I use baking soda to exfoliate my face and lips, leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh! Merry Christmas Christine and thank you for a wonderful year of reviews and swatches and giveaways! <3

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.

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!

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.

Hi Kelsey!

Let me know if you still have this issue… we can’t replicate it on our end to test, but we implemented a possible fix (since we can’t get the same thing to happen, we can’t test if it’s still happening!).

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!

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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.

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!

I keep a small bottle of makeup remover on my vanity for quick brush cleansing and fixing eyeliner mistakes. I would love to play with this palette …..

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Favourite tip that I always follow is good skin care! Always cleansing thoroughly to remove all makeup and hydrating and protecting my skin every day πŸ™‚ We only have one skin!

Grab your eyelash curler, line it the top of it with a black kohl eyeliner pencil, then squeeze in on your lash line, hold for 30 secs and release! Perfect liner everytime

One of my favorite winter beauty tips is to put coconut oil on your face before you shower/shampoo. It prevents the hot water from drying out your skin.

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.

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!

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.

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!:)

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.

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!

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 πŸ™‚

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!

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!

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

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.

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:(

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!

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.

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 πŸ˜‰

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!

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.

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!
