Hello: I would greatly appreciate help with this. My exercise is as follows:
Identify and explain any mistakes in the form and use of adjectives:
"I wear make up with lips brightly reds and I am usually a character with passionately."
"I am tall one metre thirty nine and I have blonds, longs hairs, blues eyes and a nose little and crooked."
I know these are wrong and could change them to make them sound right but I am supposed to focus on the adjectives. Could someone tell me why they are wrong and please explain what the mistakes are?

What are your answers?
1. adjectives don't take number or tense markers.
2. some adjectives take -ly, but most do not.
3. most adjectives go before the noun they modify.
