Top Make Up Tips

Apr 5, 2008
Mascara

* To prevent smudging, wipe off any excess mascara from the wand before use.

* Don't match your mascara colour with your eye colour.

* For full lashes that don't stick together, use an eye lash comb, or a damp toothbrush to comb through your eye lashes.

* To make mascara stay on your lashes for longer, brush some foundation powder over your lashes before applying mascara to them.

Eye Shadow

* Test the eye shadow on the back of your hand to see how it appears on your skin tone.

* When mixing eye shadows, mix them well to give a uniform colour.

* Apply foundation to your eye lids first to avoid the eye shadow creasing.

Powder

* When using loose powder, choose a colour that closely matches your own skin tone, or to create a warmer glow, pick a powder that has a slightly pinky hue.

* For a dash of glamour, try using a powder with reflective pigments, giving you a subtle shimmery glow, perfect for nights out!

Foundation

* If you have an uneven skin colour, or imperfections, you may wish to use a concealer after you have applied basic foundation. Try to use this sparingly, and for extra precision use a makeup brush.

* If your foundation has become thick or is getting old, it can be rejuvenated by mixing it with moisturiser before application.

* During the summer months, skin tends to need less coverage and so you may wish to only apply foundation to specific areas rather than an all over base, to even out colour. For a lighter base, try using a tinted moisturiser instead.

* To keep your foundation flawless and skin looking soft and fresh, finish with a dusting of transluscent loose powder on your forehead, nose and chin, using a large soft brush.

* For an added healthy glow, lightly dust cheekbones with bronzer or blusher in a sweeping motion.

Nail Care

* Tap your nails on a hard surface every day. Tapping your nails has been shown to stimulate nail growth.

* Moisturize your nails and your cuticles to keep your nails looking young and healthy.

* Keep your nails clean with a good quality nail brush.

* Don't cut your nails too short, or let them grow too long. Cutting them too short can lead to nails receding, and leaving them too long will leave you prone to breaking your nails. Ideally nails should be filed to just beyond the end of your finger tips.

* Use a file to shape your nails, and a buffer to smooth away imperfections.

* Remove nail polish every 4 - 5 days to let your nails breathe. Applying too many coats of nail polish on top of each other can cause the nails to dehydrate.

Cuticle Care

* Apply moisturizer to your cuticles often, this will help stop them from lifting up and looking ragged.

* Apply cuticle removal cream to your cuticles at least every couple of days.

* Don't cut live cuticle skin. Only remove dead cuticle tissue. The removal of cuticles should be painless.

* Hang nails can be removed with cuticle scissors, cuticles should be pushed back with a cuticle pusher.
