Make your own tinted moisturiser 

Simply just mix foundation and moisturiser. I go with a 50/50 ratio but you can use more or less of either depending on how much coverage you want, its really up to you!

Use your wrist to match your foundation colour

Use the inside of your wrist to see what foundation colour is best for your skin tone

Increase your concealer coverage 

Leave your concealer dabbed on your face for a few seconds to let it slightly set before blending, this will give you a bit of extra coverage. 

Use sticky tape for winged eyeliner

Can’t do winger eyeliner? Just use sticky tape! Get some of the glue off by sticking the tape to your clothes or hand a couple of times then line it up with the outer corner of your eye and the end of your eyebrow. Draw a line, peel the tape off and there you have it; super straight and sharp line! Then you just join the line up and fill in the wing.

Long lasting lashes

Just pop your eyelash curler under your hair dryer for a few seconds to heat it up and make your lash curl last.

Avoid mascara smudges with a spoon

If you always get more mascara on your eyelids that your lashes,  guard your lips by placing a spoon over your eyes when applying mascara 

Tight line your eyes 

Give your eyelashes a fuller look by lining your upper lash line.
