Smoke and Mirrors
Smoky shadow makes for a sultry, eye-popping look. Get the perfect “smudge” by drawing a double coat of liner with liquid and pencil on the top of your lid and inside your lower lash line. Smooth a thin coat of petroleum jelly over the lid, close your eyes and squeeze them tight. The pressure will distribute the makeup evenly. Touch up any stray smears with a clean cotton swab and finish with dark, black mascara for the ultimate smolder.
Sweeten and Soften Lips
Smooth a little bit of pure honey on dry lips. It works better than regular balms to keep extra dry lips at bay so they’ll be softer, tastier and even sweeter smelling.
Find the Right Hue for You
To try out a new lipstick shade, rub a little of the color on the pad of your fingertip. It’s more accurate than testing on the back of your hand since the skin on your fingertip is closest to your natural lip tone. You’ll also be able to hold your finger up to your mouth easily to see if the color really suits you.
Control Unruly Brows
Smooth disorderly eyebrows with a clean toothbrush or mascara wand. Comb in diagonal, upward strokes following the natural direction of hair growth. Follow up with just a touch of lip gloss to keep them in place all day.
