Six Beauty Mistakes You’re Making Right Now!


There’s so many dos and don’ts these days and it can be hard when one blogger swears by a technique or product and another shames it. Here are a few beauty mistakes though that I think most of us are guilty of making…

Curling your lashes with mascara on 

I, unfortunately, learnt this the hard way when getting ready for a night out, spending ages perfecting my mascara and then ending up ripping half my lashes out when attempting to curl them after! Just don’t do it ladies!

Not cleaning your brushes enough

I think we’re all guilty of this really! I know it’s such a mundane job, especially when you’ve got so many brushes but it’s got to be done! If you don’t wash them, bacteria will build up and it will break you out!

Under eye concealer 

As long as I can remember I’ve always swooped my concealer right under my eye in a U shape but it just doesn’t do much for me! The trick is to create an upside-down triangle under the eye to ensure you’re really highlighting that whole part of your face. Also get your hands on a slightly lighter concealer than the one you use for blemishes and don’t forget to set it with translucent powder!

Overloading foundation 

I am the biggest culprit of this, shame on me! Try to avoid overdoing it with the foundation, it will make your makeup slide off quicker and will really clog up your pores. All you need to do is just apply it to areas where it’s necessary and you can build it up from there!

Spending a bomb on cleaning your makeup brushes 

There’s no need to be buying the latest deep cleansing brush cleaner or whatever they’re called these days.. I’ve always used baby shampoo and it does the perfect job for a quarter of the price!


Yeah yeah I know contouring is massive at the moment thanks to no other than Kim K herself but really girls, do you need to pile it on that much? Don’t make the mistake of going overboard and looking like a skeleton, just use a more grey toned contour colour for a natural effect.

No matter how much I know that I should clean my makeup brushes I just dread it until I can't anymore. 🙁 I really need to start cleaning them more frequently xx
