For ladies especially applying make-up or using beauty items and more should be in place to enhance the defined features, making ladies more beautiful, attractive, decent , kick years off our real ages and more but sometimes we make simple mistakes that end up counterproductive... To avoid adding on unflattering years to our ages, check out these mistakes to avoid...

Mistake #1: Eyeliner Technique

A makeup artist once told us that harsh, thick eyeliner will age you like none other, especially if you only apply it to your bottom lash line. Think about it this way: Why would you want to add more shadow to that already-annoying area?

Mistake #2: You’re Using the Wrong Foundation

The two biggest foundation mistakes? Not choosing the right color, and not blending.

Mistake #3: Your Hair Color Is Flat

Time for a wakeup call: Your lazy attitude towards maintaining your hair color is aging you. Dull, flat, one-dimensional hair color can make you look older, and according to this study, healthy (as in, shiny, bouncy, glossy) hair signifies health and fertility

Mistake #4: You’re Not Using Primer

If fine lines are the bane of your existence, allow us to introduce you to your new best friend: primer. Most primers are made with plumping ingredients that fill in your wrinkles and provide a smooth, airbrushed canvas for your foundation.

If you’re plagued by dark circles and under-eye bags, don’t just pile on the concealer with abandon; over-applying can cause it to cake under your eye and draw more attention to problem spots. Instead, try using a primer with brightening, smoothing ingredients first, then applying a thin layer of concealer with a brush.

Mistake #5 : Glittery Blush

Blush is supposed to look like a natural, youthful flush, so don’t overdo things by choosing a too-bright color or glittery finish. A soft cream blush.
