Helloooooo Friends! Big smile

Here's our next Tip of the Week!

This week, we're bringing to you.. all the little tips and tricks of make-up! Wink (well... as many as we could find! LOL)

The following are make-ups tips for the eyes, lips and face! Big smile


Your Eyes:

For great looking eyes make sure to use powder shadows for a natural look and a eyeliner pencil for drama at night.

Make sure the liner has a smudge tip at one end to get that smoky eye look.

Only line the top of the eye if you're looking tired. You don't want to bring more attention to dark circles under the eyes.

Neutral tones with a hint of color are flattering on everybody.

For sheen on the eyelids, dab a bit of Vaseline for a pretty reflective quality, as well as moisture.

Open up the eye with a gold/beige shimmery high lighter onto the brow bone.

Don't throw away cash on an expensive eye makeup remover! Find a pretty glass bottle and fill it with baby shampoo. Wink Talk about resourceful! LOL

If your cream eye shadow dries out, use a few drops of water or mineral oil to soften it up again. No need to buy a new one!

Potatoes, like cucumbers, will reduce the appearance of dark, under-eye circles.


Your Lips:

Use blush as a lipstick, then use clear gloss or lip balm over it. This has longer staying power. Wink

Natural ingredients have been used for centuries as makeup: apply beet juice to lips and cheeks as a stain,or mix it with melted bees wax to make your own lip balm!

Use eye makeup remover to treat super dry, chapped lips. It's a great night-time lip treatment!


Your Face:

For a longer lasting foundation try a product with silicone. The silicone creates a sweat-proof and smudge resistant 'second skin'.

A powder bronzer under blush can really even out skin tone. Try dabbing your brush in the bronzer, then into the blush and lightly cover your whole face.

For a new bronzer, use a foundation that is two to three shades darker than your skin tone and apply where you would use your bronzer. In a pinch you could use a brown eye shadow.

Papaya mixed with plain yogurt into a paste makes a great exfoliating mask for all skin types!

Use an egg white mask for a quick fix for diminishing the appearance of pores.



And finally... a general tip from me... try experimenting with your make-up, using it not only for the use it has been made for... but for anything that looks good! Wink

I hope those tips were helpful! Tell us what you think! Big smile
