I love knowing any beauty-related tips and secrets. I shared some with you in volume one and two. If you are selfishly hoarding some of your own secrets, you better email me at SobbingOnFifth@gmail.com and share them! Include your first name, if I love it I will feature it next month and give you credit!
1.) Get A Natural-Looking Glow
Want to look like you were just tanning at the beach and not like you turned into an orange oompa loompa? Use a pinkish cream blush on the apples on your cheeks and then grab your biggest, fluffiest brush and sweep bronzer all over your face. (Don’t forget your neck and chest!
2.) No More Bubbly Polish
I posted about the Essie Polish Nothing Else Metals and heard from two readers they had a problem with it bubbling! Try this for no more bubbles: make sure that you swipe each nail with an acetone polish remover (even if you didn’t have polish on). Start with a base coat and let it dry completely. When you are using a polish like this don’t shake it before using - the way you would with a regular polish. You can gently turn it upside down a few times to get it moving if needed, but do that at the beginning of the manicure before the base coat and give it time to sit. If you are doing two coats of polish make sure that the first one is completely dry before applying the second coat and make sure each coat is thin – not thick gloppy coats!
3.) Make Your Eyes Pop
Big, open, wide awake eyes? Yes, please. Do your eye makeup however you want – you know your look. BUT when you finish, you want to take a shimmer shadow - gold, pink, silver, whatever you choose - and tap it with a brush onto the ball of your eyelid.
4.) Big, Pouty Lips
The same way you make your eyes look bigger works on your lips, as well. Apply your lipstick, gloss, or whatever you use normally. Now take your shimmery powder and dot your ring finger into it - a little goes a long way. Lightly tap your finger into the center of your bottom lip and pouty, here we come.
5.) Silky, Soft Skin
Winter is drying – you want to make sure you are moisturizing everyday. The best way to do that is to use a body oil AND a body moisturizer. After showering, apply the body oil from the neck down when your skin is still damp. Follow that with a moisturizer from the neck down.
