FOR TIRED EYES:
Ah~~~ How many times we get up with red or puffy eyes? Try blending a creamy concealer onto your lids and into the inner corners of your eyes before you apply any eye makeup. This will give your shadow a base to stick to and conceal any redness. Just a light application will have you looking well rested, even when you’re not.
Long, fanned-out eyelashes also instantly make eyes look well rested. Try this wide-awake tweak by makeup artist Jessica Liebeskind: Using mascara, sweep middle lashes upward toward brows; inner corners, toward nose; and outer lashes toward temples. Always choose black — darker hues offer the most definition. And skip lower lashes; undereye smudges make you look wiped out.
TO GET RID OF CROW’S FEET:
It’s okay even if you don’t have a peptide-pumped eye cream on hand. To tighten skin, tap lip balm onto the area around your eyes. The deep moisture keeps skin smooth. Avoid balms made with petroleum; it can cause foundation to cake.
TO MAKE LIP COLOR STAY PUT:
Apply lip primer or concealer, and then line the lips with lip liner that is a similar shade as the lipstick, which helps reinforce the color and finish off with your lip stick or color. Matte lips last the longest, but if you are choosing a hydrating gloss or top coat of gloss, then make sure to press the color onto your lips before applying the last coat.
TO ERASE WRINKLES:
Cover your face with a towel soaked in hot water for 10 seconds, then spread on a thick layer of cream or a moisturizing mask. “The heat swells pores, allowing the line-plumping ingredients to sink deep into skin,” says FITNESS advisory board member Howard Murad, MD, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California at Los Angeles. Cut and place pieces of plastic wrap over cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead to seal in hydration, and remove and tissue off after a few minutes.
TO FAKE A GORGEOUS GLOW:
Mix one part foundation with one part liquid illuminator, and then use your fingertips to massage it all over your face. Top it off with a dusting of a light-reflecting shimmer powder.
There you have it! Quick and easy, right? Try them next time.
