Too much blush
Sprinkle translucent powder on a makeup sponge and blend over the too-bright color. The trick is to blend the color in toward the apple of the cheeks instead o out toward your eyes. If cheeks still look too intense, go over them again with two drops of foundation on a makeup wedge.
Act immediately, since mascara is formulated to dry in seconds. Wipe all the formula off your mascara wand with a piece of paper napkin (not a tissue, which may shed) and wiggle the wand gently from side to side, from roots to the tips of lashes.
To fill the undesired void, brush brow hairs in the opposite direction of growth so the bare area becomes more visible, then use an ultrafine brow pencil to cover it with light, hair-length strokes. Finally, brush the brow back into place.
Dip the pad of a finger from the opposite hand into polish remover and gently blend away the smear with your finger. Add a coat of clear polish instead of more color (which would make that nail darker than the others).
To remove a fragrance’s concentrated oil base, rub skin with an unscented baby wipe or a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol. To vaporize a scent that you’ve oversprayed on clothing, blast fabric with hair dryer for 30 seconds.
Use a wide-tooth comb on a small sections of hair, starting at the ends and working up to the roots. Rub a dime-size dollop of hand cream between your hands and run your fingers through the over-sprayed spot to take away the crackle and add moisture. Shake your head upside down after-ward, since some cheaper sprays flake once the formula is broken up.
