If you’re looking for long-lasting eyeliner, consider using a gel liner like, Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner. Or, if you’re not up to buying a whole new eyeliner, you could hold your eyeliner over a lighter for about 15 seconds. Let it cool for about another 15 seconds before using. It will give you that smoother, gel like application like a regular gel liner would.
A white eyeliner makes your eyes appear bigger and brighter, if you apply it on your water line. You could use a liner like Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil In Milk. You can also apply it on your upper lid, and then another color to make your eye shadow more vivid.
DIY Lip Gloss:
You can make your own lip gloss mixing up any loose pigment eye shadow. All you have to do is mix your shadow with some petroleum jelly and ta-da, your own very lip gloss. How simple is that?
To create the most popular, perfect cupid’s bow on your lips, draw an ‘X’ on your upper lip with a liner pencil, and then fill in the rest with lipstick. For a creamy nude combination, you should try the City Color Flawless Creamy Lipstick & Lip Liner Pencil Kit.
For a flawless finish and glowing skin, use Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream SPF 30 PA++. With this cream you will not need any additional moisturizers, foundation, sunscreen or any of that nonsense. This instantly covers up any unwanted spots on the outside to give you and even and radiant skin while working on the inside to lighten dark spots.
If you’re using fake lashes and you’re looking for an even, simple way to apply the glue, you can always put a dab or two on the end of a bobby pin. This way you can control where the glue goes better, which can lead to a more even application, therefore letting your lashes stay on longer.
If you have dry, cracked lips, use a creamy or glossy lipstick, which works as a moisturizer too. It will double up as a lip balm and will add fullness to your lips. An excellent example would be the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream. Matte colors tend to be dry, however, NYX has an amazing formula that puts dryness to a stop.
Better Mascara Finish:
If you’re messy while applying mascara, try holding a spoon against your lashes. Apply the mascara and do not take the spoon away until you believe the product is dry. This will also help give your lashes a curl boost. Using the spoon also helps the applicator between each lash, helping not to create clumps.
Make It Matte:
If you sweat too much, before putting on any makeup, put on a non-scented talcum powder like, Gold Bond Body Powder. Also, carry about a packet of blotting sheets that will help pick up any unwanted oils while keeping your makeup in place.
You may have the better quality make up under your belt, but the most important thing we all have & we could utilize is SLEEP. Being well rested really helps bring out the glow in your face. So de-stress as much as possible and look on the brighter side, it will reflect on your face.
