Strikingly similar to grammar, the beauty world has its own set of common mistakes. Especially since product myths are everywhere online, there's a slight chance that you, too, are committing these blunders.

Below are five possible products that you could be using the wrong way:

1. Cleansing oil

Oil and water don't mix—that we all know. Except in the case of oil cleansing, where the two work fantastically together. To get the most of your cleansing oils and balms, dampen your fingers with a bit of water after working the oil in. This will emulsify the oil and help it break down makeup and dirt easier. After that, rinse and move on to the next step in your routine!

2. Toner

It's not only your eye area that you need to be extra careful with. You have to be gentle with the rest of your face, too! When using your toner, avoid rubbing and tugging the skin to get all the extra gunk out. Your cleansers should be good enough to get everything off without the extra help.

Instead, pat the toner-soaked cotton pad onto your skin and, when needed, slide gently. Doing this will help you avoid irritation and wrinkles overtime.


3. Cushion puff

The same goes for cushion puffs. You'll achieve a much better result with BB cushions if you use a dabbing motion. This is because rubbing with the puff will sheer out the coverage and might lead to a streaky application.

4. Lip liner

Despite what its name suggests, you have to do more than just lining to maximize the use of your lip liner. You have to fill in your lips a little, too, to deposit more color and achieve a more natural gradient effect. It avoids that '90s lip effect as well. This way, you won't have to work too hard when filling in the rest of the empty space with lipstick.

5. Conditioner

Hair care experts are challenging the classic shampoo-before-conditioner formula. Because apparently, making conditioner the first step is key to nourishing fine hair without weighing it down. According to an expert from a popular hair care brand, condition your hair from root to tip, rinse, then shampoo as you usually would. The suds from the second step will get rid of the slippery feeling, too!
