    Use eye shadow primer to make your shadow lasts all day

  2. My fav beauty tip is to not over pluck your eyebrows!

  3. Mariam

    My favorite beauty tip is getting 2 for 1 products. Makes my makeup life so much easier lol

  4. Amy

    Don’t forget to put sunscreen on the backs of your hands – all year, every day. Stave off those “old lady hands”!

  5. Treat your skin well, and your makeup will look all the better for it. Exfoliate, moisturize, cleanse! Dirty, flaky, dehydrated skin doesn’t play well with color.

  6. Rina

    My tip is to get a good nights sleep. It helps you be beautiful inside and out!

  7. Phoebe

    Put eyeliner on before you curl your lashes and put on mascara. That way, if you get any mascara on your upper lid, it will be hidden by the eyeliner…you won’t even be able to see it. Less clean up!

  8. An eyeshadow primer is vital. Don’t use foundation or concealer on your lids, that’s not what they were made for. The primer makes shadows adhere for the long run.

  9. Shari

    My favorite beauty tip is to write on the back/bottom the date that I begin using a new item. That way, I’m always aware of how long I’ve been using it, so I can discard accordingly. After having an eye infection years ago, I’m a stickler.

  10. UmmeLaila

    My favorite beauty tip: NEVER skip the sunscreen

  11. My fav beauty tip is to really massage your facewash for as long as possible before rinsing to really get all the benefits of your cleanser and a great clean!:)

  12. My favorite beauty tip is to keep your skin youth, never go to bed with your makeup on!

  13. I have dry skin, I apply a very little bit of coconut oil under my day cream, and my foundation blends really easily with no dry patches showing.

  14. I never put on lipstick without Paula Dorf’s Perfect Illusion for lips underneath. My lipstick doesn’t MOVE with that underneath and I can make it last 12+ hours without retouching! (And yes, that’s with eating/drinking!) Have to find an alternative though as they discontinued it and I don’t know what I’ll do after I use up the 5 I have left!

  15. Janet T

    Baking soda as teeth whitener!

  16. My favorite beauty tip is to use a slightly damp stippling brush post foundation application with fingers tip for a smooth air brushed finish and no streaks at all.. :)

  17. Buy full coverage foundations over all other coverage levels and use either primer or moisturizer to dilute it to your preferred coverage. You save money because you use less foundation and you can always be sure you have heavy duty coverage when needed :)

  18. doroffee

    I love how you can do eye contour with a wetted powder eyeshadow!

  19. All you need is prefect brows. If you don`t have time for makeup, take the time at least for eyebrows.

  20. My fave beauty tip- moisturizer + q tip to remove smudged eye make up!

  21. my favorite beauty tip would have to be slightly dotting lipstick on your cheeks and blending it out so it matches your lips more naturally 😀

  22. Jasna

    my favourite beauty tip is applying foundation with a wet sponge, it gives you the most natural finish!

  23. Marcie S.

    I keep my under eye makeup from creasing by dabbing the area with a sponge, like a beauty bender, after I spray a setting spray. I love the results and it lasts all day!

  24. Ami M.

    To line your lips before applying dark lipstick.

  25. To not let outer beauty take priority of a kind and genuine heart, although have fun with it!

  26. Lydia

    My favorite beauty tip is to wash off all your makeup every night!

  27. frou

    my favorite beauty tip is using coconut oil as an all-over moisturizer! it’s so hydrating (but doesn’t break out my combination skin) and smells delicious!

  28. Mi.ucha Bordoni

    My favorite beauty tip is to fill in your brows.

  29. Betsy

    My favorite beauty tip? moisturize.

  30. Kimber

    Use avocado oil to remove makeup!

