We’ve all seen the beauty fails. But whether we’re a beauty beginner, expert or celeb, we’re capable of making mistakes. A little homework can keep us focused, off that list of beauty blunders, and looking our best. According to the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics, these five steps are key to building a daily routine that lets our natural beauty shine through.
5 Beauty Blunders to Avoid
#1 Limit Your Bronzer
Less is more here. Limiting the touches of bronze will help you mimic that sun-kissed look we all crave in fall. If you want an all-over bronze look, try a self-tanner. Heavy-handed bronzer can create a mask look at your hairline. Treat bronzer like a blush to add a healthy glow to your cheekbone, nose and forehead.
#2 Correct Conditioning
Conditioning your hair doesn’t mean from the top down. Don’t weigh down healthy new growth at the roots; focus on the ends, instead. Starting just below your ears, smooth on your conditioner all the way to those damaged ends. Your hair will reward you with volume and a less greasy look.
#3 Sleep in This
While sleep is good for your health, sleeping in makeup is bad for your skin’s health. Tired or not, step up to that mirror and grab a wipe or a soft cloth. Skip that oh so important cleanse and you’re inviting breakouts and enlarged pores to the sleepover, and they’ll sabotage your youthful skin routine. Allowing makeup and dirt to settle into your pores causes your skin to look rough and aged.
#4 Slow Down
End blotchiness and streaks in your foundation by allowing your moisturizer to dry first. Change your morning routine a bit to build in that time. Multitask! How many emails can you check in 60 seconds? If you’re in a rush, blot first, then apply your foundation.
#5 Power Up Your Perfume
Unfortunately, most perfumes stain fabrics. Some even alter your signature scent when they touch fabric fibers. Help your fragrance linger longer by applying it directly to the skin. Your body heat adds staying power. Change up your order and spritz before you dress and neither you nor your fragrance will be an afterthought.
