Tip of the Week

Here you will find a list of all previous tips of the week! If you have any questions please comment below. 

When you're sampling perfume in the department store, do you spray it on one wrist and then rub them together? STOP!!! When you rub your wrists together you're actually crushing the fragrance, breaking it down and changing the smell! Instead do one spritz on your forearm and let it dry. You'll get the top notes the first 15 minutes, the middle notes in 15-30 minutes and the lingering base notes (the true scent) in 30+ minutes.

Have bronzer but don't know how to use it? Here's and easy tip! Make a capital "E" on each side of your face. Start in the middle of your forehead, work your way around your eye, come in toward your nose, then around your mouth to the tip of your chin. Do that on both sides and then add a quick swipe down the middle of your face. Doing this hits all those hot spots that the sun hits and gives you a nice glow. Just make sure you blend really well! Don't leave the house with a big orange spot on your forehead!

When applying an eye cream, use your ring fingers. They have the lightest touch which is perfect for the delicate skin around your eyes. Also, unless you are sure your eye cream is a gel, apply it to your brow bone and not your eye lids. There is a lot of heat that comes from your eyes and an eye cream can melt into your eyes (ouch!) if applied directly to your lids!

Want thicker, longer looking lashes? Try using a lash primer. It will give something for your mascara to hold on to (i.e. thicken the look/lengthen). It will also help when removing your mascara. It will come off easier and you'll loose less lashes!

Always, always, wear a moisturizer under your make-up. It will actually change the color and texture of your foundation! Don't believe me? Try this: rub a dab of moisturizer on the top of your left hand. Now, take a cotton ball and rub it in your face powder and then rub it on the back of your moisturized left hand AND your UN-moisturized right hand. See the difference?
