Using Way too Much Concealer.
Sometimes we are trying to create a perfect look and we are overloading our face with makeup. One of the most common mistakes is when we try to create a matte effect is too use too much concealer.

Using Excessive Mascara on the Lower Lashes.
A touch of mascara on your lower lashes can accentuate the edges of your eyes and give you more expressiveness. You should be careful not to exaggerate, as too much mascara on the lower lashes will accentuate the wrinkles around your eyes no matter how small they are.

Failing to Remember to Color Your Lip Lines.
The lip liner is important as well when you want to create perfect makeup. The lip liner will make your outline more defined and more appealing. If you want to make your lips look fuller, you should overdraw the natural lip borders. If you don’t want to end up with a ʺmustacheʺ, always shade the liner in the direction of the center of lips.