  31. I use mascara as eye liner to get it last on my waterline

  32. Diana Devlin

    One of my favorite beauty tips I learned from a makeup artist was to apply your foundation AFTER you’ve applied your eyeshadow and mascara. That way, if there is any fallout or smudges, you can easily clean it up by applying foundation and concealer once you’re done

  33. Laura

    Neutral eye for work…smokey eye for nighttime fun

  34. erin

    i like mixing a liquid or cream highlighter (like benefit’s girl meets pearl or josie maran’s argan illumanizer) into my primer, so that i’m a little bit glowy all over under my foundation, and then areas that need a little extra glow i can use a highlighting powder for. It really helps look naturally glowing from within.

  35. Gloria

    beauty tip: on a dry day, use eye cream as face cream

  36. The manicure has to be ideal. The varnish on nails shouldn’t be peeled off.

  37. Always remove your make up before you go to sleep :)

  38. Glenda W. (MACupGrl)

    I love placing a makeup remover wipe inside a Ziploc bag in the freezer overnight and then using it as a quick wake-me-up in the morning to help depuff my undereyes:(

  39. Tara

    My favorite beauty tip is do what makes you feel beautiful!

  40. favorite beauty tip: coconut oil everywhere! right after i get out of the shower i rub a small amount of coconut oil all over my face and neck and i feel like im glowing!

  41. my favorite beauty tip is fill in your eyebrows. It defines and adds charm to your entire face

  42. Audrey H.

    My favorite beauty tip is to moisturize before applying makeup.

  43. sara

    Always wash your makeup off before going to sleep!

  44. K

    A good tip would be to drink lots of water, a lot of people neglect hydrating their bodies.

  45. Renee

    My beauty tip is to look after yourself and Your skin by getting plenty of sleep and drinking lots of water

  46. My favorite beauty tip is to always groom the eyebrows, they make a lot of difference.

  47. My favourite beauty tip is actually a skin care tip! Always double cleanse skin after wearing make-up. First cleanse with an oil-based cleanser, and follow-up with a gentle, non-foaming cleanser. I’ve always been prone to breakouts & I have oily skin, but since I’ve started double cleansing my skin has never been clearer (even during that time of the month). First heard it from Caroline Hirons! Will never go back to face wipes alone, etc.

  48. apply mascara really close to the root to replace tightlining with eyeliner!

  49. mlne

    have my brows on!

  50. My favorite beauty tip is to get a beautiful sculpted brows and not over do it with concealer, just use the foundation that is being used on your face under and over the brow and set with some Ben nye powder .

  51. be confident in who you are, no matter what you’re wearing or how you look, be proud to be you.

  52. Diana

    My favorite tip is to use translucent powder under lipstick! Makes it last for soo long!

  53. Raven

    skincare first! :) then makeup :)

  54. Elizabeth

    My favorite beauty tip is using concealer to highlight. Much more natural.

  55. Ombre-effect eyebrows make for a more realistic shadowing, lighter in the center, darker towards the ends. I love playing with bold colors a la QueenofBlending style 😉

    im beginning to think bussy isnt a movement
    its a fucking…

  56. i always moisturize my lips and scrub ’em before applying any lipcolor to make my lips look smooth and amazing! i tend to see many people forget to do this and apply lip color anyway which makes the product sink in the lines!

  57. Best Beauty Tip: Wear Sunscreen year round!

  58. Jules

    I use brand Hollywood oils on my nails before I apply my basecoat. I use either the olive oil or tea tree oil versions & I rub it in and let it mostly absorb, then apply my basecoat of nail polish. So basically, I start my manicure on slightly oily nails & this has helped with peeling & dryness problems. My nails are long & my manicures last a week without a chip just tip wear & this is with any brand polish that I’ve used.

  59. Niki T.

    If you’re going to wear eyeshadow then eyeshadow primer is a MUST!

  60. Cindi

    I always use primer beneath my eye shadows it gives the color much more pop and staying power too.

  61. Kelsey

    My favorite beauty tip is to wait about 10 minutes between moisturizing and priming the face. I find that allowing moisturizer to really be absorbed by the skin and then following with primer allows for foundation to last for hours!

  62. Laurel

    If you have dark brows you need to almost match the color when filling them in so they look natural!

  63. shadow palettes work for me to travel.
