15 Beauty Tips You Never Knew!

I've compiled a list of beauty tips and makeup tips that I found to be helpful.

1. In a rush? Always define your brows, highlight your eyebrows and tear ducts, bronzing powder and mascara.

2. The lighter the lipstick, the fuller your lips will look.

3. Use a sponge applicator to blend out lip liner for fuller lips.

4. Blow drying your eyelash curler allows for curlier results.

5. Storing nail polish in the refrigerator makes it last longer.

6. Plucking eyebrows after a hot shower or bath makes the experience less painful.

7. Fix Plus from MAC, intensifies your eyeshadow when applied directly to your brush beforehand.

8. Dipping your blending brush in translucent powder before use helps with blending.

9. Putting a touch of lipgloss in the middle of your top lip will make them appear fuller and bigger.

10. Store gel eyeliners upside to increase longevity.

11. Holding a small card along the inside edge of your lashes ensures no lashes bend out of the way from your mascara wand and creates a more professional look.

12. To make sure your lipstick won't bleed, dab a bit of powder on the outside of your lip line.

13. Always buff your foundation and powder onto your face rather for a more natural look.

14. Using an angled brush to fill in eyebrows is easier and more natural on your face.

15. Remember when choosing brow powder: blonde hair needs 2 shades darker and dark hair needs 2 shades lighter.

bareMinerals Brush Shampoo Review

I recently purchased a new brush shampoo from Amazon. It is the bareMinerals Well-Cared For brush conditioning shampoo. It was around $10 and it was shipped for free. bareMinerals also sells it online for $14 however it's in the bottle whereas mine is in the tube but they both hold the same amount of product. I've never used anything from the Bare Escentuals/Minerals brand so I decided to give it a shot. If you'd like to read my review on this totally affordable product, read below!

First Impression: Nice packaging, light product consistency, doesn't take much product to the job

During Use: Fast results, lathers great with average temp water, really gets deep in the brush. You can actually see all of the old makeup wash down the sink.

After Effects: It left my brushes a hell of a lot softer than before, all of the makeup was removed. Brushes dried overnight.

Overall: YES!

Hope you beauties found my post interesting and insightful. Until next time:

Simple Colorful Eye Tutorial

I decided to stray away from neutrals & icy winter colors and go for a easy fun and sparkly look. This look is really simple and easy to create. Read below on how to create the look and the products used. As usual, if you're interested in the product, click the image.

Products used:

NYX Milk Jumbo Pencil

 BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 2nd Edition

 BH Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner

NYX Glitter Liner

I spread the milk pencil over my entire lid.
Began patting the pink onto the inner corner of my eye.
Pat the orange onto my lid up to the browbone.
Begi\an blending the pink and orange together.
Blended the orange into my brow bone.
For the first time, I decided to leave the milk pencil as a brow bone highlight.
Created a perfect winged line with the black eyeliner.
Then went over the black eyeliner with sparkly purple.
I like to use sparkle eyeliner over black simply because I love the way the black shines through.

I hope you beauties enjoyed my post! 
Happy Readings and stay beautiful. Keshia Glam <3
