Ladies, Beauty Mistakes You Need To Stop Making

 

Expired makeup: Like any product, makeup has an expiration date, and if you have had products in your drawers for longer than you can remember, just throw it out. Besides not being as effective, expired makeup can also lead to skin irritation and eye infections

Makeup brushes: Dirty brushes can make you break out and they’re affecting your makeup application. All the colours will be muddled together.Your brushes can be a playground for bacteria buildup if not cleaned regularly, which can clog pores and lead to unsightly breakouts. Clean your brushes once you are done using them with a little bit of baby shampoo under lukewarm, running water.

Water proof mascara: Waterproof mascara is amazing if you’re attending a wedding or spending a day at the pool, but it shouldn’t be your everyday go-to. The formula that makes it water-resistant will also dry out your lashes.

Bad-Beauty-Habits

Too much foundation: Unless you’re hiding discolouration or blemishes, there is no reason to apply foundation to your entire face it can make you look as if you’re wearing a mask. Instead, focus on trouble areas like the T-zone, around the nose, and under the eyes, leaving the rest of your skin fresh.

Brow pencil: Using a pencil to help fill in your eyebrows can leave them looking overdone and unnatural. Instead, use a powder and a small, angled brush and lightly stroke in sparse spots to achieve the perfect, natural shape and look.

Using wrong primer for your foundation: Check the ingredients in your foundation and match it with a primer that has the same base. For example, if your foundation is water based, you’ll want to pair it with a water-based primer, not a silicone-based one.

Tracing lips with liner: With the constant obsession to get fuller lips, lip liner can be a wonderful tool to amplify your natural lip line. Yet if you only use it to outline your lips, once your lipstick fades and it will, then that line will be exposed instead, fill in all your lips with the liner, then add lipstick or gloss over that.

Beauty-mistakes-4Testing foundation colours on the back of your hand: While it is always a good idea to test makeup before purchasing, using the back of your hand  isn’t the ideal place to do it, the skin there is naturally different from the one on your face. The best spot to test foundations is right on your jawline.

Not setting your makeup: If you’re taking the time to apply foundation and concealer, then don’t let those efforts go to waste by not setting it with a finishing powder. A light dusting all over will help to ensure everything stays in place.

Over- powdering: As important as it is to set your makeup, it is equally important not to overdo it on the powder. Just because it’s labelled “translucent” does not mean it’s invisible. Be sure to use a light touch when applying your first layer, and if you’re touching up during the day, only use where needed. If you suffer from extra oily skin, be sure to use blotting papers first as adding more makeup will result in a caky look.

img_1068Sleeping with makeup on: falling asleep with a dirty face can make you look older sooner, it doesn’t just cause breakout alone. Makeup settles in your pores and stretches them out, which is permanent over time.

Wearing bronzer all over: The idea is to apply it to the areas where the sun would naturally hit. Stick to the outer edges of your face, the top of your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline. When done correctly, you will actually be drawing the number 3 on both sides of your face.

Pumping the brush in an almost empty mascara tube: When you do this, you’re not actually scooping up every last trace of mascara; you’re pumping air into the tube, which dries out the formula. Unless you want clumpy, spidery lashes, just buy a new tube. After all, there are plenty of high-quality, affordable mascara options.
