The 4 most common beauty mishaps and how to avoid them

Asia's Tech News Daily

Celebrities are no strangers to the odd beauty mishap, especially when in the glare of unforgiving camera lights. Actress Angelina Jolie was the latest to come under scrutiny when she appeared at the premiere of the brand new Marvel epic The Eternals on Sunday.

Though radiant as ever, dressed in a striking metal mesh Atelier Versace column gown, images of the the 46-year-old soon sent social media and news headlines into a spin over what appeared to be a hair extension malfunction.

Choppy, uneven and visibly unblended with her natural brunette tresses, Jolie's attempt to sport the trend for XXL hair (à la Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala or Dua Lipa during her runway debut at Versace’s Spring/Summer 2022 show last month), demonstrated that making a style statement has its risks.

It's the reason why celebrity hair stylist Luke Hersheson recommends that any dramatic changes to hair length with extensions should always be carried out professionally. “When people tend to use extensions for length, it's much harder to make them look believable, rather than when you use them for thickness,” he says. “If using extensions for length, you have to make sure that your hair is not cut sharp and blunt at the ends, as it becomes very hard to blend your natural hair with extensions. You'll also need a lot of hair, which can lead to hair looking too thick, which doesn't look believable either.”

From hair extensions to fake tan blunders, these are four of the most common beauty mishaps, and how to avoid them.

Hair extensions

Uber-long locks are certainly in vogue and if you're looking to join the XXL hair tribe for the first time, clip-ins are always a safe and easy bet.

Hair expert at Milk + Blush Nicole Petty notes, firstly, straight hair can often make your blunt ends more noticeable when wearing extensions, so it’s important to add texture to your hair by styling it into waves or curls for a seamless blend.

However, if a straighter look like Jolie's is what you're after, it’s always a good idea to take your extensions to your stylist so that they can cut them in with your own hair. “Getting the extensions layered will help to graduate the hair so that there isn’t so much of a harsh line between your natural hair and the extensions,” says Petty.

Next, remember that thicker extensions will make it easier to hide any disconnect from your real hair, especially if your hair is closer to shoulder length than the ends of the extensions. You can do this by layering wefts (clips found on extensions), but use no more than two wefts per layer of your natural hair. Stacking wefts in this way will remove a bulk of your hairs' bluntness whilst creating more volume.

Finally, Petty recommends clipping in extensions at an angle. “Clip your wefts at an angle to create a graduated effect with your extensions. This will soften up your look, making the extensions appear much more natural.”

Face powder

It's hard to forget actress Nicole Kidman's face powder mishap in 2009. While the trend for 'baking' – that's setting concealer with a generous helping of loose face powder under the eyes for a few minutes – has been popularised in recent years thanks to Kim Kardashian and her go-to make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic, Kidman appeared to have forgotten to blend.

The trick to getting it right is to use a puff to apply a loose powder that is translucent or in a shade that is very close to your natural skin tone. Then, be weary of not letting the powder sit for too long, just enough time to allow the heat of your body temperature to set your make-up. Finally, use a fluffy brush to remove any excess powder that might be remaining.

Fake tan

Streaks, muddy elbows, stains all over your hands or getting the shade entirely wrong are all familiar grounds when navigating the self-tan world, and the journey is no different for those in the public eye – just ask Donald Trump whose tanning mishaps managed to be one of the many grooming focal points of his presidency.

To achieve a flawless glow, tanning expert Jules Von Hep says, “When tanning the body, moisturise your hands, elbows, knees and feet before and after application, but don’t moisturise the rest of your body. While applying, start from the ankles and work your way up, massaging the skin as you go, if you’re using a mitt or brush sweep in lengthways motions, never circular as the pressure is more even.

“After application, it’s time to buff and blend. Using a kabuki brush, sweep lightly over hairline, décolletage, wrists, knuckles, knees, elbows, feet and ankles. Take some Bioderma and an old face cloth and remove any tan residue from palms, soles, nails and in between fingers.”

Dry shampoo

For many of us, by day three post-wash, dry shampoo is a saving grace. That's not to say it can be relied on blindly.

Kate Moss was mistakenly credited for starting a new trend for going grey after she appeared at the 'Kate Moss for Longchamp' collection launch cocktail party at the Ritz Club in 2010. Her hair colourist Nicola Clarke revealed to us that what appears to be flashes of grey was in fact dry shampoo that was illuminated under the red carpet lights. Designed to refresh roots and provide a volume boost to lacklustre locks, dry shampoos can often leave a white powdery residue that mimics silver streaks if not brushed through thoroughly.

When using a dry shampoo, always shake the bottle well and spray from a distance, then give your roots a shake with your fingers to diffuse the product evenly around the hairline.
