Sometimes I stop and think about the things I do in everyday life and wonder if other people have the same quirky habits that I do. I wonder if the things I do are weird or totally normal. As I've grown up, I realized that a lot of the things I do are in fact a little weird but everyone has their thing. 

When it comes to beauty habits, I've realized that a lot of people do things very differently; whether it's applying eyeshadow before or after foundation, conditioning your hair before or after you wash your body, and so on and so forth.

I started to think about the things that I do in my beauty routine that could be a little odd, or just different from the traditional ways of doing things and wanted to share them all with you!

*These might seem silly but I know I have more, I just have to pay closer attention to my beauty routines.

Mascara and Setting Spray

This is a habit I only recently developed but one that I can't stop doing. I'm not sure why I started doing it but I've been applying my mascara as the true final step of my beauty routine. I always used to apply my mascara as one of the last steps in my eye routine but found that I liked it much better when it was the last thing I did. I go as far to even apply it after setting spray, that way the mascara doesn't get wet or run after setting my makeup. It's been working for me and there have been no mascara mess ups.

Not Taking Makeup Off Before Shower

When I get home from work, the first thing I do is take a shower; sometimes doing it before dinner. The subway is so disgusting and I feel filthy after coming off of the train so I cannot bear to sit around in my clothes. However, I never wash my face or take my makeup off before the shower so when I get out, my makeup is smeared and I have black eyes from my eyeliner and mascara getting wet. I don't know why I do this, but it happens every day; I think it's part lazy and a part I always forget to take it off before the shower! 

Not Using Foundation Brushes

I've always found that using foundation brushes to apply foundation is very difficult. With the invention of the beauty blender, I find no reason to try my hand at applying liquid foundation with a dense brush. I feel as if the foundation smears everywhere and just lays on top of my skin without really blending in. While the beauty blender is a little tedious to wet and wash with every use, it is the only thing I like using when it comes to creating a seamless foundation application.

Not Using Lip Liner with Regular Lipstick

This is a habit that I am trying to get better at, especially because I've become obsessed with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat liners. I always thought lip liner was an extra, unnecessary step in my lip routine; I never understood the importance of helping it shape and outline your lips until I started wearing liquid lipsticks. I always use a lip liner with a liquid lipstick but don't really do it with regular lipsticks. I love how it looks with regular lipsticks, especially when it's matching like Pillowtalk lip liner and lipstick. It makes your lip look much more pulled together and perfected. I need to get into the habit of applying it more!
