7. Applying Way Too Much Mascara
As human beings, we love to get a little extra of everything. But, when it comes to mascara, a little bit too much can make your eyelashes look tremendously clumpy. Two coats of mascara are more than enough. Also, make sure your mascara isn't older than 3 to 4 months. The older the mascara, the clumpier your eyelashes look.
8. Having Obsession With Face Powder
If there is one thing you would find in every lady's purse, it ought to be face powder. We are so obsessed with face powder that we consider it the perfect makeup finale. However, face powders highlight all the fine lines and wrinkles, making you appear aged. Only use face powder on your T-zone and completely avoid using it as you age.
9. Sleeping With Your Makeup On
If it’s a healthy skin that you are aiming for, removing all traces of makeup before going to bed is a must. Failure to do so can lead to your skin getting dried up. It can also lead to acne and skin infections, which can make your face look completely off track.
10. Keeping Your Brushes Dirty
Dirty brushes are the abode of harmful bacteria which can cause skin irritations and acne. Wash your brushes at least once a week to make them stay in good shape for as long as possible.
11. Not Applying Sunscreen
Sunscreens are not a part of every woman’s makeup routine. However, sunscreen plays an important role in protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays. It also makes for an excellent base for your foundation.
12. Testing Foundation On The Wrong Spots
We always test the makeup shades on our hands. But, our hands have more redness than our face, which leads to an indication of the wrong tone. Test the shades on your jawline to find the right shade. As for lip colors, use a clean brush to test the counter samples on your lips.
