Beauty Tips

Lips

Do you have a favorite bold shade of lipstick that you are afraid to try? Try it! If you don’t like it mix in a little lip balm to tone it down!

Small Lips
If your lips are small, they will look fuller if you apply lipstick and then a touch of shimmery gloss.
You can also extend your lip line by using a nude tone pencil, just be careful not to overdo it!

Cheeks
Did you overdo it with your blush application? No worries, just dust on a light translucent powder or blend with a cosmetic puff.

To contour cheeks, use a matte powder (a few shades darker than your skin tone) with an angled brush. Blend on temples and under cheek bone.

Hair

For an all day long scent, spray a bit of your favorite perfume on the bristles of your brush. Run it through strands and your hair will smell great all day!

To make curls last, make sure hair is completely dry before you begin with the curling iron.

Eyes

Too small eyes
The trick is not to line with definition, but rather to slightly blurr, or smudge with a q-tip.

Spot Treat Smudges
Dip a cotton swab in eye-makeup remover, and trace it along your lids to erase any slipups or goofs when there’s no time to redo your whole look.

Flaky Mascara
The biggest reason for this may be that the formula is too dry or too old. Make sure you close your mascara properly after each use! The best rule of thumb is to replace your mascara every three months.

Primer

When using a primer on your eye lids, place only where color will be.

Concealer

A common mistake is to think that a lighter concealer gives more coverage. The fact of the matter is that too light of a shade will leave whitish rings around the eyes.
