3 Beauty Trends Makeup Artists Really Hate

We’ve all been there. You’re in the middle of your makeup routine, feeling good about your winged eyeliner or smoky eye, when you realize you’ve done something wrong. Maybe you went too heavy on the bronzer, or maybe your lipstick is just a little too bright. But don’t worry – we’ve all been there.
What you might not know is that there are some beauty trends that makeup artists really hate. They may not tell you to your face, but trust us – they definitely notice. Here are 10 beauty trends that makeup artists really can’t stand:
1. Overdone brows
Warning: We may have gone to the crazy place with the thick brow trend. “Brows are meant to frame the eyes and pull a makeup look together, not dominate or take over the entire face,” says makeup artist Sarah Rillon. “I think people went a little overboard with the whole ‘Instagram brow’ thing and now it’s just too much.” If you want to keep your brows looking natural, Rillon recommends using a pencil or powder that matches your hair color, and filling in any sparse areas with light strokes.

2. Cakey foundation
There’s nothing worse than seeing a beautiful face covered in a thick layer of foundation – it just looks so unnatural. “Less is definitely more when it comes to foundation,” says Rillon. “You should only be using enough to even out your skin tone and cover any blemishes – anything more than that is just going to look cakey and overdone.” To avoid this cakey look, Rillon recommends using a damp Beautyblender sponge to apply your foundation, and build up coverage gradually until you achieve the desired effect.

3. Visible lip liner

Lip liner can be a great way to define your lips and make them look fuller, but only if it’s used correctly. “One of the biggest mistakes people make with lip liner is using one that’s too dark,” says makeup artist Jenny Patinkin . “Your lip liner should always be one shade lighter than your lipstick.” Another mistake people make is not blending their lip liner enough – if you can see where your lip liner starts and stops, it’s time to grab a brush and blend it out .
