    Here are a few makeup tips for you!

    *Pressed Powder Foundation

    Using a cotton wool ball, press down and swirl gently in the powder container and then press the cotton wool ball on areas on your face. This helps it to stay on longer!

    *Liquid foundation

    With all foundations, make sure you have the right colour for your skin tone.

    If you want a thick, even coverage then apply the foundation to your face using a cosmetic sponge.

    For an easier but thinner coverage, use your fingertips to blend into your face.

    *Mousse foundation

    Applying with your fingertips is the best way. Did you know that mousse foundation is actually powder?

    *Liquid Concealer

    Apply dots under your eyes in a crescent-moon shape and dab using the tip of your middle finger. Don't rub - this wipes the concealer off!


    Smile! Apply a small amount onto a blusher brush and blend onto your apples in a circular motion.

    Another way of applying it so that it doesn't look so dramatic is to dab on TINY amounts using your finger and rub in circular motions to blend.


    Use a white eyeliner on your bottom waterline to make your eyes appear bigger.

    Using any other colour eyeliner you like, apply just underneath your bottom lashes. Then roll a cotton bud (or q tip I think they're called in America, idk) gently into some petroleum jelly (vaseline) and use it to smudge and blend your eyeliner in. Same technique can be used for applying eyeliner on your eyelids.


    ALWAYS use an eyelash curler BEFORE applying mascara. When applying, apply in a zigzag motion. This helps to coat all the lashes. Remember to use an eyelash brush inbetween coats to make your lashes appear more natural.


    The key is to exfoliate! Roll a cotton bud in some petroleum jelly (like with the eyeliner!), then roll it in some sugar and swirl gently on your lips for 30 seconds, then wash that off and apply petroleum jelly to your lips.

    Hope you found these helpful! :)♥

    ok well the areas to lighten are the inside corner of your eyes and the brow bone, then do a light shadowing in the crease, with a shimmery shadow on the lid. Try to make the whole thing go kind of upwards. Use top eyeliner (thin line) and then, using a black pencil, lightly kind of go under neath the bottom lashes, not thick and not dark, you don't want to be able to see the line exactly. Make it darker towards the outer edge and lighter towards the inside. Use a white water proof eyeliner and apply that to the waterline underneath. This really makes your eyes *POP*

    Just try some eyeliner. I'd recommend a white pencil along your waterline, then black or brown (depending on your hair etc) below the white. A visual example would probably help so you can just find it on youtube.

    a dot of white, shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners, and black eyeliner (liquid or pencil or gel) on the top lashline. maybe if you're blond or fair haired, it would be a better idea to use brown eyeliner as its not as harsh as black. also white pencil eyeliner on the bottom rims/waterline. don't put black or bown eyeliner in the waterline, just dot it between your lower lashes.

    DON'T PUT EYELINER ON THE BOTTOM FIRST OF ALL!!! Try a smokey eye look and some false eyelashes
