Top Makeup Mistakes \n I realize that many of us are guilty of making a few makeup mistakes, but I had no idea that I was making so many of them myself. So many of them that we thought we would put together our top beauty blunders that you are probably making too. Check out these common makeup mistakes and see if you are guilty too.\n1. Not cleaning your makeup brushes...\n Every time you use your brushes, you spread old makeup product, bacteria and dirt on to your face. Best practice is to clean your brushes after every use. Here is an easy and cheap way to keep your brushes clean and make them last longer. This zoomed in view of makeup products on this brush proves just how dirty they can become.\n\n\n2. Sleeping in your makeup...\n If you decide to skip this evening routine, you are exposing your skin to additional germs and bacteria, resulting in clogged pores. Your skin needs a chance to breathe, and removing your makeup before bed gives it that chance.\n\n\n3. Applying bronzer on your entire face...\nInstead, use this cheat sheet and get a more natural looking glow.\n\n \n4. Not using primer on your eyelids...\n If you want your makeup to stay put then always use a primer. Your eyeshadow will be more vibrant and your eyeliner will still be there at the end of the day.\n\n\n5. Keeping makeup way to long...\n\n\n6. Pumping the brush in your mascara tube...\nI bet anyone who uses mascara is guilt of this. Habits are hard to break, but you need to stop this one. Pumping your mascara wand forces in air and bacteria into your mascara, drying it out more quickly. It also overloads the bristles with too much product. Your mascara will become clumpy.\n7. Curling your lashes with mascara on...\nWhen you curl your eyelashes, do it before applying mascara. The curler can stick to the mascara and end up pulling lashes out....ouch!\n8. Matching your foundation to the back of your hand or face...\n The skin on your face and hands isn't the same color as the rest of your body due to sun exposure. If you match your foundation to your cheek, you might end up with a shade that doesn't match your neck rest of your body and won't look natural.\n\n\n9. Applying concealer under your eyes without using a color corrector...\n In general, orange is used to correct very deep-blue dark circles, green cancels redness like rosacea and broken capillaries, and lavender is used for very yellow tones\n\n\n\n\n\nA video posted by Mixed Makeup (@mixedmakeup) on Dec 10, 2016 at 1:10pm PST\n\n\n\n10. Highlighting apples of cheeks when you have large pores...\nThis will only accentuate them.\n11. Using black brow makeup...\n This is a definite no, no matter what color hair you have. Black eyebrow makeup looks way to harsh. Using a lighter shade will look a bit more natural. Here is a complete guide to shaping your brows from start to finish.\n\n\n\n\n\nA video posted by Makeupvideoss (@makeupviddeoss) on Jun 11, 2016 at 6:02am PDT\n\n\n\n12.

Use loose powder on oily skin...\n Too much powder can make your makeup look cakey.\n14. Apply concealer before foundation....\nYou'll just end up removing it as you apply your base.\n15. Applying loose powder before you apply your foundation or concealer...\nIt works best to apply powder after your other beauty products such as your foundation and concealer. It sets your makeup for the day.
