How to Correct 8 Common Beauty Mistakes
Common Mistake: Applying Foundation Without Giving Moisturizer Time to Dry
The creaminess of a moisturizer can cause makeup to thin out if the moisturizer hasn't had enough time to soak into the skin.
"This can result in blotchiness and ultimately limit the amount of coverage your foundation can offer throughout the day,"
says Laura Geller, a makeup artist in New York City.
A better way: Wait 60 seconds, until the moisturizer is absorbed. Or, if you're short on time, blot your face with a tissue after moisturizing, then apply foundation.
