An application of white eyeshadow to the area above the middle of your upper lip will make the lips appear larger than they really are. The slight shimmer on your top lip will give the appearance of a full upper lip.
When you blend a moisturizer with your foundation, it will apply smoother and will last longer too. The moisturizer makes the foundation lighter so your makeup will not look caked on.

Keep rosewater in your beauty supply kit. Rosewater is a remedy with roots in antiquity. Rosewater has many uses, from soothing sunburn to helping cure allergic rashes. It is the best toner you could use on your own skin. Apply daily after cleaning to tighten skin’s appearance and remove excess oil.

Put your vegetables on your skin. Vegetables have many health benefits when you eat them, and several more when used as a beauty treatment.

Sometimes, when coloring your hair, you may find that the color you chose simply isn’t strong or intense enough for your liking.
