Beauty Offenses to Nix From Your Routine

top_ten_beauty_mistakes_to_avoid
We’re all guilty of making a beauty mistake or two, though few of us will admit it. Whether it is in the application, the product, or the tool, beauty mistakes are being made every single day. The good news is that you can prevent bad beauty habits from becoming a part of your normal routine. Read on to learn ten mistakes you should avoid making.

First and foremost, the cardinal rule: do not fall asleep with makeup on! Doing so will cause clogged pores and breakouts, but it can also lead to cellular damaging and early aging. Do your skin a favor, and wash before you sleep.

Always match your lip liner to your lipstick, to avoid the obvious “rimmed” look. Blend liner into the lips to ensure that your lip color goes the distance.

Avoid tugging on your eyes when applying eyeliner, as this can contribute to crow’s feet.

Always blend your foundation into your neck and décolleté, to prevent the “mask” look.

Keep your makeup brushes clean. A failure to do so can lead to breakouts, caused by the accumulation of oil and bacteria on your brushes.

When applying sunscreen, don’t forget to apply a generous amount to these commonly missed areas: your ears, your neck, and the back of your hands. All of these body parts can show signs of aging just as easily as your face.

Blot excess lipstick and gloss from your lips by puckering your pout and sticking your finger in your mouth. Removing excess product keeps your lip color from ending up on your teeth—not a good look for anyone.

Curl your lashes before applying mascara. Working it the other way around can result in lash loss.

Practice color balance on your eyes. If you are applying light eye shadow to your lids, be sure to also apply a slightly darker shade to balance the shape.

No matter what you apply to your face, always blend, blend, and blend again! In order to achieve the most natural, flawless effect from your foundation, blush, eye shadow, etc., it’s crucial that you blend away harsh lines.

What bad beauty habit are you trying to break?

Really good tips in here! I will try to stop curling after mascara. Maybe I need a better eyelash curler. This comment has been removed.

@Quixotic1 It's one of the top beauty offenders. If it is easier for you, grab some makeup removing face wipes instead. Quick fix, and they work! This comment has been removed.

@cece_lam What works for me is looking slightly down at a mirror, to make sure I get the shape right. Also, use creamier formulas or liquid, and there will be no need to tug. This comment has been removed.

@eyecandyxoxo Get some baby shampoo, mix it with a bit of water, and swirl your dirty brush in it. Rinse the shampoo out, and allow it to air dry. Voila, instant clean brushes! This comment has been removed.

It's so hard not to pull on my eyes when I do eyeliner. Are there any tricks to not pulling and getting the same result? This comment has been removed.

@lipstickislove Great to hear! Be careful tugging any skin. It loses elasticity as you age, and tugging makes the process go faster. This comment has been removed.

@vamp1967 Premature send, oops! That is a great question. I would opt for stay-put formulas, designed to be sweat and transfer proof. Another thing I would try is a microfine setting powder, like Make Up For Ever's HD Powder. That might help to keep the makeup on your skin and off of your lovely white blouse. :) This comment has been removed.
