Makeup Mistakes

When taking your makeup from day to night, there are a few “don’ts” that can make all the difference.

  • Choose dramatic eyes or bold lips, not both.  You'll avoid an overdone look.
  • Don’t load up on powder.
  • Avoid long-lasting lipsticks on days when you have evening plans. That way you can easily revamp your look for night.
  • Be wary of extra mascara. After a long day, it may just get clumpy.
  • Avoid powder under the eyes. It can settle into fine lines over the course of the day and look like wrinkles.
