Keeping up with new beauty trends may be fun, but there's a fine line between looking great and looking clownish. Here are some mistakes you should avoid. (1) Layering makeup on dry skin. If you don't want a flakey, cakey finish, you need to make sure your skin is clean, moisturized, and smooth. Start with prepping your skin by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing to ensure your makeup looks polished. (2) Not blending your foundation past your jawline. Even if your foundation perfectly matches your skin tone, it's still important to blend it past your jawline for a seamless finish. (3) Applying bronzer all over your face. Bronzer is meant to give you a gentle sun-kissed look and not meant to go all over your face. A good way to remember where to apply bronzer is to place it where the sun would naturally hit your face, like the forehead, cheekbone, and jawline.
