  • Mistake: Applying Foundation with a Flat Brush
Just image search the words “foundation brush,” and you’ll see that people have no clue what it is. Typically, the brushes marketed for foundation are flat—but Johnson says that using a flat brush causes streaks in your foundation.

  • Mistake: Applying Mascara in One Upward Stroke
When it comes to lashes, a little bit of added effort goes a long way—literally. Johnson says one of the biggest mistakes clients make is applying a coat of mascara in one upward stroke, which doesn’t maximize the lengthening and volumizing capabilities

  • Mistake: Using White Liner to Make Eyes Look Bigger
A few years back, white liner was big in the beauty community because it supposedly made eyes look larger by extending the whites of your eyes. Johnson warns that the starkness of the white now looks dated and unnatural.

  • Mistake: Using a Warm-Toned Bronzer to Contour
When it comes to bronzer, you may think it’s all about the golden glow—but that warm glow actually looks unnatural. Shadows, even those on the face, are naturally cool in tone, says Johnson. She says that for contouring, it’s key to use a matte bronzer

  • Mistake: Blending Your Shadow with the Same Brush
It’s common knowledge that blend-blend-blending is the key to a flawless smoky eye, but if you’re blending with a dirty brush, you’re not going to like the end result. The purpose of blending is to achieve a gradient effect with soft, sexy edges

  • Mistake: Matching Eyebrows to Your Hair Color
Johnson says this is a surefire way to look like a mannequin. Naturally, eyebrows are a completely different shade than your hair (they’re generally one or two shades lighter or darker).

  • Mistake: Piling on Powder to Set Makeup

Not only does this make your skin look dry, unnatural, and cakey, but it also clogs your pores, says Johnson. While this is a traditional way to make makeup last, there is another, better way: setting spray. Johnson swears by Skindinavia Oil Control Makeup
