Many women hold celebrities as their ultimate fashion icons, but at times these gorgeous divas can also commit some major beauty blunders. Trust us, it is not just limited to unflattering lip colours or dripping eyeliners, it is about getting back to the basics that these stars miss out on!
Therefore, before you decide to copy the look of your favourite B-town celebrity, check out how some of them have failed miserably at keeping up with their stylish persona. These are some blunders that you should choose to stay away from. Scroll down to know them and find out how you can easily avoid these disasters.
No, it is not the camera flash that is shining here! It is actually all the excess oil and grease that is making them shine. Would you ever like to get caught with such an oil-wrapped face?
Save yourself: Blotting paper or a pack of wipes will easily come to your aid, but how about avoiding this blunder altogether? Always use good quality products that suit your skin type, and wear an oil-free foundation on a layer of face primer. Better still, stick to gel-based skin care products that will take care of your overactive oil glands.
Well, they might not necessarily be hairy as Julia Roberts', but sporting underarm stubble or powdered armpits can safely be called a beauty crime when it comes to wearing sleeveless or strapless outfits.
Save yourself: Make sure, you don't find yourself in such troubled waters. Wax or shave those underarms clean before wearing a sleeveless dress. You never know who is keeping an eye on you!
Quite unfortunate for this fashion diva to be appearing here, but we couldn't help it. Her eyeshadow overload just looks messy. We wonder if she checked the mirror before stepping out! Or, maybe just decided to overdo it.
Save yourself: Always apply eyeshadow in moderation and work the brushes according to your eye shape. Also, it is important to use brushes, instead of fingers, while applying any eye makeup.
What is the first thing that you notice in these ladies? Ignore the rest of the bad makeup; just focus on the eyes. Scary, right? Well, it is quite understandable. When one teams up too much eye makeup with such light-coloured contact lenses, what else can you expect?
Save yourself: This ghostly look can easily be avoided if you avoid choosing contact lenses in colours that are too light or, do not look naturally matching with your skin tone and personality. Also, if you are naturally light-eyed, avoid too many colours in your eye makeup.
Unibrow, bushy or uneven eyebrows might look good on teenagers or kids. But, for women who wish to look their stylish best, it is best if they trim them neatly. Check these actresses above. How attractive does it look?
Save yourself: Make sure you look into the mirror and see if your eyebrows are in-line and arched the right way. We are not suggesting that you chop them off into a thin line; just make sure that they look neat and match each other.

The perfect strokes of a blush on your cheeks can do wonders for your entire look. Probably these celebrities were looking for something more than that! How else can one explain this?
Save yourself: Choose a shade that matches well with your complexion while choosing a blush. Avoid picking colours like, red, orange, etc. that might look unnatural. Also, keep the strokes to the minimum rather than going overboard.

Agreed that a few dashes of bronzer on the face, and a little highlighter on the brow bone can instantly uplift your look. But what about these beauties who look totally glazed and bronzed?
Save yourself: Remember that bronzer or highlighter is to be used to the minimum, and at times you can even skip them! They just add that extra dimension to your face. Overdoing these products can ruin the entire effort that you have put in your makeup.
So, here we're! We hope these tips will make it easier for you to avoid some common beauty mistakes. In any case, the best way to avoid any blunder is to always check yourself in the mirror before stepping out of the home.
