Are you Making These Make-Up Mistakes? Well, We've Got Your Back!

From bad brows to ewww eyes, YouTuber Gigi Gorgeous (star of ‘Help! My Face Is F*cked!” on Kylie Jenner’s app) has your back. 



1. My cat-eye is completely crooked.

Fix: Even out your line with a pointy cotton swab dipped in oil-free remover, which won’t smudge the rest of your make-up. Gigi’s secret weapon: this micellar water by Bioderma.

- Bioderma Sensibio H2O,  Rs. 599


2. I  overfilled my brows. Now, they’re more freaky than fleeky.

Fix: Brush hairs upwards with a clean spoolie (or a clean mascara wand) to diffuse, says Gigi. The bristles grip onto and remove excess product. You can also use a small, angled brush, dipped in creamy concealer (peep her fave by M·A·C) to polish the edges. Bodyography’s dual-ended tool offers both brushes.

3. I have VFL (visible foundation line).

Fix: Whether your foundation is a shade off or it oxidised post--application (very common), a damp beauty blender is your friend, says Gigi. “Blend the line with the round side, focusing on the perimeter of your face.”

- Sephora Beautyblender, Rs. 1,400


4. I sneezed while applying mascara.

Fix: Removing wet mascara marks can create a bigger mess, so “first and foremost, wait five minutes for it to dry,” says Gigi. Then wipe it with a clean cotton swab or make-up remover tool (Givenchy’s has a precise marker-like tip).

5. I overstrobed and look like a disco ball.

Fix: Just contour, says Gigi. Sweep bronzer on cheekbones to dull the shine.

- M·A·C Contour Kit, Rs. 3,100


6. I applied way too much blush.

Fix- To tone down the redness without redoing your whole face, “swirl powder foundation on cheeks with a fluffy brush,” says Gigi.
