Beauty Mistakes

Hey Spring Break beauties!

I hope everyone who is on Spring Break this week is enjoying it as much as I am.  I spent the first 5 days of break completely obsessing over The Hunger Games trilogy.  Needless to say, I didn’t leave the couch much nor did I really make time to talk with all of you.  My deepest apologizes for neglecting you!  Hehe!
I was flipping through Yahoo news the other day and came across a post entitled: “Beauty mistakes that turn men off”.  Well after reading over them I decided not only do some of these beauty no-no’s turn guys off they also turn the heads of the people around you.  Here are my thoughts and opinions on a couple of the beauty mistakes listed in the article.

This is my favorite spring time scent! :)
 I cannot live without it during the
spring and summer months!
Fragrance Overload

There is nothing worse than standing next to a fellow beauty feeling as if they just walked through the fragrance department of your local Macy’s.  Misting yourself one too many times is not good at a social function nor is it good at the office.  Remember if you are wearing a strong perfume hit your wrist once rubbing the scent onto the other one.  If you are dealing with a fragrance that is not as strong go ahead and mist your one wrist and one finger and then apply it behind your earlobes. 
Quick tip:  Applying a fragrance behind your earlobes will help the scent stay longer.  Think about it for a second.  During the day you are constantly washing your hands.  While washing away germs you are also washing away the beautiful scent you paid so much money for.  Try this application method and see if it helps your perfume last longer. 

Caked-on Foundation

Adding more and more foundation on top of already blended in foundation creates the caked-on look.  If you are trying to create an “extra coverage” foundation there are other ways to help hide blemishes.  Try using a concealer either before or after applying foundation.  Also, when you are applying foundation use a makeup sponge or a brush to avoid the “cake-iness”.  A sponge or a brush will help you get even coverage and will also help you blend out your color better.  Using an applicator will also help you to take action against blemishes.  Don’t touch your face while your applying your makeup…don’t even think about it! :)
