There are few beauty rules that simply shouldn't be broken. 

PUBLIC PREENING

Quick touch ups on the go are a-okay but public preening is a definite no-no. Save 
the brow plucking, spot squeezing and hair brushing for behind closed doors. 

HAIR TOO LONG

Long hair is gorgeous but too much of a good thing isn't. To your bra strap and 
just below is the way to go. To your butt is too much. 

VISIBLE LIP LINER

We know where your lips are so make sure your lip liner matches your lipstick.

FOUNDATION RULES

Flawless foundation is the key but don't forget to match your face to your neck. 
To avoid looking like you're wearing a mask, blend your foundation down to 
your décolletage. 

GLITTER TIME

All that glitters is not gold. Err on the side of subtle shimmer instead of blinding 
disco ball. If you have to ask if it's too much, it is. 

Can you add to this list? What beauty rules do you always, always stick to?
