In the world of Instagram and you tube we see it all, from weird new ways to apply foundation to actual techniques that look down right tacky, makeup is fun but when do we draw the line? IN 2018!! These are my top picks for makeup trends that need to be left in 2018
1. Layers upon layers upon layers of foundation.
The more foundation you use, the more texture you're adding to your face, this is not a good look, especially if your foundation is too light or too dark! Embrace the natural look
2. Colour correction on places that don't need correction.
I see it all the time, a tutorial of a girl putting green, lavender, orange concealers all over her face and then slapping on foundation over it. The truth is, most of us don't need colour correction as foundations and concealers have them in the formula already, you only need to correct when the problem is very bad.
3.Weird overly dark, overly drawn on brows
Again, embrace your natural shape, theres nothing wrong with filling in your brows but sticking to your natural brow colour and shape is best. Theres no need to over draw and then erase and carve it all away with concealers!
4. The big round highlight on the tip of the nose
The idea of highlighting is to bring forward your best features or to bring attention to specific areas. A light dusting on the tip can look good on certain nose types but for most people this is not an area you want to draw attention to, extreme highlighting in general needs to end but the tip of the nose thing is the worst culprit!
5. Sharp contouring and sharp "baking"
Okay, we've all seen it, people using weird objects to create that harsh contour line and then dragging a sponge dipped in setting powder right underneath that already sharp line. It just looks messy and unblended and gives off a very un natural appearance
6. Over glossed lips
It just looks sticky and drippy! A little goes a long way
