Eleven Beauty Tips and Tricks

  1. Accentual your eyes  –  You have to put your eyeliner on the inside rims of the top and bottom of your eyelids – on the waterline — the area more near your eyeball. With this trick you can use a white pencil on the waterline with the dark pencil on the lash line to make eyes appear larger.  Or a dark pencil on the water line to make eye color pop.Eyeliner on waterline
  2. Eye base/eyebrow shimmer: Apply a shimmer from the base of your lids all the way up to the bottom of your eyebrows. It’s a great way to make your eyes pop and accentuate the color of the eye shadow that you choose to wear for the night. And as a bonus, the shimmer hides stray eyebrows until you get the chance to tweeze.
  3. Eye lift: I just love highlighters! Draw an arch directly above your eyebrow with a highlighter, blend with your finger and it will look like you’ve had an eye lift!
  4. Eyebrow pencil lift: If you need to work on the shape of your eyebrows, you can actually change the way your face looks by altering the shape of your brows with some pencil work. Simply color in a new design by focusing on the top portion of your eyebrows — not the bottom.
  5. Mega lashes: If you use a lash curler, here’s a trick that no one seems to remember. Heat your curler for a few seconds with a blow-dryer. No more than five seconds. This one, small step will give your curler a long-lasting effect.
  6. Contour your nose: You can make your nose look smaller by using two different colors of foundation. First, apply foundation that is one shade darker than what you normally use on both sides of your nose. Then, blend onto your cheeks. Finally, choose a lighter shade and apply it to the bridge of your nose — that’s the thinnest part. Blend, and you are done!face contouring
  7. Contour your face: Use the picture to contour the outside of your face.  Some experts also recommend drawing a “3” on each side of your face.
  8. Exfoliate your lips: The winter can dehydrate your sensitive lips.  One way to get our lips ready for the latest matte shade is to give your lips a good scrubbing prior to heading out for the night. You can use a face exfoliating scrub, gently scrub for a few seconds.  You could also use sugar mixed with a little olive oil to create an all natural scrub.
  9. Blushing cheeks: It’s really about the apples of your cheeks. Dab your choice of color on the center, and then use your fingers to blend the color up to your temples.
  10. Lip foundation:Apply some foundation on your lips and then add your lip color on top of this base.  The lipstick will last longer and the color will be closer to the shade that is in the tube.

  1. Start off with a lip stain: If you are planning a full night out with friends and don’t want to worry about having to reapply your lipstick over and over again, start with a lip stain. It won’t necessarily give you the full color that you started off with before you left the house, but if will ensure that you have some color on your lips all night long. Try to top the stain with lipstick in a matching color. We are loving the NYC brand of lip stain for the price and the quality.
