I was recently reminded of the phenomenon where women feel compelled to leave their mouths gaping open while applying eyeliner or mascara. I can only compare it to a tightrope walker holding his arms out for balance. And it really doesn't make our eyes wider, just our mouths! It is quite bizarre and one day I decided I was tired of looking silly so I put a plan into action to end the "o" face.
The easiest way to do this is to tilt your chin up, like you're looking down the end of your nose at someone. Hold your mirror up and go to work. Please note: a hands-free mirror makes this even easier!
The main reason I wanted to break the habit was that I found myself making THE face when I was applying make-up on other people. I felt it was seriously unprofessional to leave my mouth agape while working! What a no-no!
As always, make-up should be fun, so go play and enjoy it!
