Celebrities usually look stunning. But after all, they are human, so there are times when they aren’t totally red carpet ready. Here are some common celebrity beauty blunders to avoid.
The white-out: The white-out occurs when a celebrity (or more likely, the celebrity’s makeup artist) douses on a little too much powder, giving the appearance of white blotches on the face. Some high definition or mineral makeups will look fine in real time but then give a ghostly appearance when the cameras flash (which is what we all see).
Who’s done it? Nicole Kidman, Miley Cyrus, even Angelina Jolie
Too much makeup: Neither your face nor your lips should crack when you smile. Make sure not to lay any makeup product on too thick.
Who’s done it? Zendaya, Lena Dunham, Sarah Hyland
Beaucoup bronzer: When they lay pile too much tanner, red carpet celebrities end up looking more like statues themselves than the Oscars or other awards they are hoping to win.
Who’s done it? Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, even Nicki Minaj
The two-tone: When the body is tan but the face is not, it gives a mismatched effect. Even those who self-tan evenly are bound to get this look, since the face gets washed and exfoliated more often than the body does. Applying a little bronzer to the face can help even things out.
Who’s done it? Jennifer Anniston, Kylie Jenner, Demi Lovato
The reverse racoon: It’s one of the most common celebrity makeup mistakes—too much concealer around the eyes leads to an obvious white ring. To avoid it, choose a concealer that is no more than one shade lighter than your foundation and don’t lay it on too thick.
Who’s done it? Donald Trump, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow
Going goth: Celebs may wear deep colors on their lips to look more dramatic. But too-dark lipstick thins the lips and makes the wearer appear older. Sheer nude, rose, and coral colors instead make lips look fuller, taking years away.
Who’s done it? Emma Stone, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry
Too bold: With so many celebrities walking the red carpet, of course it can be tempting for them to do something different to stand out. But out-there choices like mustard yellow eyeshadow (think Drew Barrymore at the Charlie’s Angels photo call) or wild runway-like purple lips can take it too far. Remember, you can never go wrong with understated, tasteful shades.
Who’s done it? Cara Delevingne, Giuliana Rancic, Taylor Swift
Over plucking: Far too many celebs make this mistake. Tweeze away too much of your brow and you will instantly add years. Thick yet well-groomed eyebrows create an instant facelift and help your eyes appear more open.
Who’s done it? Megan Fox, Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie
