So, you woke up late, slapped on some makeup and rushed out the door

Relax love, because it’s happened to the best of us. However, when starting over isn’t an option, make ‘damage control’ your buzzword and try these quick fixes that will erase all your mistakes and bring your makeup back to life.
However, when starting over isn’t an option, make ‘damage control’ your buzzword and try these quick fixes that will erase all your mistakes and bring your makeup back to life.
What: Blush/Bronzer Overload
The easiest thing to do is to cover it up with a foundation. Dab Innisfree Water Fit Cushion
lightly on overdone areas to instantly tone them down. Blend for a natural finish.
What: Eyeshadow Fallout
Oh the woes of sporting a sultry smoky eye! Flecks of eyeshadow settling on the under-eyes and cheeks. Counter this by simply applying a thick coat of translucent powder like the L.A Girl HD Pro Setting Powder Translucent
below eyes (before applying eye makeup). The flecks will fall onto the powder that can swiped away with a powder brush in one quick swipe.
What: Eyeliner mishaps
Quick Fix: Have a hard time drawing a perfect wing? Tackle all your liner issues by dabbing uneven bits with a wet Q-tip. You could also use a concealer with the Q-tip to camouflage uneven lines.
What: Too much mattifying powder
Quick Fix: Oily skin needs a mattifying powder to keep all that sebum at bay. But there’d a fine line between matte and cakey. If your face looks too powdery, hold a tissue over your face and spritz over it with a hydrating face mist. This will instantly moisturize skin just enough to take away that powdery finish. It’s that easy!
What: Feathered lipstick
There’s nothing more frustrating than your favorite red lippy feathering and settling outside of your natural lip line. Just grab a damp Q-tip, add a dot of Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer
and go around your lip line
to conceal the stained areas.
