#1 PERFUME OVERLOAD
You don’t want people to smell you before they actually see you. And DO NOT refresh it before you enter a cinema or a concert theatre.

#2 LIP LINER THAT SHOWS AFTER YOUR MEAL
Don’t just draw in your lip outline, shade in your entire lip.

#3 THICK, CLUMPY MASCARA
Two coats are sufficient.

#4 BITTEN NAILS
If you can’t curb the habit, try gel manicures to create a polished look.

#5 TOO MUCH FOUNDATION
This makes you look like you’re wearing a mask. Try this instead: Apply foundation at discoloured skin areas only, and blend well to even out skin tone.

#6 SUNBURNT SKIN
It just shows that you don’t take care of your skin, and don’t care to. Wear sunscreen whenever you head out.

#7 SLOUCHING
Superstars do not slouch. They stand up straight and walk tall. Slouching brings your glam factor down to zero.
