    ReplyDelete
  145. My tip is to heat your eyelash curler just for a few seconds with the hairdryer. It works amazingly!

    ReplyDelete
  146. There are so many but the main thing is to really invest in quality skincare products. Do not over-exfoliate but do use BHA/AHA acids and moisturize. Oh, and one for us with hooded eyes: matte shadows are your best friends but don't forget inner corner highlight, tightline instead of trying to pull a cat eye and use nude pencil on your waterline.

    ReplyDelete
  147. If you have hooded eyes, try shading the outer edge in an upward motion-almost as if doing a cat eye with the shadow-to lift the eye. You will use a dark color in the outer edge and work inward but only to right above where the pupil is with this color, fading it onto the upper loud and down into the crease to blend with your crease color. Make sure it is not a "hard edge" as a cat eye would be, because this is the shadow and you want an easy soft look. Finish the inner bottom kid with a soft, glowy shadow to make the eyes pop. To make sure the shadow stays on, be sure to use a primer before applying any eyeshadow.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I wish I could say I had a tip, or even two maybe, but sadly I am still a novice in the makeup department.
