^a lot of brands do green primers. And you can usually get green concealer from mineral makeup brands.

After you've applied your foundation and powder to set, spray you face 2 or 3 times with water but hold the bottle at arms length so it's just a light misting- really makes a difference and makes your skin look dewy and glowing, as opposed to chalky and too matte.

Kleenex brand Moisturizing tissues w/ Lotion also work beautifully as oil blotters and highlighter in one, believe it or not. the tissues when blotted on the face, gets rid of the yucky oil slick while imparting skin with a beautifully subtle, candlelit glow.cheap & chic!

This one may be not really unusual for some people but maybe it is for some others. Well, whenever I apply eyeliner (specially on my waterline) I use a same colored powder eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner, this makes your eyeliner stay put and prevents any smudging. It works wonders, I've spent an entire day with eyeliner without having to retouch doing this.

Ohh, another good one I forgot to mention! When tweezing my eyebrows, I draw the shape I want to get by lining (with a white eyeliner) around the desired shape and I pluck any hair that's outside the line. This prevents over-plucking your brows.

Here's a... bad example of what I said in the previous post... LOL

You shouldn't try to copy the shape I did because... I think it wouldn't look good...

Anyways, you pluck the hairs outside the white line

Thanks for that tip, I'm definitely going to try it

i love using ultra thin eyebrow pencils as eye liner, goes on super fast and precise for a very natural look. the automatic brow pencils tend to go on drier so they aren't as smudge prone as regular eyeliners and don't need to be sharpened. maybelline, mac, clinique, anastasia beverly hills, kevyn aucoin etc make them.

This is my first post, hi everyone! I have a few tips to share...

Use baby shampoo to remove eye makeup. It makes a great remover, even waterproof mascara and is non greasy unlike most others. Remember to use an eye cream afterward though as otherwise it can be drying.

Also castor oil is great to use on eyelashes to make them longer and stronger. Just dab on your lashes with a cotton bud before bed. I don't do this everyday but still see great results. Before my lashes used to fall out often But now they look healthy and long.

^I'd never use soap in the eye-area, the skin is way too delicate...but that's just me I guess

"If a shadow or pressed powder breaks you can add a few drops of rubbing alcohol and press the pieces back together. The powder will reset in the product’s metal pan." I haven't tried this one yet (since I haven't had any accidents with my makeup by now) but it seems like a really good one to try.

I use a baby oil to remove my makeup, such as Johnson's Baby Oil, when I'm running without my make-up remover. It removes even a waterproof mascara.
