We all make mistakes! I find that it's best that we recognize them at some point and feel bad then to never notice them at all! Here I bring a fun post full of exaggerated photos of 'mistakes' I've made when it comes to make up! This post was inspired by Yige from Yet Another Beauty Blog and her make up mistakes post! I thought for a short while and knew that I had many mistakes I could include, hence I decided to make this part of my '10 Things' series.
For those interested, do check out my 10 Things: I wish I knew about make up as a teen and 10 Things: I Love Eating posts!

|10 Things: Beauty Mistakes I've made!|
|My bare face! Besides the one small zit starting to grow on my forehead let's see where my past make up mistakes can take me!|
2. Applying eyeshadow after mascara
Just no. Many years ago during my first years trying out make up I used to apply my eyeshadow AFTER my mascara! Causing my mascara to turn whatever color my shadow was!
3. Too much blush
|I mean I honestly haven't seen anyone walk out of house with THIS much blush on (as pictured) but I've come close on a couple occasions due to my love of a heavy handed blush application.|
4. Not knowing about an eye 'blending brush'
|Not completely my fault. I didn't even know that make up brushes existed until a friend used one in front of me! I just always used the sponge applicators and at the time I wasn't living in a country that sold much make up either (let alone brushes)!|
5. Dispensing more foundation than needed
|No. You do NOT need to dispense an entire pump at once. Just do it bit by bit which makes much more sense in every way! You don't need to worry about having too much left over, having product that will dry before you blend, layering evenly…etc|
6. Not using an eye primer
Not a big deal if your shadows are top notch quality but otherwise you'd be 10x better with any kind of eye primer or cream base to boost shadow color and lasting qualities!
7. Over plucked eyebrows
|Ouch. It seriously hurt for me to look at the few photos I do have of when I used to pluck my brows all the time. If you naturally have messy or thick brow, work with them! If you pluck too much too often they may not grow back in the future!|
8. Too much/badly applied cheek contour color
This one takes practice to get right. I used to use a contour shade that was too gray and then there was a time when the brush I used to initially apply the color would not apply evenly and be too harsh so blending out didn't really help!
9. Too light or yellow tone lip color
Unless you have gorgeous white teeth (which I don't have) try to avoid the pink toned, super flesh toned lip colors! I just look like a hooker that has bad oral hygiene! (Crest products please come to singapore!)
10. Too large/long false lashes
|Don't we all feel this way at times? Or at least in the beginning of our discovery of make up!|
YES! So I hope everyone enjoyed this post! I really thought hard about which make up mistakes to include and realized that many of the 'mistakes' I can think of were simply due to me not really understanding how to apply/use certain products. At the end of the day here are the top 10 things that I was guilty of doing! I still sometimes apply a blush color that is too deep/dark, or apply too much pressed powder because of my fear of the humidity outside!
At the end of the day whatever the mistakes you make or are trying to learn from isn't something to be upset over for long. We all do things that don't look the best in terms of beauty at times and it definitely takes more experience to know what works for us and what doesn't! Just because you suck at winged eyeliner or bronzing now, doesn't mean you're always going to be bad at it! Keep on learning and practicing!
What are beauty mistakes that you have made?
Are you still guilty of any?
