  • Foundation should never be heavy. Apply liquid foundation with a damp makeup sponge for best results.

  • Replace mascara and liquid eyeliner after 3-4 months.

  • For smudge-proof eye makeup, take blotting tissue to remove any oil or any excess makeup from the eye area. Then, apply a small dab of cream concealer to hold things in place.

  • To prevent hair color from fading, use a conditioning treatment weekly or bi-monthly.

  • In order to keep eyeliner from running and smearing, opt for liner formulas that offer stay proof wearability

  • To make your manicure last, apply a thin layer of clear every two days. Pay particular attention to the free edge at the top of your nails, where chips usually happen and apply extra clear polish there.

  • For makeup that lasts all day and night, use a makeup-sealing product like a setting spray.

  • For fuller lips, extend the lip line using a flesh tone lip liner. Be careful not to go overboard.

  • For acne-free skin, look for a cleanser with salycilic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

  • When choosing a red lipstick, you just want to remember to get one that looks good with your undertone.

  • To make a zit go away faster, don’t pick at it. The bacteria on your fingers will create more redness, and any attempt at popping will make things worse.

  • Use an exfoliator to get rid of dead skin, but limit yourself to 2-3 times a week so you don’t dry out your skin. Use a gentler scrub on your face and a coarser scrub on the rest of your body.
