Neglecting the neck

How many times do you cringe when you see girls walking around with a visible foundation line? This happens because girls commonly put foundation only on their face and do not blend the colour down on to their neck. Try to avoid this beauty blunder.

“To blend it onto your neck, use a foundation brush to make sure the foundation sticks firmly to your skin so as it doesn’t rub onto your clothes”

To create a nice contour effect use a blusher brush to create a shadow under and around the sides of your jawline with a bronzer or shimmer powder, as this will give you a more chiselled jawline.

Endless eyebrow plucking

Eyebrows are a very important feature in the beauty world; they frame your eyes and ultimately emphasise your face shape. More attention has been drawn to them most recently after the rising of the supermodel Cara Delevinge in the media, who is famous for her dark, thick brows. All faces suit different brow shapes; an elongated face should have brows with a higher arch whereas a wider face should stick to having more horizontal brows, both aiming to draw attention to the bone structure in the face. However over-plucking your brows can cause this effect to be lost. Whilst there may be eyebrow pencils around to draw on your eyebrows, this does not look nearly as good as having the original hair there. If you’ve been over-plucking your eyebrows recently and are worried that you’ll never regain the original hair, don’t worry! There are many products on the beauty market which stimulate hair growth, meaning your original hair will grow back in no time, or even if you want more hair to grow to make your brows a bit thicker. I recommend the RejuvaLash serum for this, which can also be additionally used to stimulate eyelash growth.

Tan traumas

Girls often like using fake tan to create that nice sun kissed glow which every girl wants from a holiday abroad, but there is a right and a wrong way to go about applying it. If not enough layers are applied to the skin and are not spread out evenly, a patchy effect is created and it will become obvious to people who see it that the tan is not natural. After applying the amount of tan layers you want, depending on how dark you want to look (at least two coats is advisable).

“Check for any streak marks whilst the tan is still wet”

Then get yourself some tan wipes (a good brand is the Soltan range sold in boots) and wipe out any of these marks to even out the tanning colour.
