What: Cakey Foundation

Quick Fix: Start by spritzing a face mist like Avene Thermal Spring Water all over your face and use the Nykaa BlendMaster All-rounder Makeup Blender Sponge to blend the excess foundation. This will instantly pick up the excess product and guarantee natural coverage. Plus, it won’t make your skin feel tight and dry.

What: Blush/Bronzer Overload

Quick Fix: 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

Quick Fix: 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

Quick Fix: 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.
