Using a dark color in the inner eye corner.
Although it's tempting to use a deep, rich shade to emphasize your eyes, make sure it isn't too intense.
You want to create drama, not give yourself raccoon eyes!
Not blending the colors properly.
When applying eyeshadow, don't forget to blend everything —this is especially important around the creases of your eyes as this is where we tend to look the most aged when done wrong!
Leaving the lower lashline bare.
This is a common mistake for beginners, and it can make you look tired or sickly without even realizing it's happening! The easiest way to avoid this is by using mascara on the lower lashes.
We know - the very idea is anxiety inducing.
Make sure you use a mascara shade that blends in with the color of your lashes. Try brown or navy instead of black. Brown and navy settle into a hue that doesn’t feel over the top or needlessly accentuated. It’s just the right definition.
Invest in a formula that is long stay, hydrating and clump free. What’s worse than a bare lash line? One that’s trying too hard with make-up not designed to apply flawlessly.
