My Beauty Routine Mistakes

Hey everyone! Yesterday I was thinking about what I've been doing in my beauty routine that I've been slacking on.  Then I thought that I'm probably not the only one doing these or other people might be doing these things without knowing they shouldn't.  I'm going to share those mistakes I've been making in my beauty routine.  Let's get started...
  • Drinking water - Water is basically the only thing I drink.  If you read my post about hiding blemishes, you know that I had some break outs that were really frustrating me.  Last week I noticed that I had been lacking on the water.  Even though it's all I drink, I didn't feel that I was drinking enough.  Since then I've been downing water, and I've noticed a difference in my skin already.  DRINK YOUR WATER!
  • Wash your makeup brushes - I'm not saying that I never wash my brushes, but I'm guilty of not washing them as much as I should.  So many things can build up on your makeup brushes, and that might be a reason why you get break outs every now and then.  
  • Rubbing eyes -  If you're anything like me, you go to town with the eye rubbing in the morning and at night.  Every time I rub my eyes I have to stop myself because I know it's bad.  The skin around your eyes is so delicate.  It's never too early to prevent wrinkles, so I'm trying to hold back on the eye rubbing.
  • Pulling on your eyes - This kind of goes into the eye rubbing.  I noticed that I kind of pull on my under eye area when I apply my concealer.  I'm trying to remember to dab my makeup brush a little more gently.  If you apply under eye concealer with your fingers, use your ring finger to apply and dab.  It's the least harsh of all your other fingers.
  • Pat moisturizer on - Moisturizer is important, but the way you apply it is important too.  I catch myself rubbing my moisturizer on and pulling my hands down my face.  Again, I've heard this is a way that can cause wrinkles and drooping when you get older.  I try to remind myself to pat on my moisturizer.  
Those were some beauty mistakes I've been making.  Do any of you do these things?  I hope this was a good reminder for what not to do!  Have a great rest of the week!


  1. Great post. I sometimes forget to wash my makeup brushes and then I feel guilty.
