Go light on the eyeliner
When using shimmery shadow, there’s no need to use heavy eyeliner. Instead, apply a thin precise layer of eyeliner to your lids and then dust a little eyeshow underneath your lower lashes. Finish off the look with some black mascara to make your eyes pop and you’ll have a natural glow.
Don’t go overboard
Too much shimmer on your face can be overkill, so if you’re going to use shimmery eyeshadow, make sure that’s the only place you sparkle. Stick to matte foundation and neutral lips when wearing this type of shadow during the day.
Choose neutral tones
While sparkly blue or purple eyeshadow can be amazing for night, it’s best to stick to neutral tones during the day. Gold, silver, copper and taupe can all look amazing – choose the hue that looks best with your skin tone.
Now go on and be effortlessly beautiful! 🙂
1. Olive oil is truly a miracle substance. It helps improve the condition of your skin and reduces your acne scars. Massage the oil on affected parts of your skin every day. It has moisturizing properties that soften the texture of your skin and reduce the prominence of your acne scars.
2. Cucumber is also great for helping to keep the skin smooth and supple. Many different cosmetic beauty products have cucumber as a key ingredient. Also great for reducing acne scaring and outbreaks.
3. Lemon juice improves the appearance of dark acne scars and blemishes by lightening them. Apply the juice directly on your acne scars using a cotton ball. Let your skin soak up the lemon juice for a while before washing it off with water.
4. Ice cubes are used by lots of people to get rid of their acne scars at home. Wrap an ice cube in a piece of cloth and rub it on affected areas for 10 to 15 minutes every day. This should lessen the inflammation on your skin, making it look smoother. This is one of the best natural acne treatment.
5. Water is a great natural remedy to having beautiful skin. Make sure you drink lots of water as this is a great natural way to keep your skin refreshed.

TIPS for False Lashes
“Strip lashes are hard to apply even for me, and I’ve been doing it for 12 years!” exclaims Almodovar. If they’re all you have to work with, his genius tips below will make the process as easy as possible.
- The best thing to do is to cut the strip into halves or thirds so they are more manageable.
- Wrap the lash around a brush at the beginning of your makeup application so the edges can get nice and curled and make sure the glue has settled a bit and is sticky (not slippery) before applying to your lash line.
- Align the cut segments to the inner and outer corners of your eye where you want your lashes to start and end. Almodovar likes to overlap them in the middle to give the center of the eye a little lift and the illusion of a wider open eye.
“Now individual lashes…they’re the best!” says Almodovar. “The trick here is to make sure that each lash is dry on the lash line before applying the one that will lay right next to it.” For foolproof lashes that look great and won’t break the bank, we love e.l.f. Essential Individual False Lashes.
- To give lashes time to dry (and prevent them from sliding around), Almodovar suggests alternating between eyes or corners when applying individual lashes.
- Another great timesaving trick is to get lashes in three different lengths and apply the shortest ones closest to the nose, the medium ones in the center and the longest ones to the outside for most lift. Still make sure you’re alternating lashes, but this way you won’t even need to think about which lash goes where!
TIPS for the eyes
Let’s conquer the cat eye and master the sexy look!
- Step 1: Brush a light shimmer shadow on the entire eyelid, from lashes to brow bone.
- Step 2: Select a crease makeup brush with stiffer, shorter hairs. This allows you to concentrate the color on the crease, rather than diffuse it over the lid.
- Step 3: Use a matte, high-pigment eyeshadow for your crease color and load only the very tip of your brush with it. Drag—don’t dot—the color just above your natural eyelid crease. Otherwise the design won’t be visible when your eyes are open.
- Step 4: Dampen a cotton swab with makeup remover and clean up any jagged edges. After the cleaned areas have dried, go back in with your base color to further refine the look.
