In the quest to improve our beauty with select methods, sometimes we might go a little more over-the-top than subtle. It’s easy to do. Not only is the beauty industry awash with new products that promise to give you lips like X or eyebrows like Y, but sometimes our busy schedules prevent us from applying them in the correct ways, or learning how to do them correctly at all.

If this sounds like you, it’s wise to take a few moments to assess your beauty routine and identify common mistakes that we all make during some point of our lives. After you’ve identified what the issues are, this post will help you find the best remedies, so you can look fabulous more hours of the day and worry for fewer hours of the day.


Too Much Makeup

In the bid to look fantastic, it’s tempting to place too much emphasis on certain types of makeup. Too much foundation is a common example. You don’t need to look orange or fully beige to best help your skin look flawless, instead applying a light coating and a little more of a blended concentrated amount on ‘problem’ areas is all you need. Subtlety is usually more in makeup and will prevent the surprise of people who know you when they catch you on a no-makeup day.


Mistaken Tattoos

During that summer fling, it might have been tempting to get your lover’s name tattooed on your shoulder, but you might not have seen him (or her) in 18 months and deeply regret getting it done. You needn’t have such a comical story to regret tattoo’s you had done during your youth. It’s uncommon for someone to be fully in love with their tattoo’s for the whole course of their life. If you’re looking to solve the error finally then getting it removed might be the best option.

When choosing a service, be sure to look for the laser tattoo removal before and after pictures to assess if you’re happy with what the result will be. You’re likely to have a subtle red mark there while it heals in the future, so keep that in mind. This could be much more preferable for you depending on your situation though. Don’t be worried about those responsible for removing your tattoo laughing at it, they’ve surely seen it all.


Burning Hair With Straightening Irons

This is a very common mistake to make, especially if our morning routine is hurried and you have other things to do when using your straighteners. When curling, it might be difficult to judge how long to keep it on, because all hair has different tensile strengths and durability. If you happen to burn your hair, immediately turn off the straighteners and hydrate the hair with a conditioner or using a hair oil to help remedy. You can even use olive oil or coconut oil if need be.

This will immediately help you smooth out the damage and mitigate the effects of the burn. If the issue is still pronounced, unfortunately, you should consider a haircut that rectifies the problem. It can happen to the best of us, and the hair will grow back, so don’t be disheartened.


Overall, looking great is feeling great. With these tips, you should be well on your way to achieving your best look, and prevent those costly beauty errors you’ve made from returning in future.
