Applying Eye Makeup

The best way to apply eye makeup is to put a mirror in front of you on a table and look down your nose into the mirror. You can see more of your lid at that angle and you can control the stroke.

Pencil or Liquid Eyeliner

If you line the inner rim of your eyes, use a pencil rather than a liquid liner, which is more likely to contain bacteria. Self-sharpening Glimmersticks Eyeliners is perfect because it creates a new, clean, surface each time you use it. Restrict liquid liner to the base of your upper lashes and the outer edge of your lower lashes.

Note: Glimmersticks Eyeliners are an Avon product.

If you prefer baths to showers and have dry skin, soak for 10 minutes before you add bath oil. First your skin absorbs water then the oils seals it in. Try the classic, SKIN SO SOFT original Bath OilTowel dry and smooth on Skin So Soft Replenishing Body Lotion immediately. The opportunity to half evaporation of moisture from skin only lasts about three minutes.

Powder or Cream Blush

If you usually wear powder blush, consider switching to a cream during the winter months. In the cold weather, your skin needs moisture as well as color. Try Beyond Color Mousse Blush.

Makeup Remover

No matter how exhausted you are always remove your mascara before you go to sleep to keep your eyelashes from drying out and breaking. Perfect Wear Makeup Remover makes the pre-bedtime drill a snap.

Lines or Wrinkles

Always apply an anti-aging product such as Anew Clinical Line and Winkle Corrector 10 minutes before your moisturizer or sunscreen. The active ingredient should always be in direct contact with the face.

Chipped Nails

The most common reason for a manicure to chip within the first 24 hours is that the polish wasn't completely dry. The first thing to do after applying your polish is to spritz your nail with Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray. And don't shower for at least six hours. The heat may cause the polish to soften and smudge.

Lipstick Beauty Tip

Many women steer clear of dark lipsticks because they seem hard to wear, but the right shade could make you look healthy and brighten your complexion.The Trick is in the Application: Intense colors look freshest when they are just dabbed on with the fingertips or with the very light touch of a lip brush to soften the edges.Since dark shades tend to clump around dry flakes, begin by exfoliating your lips with a damp cloth. Rinse and dry.

Apply clear balm such as Beyond Color Lip Exfoliator and let it set for 5 minutes.Warm the tip with your fingers to soften and apply lip liner pencil to the whole mouth, not just around the lip line. Apply lipstick such as Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick 15 with your finger. Blot and apply a second coat. You'll find 20 shades of Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick to choose from.
