Best beauty tip ever?

What is your favorite beauty tip?
Mine is to use a q-tip to make eyelash longer :smileytongue:

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

I always put my mascara on before I do anything else. I always make a mess, so I can clean up the globs on my lids without mussing the rest of my makeup. After I'm done with my face I give my lashes a second light coat (for some reason that stays relatively neat for me since I'm not trying to coat everything). Been doing it that way for decades.

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

I tried your tip this morning and it worked very well.  I am not very good at applying mascara (I've only recently begun wearing it more than a few times a year), and I always get some bits and globs where they don't belong.  Wish I could apply it neatly, but...

 

So I put on my mascara first today, and it was so much easier to clean up mistakes without messing up any makeup.  Thank you!!!  :-)

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

You are so welcome!

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

Me too! :smileytongue:

One of my favs is to put soft and/or creamy pencils in the refrigerator or freezer to help them harden before sharpening to minimize waste.

I like to apply all my heavy duty masks (clay etc) before a shower, that way I don't have to fight to get them off over the sink. I also put on a thick lip balm before I shower, then when I get out I scrub my lips with my towel to remove all the softened peeling skin.

This is what I do too! I apply all of my rinse of facial products before the shower and take care of it there.

Apply concealer after foundation, it blends more naturally into the skin that way.

Suck your finger after lipstick application to avoid getting lipstick on your teeth!

while we are discussing Qtips, I just learned from my newest favorite enabler (tarababyz) that if you dry your waterline with a Qtip, then apply your eye pencil to ur water line, it stays a heck of a lot longer (clings to somewhat dry surface better than a wet one).

I love using cotton buds for makeup clean-up! I use them to clean any mascara off my lids. They take it off so easily and leaves my eyeshadow in tact!

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

you just use the q tip as if its a mascara wand after applying on your mascara sometime it works and sometime it itches your eyes

 

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

How does that work exactly?

Use the qtip as if it was a mascara wand after applying mascara but sometime it can make your eyes really itchy

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

Yes I want to know how a qtip can make your eyelashes longer!

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

Concealer doubles as my eye and lip primar 

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

Wear sunscreen every. single. day. And no crap about the "my foundation has SPF15"...NO. Actual Sunscreen! Speaking from my mom's experience--such amazing skin that people think she's 15-20 years younger than she is. Seriously!!

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

What if my lotion has sunscreen...?? SPF 30?

 

Or my CC cream has SPF 50?

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

My understanding is that you want at least a 30 on your face, so if it is in your lotion/cc cream, as long as you are applying enough, you're good to go :smileyhappy:

Nude liner in your bottom waterline to make your eyes look bigger and more awake!

Re: Best beauty tip ever?

true that I use white liner :smileytongue:
