Top 10 Celebrity Makeup Mistakes
By Shruti Goenka
Being in the public eye can be stressful and put you under constant scrutiny. Hence, it is very important for celebrities to wear the right make up and not make any major make up bloopers.
However, that is not always the case as you can see from the list given below. This article will list the top ten celebrity make up mistakes, and will also tell you how to avoid them and correct them!
This article lists the top ten homemade celebrity makeup mistakes:
1. Mismatched Foundation: Demi Lovato
Foundation helps the skin in contouring, adds texture to the skin and highlights the right features. Mismatched foundation can be very prominent and apart from looking bad, it gives the skin a much made up look. It is always wise to choose a foundation that is of your skin tone, instead as in the picture here, where Demi Lovato has chosen a foundation two shades paler than her skin tone. When a foundation is a shade lighter, it becomes very prominent. You must refine the shade with a powder blush and deepen the color of the cheekbones and the forehead to add warmth to the face. Taking a damp sponge and pressing it onto the skin without wiping helps revitalize the natural shade of the skin.
2. Clumpy Eyelashes: Kim Kardashian
Clumpy eyelashes look fake and unattractive. It is important to only apply two coats of mascara and not use a lash thickener. A milder cosmetic that builds up the lashes is preferable. If you want to straighten out clumpy lashes, it can be fixed by using a spiral brush and gently combing the lashes.
3. Obvious Lip Liner Fail: Rebecca Romijn
Clown mouths are caused by obvious lip liner that can be seen outside the lip color. It makes the mouth look artificially drawn on and unattractive. It is important to pick a color of the lip pencil that is the same as the natural color of the lips and outline it with that. This will keep the gloss looking natural and the lip color concealed.
4. Streaky Blush:
Check the bristles of the blush brush to make sure it is voluminous and the hairs have not separated or become damp. Apply a toner, or a moisturizer followed by a foundation and let it get soaked by the skin before applying blush. Keep your blush brush clean always. The blush in the compact should be the same shade all over.
5. Using Too Much Eye Shadow: Eva Longoria
It is important to make sure that the eye shadow you are using during the daytime is not too dark or overpowering. To fix this, take a cotton bud dipped in moisturizer or a makeup removing tissue and swipe off the excess eye shadow. Then follow it up by dabbing a little foundation of the same color as your skin tone to calm down the shade of the eye shadow.
6. Melting Lip Gloss:
Melting Lip Gloss
Glossy pouts and luscious lips look kissable but putting on too much lip gloss can cause it to get a goopy and melting look that looks unattractive. It is best to apply a layer of lip balm, follow it up with a neutral lip stick and then add the lip gloss to make it stay and not give it the unattractive melting look.
7. Over plucked eyebrows: Nicole Scherzinger
Too much tweezing can give the eyebrows an over plucked look. To fix this, take an eye shadow shade that is matte and two shades paler than the natural eyebrow hair color, and outline the brow shape you want. Eyebrows can also be filled in with a pencil but make sure it doesn’t get smudged.
8. Smudged Eyeliner:
If your eye lids are warm and prone to watering or sweating, it is best to use a shadow base before applying eye liner. The smudgy eye liner can also be turned into a smoky eye look by just adding the right amount of dark eye shadow. Make sure the eye shadow is the same shade as the eye liner you have used.
9. Flaky lipstick: Evan Rachel Woods

This is caused by dry and flaky lips that are not well-moisturized. To fix this, apply a generous coat of petroleum jelly or lip balm to even out the lips.
10. Prominent Concealer: Kelly Osbourne
This can be easily fixed by using a moisturizing cream that will even out the skin tone and give it a beige smoothness.
These make up tricks will help you know what mistakes have been made by celebrities so that you do not repeat the same again.
