While we’re clearly obsessed with learning everything about beauty, we’ll be the first to admit that the sheer volume of information can be daunting. And some important tips can get lost along the way. Are you using the right primer? Are you using bronzer correctly? And is powder really necessary? It’s easy to make some big makeup mistakes without even realizing it. Well, that stops now.
Once you see which mistakes you’ve been making, you’ll swear to never make them again — after all, your beauty reputation is on the line. And don’t think that only beauty newbies are prone to errors! So read on: even if you’re a professional, you’re bound to pick up a new trick or two.

Even most makeup artists confess that the time-consuming brush-cleaning process is their least favorite part of the job. But even if you don’t care that dirty brushes can make you break out, don’t forget that they’re affecting your makeup application. Not only will the colors be all muddled together, but a precise technique is rendered way more complicated — the bristles are already overloaded with pigment, blurring that perfect cut crease to oblivion.
