Whether you’re new to makeup or have been your own MUA for years, you’ve run into some missteps while perfecting a look. There are many makeup slip-ups women make time after time that you could be guilty of yourself. Peruse our list of makeup no-no’s to be sure you won’t continue to commit these makeup crimes.

1. Dusting on powder

It turns out we’ve used powder brushes wrong for years! I’m sure you’ve swirled a large makeup brush in powder and buffed the product into the skin. Although the powder may look fine, chances are you’ve moved around the foundation and concealer underneath it. Get in the habit of pressing and rolling your setting powder into your skin with a velour puff, then dust a clean powder brush over your face. Try it and you’ll notice your makeup will stay put all day.
