Top 8 Makeup Mistakes Beginners Make ...


If you’re just beginning to dabble in makeup, you’re highly encouraged to experiment and have fun but there are some makeup mistakes beginners make that you want to know about and avoid.

Your makeup should be reflection of your personal taste while enhancing your natural beauty, not covering them up or disguising your features with tons of makeup.

So whether you’re new to the makeup game or just want to avoid looking like an amateur, keep on reading for info on these avoidable mistakes!

1. Not Properly Caring for Skin

A very common amateur beauty mistake is that many makeup newbies are so focused on the makeup itself that they overlook the foundation of looking good and looking your best which is having good skin!

Treat blemishes, cleanse and moisturize your skin regularly and consider seeing a dermatologist for stubborn skincare issues.2

Correctly caring for your skin should supersede any makeup tips because having healthy skin is paramount to any makeup!

2. Over-warming Your Complexion

I’ve watched some beauty tutorials online or on TV and attempted to replicate a look before but if not done with care, it’s another one of the big makeup mistakes beginners make.

I’ve seen makeup artists “warming up” a woman’s face by strategically applying blush to various areas of the face and it looks pretty good but applying blush on your cheeks, bridge of nose, chin and forehead can be a bit much if not done correctly and with a light hand so always go light and add more if necessary!

3. Using Concealer like Foundation

We might think we have lots of problem areas that need concealing but when we start covering the majority of our face with it, it’s an amateur beauty mistake that we need to avoid at all costs!

Concealer can make the difference between uneven skin or blemishes taking center stage over our intelligence or dazzling personality but you know what they say about too much of a good thing!

Use concealer sparingly and cautiously because applying too much or using it in too many places leads to a crepey, pale complexion that looks caked-on.

There are so many different tools for different beauty issues so don’t rely solely on concealer!
