Lip liner darker than lipstick
The make-up chic of the times of Alena Apina, a beauty synonym for a light green top, an ideal addition to chicken highlights. Dear ones, this is the 21st century. Plush skirts and other joys of the 90s have long been forgotten.
What will help you: matte lipsticks with which you don’t need a pencil at all. The best are in the Chanel Double Intensite line, as well as Lime Crime, Inglot and Giorgio Armani Beauty.
Foundation darker than skin
You think it’s refreshing, light tan and all. Surprise: You have a neck under your chin and it contrasts with your brown face.
What will help you: a pigment that can be added to a regular moisturizer drop by drop, varying the degree of “tanning”. Clinique and Guerlain have them.
Shadows “under the clothes”
I do not argue, makeup and what you are wearing should speak the same language. But not in the language of Ellochka the Ogre! Literal dubbing is boring and unfashionable.
What will help you: shades of nude shades – they are universal and suitable for any look. Many shades – in the palettes Urban Decay, MAC, Make Up For Ever and The Balm.
Spring sky, first forget-me-nots and thrush eggs – leave these lovely shades to Malvina from the Theater of the Young Spectator. A grown woman and blue shadows like a dolphin and a mermaid are not a couple, not a couple, not a couple.
What will help you: if the craving for blue is ineradicable, replace the shadows with a pencil – and subtly bring in the mucous membrane on the lower eyelids with it.
Orange eyebrow pencils
No, of course they appear brown. And in a slate pencil they really seem to be like that, but this is a hoax. In fact (that is, on the skin), the reddish undertone betrays the fact that the eyebrows are made up – and, alas, unsuccessfully (unless you yourself are red). Clown Pencil? Head of the general store Larysa Ivanna? A relative of Carlson? Who are you, sister?
What will help you: the ingenious Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencils, Benefit eyebrow gels or Guerlain shadows – all in a cool dark gray range.
Orange circles instead of blush
Red cheeks are even more evil than eyebrows. In short, going over the top with bronzers on any part of your body is cheap. And suspicious. What if you have a rare Malaysian fever?
What will help you: for cheeks – blush of natural pink shades with a light shimmer (such as Bobbi Brown has), and for cheekbones and décolleté – high-quality highlighters, for example, MAC or Estée Lauder.
Just like the commas from punctuation textbooks. Sit down, deuce – this shape makes the eyes smaller and disturbs the proportions of the face. The “tails” of the correct arrows smoothly stretch to the eyebrows – this “stretches” the eyelids and makes the look more expressive.
What will help you: eyeliners, markers, with which it is easy to draw long and smooth lines, for example, Clarins or L’Oreal Paris.
