It never fails. You’re running behind again. You have to make it out the door in 10 minutes and notice your makeup is messed up.
But, is there really a way to fix them without having to start over?
Absolutely! And today, I’m going to share the top 5 mineral makeup problems solved!
Problem 1- Instead of looking flawless, you look like a hot powdery mess!
Solution: This one is probably the easiest problem solved! Powder loves to hang out around your nose, brows and hairline. With a large powder brush, swipe all around the face
(especially these areas) to pick up the excess powder.
Problem 2- Your foundation shade doesn’t look “right” anymore.
Solution: This usually happens during the change of seasons when you don’t get as much sun, or when your lifestyle keeps you indoors more than out. Consider keeping 2 foundation shades handy one being slightly darker in shade than the other.
Problem 3- There’s more eye shadow on your face than on your eyes!
Solution: Shadow “fall out” happens when you apply a little too much eye shadow or when you quickly swipe your eyelids with your brush. Matte shadows are hard enough to remove, and if you’re using a shimmer shadow, forget about it! Consider applying your shadow before instead of after you apply your foundation and face color.
Doing this will make it easier for the shadow to be removed without ruining the rest of your makeup. Also, when applying shadow, try “pressing” it on your lids instead of applying with a shadow brush.
Problem 4- You notice a mascara smudge after you finish applying your makeup.
Solution: Mascara tends to dry rather quickly, so be sure to keep q-tip handy when applying your makeup. Slightly dampen the tip and squeeze on it to remove excess water. Gently dab the q-tip over your mascara mistake until it disappears, then using the dry end of the tip, pat dry. You’ll want to make sure you press lightly to prevent from removing the rest of your makeup underneath your boo-boo.
Problem 5- You pressed too hard when trying to remove a mascara smudge, and now you’ve removed the makeup underneath too.
Solution: All may not be lost. You can do this. It’s not a quick fix, but it’s quicker than starting all over. Be sure the area is completely dry. Lightly dab your foundation over the area and carefully blend with your ring or pinky finger. (If you used concealer under your foundation, begin with that first). Let dry if using cream or liquid foundation, then use a clean, small brush and lightly swipe the area with your High Definition or Finishing Veil.
