1. You neglect to prep your skin.
You simply don't slap foundation on freshly washed skin. You need to hydrate your face first for smoother makeup application and to prevent foundation from caking throughout the day. After moisturizer, use a primer to even out your skin's texture. This step also helps your foundation cling on your thewhole day.

2. You test makeup under the wrong lighting.
The lights in the store may fool you into thinking that you've got the best match for your skin tone. Checking your foundation in natural lighting is still the best way to find out if you've found your match. Try it on a small area of your face in the makeup counter, wait a few minutes for your foundation to settle on your skin, and step out to examine the shade comparison.

3. You're too lazy to blend.

Girl, there is no shortcut to a flawless, airbrush-like finish—you really have to blend, blend, blend. To make things easier and faster for you, use a dense buffing brush to seamlessy blend your foundation.

4. You skip the setting spray.
Aside from powders, setting spray is vital to seal in your foundation. Plus, it removes the masky appearance that foundations usually give, making the finish look more skin-like and natural.
