Someone’s got to say it, so I decided to take this duty upon myself. Desi girls everywhere, not just in India, I’m speaking directly to you. Read these 5 mistakes carefully and if you’re making any of them … please stop now. Okay, thanks. I’m going to get straight to it then. Also, before people start with the mean comments, I only wish you well. We don’t want nobody to call us ratchet behind our backs, do we?

1) Do The Bold Lips, But Do It Right.

Many a times I see desi girls attempting a bold lip, the red lip being the most popular (favorite shade – MAC’s Ruby Woo, duh). But please check and double check if you’ve spread out your lipstick evenly. You can skip the lip liner, but that doesn’t mean the color doesn’t have to reach every corner and ridge, because it does! Make sure the lipstick goes all the way in, so you don’t look like you have two-toned lips every time you open your mouth. Check out some of these tricks to keep your lipstick from budging all day.

2) “I Only Wear Kajal.”

No, no, no, no, no. Unless you’re opting for a ‘I want to look like a zombie’ look, don’t do the just kohl look. If you’re a kohl fan, don’t forget to add some mascara and seal in your kohl with these tricks. I would also recommend you do your brows. Don’t worry, got a guide for that too. The trick is to draw attention to your eyes the right way! Concentrating too much on kohl can take away from the shape and beauty of your eyes.

3) Super Bold Eyeshadow In The Day

Oh god. Unless you’re Tinker Bell (no, not the dog), Lady Gaga, or attempting some sort of fancy dress up, please don’t overdo your eyeshadow in the day. Stick to neutrals and make sure you aren’t walking around with crazy blue eyes.

4) Super White Foundation

It’s 2014. Can we all get over the Fairness syndrome. There’s no way you’re going to look good trying to look like someone else, so embrace your skin and color because we don’t want to look grey. Yes, that’s how you look after a certain point when you wear foundation that’s a couple of shades too light.

5) 90’s Lip Liner

Girlfriends, the 90’s are OVER and thank god! Remember that black lip liner trend? That was ew. I’m sure you’re not doing the black lip liner, but lining your lips with a lip liner that’s too dark compared to your lipstick color is pretty bad. So, let’s just not?
