Top 7 Makeup Mistakes That Makes You Look Older
1. Using Lighter Shade
There are still people believing the myth of being too fair means beautiful. When you are using a shade way too lighter than your skin tone, it is going to make you look ashy or grey. Many women around the world is doing this mistake, I have done this on some point in my life too. Every skin type is beautiful, come on don’t tell me you don’t love Beyonce and Priyanka Chopra.
