Brush a dark powder eye shadow onto eyelids and smooth a dab of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on top for a new eye gloss. Instead of investing in a new creamy color, sweep powder blush on cheeks and top with a tiny drop of liquid glycerin or a rich moisturizer.
To have a gloss look lipstick there is no need to junk your old matte lipstick. Vaseline works well on the matte lipstick to give you a glossy finish. You may also apply gloss over your matte lipstick and get that glossy look that’s in this season. To have a trendy nail color, sprinkle any colored powder blusher over your shade of enamel as it dries to give a shimmer to your polish.
Makeup Tip 1) To create a pout enhance center of upper and lower lip line with a darker shade or a lip liner.
Makeup Tip 2) Rub a generous layer of Vaseline onto your lips and around them for a lasting lip shine; also prevents chapping and cold sores.
Makeup Tip 3) Go for a “no-color” eye shadow as a base, like a soft creamy shade “highlighter” and place this on lids up to brow bone. For most eye shapes the dark colors needs to be used on outer eye area and/or in crease. If you use too much, add a little “no color.” or translucent powder.
Makeup Tip 4) Give top and bottom lashes a generous coat of black mascara. Apply mascara to the bottom lashes before coating the top lashes.
Makeup Tip 5) Eyeliner should be applied close to base of eyelashes to make them look thicker. A soft pencil is easier to manage.
Makeup Tip 6) Keep the thicker look to outer edge and with elbow on table for stability, draw the line towards inner corner of eye, thinning as you go. On lower lids, after application, smudge slightly with sponge tip of shadow applicator for a softer more natural look.
