15 Signs You're Wearing Too Much Makeup

Posted: Updated:

Makeup is awesome, there's no question there, but we tend to abuse cosmetics. We pound on pressed powder like there’s no tomorrow and go overboard with the coats of mascara to get thicker and longer lashes.

If you're in denial or unsure of how much makeup you actually wear, here are 15 signs you're probably wearing too much. Always remember that a little makeup can go a long way.

1. You can barely move your face.
