  • To give the illusion of fuller and longer lashes apply black eyeliner pencil to your upper waterline.
  • To refresh your makeup after a long day, lightly mist your face with a toner then pat dry with tissue and finish off with a loose powder
  • To avoid fading, smearing or smudging, set your lipstick by blotting through a tissue using a translucent powder.
  • Use multiple face masks together to tackle different skin problems. If you have an oily forehead go for a charcoal mask and a hydrating mask for the dry areas like on your chin.
  • To avoid cracks in your makeup and for a super dewy finish mix face oil with foundation.
  • For a seamless application, warm your mascara under your arm to break it down.
  • If you can’t locate your blush, use your rosy lipstick as a substitute.
  • On colder days, use thicker creams and lighter ones during the hot weather not forgetting your sunscreen.
  • To make your cat eye pop, draw it out with a gel liner then with a liquid liner.
  • Use concealers to neutralize and cover blemishes by using orange tinted concealer to cover under eye circles and a green one to hide redness.
  • For natural looking lashes, apply a strip of lower falsies to your upper lashes. Usually shorter, they will elongate and thicken your lashes without the spidery look.
  • For super smooth lips use your hydrating eye cream on the lips.
  • For a natural looking glow, use minimal makeup and instead go for glow products.
  • To maintain the shape of your eye brows, use a tweezer to pluck. This way you will only remove the necessary hair.
  • If your skin is feeling dry and needs an extra boost of hydration, use some face oil on top of your moisturizer.
  • To correct smudges on your face while applying makeup, dip a Q tip in micellar water and carefully clean it off.
  • Buff mascara that may have transferred to your eye lids using a clean fluffy brush.
  • To make your perfume last longer, apply Vaseline first then spray your perfume.
  • Use a perfecting pen when you want to cover up dark circles for a more natural finish.
  • For precise lipstick application, draw out your lips with a sharp pencil similar in color to that of the lipstick you want to apply.
  • To make your eyes appear larger and brighten them up, use a nude eyeliner pencil on your lower waterline.
