14 Common Beauty Mistakes You Might Be Making

6 Apr 2016 by Venetia Sng

We have all made beauty blunders, but sometimes it’s such a norm that we do them over and over again without even registering that it’s actually wrong. Ahead, we list down the most common beauty mistakes most of us make so that you won’t slip up like we did.

#1 Not Washing Makeup Brushes

Yes it’s a hassle, but if you don’t want any break outs or even get an eye infection, then we recommend you wash those brushes at least once a month. Dip the brush in warm, soapy water, rinse it, blot the brush with a clean towel, then use a hair dryer to dry the bristles gently.

#2 Concealer That’s Too Light

Too many of us suffer from the reverse racoon look by using eye concealers that are too light. No matter if it’s for the under eye or to cover up blemishes, concealers should be as close to your natural skin tone as possible in order to blend properly. 

Common-Beauty-Mistakes-3

#3 Applying Eyeliner Over Tear Duct

Moisture from the tear ducts might cause your eyeliner to smudge throughout the day. Plus it isn’t funny when you get a blocked or infected tear duct, so avoid drawing your liner over the inner corners of your eyes. 

#4 Foundation That Doesn’t Match Skin Tone

We know many of you (us included) have made this mistake of using a foundation that doesn’t match your skin tone. Instead of just getting one that looks about right, get a store staff to help you find the perfect shade.

#5 Not Prepping For Lipstick

Exfoliate your lips if they are chapped and always apply lip balm before putting on any lip colour. No one likes to look at peeling lips no matter how pretty the colour is.

#6 Applying Hair Conditioner Wrongly

Most people would either apply too much conditioner all over their hair, which weighs the hair down and makes it look greasy, or they’d only apply it at the lower half of their hair. The best way to use the hair conditioner is to start from the tips of your hair then work your way up to your roots, so that the roots of your hair won’t receive so much product, which would make the hair limp and cause greasy scalp.

Common-Beauty-Mistakes-1

#7 Rubbing Hair Dry With Towel

Rubbing hair dry with a towel is no doubt the fastest way to dry your hair, but it’s also the fastest route to breakage and frizz. Care for that precious head of hair by using your hands to squeeze out the water in your hair and then blot it with a towel.

#8 Spraying Perfume After Getting Dressed

We are all guilty as charged! Not only does it stain fabric, perfume might smell unpleasant when applied on certain fabrics. Perfume is meant to be applied to the skin, so lightly dab or spray it at pulse points – wrists (don’t rub your wrists together!), base of throat, behind the ears and knees. 

#9 Neglecting The Neck

When applying skincare products on your face, don’t stop at the chin! Your neck is just as important ’cause it’s prone to ageing as well. You wouldn’t want a youthful face paired with a wrinkly neck right?

#10 Touching Face With Hands

No one can remember what their hands touch every minute of every day. If you just imagine the amount of germs and bacteria accumulated on ’em, you would keep those hands away from your precious face.

Common-Beauty-Mistakes-2

#11 Not Using Sunscreen

We cannot emphasise how important sun protection is – get into the habit of applying sunscreen each and every day. It isn’t just important for preventing those dark spots and wrinkles, but there are real health problems like skin cancer that is mostly caused by excessive sun exposure.

#12 Too Young For Anti-Ageing Products

There’s no need to buy super high-end beauty products as they might be too rich for your young skin as well. But using some anti-ageing products can never hurt ’cause we always believe in prevention rather than looking for a cure when it’s too late.

#13 Not Moisturising Properly

Too much moisturiser and it will cause clogged pores, too little and your skin will scale and itch. Having oily skin doesn’t mean that you don’t have to moisturise as it might just lead to more oil production. No matter your skin type, always replace the moisture you’ve lost after washing.

#14 Using The Wrong Cleanser

It might feel good when your face is squeaky-clean after a wash, but what you’re doing is over-drying that complexion of yours by stripping away its natural moisture. Use foam cleansers only when you have really oily skin. If not, opt for a moisturising cream cleanser or a gentler formula that won’t dry out your precious skin.

How many of these points are you guilty of? Time to make a change to that beauty routine!
