leave the house without filling them in? I never got the gist of it… Besides, I feel that if you do that… you look like, how do I put this mildly? A slut.
Orange, tinted brows
Some middle-aged women in Malta seem to think that it is hip to wax/shave their brows completely and then tint or line their skin (cause there are no brows left to line) in an orange colour. If they had orange hair, maybe it would be understandable, but no. I don’t know where they got this idea from. Seems like Irish brows is all the previous generation desires… It might be that they look orange because the tattoo has faded – Well I guess you need to keep up with the maintenance!
Yes, a healthy glow is something we all aspire to have. So a little bit of bronzer and a bit of highlight would usually do the trick. But why do you need to look like a carrot? Some people pick the wrong colour of bronzer and even worse, they put on too much… especially if it’s a shimmery one. Why? Just, Why?!
Believe me, I love my nudes. I have spoken endlessly on my Catrice Be Natural Lipstick in #010 which I wore here, here and here and so many other times! But Nude is one thing, no lips at all is another. Unless you are doing a photo shoot where part of the final look is that, no, your lips must be seen.
Too much on your eyelids
I am one in favor of having fun with colours, like I did here, but a whole frikken rainbow is a bit over the top don’t you think? This is unless you know how to make it look good (see below)! You have time to test out colours… you don’t need to try out your 100pc palette all in one night! Pick 5 colours max and work with them. And if you’re using more, make sure you blend them VERY well! I shouldn’t be able to count them easily.
I know some eyeliners seem to fade… some fade all over your under-eye area causing you to look like a panda. But I would invest in a gel one or the essence longlasting one which costs less than 3 euros. There! Problem solved. Otherwise, you can always set it with a little bit of black eyeshadow… or go for waterproof.
Eyeliner gone wrong
Winged eyeliner can be sexy and it is something I wish to perfect. But, does it really need to reach your ears? No… it’s called ‘eye’ liner not ‘all-over face’ liner… You only need to elongate your eyes a little bit. No need to line till you get to Spain! If it’s hard for you to line your eyes neatly, maybe try a felt tip liner next time?
Nails that look like claws
I’m not gonna say much about this except for:
Fake Beauty Spots
Unless you are in a play or photo shoot, or doing an Spanish/Italian face inspired look, stick to you own freckles and beauty spots. Don’t make people wonder if your spot fell in your drink during the party…
I couldn’t find an image for this one, but you all know what I mean!
Disco Ball eyes
Shimmer can give a nice finish but don’t go overboard. Work with your matte colours and then include shimmers if you want to. Use shimmers with moderation in general. You don’t wanna end up looking like a spotlight or a disco ball…
I am sorry if I offended you with my snide comments haha! I was just having fun and trying to help here 😉 But afterall, this is just one person’s opinion. No one ever said don’t experiment!
What make up choices would you eradicate if you could? Let me know with a comment below.
