It’s a question many women ask when they realize how much makeup they are wearing, especially when it comes to their eyes. In fact, one of the most common mistakes women with oily skin make is wearing more makeup around their eyes than they wear on their entire face.
If you want to know how much makeup is too much, keep this in mind: if you wear less eyeliner in your upper eyelid than you do in the lower lid, you have too much eyeliner on your eyes.
The same goes for the foundation. If you wear too much blush on your cheeks and not enough eye makeup in your eyes, you have too much lipstick on your face. If you wear more eye makeup in your eyes than on your eyelids, you have too much eyeliner.
If you wear more lipstick on your upper eyelid than you do in your lower eyelid, you have too much eye shadow in your upper eyelids. If you wear eyeliner and blush that is peeking through your eyelashes, you have too much mascara.
What is Considered Heavy Makeup?
For many years women have been wearing eye makeup, blush, lip makeup and mascara in order to create a more dramatic look. If you are someone who wears makeup often you probably understand the need for what is considered heavy makeup, what it does to your face and why it is so important to wear makeup that covers all of your facial features.
We all want to make our eyes appear bigger, our lips appear more defined and our eyebrows less sparse. But what is considered heavy makeup and should you wear it yourself?
In order to understand what is considered heavy makeup you need to understand what happens when you wear your makeup. When you apply eyeliner, you are applying eyeliner which is eye shadow.
When you wear makeup to your eyelashes, you are applying makeup to the ends of your eyelashes and to the tips of your lashes. When you wear mascara, the mascara wand applies makeup to the outside of your lashes and to the inside of your lashes.
How Much Makeup is Normal?
One of the most asked questions lately on blogs and question-and-answer sites all over the Internet has been, “How much makeup is normal?” I know, I’ve been asked that question a lot, and the answer to that question isn’t always what people expect. It’s not really any “normal”, really, because our natural makeup really varies depending on our skin tone, our lifestyle, and many other factors.
The good news, though, is that you don’t need to change your entire makeup routine (or even wear makeup at all) to look more natural. Here are some makeup tips for those who wear makeup everyday, but would like to reduce their dependence on makeup:
If you’re the type of woman who constantly wears eye makeup and wants to reduce your dependence on eye shadow, eye liner, and blushes, then there are a few things you can do to make yourself less dependent on makeup.
For starters, if you’re a person who tends to squint a lot when you’re reading or looking at something close up, you may want to try wearing tinted shades of eye shadow or putting dark mascara on your bottom lashes first thing in the morning so that they’re more visible.
For those who find that their eyes are red all the time, especially when they’re tired or sleepy, there are several different solutions that are said to help reduce this problem. In general, though, it’s usually best to simply wear less makeup on your face.
Is it Bad to Wear a Lot of Makeup?
Many women are not happy with the makeup they are wearing on a daily basis and wonder is it bad to wear makeup? It depends upon who you ask, and what exactly you are discussing. If you are talking about a friend or makeup artist, it would be perfectly acceptable for them to wear makeup, as long as they applied the makeup in a proper manner.
However, if you are talking about yourself, it would be completely unacceptable. The key word here is proper, and in many cases, makeup artists are trained in applying makeup correctly, so that the product they are applying does not come off amazingly.
So, what is it good to wear makeup on? Well, there are several different types of makeup, from lipstick to eye shadow and eye liner. If you wear eyeliner regularly, you may want to think about using waterproof eye shadow, instead of regular eye shadow because it will last longer without running into water or getting smeared.
In addition, eye shadow can really bring out the colors in your eyes, so if you are a redhead, wearing eye shadow is a great way to bring out your own beauty. Wearing makeup is never a bad thing; it’s just a matter of deciding when and how much to wear it.

What is a Natural Makeup Look?
There’s no denying that a woman’s beauty can be greatly enhanced with the use of cosmetics, but sometimes women want a more “natural” makeup look. Natural makeup products include eye shadow, blush, lip gloss, and mascara.
A chic way to show off a beautiful natural face without the bold colors or the heavy eye shadow, natural makeup provides a much toned down alternative for your everyday makeup or a sleek and delicate alternative for the evening dress.
Smoky eyes are a popular look for women today, and smoky eyes makeup can easily be created from your own makeup and some basic ingredients. One way to create your own smoky eyes is to apply a very dark eyeliner on the bottom and top of your eyelids before applying your eyeliner to your lower lids.
This line of smoky eye will draw attention to your eye and help it stand out, especially when you use black eyeliner to accent the dark colors under your eyelashes. You can also layer on a thin line of shimmering mascara along the top and bottom lashes to create the look.
A thick eyeliner works well with gel eyeliner because you can use two coats for maximum longevity. For a slightly smoky eye, use a black eye liner brush and fill in any “blind spots” that may exist by creating a three dimensional effect with your brush.
To define your lash line, use a bristle brush to create an outward sweeping stroke. Finish your look off with a few coats of mascara to keep your look from looking too “crowded” around your eyes.
