Grooming and neatness are the main conditions of a beauty image that will definitely not raise questions even from the most sophisticated critics. And most often it is the non-compliance with the basic rules in makeup and care that causes oblique glances and unflattering comments from others. Together with the stylist and make-up artist Marina Gutorova, we analyze which beauty blunders can spoil the most refined image and signal bad taste.

Extended eyelashes

If nature has not rewarded you with thick and lush eyelashes, take it for granted or contact a master who will make eyelashes with a natural effect, that is, not conspicuous at the first meeting with you. The eyelashes of the “fan”, reaching to the eyebrows, speak of bad taste, cheapen the image and, as a rule, irritate men.  

Evening makeup in the afternoon

Any makeup should be tailored to the occasion so that you feel confident and appropriate. Evening makeup requires more resistant cosmetic products: for example, facial contouring is made richer, emphasizing the cheekbones, and eye makeup is performed brighter so that you look flawless under the camera flash. Using these techniques in daytime makeup, there is every chance to look vulgar.

Emphasis on the whole face

After watching enough makeup lessons on the Internet, where bloggers make themselves colored “smokies” and change the shape of their faces with the help of contouring, many girls boldly take up brushes and begin to implement all this on their own. As a result, we get a lack of smooth shadow shading, an excessively dense face tone, bright blush, lipstick coming out a centimeter from the contour of the lips. 

Such makeup can be easily seen from afar, and it scares, even if you put on a stylish suit and made a neat bun on your head. Try to match the tone to the complexion and do not use contouring techniques in daytime makeup .

A hairstyle that does not match the image

To achieve harmony of the image is simple. So that the reflection in the mirror does not cause a feeling of incompleteness, you need to make sure that the hairstyle organically complements the applied makeup. The daytime image should be as simple as possible, without complex elements. The evening should also correspond to the place you plan to visit: theater, club, restaurant. 

Overgrown eyebrows

Eyebrows without regular correction look unkempt. One of the main trends of recent years is naturalness, but do not take it too literally. Yes, natural hair color and makeup will play into your hands, but overgrown and unkempt eyebrows will scare away others. 

If you can’t give them a beautiful shape yourself, make an appointment with a specialist. It is worth going to the correction every two to three weeks, depending on the intensity of their growth. Only in this case it will be possible to make perfect eyebrows, which will not only not stand out from the image of a well-groomed girl, but will also become a beautiful accent.

Grown-up manicure

It is better to wear a natural manicure without coating than nails with cracked varnish. This nuance is especially relevant in the case of bright colors, for example, with red, since the flaws on it are very striking. 

The same is true with an overgrown manicure: you need to go to the nail service master every three weeks, otherwise unkempt nails will emphasize the slightest flaws in the hands and spoil the overall appearance.


If you don’t have time for a salon, then choose a win-win option: file your nails to one length, cover them with a clear varnish and use cuticle oil. Even if they are short, they will still look much neater and more feminine.

Too dense textures on problem skin

Even the most expensive foundation will not help to achieve the effect of “smooth skin”. Be careful with dense textures, which will only cover up redness and emphasize irregularities. Girls with skin features can be recommended to choose lighter textures in combination with professional care from specialists.
