6 Makeup Tricks You Need to Stop Doing

Every year there’s a number of makeup trends that emerge and become mainstream. However, just because a makeup trick is popular, it doesn’t mean it will look good on everyone.

We at LikeAble have picked 6 beauty trends that need to go away forever.

Overly intense smokey eyes

Too much of anything is good for nothing! Wearing overly heavy and intense smokey eye makeup will not only fail to make you look sexier but it will give a very unpolished and unflattering look to your eyes. In fact, such makeup can spoil your beautiful face, making it appear unnatural and aggressive.


Overdrawn lips

Plump lips have always been desirable, but it seems that lip fillers are more popular than ever. The trend of overdrawn lips was first introduced by Kylie Jenner who demonstrates a picture-perfect pout every time she appears in public. However, in most cases applying a lip liner and lip color above the natural outline of your mouth ends up being a complete fail. While you should enhance your Cupid’s bow, don’t draw far outside your mouth shape or you will start to look like a clown.


False eyelashes

Falsies are a great way to add drama and glamour to your whole makeup look, but overuse of this makeup trick can be disastrous. Unfortunately, too many women have taken this beauty enhancement to the extreme. Your everyday lashes shouldn’t look like they’re ready to take flight or are weighing down your eyelids. If you can’t go without them, be sure to pick the most natural-looking set.


Overly thick or overly thin eyebrows

A pretty pair of eyebrows is a great way to frame your face and bring out your eyes, but when they’re too thin, too dark, or too heavy they can detract more than complement. Badly shaped eyebrows not only look unnatural but can seriously ruin your face. A natural look is what most people consider attractive. So you can still shape your brows to make them look thicker or thinner, but just don’t go over the top. Try to make them look as natural as possible.


Fake tan

A perfect, healthy-looking, sun-kissed look is what most women want. But if lying on the beach for several hours is not your cup of tea, you can use fake tan. Just don’t go too dark, too brown, or too orange when it comes to your self-tanner product. Too much fake tan can result in streaks and uneven fading in color, making you look awkward and even scary.


Vamp makeup

While makeup like this may work on the runway or in fashion magazines, in real life it often looks vulgar and cheap. In fact, only a handful of women can go for it in their everyday lives. In most cases, however, burlesque, vamp styles makes ladies appear older, adding a touch of aggressiveness and harshness to their look.
