Three serious mistakes you (probably) make with your makeup base

The makeup base is a key product to achieve a good result. Your choice thus becomes fundamental. It is important to pay special attention to color, texture , finish … However, it is not the only thing to consider. Sometimes, there are mistakes that are very serious and that are made unintentionally and, even, thinking that it is the right thing because they are false myths that are widespread. Here we tell you three of those mistakes that are more common than it initially seems.


To know exactly the color of the makeup base, nothing better than to try it. And that is where one of the main mistakes is made. Many people tend to spread a small amount on the back of the hand. However, the best area to choose the correct color is that of the jaw. So you can see if, really, the chosen color blends perfectly with that of the face, thus achieving a double objective: to be favored and avoid the mask effect.


Another common mistake is to apply layers and layers of makeup, thinking that this achieves a good result, greater coverage and duration. It’s not like that. In fact, you don’t have to do it because you can only create a mask effect , in addition to clogging the pores.

It is best to always choose more fluid textures and, if more coverage is required, blur the entire makeup base very well. Do not forget that covering all imperfections is not synonymous with thick layer.

Same base

And finally, another of the most serious and common mistakes is to always use the same makeup base . It is useful to know that the skin is changing over time and is not the same young man mature skin. In addition, it does not have the same needs in winter as in summer. For example, for cold days, a lighter shade is recommended while, for summer , the choice goes through warm tones.
