Beauty Mistakes to Avoid

Living in an all girls dorm last year was almost like having a floor full of sisters to help set you straight. Whether your colors were slightly off, or you lashes were actually hanging off, someone was always there to help a girl out. Sometimes, you just need the opinion of another girl. I have definitely matured with my knowledge in beauty thanks to my living arrangement so I thought it would be beneficial to share some beauty mistakes I have learned to avoid!

1. Always wash your face!
I know, I know: it's so much easier to just crawl into bed after a long day and pray that the makeup rubs off in your sleep. We have all had those nights where washing our face is a drag, but I can assure you that washing your face is a huge benefit. Washing your face removes all the unwanted debris your face collects throughout the day. If you don't get around to washing your face, be sure to use makeup wipes! Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are my personal favorite.

2. Do your eyebrows!!!
I can not stress this enough. Anyone who knows me well will be able to tell you that my eyebrows are my pride and joy. Eyebrows really shape your entire face and perfectly shaped brows provide you with a flawless finish. Being introduced to an eyebrow pencil was honestly the best thing ever. Check out my previous post, "Eyebrow Mania" to see which shape best fits your face and remember to do your brows!!

3. Don't go too light or too dark.
Please, please, pleaseee, I am begging you to match your foundation to your skin tone. There is nothing wrong with going to the beauty counter of your favorite makeup company to get the best color match for your concealer, foundation and/or powder. There is really nothing worse than your face looking five times lighter or darker than your neck in pictures.

4. Take off the lashes before bedtime.
I understand how meticulous it is to apply eyelashes for that fantabulous finishing effect. But, even though they are so fantabulous, you have to take them off before bed. You don't want to ruin the fantabulousness by smushing your lases in your sleep. Lashes are to be reused so remember to take them off.   

5. When in doubt, blend it out.
Blend, blend, blend, and when you think you're done, blend some more! Blending your makeup is one of the most important aspects of makeup application. Blending provides you with a better coverage overall and makes your makeup look professional and flawless. You don't want any harsh lines in your eye shadow or an extremely bright spot on your forehead so be sure to blend!

These are just a couple of beauty mistakes I have learned to avoid and I hope that you find them helpful! Be sure to comment with some beauty mistakes to avoid of your own! And as always, Stay Profashional my loves! xoxo
