How to Fix Makeup Disasters

Do you strive for a makeup that looks natural and flawless without looking “made up”?  Glossy magazines photos display beauties with just the right look. Cosmetic commercials tell how easy it is to enjoy that natural glow if you use their products.  Most over-the-counter foundations leave you with makeup disasters, instead.

Makeup Disasters

  • Matches skin tone when first applied turns orange later
  • Matches your skin tone in artificial lighting, but not in natural light
  • Does not conceal small imperfections
  • Cannot cover issues such as port wine birthmarks
  • Does not match darker skin tones
  • Does not match uneven skin tones
  • Clogs the pores
  • Results in oily skin
  • Appears thick, cakey, and overly made up
  • Calls attention to fine lines and wrinkles
  • Requires continuous touchups during the day

Possible Culprits May Be Additives

Additives used in premixed foundations may be the monster hiding in the close. Some additives are damaging to your skin and even harmful to your health. Additionally, your skin type may not be compatible with ingredients in many makeup formulas.


Many different OILS are used in many cosmetics. These can clog the pores, cause blackheads and thus contribute to acne. Besides this adds to problems if your skin is oily. Oily skin can also cause foundations to oxidize and turn orange after a few hours.


TALC may be added for better coverage. It is commonly found in powder makeup and bronzers. It may clog your pores. Because this mineral has rough edges it may cause microscopic tears to Sensitive Skin.

Furthermore, talc is very dehydrating to the skin. If you are prone to Dry Skin, this can cause your makeup to look dry, cakey, chalky, and even lay in the wrinkle lines. It can actually make your skin appear older. Who wants that?

Comedogenic Cosmetics

This is a term that covers many additives you may find in cosmetics. It simply means, “It clogs the pores”. The answer to this disaster is to look for the term “Non-Comedogenic” listed as an attribute of any cosmetics you purchase.


Read your cosmetic product label for the most common parabens: butylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben. These are used as preservatives to prolong the shelf life of the product. It prevents harmful agents from growing in the product. Therefore, it must be a very good thing. Right?

Yes and no. Preservation is good for the product but can be bad for you. Studies have shown that parabens enter the body through the skin and remain there in the tissues. Questions have arisen about whether or not this may lead to breast cancer. For more shocking details read this article from Elle, Parabens Explained – What are Parabens?
