Forgetting to wash your makeup brushes
Brushes are essential in making sure that your makeup look is flawless and on point. But just like you, they also need a day off. Not giving them their much-needed cleaning makes them accumulate bacteria that transfer to your skin, not to mention potentially ruin the material of your brushes in the long run.
But no need to feel like they'll get in the way of your weekend relaxation — experts and beauty enthusiasts agree that cleaning them once or twice a month is enough. Plus, there are two simple ways you can do it: quick-dry or wet wash. The first option is done by simply using a makeup brush cleanser of your choice that is available in the same place you buy your makeup, and the second option is done by using warm water and a gentle shampoo or mild bar soap to do the rinsing.
Using expired makeup
The last thing to make it to this list is probably the one that you should never do but might have done without even knowing it: using expired makeup.
We all know how expensive some of our favourite products can be. And if you have a growing collection, then chances are you don't use some of the products you have as often as others. But if you decided to declutter your beauty collection and yet would still want to hold on to some of the products you have in your stash, think again! Expired makeup can do damage to your skin and can even be toxic in the long run. So make sure you keep the chart above in mind and toss out an expired makeup product soon (no matter how painful that can be *sobs*) for your own good.
