    When you wear bold lipstick always fill your eyebrows. It makes the entire look really put together :)

  5. Arianna Wissinger

    Make sure to apply chapstick ten minutes before putting on matte lipsticks.

  6. My favorite beauty tip is folioing my lower lash line to flick my winged liner 😀

  7. My favorite beauty tip is to put Vaseline on your lips before bed, so in the morning when you wake up your lips won’t be chapped (this works especially well in the winter).

  8. Elena

    especially for light eyes, using a matte, chocolatey brown eyeliner for a cat eye is much more interesting and flattering, since it’s less harsh but still intense

  9. lukejan

    set my gel eyeliner with a black eye shadow makes my eye liner last much longer. It totally works!

  10. lisa

    Eye and face primer.

  11. Jen

    I make eye shadows do double duty as eyeliners!

  12. I love sephora’s primer!like you wear nothing.

  13. My favorite beauty tip is using primer.

    One tip that everyone knows but is necessary..exfoliate and moisturize your skin so that your foundation looks it’s best.

  17. my favorite beauty tip is that your makeup is only as good as your skin, so before you invest in makeup invest in skincare

  18. Sophie

    My favorite beauty tip is to experiment! Try anything and everything to find what you like best and what makes you feel wonderful!

  23. Always moisturize your face.

  24. Marina Grigório

    Wetting my tip is valuable to be able to recover the lost moisture of the wires and keep them healthy and the gentle rocking!

  25. Alisha Badillo

    My favorite makeup tip right now is wetting my eyeshadow brush before dipping it in the eyeshadow. It works wonders on shimmers.

  26. Exfoliate your lips before applying any lip color, but especially mattes!

  27. I guess that my tip would be to concentrate mascara at the roots/base of your eyelashes & always curling your eyelashes. oh, and taking care of you skin is so important – makeup looks so much better/goes on so much easier when you have the cleanest canvas possible

  28. Jessica

    I see a lot of people saying this but my best tip is primer! Eye primer, face primer, lip primer….Your makeup will look so much better & last so much longer!

  29. its very important to wash your face twice a day, especially after a long day of wearing makeup! its essential to keep pores clean and bacteria from growing!!

  30. My tip would be to use a great eye shadow primer! Also, using a small paint-brush is excellent for cleaning up manicure mistakes!

  31. I love concealer as a quick fix for undereyes, blemishes, or highlighter.

  32. nat

    my beauty tip is clean face and primer , that and keeping it simple can do wonders

  33. My favorite beauty tip is contour and mascara <3

  34. My favorite beauty tips include less is more!, groom those brows!, and lashes are fantastic!

  35. May

    Primer is necessary for the face!

  36. Maple

    My favorite beauty tip is to go over my eyeliner with a dark eyeshadow so it won’t smudge.

  37. Nines

    Honestly…. I don’t really have any exciting beauty tips… Not that I can think of anyways…

    I guess my best “tip” would be to just have FUN with your makeup! Play around with it, try new and crazy colors! But also, don’t feel like you HAVE to walk out the door with bright green eyeshadow and neon pink lips to be “into” makeup, or “good” at it. A gorgeous neutral look is awesome, and if you aren’t comfortable with the crazy colors, there is no reason to force yourself! It’s all about what you love and have fun doing!

  38. When you are putting on eyeshadow, to give your lids more depth you should add a light color to the brow bone. :)

  39. Diana Devlin

    A favorite beauty tip of mine I learned from a makeup artist. She told me to apply all my eye make up first, before doing my foundation. This way, if there’s any eyeshadow fallout or smudging, it can easily be fixed by applying the foundation AFTERWARDS.

  40. Coconut oil removes makeup gentley and is good for the skin!

  41. Julia

    vaseline for eyelashes

  42. Jenni

    Moisturize every morning and night!

  43. Robin A

    Always wear eyeshadow base before applying shadow

  44. my beauty tip is do what makes you happy & feel good. you may not be following the “trends” but as long as you’re comfortable with yourself that’s what matters

  45. Sephora definitely!!!!
