TIPS AND TRICKS FOR OUR BEAUTIES
The magic of makeup is real. It’s a way to express your creativity, transform your features, and enhance your inner AND outer beauty! Of course, nobody’s perfect, and we all make a few makeup mistakes here and there. While there are no rules in makeup and you should do whatever makes you happy, we’re here to share some of the most common makeup mistakes and easy fixes to get to a whole new level of gorgeous!
REACH YOUR PRIME
Not properly priming is one of the easiest makeup mistakes to make, and who can blame you? We all like to sleep in, and it’s difficult to spend the extra time priming your face or eyes when you need to be out the door. However, this should be one of the most essential steps in your beauty routine. Not only does primer keep skin hydrated, it ensures that product goes on smoothly, evenly, and lasts all day long!
Want your foundation to stay stunning throughout the day? The key is a good primer, like our Studio Pro Anti-Shine. Dab a small amount on your face and blend before applying face makeup for creamy, long-lasting coverage that will have you looking fresh and flawless. You can also wear primer alone to reduce the appearance of large pores, absorb excess oil and give you a naturally beautiful complexion.
Let’s not forget the eyes! All eyeshadow lovers know the importance of priming before creating captivating eye effects, and we’re here to teach you the way! Set the stage for gorgeous looks with our Smooth Canvas Long-Wear Shadow Primer, a versatile formula that goes on creamy and dries to a soft matte finish. Apply over the lid before packing on shadows to be sure that your eye look slays all day!
BLEND TO YOUR BEST
The key to gorgeous, natural-looking makeup is mastering the art of blending! When it comes to buffing out your foundation or creating an ultra-fierce contour, this is one of the makeup mistakes you’ll definitely want to avoid.
For a flawless contour, precision tools are your best friends. Grab a quality brush set like our Studio Pro Brush Set – Blush/Contour for a set of tools that blends to seamless perfection and gives the illusion of a slimmer nose, smaller forehead, or chiseled cheekbones. Are you more of a beauty sponge person? No prob! Our Studio Pro Beauty Sponge features a rounded end that blends smaller areas of the face and provides an undetectable finish. These tools are a must-have, because if not blended properly, your contour can look muddy or patchy.
The importance of blending also goes for eye looks! All eyeshadow lovers know that you can’t get a fab cut crease or smokey eye without blending with the best, and that’s where we come in! Our Vegan Brush Set – Essential Eye has five versatile tools to blend beautifully.
Eyebrows are one of our best features. They frame your face, highlight your eyes, and can make or break your makeup look. That’s why they should be as flattering as possible, and we’re here to give you tips for your most gorgeous brows!
While the ideal brow shape depends on your face shape and personal preferences, it’s safe to say that less is more. Common makeup mistakes include overfilling them, tweezing too thin, or drawing lines unevenly. Luckily, we have some amazing products that will let you up your brow game like never before.
Our Studio Pro Shade & Define Duo Brow Pencil is a revolutionary, duel-ended tool for the ideal arch. It features a thin, darker-hued tip for precise, hair-like strokes that reach smaller areas and avoids overfilling, while the thick, lighter-hued tip shades like a dream for evenly shaped, sleek brows. Top it off with our Flawless Brow Gel in Clear to set your masterpiece!
NOT CLEANING YOUR BRUSHES
No artist is complete without the proper tools, and that’s why we need to to treat our makeup brushes with kindness! They’re amazing tools that create gorgeous looks on the daily, and that’s why it’s ideal to give them a good scrub on a weekly basis.
If you don’t properly clean your tools, you could be literally be sweeping dirt and grime on your face. EW! Since most generic soaps don’t properly remove product, it’s totally worth it to invest in a good brush cleaner, like our Studio Pro Makeup Brush Cleaner. Just one or two spritzes removes all traces of makeup between uses and keeps brushes happy and healthy!

The simplest way to avoid this common makeup mistake is to is to get color-matched. You can generally get matched for free at a variety of beauty counters and makeup shops.
