Top 10 Makeup Felonies
No one is innocent, not even Paris Hilton. Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles tells which beauty crimes to avoid
9. Too Much IlluminationProblem: "Luminous particles have been added to everything in the past few years, most notably foundations, powders and highlighting products," says Stiles. "One or two [such] products can make a woman look fresh and glowing. Too many can make her look very, very strange." You run the risk of your face texture not matching that of your body.
Solution: There are a few places where luminizing products work: the cheekbones, the inside corners of the eye, and if the products are subtle enough, under the eye. (Concealers like YSL Touche Eclat, $40, that have a hint of luminescence can really combat dark circles.) Avoid using a luminous foundation with a shimmer powder on your cheekbones and a very shimmery eye shadow. "What looks good in magazines doesn't always translate well to real life, so approach with a restrained hand," says Stiles.
