Another thing I do is use both pencil and liquid eye liner. Draw the line with pencil first for better control and softness; by tracing over that with liquid liner, you get precision, definition and it stays all day.

Great tip, I'm going to try this next time!

that is such a great tip, i just tried it and my skin is glowing!....although, i used a cucumber and ginseng facial mist that i've never used before and i don't think my skin likes it very much, so i'm actually a bit pink and stinging, but apart from that my skin looks great :p. Next time i think i'll try it with some of my avene thermal water, i'm sure that will give me even better results!

To cover undereye circles, I used a technique similar to the buffing above. I have a stick concealer from Smashbox and I put that directly on the skin. I then dampen by my foundation brush slightly and use that to blend in and buff out the concealer. I find that it works the best for me.

I do this too but instead of using a pencil I use a slanted eye liner brush and powder liner, then I trace over it with liquid.

I also moisturize my eyes at night with vaseline (on the lid, below, and on lashes). I'm sure it's not the healthiest stuff but it works!

Also, sometimes I like to apply a bit of eyeliner before bed (I know, this sounds horrible) or before I go in the shower, and when you wake up it's perfectly smudged!

LOVELOVELOVE this thread!

I am a big fan of massaging my face with Bio Oil every night. My face is perfectly clean and pores open after rinsing with hot water, then I take about 4 drops of the oil, warm it on my hands and massage onto my face for about 3-5 minutes. Even if you only manage to do it twice a week it makes a huge difference to your skin.

Also use 8 hour cream to make coloured glitter (am a big fan of black glitter over grey eyeshadow at night) stick to my eyelids!

This is not a very unusual trick haha it's hardly a trick, but it's something I've discovered. I've been using a pencil to fill in my eyebrows for about 8 years now, but after buying this amazing eyebrow kit with shadows and brushes I'm never using it again...^^ I love my banila co. eyebrow kit it's perfect for my gray spear brows..

Love this thread! So many new tips I am so going to try

I use Aquaphor on my lids and undereyes before I go to sleep as eye cream. A magazine editor swears by this stuff and they say the key ingredient in expensive eye creams is in Aquaphor.

Also I use Aloe Vera gel on my face at night.. feels so good and soft in the morning. I don't do it every night but about every other night. Gets rid of rashes, unevenness, and irritation.

I mix my SPF moisturizer with my liquid foundation before I put it on. I get a better coverage and it feels good

I hardly use concealer under my eyes, instead I use a light pearlescent eyeshadow where I have darker skin (which is on the inner of my eyes). But I use a very light hand, not too much, the point is to reflect light where it seems too dark. I find it works for me really well and it looks really natural. BUT it's important to mention that I don't have very dark undereye circles, so I don't know how it'll work for someone with a darker undereye area.


Added this hair related one:
When I want a very, very sleek updo, I spray a toothbrush with some hairspray and brush any flyaways or gaps my original brush may have left. It works like a charm

I use plain rosewater. You can use plain water as well.
