When I was younger, I wasn't too knowledgeable about makeup. And not just how to apply it, but how it would affect my skin. So, needless to say, when my face started breaking out, I couldn't understand the reason. My mom said it was because I shouldn't be wearing makeup (seriously, parents will say anything to get you to follow the rules). But I soon learned that it was because of the many makeup hygiene mistakes I was unintentionally making.
Needless to say, I quickly found out that the cause of my breakouts could be linked back to my beauty routines. (Yes Mom, you were right. Happy?) Since I wasn't used to wearing makeup often, I rarely took the necessary, extra steps to take care of my tools and products. To be honest, I can probably count on one hand the number of times I cleaned my two makeup brushes when I first got into the makeup game. But once I realized these mistakes were wreaking havoc on my skin, I started making some necessary changes to my makeup routine.
Whether you're just starting out with makeup or you've been "beating your face" for some time, these 11 mistakes are very common and should be changed STAT.
