Real talk: You’re applying your makeup all wrong. Here’s how to FINALLY do it the right way to get that glow and look natural.

💄Top 5 Makeup Mistakes (& how to avoid making them!)
Best intentions. But, makeup mistakes happen. Which of these are you guilty of doing?
Brushes: If you do clean your brushes, congrats! But – what are you using to clean them? Shampoo? Bar soap? Fancy makeup brush cleaner? All wrong. Instead, use a little bit ofto get out all the major makeup, then follow cleansing with a teaspoon size of your
Eyeshadow: Most women use either 1 shade or 5 (or more) shades on their lids. Know what the magic number is? Three. (*watch the video below on how to make 3 shades of eyeshadow work for you)
Makeup Storage: Where is your makeup right now? If you answered, “the bathroom”, you are making a major mistake. Steam from the shower and sink makes your makeup mildew. And grow bacteria. Instead, store in a “dressing room” type of space. If you must store it in the bathroom, keep the makeup in an air-tight container.
Mascara: Skipping mascara is a no-no. Its the quickest, easiest and (usually) most natural way to open up your eyes to make it appear you had 8 hours of sleep the night before! Tip: when you apply mascara, curl your lashes (if you want) BEFORE applying mascara. Otherwise you will be breaking off your little lashes. And no mascara on the bottom lashes because it typically flakes off leaving you with the look of dark circles under your eyes. Yikes.
Blush Color: Try this Trick: pinch your cheeks. Take a selfie. Match that pinched cheek selfie color to a CREAM blush (better than a powder for a more natural look) when you are shopping for shades. That’s how you do it. Who knew?
