5 Makeup Mistakes Black Women Should Avoid

Are you putting your best face forward, or are you making these 5 makeup mistakes? Check it out!

mkp11. Heavy Metal on the Eyelids

If you’re 40 and under, wear the gold and silver as much as you like. If your eyelids begin to lose elasticity, the glittery shades will magnify the creases. The result is that the glitter will settle in the creases and will age your eyes, instead of enhance them.

mkp22. Heavy Eyeliner on the bottom lid. You want the dramatic eye effect, and nothing brings out your brown eyes like that kohl black liner on the bottom, right? Wrong. Heavy liner on the bottom lid will drag down the eye and makes you appear tired. You want uplift, so apply the eyeliner to the top lid, and outer corner of the eye.

mkp33. Bald browsAre you a nice person, but your over-plucked eyebrows make you appear angry? “Your eyebrows are 75 percent of your face,” says Atlanta beauty expert Shalawn of Lamik Beauty. “I suggest the Lamik Brow Brush, a flat angled brush to define the brows, Purdy Brow Define Powder, and brightening crème to give them a fresh look.”

mkp44. Spider EyelashesUnless it’s Halloween, do not keep your fake lashes long after they’ve crinkled or curled in unnatural ways. Sure, we know that you were promised the lashes would last a month, but if your mirror says otherwise, please remove them.

mkp55. Layering your foundation“Adding extra layers of foundation will only make your skin problems more apparent, according to experts. A great look begins with great skin,” says Chicago celebrity makeup artist Shoenice.
