We all are guilty of making beauty blunders in the past from skimping on the moisturizer, wearing a lighter foundation shade that makes you look grey or by going out without a sunscreen. But, let us tell you, there are still few beauty mistakes that you didn’t realize that you’re making.
Here we have shortlisted the TOP 3 beauty blunders that you might be committing, so take notes!
MISTAKE 1: OVER APPLYING HIGHLIGHTER:
Instead of looking like the golden, mythical Greek goddess you dreamed of, you come out looking like a grease ball. Why? Because there is an art to highlighter application and the rule is: apply little, but in the right places.Here is a Basic Beauty Hooked Guide to Highlighter Application:It’s important to know what color of highlighter to use. If you have darker skin, you should go for golden and bronze tones. For pale skin, go for one with more of an ivory tone.The best places to apply highlighter are your:1) Cheekbones
2) Cupid’s bow
3) Inner corner of eyes
4) Bridge and tip of your nose
5) On the arch of your eyebrow.
For cream highlighters you can get a perfect finish using your fingers, for powdered highlighters it is recommended to use a brush.
Apply highlighter over & after applying setting spray for the extra bling.

MISTAKE 2: NOT APPLYING EYESHADOW ON LOWER LASHLINE
We get it, not everyone can be a pro at eye shadow application. But this little mistake is what makes the difference in a look that looks finished and one that just doesn’t.
Lining your lower lashes with a shadow can create softer definition and depth, more than that can be achieved with a typical liner. The thing with eye liner also is that harsh lines underneath those pretty peepers can actually make them appear smaller, so shadow is the perfect alternative. Key is to sweep your shadow under your lower lash line, from tear duct to outer corner.
Do make sure you have the right tools. You’ll need a small shadow brush and the right shadow shades to add the perfect definition.Beauty Hooked Approved Eyeshadow Brushes:

MISTAKE 3: OVER LAYERING FACE POWDER
Face powder seems like the perfect makeup finale to lock it all up, and keep the shine at bay. But, it can also make you look aged. Believe it or not, face powder emphasizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Here is a Beauty Hooked Guide to Face Powder Application:
- A powder should be translucent or the same colour of your skin or you’ll look like you’re wearing a mask.
- For those with dry skin, choose a powder with a subtle shiny finish that will give a nice, natural glow to your complexion.
- A good powder has a lightweight, silky texture that glides smoothly on the skin and blends evenly without looking cakey nor accentuating fine lines. Make sure you test the product first for the texture before purchasing.
- Apply powder with a fluffy brush for the perfect finish
