We’ve all been there right? These common beauty mistakes.. they just had to be made. Nobody starts out at a pro at anything, we have to begin somewhere to learn! So it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but I thought this would be a fun post to see who can relate, or maybe who can’t relate! Who knows.. maybe all of this is just me and then… well… that’s just awkward isn’t it?
Alright, let’s dive right in!
Beauty Mistake #1: Contouring like a clown..
When you’re first starting out on your contour & highlight game, it’s hard to MASTER it! Maybe for some people, it comes more naturally.. for me, it definitely didn’t. Actually to be brutally honest, I didn’t really master the art of contour until about 1-2 months ago.. embarrassing right? Anybody else similar to me and found it hard to nail this art?
I feel like there’s a lot of factors that come into play that could make or break your contour – the brush you use, the shade of contour, the strokes you do, how hard you push the brush on your face, how much product you use, etc.. it’s so complex! Anyways, luckily we have Youtube to teach us the magic!
Beauty Mistake #2: NOT doing your eyebrows.
Oh no no no. We have ALL been there, do not lie to me now and tell me you have not. For a long time when I started in the makeup world, I would do my ENTIRE face, except my eyebrows. Meaning, I would do all my face makeup, eyeshadow, and then leave my eyebrows as is. It looked so incomplete!
The magic of an eyebrow gel or filling in your eyebrows is amazing truly. It really does complete the look and changes your entire makeup look! Ever since I discovered filling in your eyebrows, my makeup game has forever changed.
Beauty Mistake #3: Not blending in your eyeshadow.
I feel like this is something else that is a common mistake many people make, and still could occasionally make. When you want to add in other colors to your eyeshadow and you fail to blend, it ends up looking so crease cut and just not pretty. The magic of adding a fluffy brush and BLENDING!
Again, brushes are just so important when it comes to doing your makeup properly!
Beauty Mistake #4: Applying too much concealer.
Sometimes, I may have applied a bit too much concealer and ended up looking either like a complete ghost or just like someone smashed a cake in my face. Anybody relate? It happens.. I think I need so much coverage but then it turns out, I just poured the whole bottle onto my face, whoops.
Beauty Mistake #5: SLEEPING with makeup on!
I have actually never in my 21 years on Earth done this, can you believe that? I have always managed to take my makeup off before bed! Maybe that isn’t such an amazing accomplishment, but I still feel proud! I have this listed however because I do still see this as a common beauty mistake others make, and it’s a big no-no for your skin!
Beauty Mistake #6: Not washing your makeup brushes.
I have to get better at this myself, I admit it. Supposedly, it’s really crucial to clean your makeup brushes regularly with a mild shampoo or instant brush cleaner to prevent breaking out or even to keep your makeup looking fresh! I do try to do this every so often, but I could definitely do this more and get into a routine!
Beauty Mistake #7: Forgetting to prime!
Priming your skin before putting on makeup is actually a huge impact as to whether the application will turn out good or bad! A primer is supposed to hold your makeup in place for a longer period fo time – ever since I discovered primers, I have never stopped using them! I absolutely am obsessed with priming before I apply any makeup to ensure I have long-lasting coverage all day long.
Alright guys those are the 7 common beauty mistakes I could come up with using both my personal experiences and people around me! I am so curious to see if you related to ANY of these I mentioned, or if you have your own beauty mistakes to share below? Let me know!
