#1 Layer Your Liner
I have always wanted to try liquid liner but have been too chicken for the very reason listed in this tip! I am definitely going to try it now!

“If you’re not a professional makeup artist, it can be difficult to line those eyes, but then again liquid liner tends to stay on longer and smudge-free. So what I do is, I line my eyes first with a pencil liner because it’s easier to make that straight line with it. Then I go back on the line with the liquid liner. It’s kind of like coloring! The result? Your eye liner will stay on, smudge-free, and well-lined.”

#2 Soft and Sexy Eye Makeup
Black liner on top….brown liner on the bottom. Who knew something so simple could make such a difference?

“For an eye look that’s defined but not too heavy, line your upper lash line with black eyeliner and the bottom lash line with brown eyeliner. This is one of my biggest makeup artist tricks for beautiful, soft eyes!”

-Mally Roncal, celebrity makeup artist

#3 Warm Your Eyelash Curler
This one just makes TOO much sense not to try! :-)

“Run your eyelash curler under warm water (or blast it with your blow drier for a second) before using it for a considerably curlier result that lasts!”
-Alexis Wolfer, editor-in-chief of TheBeautyBean.com

This made total sense to me. I have always maintained that my hair is easier to style a couple of days AFTER washing!

If you have flat, baby fine strands of hair, an aerosol can of dry shampoo is essential for pumping up the volume. Women who are blessed with hair to spare use it to sop up oil between blowouts, but I like to spritz it straight onto clean roots daily. (Klorane is my absolute favorite brand, but there are some great drugstore options out there, too). The fine blast of powder adds texture and what I like to call “grip” to give my style staying power—and more importantly gives me lift that lasts all day!

#4 Sea Buckthorn Oil . . . the good oil!
I hadn’t ever heard of this oil until my sister told me about it last week. She’s a believer…and now maybe I will be too!

“Flawless skin is everyone’s best beauty asset. Apply a drop of omega- and antioxidant-rich sea buckthorn seed oil on blemishes to speed up healing and see more perfect skin by morning. It’s amazing!”
