Makeup is an essential part of every woman's life. After all, it makes you look beautiful, it boosts your confidence and adds to your personality. If you too love makeup, you never want to make a mistake as it will spoil your entire look. Here, we had a makeup session with makeup artist Ruchika Bhatia who shared some common mistakes women make while doing their makeup. Here are the Dos and Donts:


A lot of women pick the wrong foundation shade and that is one of the biggest mistakes they can make. You need to pick the right foundation shade for your skin so that it blends well with your skin colour and doesn't give your skin a grey tone. It is very important that you blend your foundation well with your finger tips. If you don't blend it well then your face will start looking patchy. 


Compact is another common essential when it comes to your makeup. Make sure you don't pick a very light shade that doesn't go with your skin shade. 


Do you apply a blush using your fingertips? Your blush may not blend well on your cheeks when you don't use a brush. Make sure you use a brush. Take some blush and place on your cheek, now swipe it on your cheekbone for a rosy look. 


We can't imagine our makeup kit without a good highlighter. But applying it on your face is a little tricky. Make sure you just apply it on the high points of your face, your cheekbones, bridge of the nose. 


Whenever doing your eyebrows, make sure you don't take too much colour to fill in the gaps. 


While using your eyeliner, make sure you start from the inner corner of your eye and take it to the outer corner to create an even line.
