    Eyeshadow primer makes a world of difference!

  8. Valerie S.

    Invest in a good quality eyeshadow primer!

  9. Zachary Paca

    My all time beauty tip that I preach left and right is to PRIME. So many guys and gals think it’s useless but no matter your skin type, there’s a primer for you. Once you find the primer for you, your oiliness or dryness or uneven texture or whatever the problem may be will be smoothed for a long day of flawless face.

  10. My beauty tip: use a good moisturizer!!

  11. Christa

    My fave tip is to apply foundation after fallout prone eyeshadows. So much easier to prevent sparkly/dirty looking cheeks!

  12. Lauren

    My favorite beauty tip is to fill in your brows. It really frames your face.

  13. My little tip is, in the winter, when my skin is super dry, I put on moisturizer and then a thin layer of vaseline before bed. Skin is smooth and moisturized in the morning!

  14. Dila

    I make coconut oil hair mask with an egg white wrap your hair wait 30 mins.. take a shower boom shiny, soft hair

  15. Firstly, I logged in something like 6 times and I’m still being forced to respond as a guest.

    Second, My ultimate beauty tip is to wash your face twice a day… it makes SUCH a huge difference for me. You can see the difference when I don’t. It gives me beautiful glowing fresh skin, and reduces breakouts monumentally.

  16. xamyx

    Wear colors that are suitable for your coloring, personality, style, etc., not just because it’s on-trend, or looks pretty in the packaging.

  17. my favorite beauty tip – when in a hurry in the morning, I only use a highlighter in my inner corner and under the browbone of my eye. The eye looks bigger and more fresh! And this really works!

  18. My absolute favorite beauty tip: Wear sunscreen no matter the weather!

  19. Cui

    Use eye shadow primer to make eye makeup last longer.

  20. Samantha

    Drink lots of water.

  21. My favorite beauty tip is to give your skin a break from foundation at least once or twice a week – it needs to breathe! :)

  22. Justine

    There’s no need to shower daily if your skin doesn’t need it (e.g. in winter).

  23. jaclyn3090

    Invest in a good eyeshadow primer. Creased eyeshadow is never flattering, so ensure that your shadows will stay in place by using a primer. Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance is my favorite :)

  24. Just entered and shared on my facebook page, Stylishly Social (scheduled post for tomorrow morning)! Thanks!

    Lansinoh brand lanolin for dry, chapped lips or even a light coating before lipstick application. No more dry lips.

  26. Flourine

    Use a damp q-tip to remove mascara from the upper waterline – an absolutely necessary step for sensitive eyes!

  27. Jordan

    My favorite beauty tip is to take care of your skin! A lot of people don’t do all of the steps that they should (exfoliate, moisturize, use SPF, etc) but it makes a huge difference.

  28. I liked Claire Marshall’s tip of using highlighter first and then blush.

  29. Shana

    I use Olay wipes to clean my iPhone every day — I started doing this when I noticed I was getting pimples along my jawline, and they’ve mostly gone away.

  30. Heather L

    Mascara is a must!

  31. Alix

    Use Aquaphor for really chapped/sensitive lips!

  32. SILVIA

    Def do not leave the house without eyebrows done!

  33. Oil your hair before washing it! I heat up some olive oil and put it into my wet hair, then I’d clip my hair up and continue showering, shaving, all those things and lastly I’d wash my hair with shampoo, I recommend doing it twice to eliminate any oily residue and didn’t even put conditioner on. You’ll have shiny hair. Also when I did this my hair grew super fast!

  59. Alia

  60. My favorite makeup trick is wearing mascara only on the outer 3/4 of my eye – it makes them really pop!!

  61. Laura

    Favorite beauty tip is to always curl your lashes. It really opens up the eyes and makes you look that much more awake.

  62. always fill in the brows even if you’re not wearing much makeup

  63. Samantha V

    Be sure to remove all makeup before going to sleep.

  64. Jackie Cummings

    Put on your eye makeup before your face makeup to avoid ruining your under-eye area with eye shadow fallout.

  65. My beauty tip is retinol. I began using it at 24 so that I prevent any signs of aging and reduce the worry lines on my forehead. I cannot resist: my second beauty tip is bangs for girls like me (or guys) who have very sparse, almost non-existent, eyebrows. Of course I fill them in, but sometimes it can look unnatural, so bangs help conceal that.

  66. There are only about a bazillion ways to wear this lol!!! I love this palette and love Kat Von D’s products. She rocks!!! thanks for the giveaway!

  67. JudiC

    My makeup tip is “when in doubt, less is more.”

  68. Seana Campbell

    One of my favorite beauty tips is for oily skin, which I have been plagued with all my life. Apply a thin layer of milk of magnesium or Monistat ant-chafing gel to your face before foundation It acts as a wonderful primer that controls oil and shine.

  69. Wear sunscreen! I swear that is what’s kept my skin looking so good for all these years. And a light, sheen-y eye shadow on my lids when I’m feeling tired never fails to make me look bright and fresh.

  70. stephanie barnet

    Use a primer! So many people don’t and it gives you such a nice, smooth canvas!

  71. AudreyNZ

    Sleep well.

  72. Mandy

    I use almond oil on my face before I shower. Leaves me with a hydrated face ready for make up.

  73. I wear lip balm under lipstick and lipgloss! It keeps my lips from drying out, sheers lipstick out a bit, and keeps me from noticing how sticky the gloss is!

  74. BooBooNinja

    My beauty tip is to fill in your brows — it makes a world of difference!

  75. Ashley

    I absolutely LOVE using a flat liner brush and a shadow to line my eyes, and to make my lashes look thicker. I mainly use this on my ‘no-makeup-makeup’ days, or the days I wake up late for a quick, and easy look.

  76. Linda

    Make sure you get plenty of sleep and cut way down on the salt to minimize puffiness
