Beauty Tips

Lately I've found so many brilliant beauty tips on pinterest, blog posts and the #bbloggers twitter chat.  Here are a few of my favourites:
  • Pop your finger between your lips after applying lipstick to remove excess & to stop it ending up on your teeth
  • If your gel eye liner or cream shadow has dried up, pop it in the microwave quickly for a few seconds to make is as good as new!
  • Instead of buying a separate brow palette, check which brown shades of of eye shadow you have that might work for you (I love Faint from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette)
  • Check TK Maxx for high end products at a bargain price
  • Put bobby pins in your hair with the bumps facing down to keep them in place for longer
  • Make the most of loyalty cards to save points and eventually treat yourself for free
  • Beauty freebies with magazines are a great way of trying a brand without committing to a full size product/purchase
  • After you have applied your lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips and lightly dust translucent powder over the tissue to make it long lasting
  • To make your eyes look brighter and more awake use nude eye liner in the waterline, curl your lashes and use a light shimmery eye shadow in the inner corner
  • To make sure your perfume last all day apply it behind your ears, at the base of your throat, inside your wrist, inside your elbow and behind your knee
  • Coconut oil has so many uses - buy some!
What are your best beauty tips?
