Makeup Tips & Tricks!

/ Thursday, April 12, 2012 /
These are some things I've gleaned in my time around the web:

1. Looking for a neutral light brown eyeshadow shade? Use a bronzer! Cheap and effective.

2. Not wanting to buy eyelid primer? Don't have the $20 to shell out for Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance? Make your own with 1:1 ratio of concealer and body butter. Works just as effectively and lasts just as long.

3. You don't have to use a foundation brush to apply foundation! Just use your fingers. It often gives a dewey look that may be desirable.

4. If your eyeliner is not permanent or if your pencil eyeliner tends to smear, lay it over with some powder eyeshadow in a similar shade. This will make it more permanent.

5. Not wanting to shell out lots of $$ for makeup remover? Make your own with 1:1 ratio of olive oil and witch hazel. The olive oil will get rid of your nonpolar makeup, the witch hazel the polar makeup. Cheap and effective.

6. Wash your makeup brushes in shampoo. Remember, makeup brushes are just hair, and what do you use to wash your hair? Shampoo!

7. Always keep your makeup in a dark, cool, dry place. This will extend its shelf life and make it less susceptible to having chemical reactions to sunlight.

8. Always use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before applying makeup.

9. If you get an eye infection or cyst, throw out all of your eye makeup after it clears up. You don't want to get infected again!

10. Use a moisturizing lip balm at night. Your lips will feel phenomenal the next day.

So here ya'll go. Hope these help!
