7. Too Much GlitterProblem: "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," says Stiles.
Solution: If you have a sparkly personality and must express it through your makeup, a more grown-up option would be to ditch shadows that contain large flecks of in-your-face glitter for those with very, very finely milled luminescence or shimmer (like L'Oreal HiP Shocking Shadow Pigments, $12). And always apply with a restrained hand. (See mistake No. 9 for how-to.)
