11 Makeup Mistakes You Don't Realize You're Making
How do we know? Because we were making them too -- until we got this advice
Mistake No. 10: Wearing glitter"The thing that bothers me the most about glitter in makeup, besides the fact that it shouldn't be worn by anyone over the age of 14 (fabulous club kids get an exception here), is that it travels on your face, leaving strange sparkly spots where they shouldn't be,” Patel says. Instead of chunky glitter, she recommends shadows with finely milled shimmer -- used sparingly, of course.
We confess: "I got super into glitter in junior high when I discovered Tony & Tina, this fabulous line that specialized in glitter-packed makeup," says assistant editor Sharon. "While their products were amazing (sadly discontinued), I unfortunately used glitter on more than one area at a time. So ... glittery eyeshadow, glittery eyeliner, sparkly blush, and glitter-infused lip gloss. Yowza. In hindsight I probably looked like I got into a fight with a tub of glitter -- and lost."
