Using too much makeup. “I see more and more women wearing more and more makeup. Though I’m a huge supporter of wanting to look the way you want to look, I’m concerned that a number of women are simply following an Instagram trend. To me, that much makeup doesn’t even look good in pictures with professional lighting, let alone in full daylight or under fluorescent office lights.” —Beau Nelson, who works with Nicole Richie and Christina Hendricks
OD’ing on brow pencil. “One trend I’ve been seeing that is bad is what I call the stencil brow. It has hard, square edges and an unbelievable arch. The brows are a vast mountain of little hairs. The best way to draw them on or fill them in is to use a lighter color than your hair and use featherlight strokes in the direction your hairs naturally grow. And it doesn’t need to be the same opacity everywhere—usually the brows are more transparent on the inner edges.” —Quinn Murphy, who works with Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge, and Olivia Palermo
Using way too much foundation. “One thing that I’ve noticed lately is women using foundation that’s too heavy for their skin. In my opinion, the beauty of a makeup look is showcasing your radiant skin. I like to use a lightweight tinted moisturizer and spot-check with a fuller-coverage concealer. If you get shiny, carry oil-blotting papers to keep the skin fresh and radiant.” —Vincent Oquendo, who works with Ciara and Uma Thurman
Matching your foundation to the wrong part of your face. “One common mistake is matching your foundation to your cheeks and jawline. This often makes the face and neck two different colors. Instead, test foundation on your neck or collarbone to find the perfect match.” —Mally Roncal, who works with Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez
