Lipstick Tips & Tricks

1. Pick the right shade.

What most of us do: Swipe a possible new color on the back of our hand to see if it flatters. A better idea: Test the lipstick on your fingertip — that way, you can hold the color next to your face to see how it looks. (No mirror? Your finger is still a better gauge, since it’s similar in color and texture to your lips.)

2. Get buff.

For the prettiest finish, run your toothbrush over your lips to exfoliate any dry skin (a damp paper towel also can do the job). Post-scrub, lipstick will glide on without caking.

3. Fill in fine lines.

Here’s a way to keep lipstick from feathering (a great trick if you have tiny wrinkles above your upper lip): Coat your mouth and go slightly outside your lip line with a clear balm ‑- like plain ChapStick — before applying color. Like invisible spackle, it keeps your lipstick from traveling.

4. Extend the life of your lipstick.

So you’d like your color to last through lunch, but you don’t like the feel of long-wearing formulas? Here’s a tip: Apply a coat of regular lipstick, then press it with a single-ply tissue and powder lightly (over the tissue) with a puff or brush. This sets the color and prevents running and feathering.

5. Plump up.

For a finishing touch, dab the middle of your lower lip with a bit of silver or gold lip gloss. Any makeup artist worth his shimmer powder will tell you this is the fastest route to creating the illusion of fullness. But remember: If you blot or purse your lips, you’ll blur the Jolie effect.

3 Ways To Get Mascara Off Easily

Learning all of the different and natural ways to get mascara off easily can be hard! We know that when we first started to wear mascara, one of the biggest challenges that we had was learning the ways to get mascara off easily! So girls, you asked for it and we’re answering, I’ve gotten together all of the different ways to get mascara off easily and quickly!

1. BE GENTLE

The first thing that we learned when we were trying out all of the different ways to get mascara off easily is to be gentle. You don’t want to tug and pull on your lashes because that can actually make it a lot worse! If you are just gentle and easy with your lashes, the mascara will come off easier!

3. HOLD HOT WASH CLOTH ON YOUR EYES TO LOOSE MASCARA

Before you start any way to get mascara off easily treatment, take a few extra seconds and actually put your washcloth under hot (as hot as you can handle ladies!) and then actually place the hot wash cloth over your eyes. This will loosen up your mascara and will make it a lot easier to get off! Try it – this worked wonders for us!

6. OLIVE OIL

Another natural way to get mascara off easily is olive oil! Just dip your cotton ball in a little bit of olive oil, and rub it along your lashes (after allowing them to heat up with the washcloth of course!) and you’ll see just how amazing this treatment really works!

 

5 Hair Tips For Busy Mornings…

Maybe you shouldn’t have pressed the SNOOZE button four times this morning… now you’re in a rush, trying to figure out how to do your make-up and brush your teeth in the shower. And what about your hair? No worries, my dear. Here are 7 indispensible hair tips for your busy morning. And trust me, there’s no good way to get your eyeliner in while you’re waiting for your conditioner to set

1. USE DRY SHAMPOO

If your hair is a little too greasy to brush and go, try a little dry shampoo at the roots to absorb excess oil and to perk it back up. It works wonders without weighing down your ‘do, and will save all that wash and dry time.

2. LEARN A FEW BRAIDS

YouTube is loaded with tutorials on how to do the most stylish braids, so invest some time now to learn how to do a few.

3. INVEST IN A GOOD DRYER

Save time every morning by investing in a good hair dryer! We recommend Parlux. We know first-hand how helpful this hair tip is… Lots of time gets wasted when cheap-o dryers shut themselves off to cool…

4. GO SLEEK

This super-rushed morning may be the perfect time to try a spy-thriller inspired sleek updo or ponytail. This style won’t work well on a girl with a fringe, but if you’ve got long layers, why not slick them back wet, add mousse to keep the strays in check, and give it a go? We love this hair tip because it’s so fast and easy and just plain sexy!

7. GO BIG!

Flip your hair upside down, spritz with a little refresher spray, tease a bit, then flip back up, finger-comb, and go. This isn’t just a hair tip for rushed mornings, either… do it anytime to add a little sexy edge to your day.

Now that you’ve seen these hair tips for busy mornings, don’t be tempted to ignore your alarm clock tomorrow to see if they work as beautifully as you think they do — save them for when you’ll really need them! Which of these tips do you think will work best, or have you already tried a few? If so, which ones do you rely on most? Do tell!
