    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!

    *Blusher

    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.

    *Eyeliner

    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.

    *Mascara

    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.

    *Lips

    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! :)♥

    Speaking from a personal point of view, one of the most attractive things a girl can have is self confidence. Just accept that how you look is how you look, and if that's not good enough for some people, live and let live.

    Sure. Just please, PLEASE, be happy with who you are. PLEASE.

    1. Eat healthy. Start by eating your food more slowly. If you inhale your food, no matter how healthy it is, you wont know when you are supposed to stop, & you'll eat way more then you need. Eat more healthy food, too. Toss all the junk food in the pantry, & try eating better when you go out, too. Your best bet is a salad with low-fat dressing, but if you don't like salad, you can find something like a grilled chicken sandwhich instead of a fatty burger & greasy fries. Make prizes for yourself. If you eat right the whole week, you can splurge on a slice of cake on Friday. Soon, you wont even crave the sugar.

    2. Get your sleep! If you are sitting in class with purple bags under your eyes & drool down your chin, you're not exactly going to be the most beautiful sight. Get at least 9 hours of sleep per school night.

    3. Exercise! For some people who are in sports or dance this is easy, but for the rest of us, we need to figure it out on our own. There are so many ways to get fit. Some people go running, some people use workout videos, some people go to the gym, some people use Wii fitness games, hand weights, run up & down the stairs, hike, or just dance around the house like an idiot. Whatever works.

    4. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. The more water, the better. Water brightens your skin, helps weight loss, & makes your voice clear & beautiful.

    5. Get great hair! Get your hair cut at a nice place & ask them for the best way to take care of your hair type. Listen to their advice, but if they try to advertise of of their expensive salon products to you, try to find a more cost effective brand at the drugstore. Take wonderful care of your hair, & don't do anything too harsh to it. If you dye your hair, coat it in conditioner before swimming. Never let your roots show too much since that is so tacky. Do cute things with your hair, but nothing crazy.

    6. Have confidence & self assurance. Don't let other people hurt your feelings, & don't listen to things people say about you, because what goes around comes around. People just say things to make theemselves feel better, because they know you are prettier than them. It's only their immaturity getting the best of them. Don't be a poser it really makes guys annoyed.

    7. Be yourself. Do what do best in school & walk with self confidence, & hey guys aren't everything. The most important thing to learn is to be happy with who you are & to learn to love yourself.

    8. Keep healthy. This does not mean slim or skinny, this just means eating right & exercising.

    9. Remember that less is more. Don't pile on makeup to make yourself pretty; natural is better. If you ant, try using face powder, lip gloss & mascara for school, but don't use full-on eyeliner & lipstick. If you have acne & you want to treat it, buy a cleanser & moisturizer. Ask your doctor for a good brand. If you want to coove it, make sure you use Talc-free & non-comedogenic make up.

    10. Have clean hair. Wash it regularly & invest in good shampoo *& conditioner. Your hair should always be clean & brushed. If you want, change your hairstyle. If you have straight hair, make it wavy or curl. If our hair is curly, straighten it if you want. Bur don't wash it too much as it could dry out. Maybe you could wash it every other day & take a bath on the other days. If you straighter it, make sure you repair it with a good shampoo & conditioner.

    11. Don't have body odor. That really turns guys off. Use a very strong deoderant & take a shower every day. If you want to, use a bit of perfume. If you want perfume, don't buy the cheap kind.

    12. Brush your teeth. Having yellow teeth is, well, not pretty! You should brush your teeth at least twice a day & floss every day.

    sweety you are beautiful but you just doon't think so because girls are so picky on how they look..just curl your hair and put on eyeliner, mascara, lipgloss, and a little blush and you'll feel and look beautiful but remember beauty comes from within. you can't be beautiful if you don't feel it or believe it!! good luck ;)
