The Best Beauty Tips of All Time

Draw a line with cream shimmer down
the bridge of you nose. The Highlighter
reflects light, creating the illusion of a
straighter sniffer.

Dab your pout with peppermints oil.
It’s an instant lip plumper, setting
Off a small allergic reaction
That causes swelling.
-David Bank, Mount Kisco,
NY, dermatologist
Affix adhesive butterfly Bandage
closures to facial lines before bedtime
to stop yourself from frowning in your sleep.
-Francesca Fusco, NYC

A fast and inexpensive fix for
Greasy hair: Combine equal parts
Baking soda and baby powder,
Sprinkle over hair, and then brush.
The baking soda helps remove
buildup, and the baby powder
soaks up excess oil.
- David Babail
Before putting on mascara, dust
Lashes first with a translucent
powder to add instant volume.
- Tasha Reiko Brown-Jovel

Apply black mascara, then tip the
ends of your lashes with a mascara
in plum or navy to make the whites
of your eyes look brighter.
-Brett Freedman
L.A. makeup artist
Keep separate hair and face
towels so the oil from your scalp
doesn’t cause breakouts.
- Amy Wechster, NYC dermatologist

Always keep a sheer golden lip gloss
in your makeup bag. It instantly
warns up any lip color and gives you
a brand new shade.
-Anthea King
For a creamy eye shadow that won’t crease,
use waterproof eyeliner pencil. Draw over the
eyelid, the blend with finger.
- Jake Bailey

Add a few eye drops to dark eye shadow.
The drops are Mess-free and sterile, which
Means you won’t introduce dangerous
bacteria into your makeup.

Applying Eyeshadow Under the Brow

Thanks for stopping by today! The eyes are the main focal point of the face. Eyeshadow is used to accentuate the color of the iris for a natural look and to hide flaws. To learn how to use the proper tools and techniques to apply eyeshadow under the eyebrow keep reading.

Choose eyeshadow colors that complement your skin tone, eye color and hair color. Fair-skinned women should avoid bold, bright colors and choose a pale palette. Women with a darker complexion and hair color should opt for deeper colors.

Apply eyeshadow with the proper makeup brushes. Eyeshadow Brushes should have soft but firm bristles. The bristles come in different shapes. Choose a brush based on the part of the eyelid where you're applying the color. Use round-bristled brushes when you apply makeup under the eyebrow

Brush a light color of eyeshadow from the inner corner of the eye up to the brow bone. Follow the arch of the bone to highlight the brow.

Blend the brow color gently downward toward the crease of the eyelid. Use your fingertips to blend the colors, as the natural oils on your fingers aid in blending. Go Here to accentuate your eyes.

Tips to Achieve Fuller Longer Lashes

Great Day! There are numerous ways to thicken eyelashes. When these methods are used in combination, they can create the fullest, thickest eyelashes possible, with maximized volume.

Curl your lashes with the eyelash curler. Clamp the lashes as close to the base as possible. Be gentle so as not to pull out any hair or pinch your skin. Open the curler and repeat as you move out toward the tip of the lashes.

Now close your eyes and dust loose powder over your lashes with a fluffy brush. This will absorb oil, make mascara stick better and help thicken the lashes.

Apply mascara starting at the base holding the brush horizontally, start at the roots and wiggle the brush back and forth in a horizontal motion while coating the lashes from root to tip vertically. Do this several times, creating four or five coats. Make sure you get the little lashes in the hard-to-reach corners also. Use a lash comb to separate the lashes.

Another way to lengthen eyelashes is to attach individual fake lashes from the outer edge of your eye going in, leaving some space in between one lash cluster to the next. You may want to use only a couple at the ends or continue until roughly around mid-eye, depending on the degree of drama you seek. When lash adhesive dries, stroke some mascara on the tips of your newly applied lashes to match the black of your natural lashes.
