Not hydrating the skin properly before makeup
The most common mistake people make when applying makeup is not cleaning and hydrating their face before the makeup. It is important to clean the face with a cleanser and then apply a good moisturizer on your face before you apply any other product. Moisturizer hydrates your skin and makes it easy for you to apply any other product. Without the moisturizer the skin gets dry and it makes the application of other products difficult.
Not blending the makeup products
It is important to blend the makeup properly. It takes a lot of practice to blend the products properly. You need to make a good base for makeup and for that the foundation, concealer, and contour need to be blended properly and there should not be any harsh lines from contour on the face. A similar process needs to be done when it comes to eye makeup. A nicely blended eye makeup looks sleek and elegant as compared to nonblended eye makeup. Make sure to know the right technique on how to blend the products properly.
Using more than required products
Sometimes people use products in excess and that can give them a cakey look. Try not to use too much product on your face as it not only does not look good but also makes your skin bad. It can make your skin feel heavy and not at all breathable. Try to use the right or less amount of products when using them for daily purposes. You can even skip some products such as foundation when you are going for a natural look.
Not highlighting the face
The highlighter is a lot more important than it seems. Highlighters not only make your features shine, but they also enhance those features. You can give focus on your favorite features on your face with the help of a highlighter. Make sure to use some highlighter on your cheekbones, inner eye, bridge of the nose, and other areas of the face you want to be highlighted. You can use some shimmer also such as some shimmery eyeshadows or lip gloss to focus on eyelids or lips. Highlighter helps you get a dewy and glowy look.
Not cleaning your makeup before sleep

You should always remove the makeup before going to bed and not only just remove it with a makeup remover but also clean it with a cleaner and then moisturize it and do a proper skincare routine to make your skin feel fresh and healthy. Never go to bed with makeup still on your face. It can damage your skin and make your skin dry, rough and can cause acne. Not only that it can also make the skin prone to infection too.
