SLEEPING WITH MAKEUP ON

Leaving your makeup on night can clog your pores and cause acne. If you absolutely cannot wash your face before bed, make sure you use a facial cleansing wipe to remove most of the makeup. At night, the skin breathes and restores itself, so it’s very important to be makeup-free.

USING DIRTY MAKEUP BRUSHES

Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly is vital to keeping dirt and bacteria away. I recommend giving your brushes a rinse at least once a week. I like to use a natural shampoo or dishwashing liquid with some warm water. Angle your brushes downward to dry by propping up the handle with a folded towel. This way, water won’t get into the ferrules and dislodge the bristles.

WASHING YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY

This actually dries out your hair and damages it. Instead of washing daily, massage some talc-free dry shampoo in your hair in between washes. Wash your hair about two to three times a week. It will keep your hair healthier much longer.

OVERTWEEZING YOUR BROWS

As a makeup artist, the one thing that I always notice is an overplucked brow. It actually makes you look older, plus the hairs take forever to grow back. I suggest getting your brows shaped by a professional and then maintaining them yourself.

OVERHEATING YOUR HAIR

Blow drying, straightening, and curling your hair damages the follicles if you don’t use a heat-protecting product. To better care for your hair, let it air-dry as much as you can. Whenever possible, apply a moisturizing hair mask to repair dry and damaged locks.

POPPING PIMPLES

I know it’s tempting but picking at your skin can lead to scarring and acne. Instead, dab some tea-tree oil (or my favorite natural acne treatment of honey and cinnamon) on the spot and it will go away in no time.
