Kevyn Aucoin said this in one of his books. When you put a colour on yourwater line,… close your eyes very hard directly afterwards, then the colour goes a bit more into the roots of your eyelashes. I personally really like his advise.

I do this everyday, because I feel like my makeup is not finished without that brightness in tearduct. I got this beauty tip from makeup artist Molly Roncal who use to do Beyonce and now sells her own stuff on QVC.

To eliminate puffiness under the eyes to the best of your ability, wrap an ice cube in a face wipe or makeup pad and dab for about 5 mins. The coldness from the ice will slow the blood flow in that area, and therefore the puffiness will slowly vanish from lack of circulation.

Then, apply the eye cream of your preference, and pat in using your ringfinger (as this applies the least pressure to the delicate skin).

Apply a creamy concealer to the whole eye area, to conceal any redness, veins, or dark circles. When applying concealer always look up, so it does not nestle into the fine lines that are right under the lashes.

Credit goes to a great youtuber!! (i’ve forgotten what her name is….)

Misting your face in the heat of the summer really helps set it and keeps you refreshed!

I just did my first full makeup tutorial! Thanks for the inspiration! =)

I just learned about press on eye shadow. I know its like cheating but its been kinda cool to prep, press, and go!

I finally learned how to properly do a smokey eye ! and any kind of crease color(s). I didn’t know about all of the different brushes you should have or what the techniques were.

Tightlining was the coolest thing I learn in the past year. And believe it of not Bronzer. I was always scared of it. It warms my Olive skin nicely.

Me too!! sometimes I get carried away and have to blend in a little MORE foundation lol so that the color matches seamlessly.

I’ve never been into using a toner and always thought of it as unnecessary but I learned that using a toner really helps to get off the residues of makeup and cleansers when it is swept over the skin with a cotton pad. The gunk that’s left on the cotton pad! I’ve used a toner everyday ever since.

MA taught me this over the weekend. I just learned to use a bit of red lipstick to cover up dark eye circles as a base, then apply your concealer and setting powder. Obviously not something to do everyday but for really special days where you have the time. I was surprised that it worked. I have to try it myself and see if I can do it on my own.

i’ve seen it done (xsparkage has a video about it on youtube) but she used orange lipstick..she mentioned MAC Morange. I personally like a yellow based product.
