Top 10 Makeup Tips & Tricks
What are the beauty issues that women complain about most? Is it hiding wrinkles, covering up dark circles, how to make lips look larger? Here are the top 10 makeup tips and tricks from the latest names in the beauty industry.
Tip #1. You can make any regular, creamy lipstick look matte with loose powder and a tissue. Simply fill in your lips with your desired color, place a tissue over the lipstick and brush powder over top of the tissue. The powder soaks up the shine and gives your favorite lipstick a smooth matte finish.
Tip #2. After painting your nails, dip them in ice water to help them dry faster.
Tip #3. Store makeup wipes upside down (with the opening facing down) to keep them from drying out; each wipe will be thoroughly soaked through for each use.
Tip #4. Sleep on your back to avoid waking up with puffy eyes in the morning and keep wrinkles away in the long-run.
Tip #5. Spray your bobby pins with hairspray so they will hold better and be sure you’re wearing them the proper way — with the squiggly side down — to ensure your hair stays in place.
Tip #6. To make your lips look fuller, apply lip gloss to the center of your lips. Adding a dash of clear gloss in the middle of your lips will give you a fuller pout because the shimmer draws attention to the center, which is the plumpest point. Lexi Noel Beauty has a variety of shades to try, including our clear Diamond Infused Lip Gloss.
Tip #7. To avoid wrinkles and puffy eyes, sleep on your back.
Tip #8. Dry skin. You must cleanse first. Use a moisturizer for dry skin. Exfoliate. Use a makeup sponge instead of a brush. Use a silicone or matte foundation. Don't powder your whole face. Use cream blush. And a highlighter. And a hydrating mist. Lexi Noel Beauty has a whole line of skincare products to help with your dry skin needs.
Tip #9. Dark circles. Try dabbing one of our concealers in a triangular shape all the way from the inner corner of the eye downward and back up to the outer corner, gently patting to blend it down the cheek area to give better coverage.
Tip #10. Redness and dark spots. Try a color-correcting product. Green and yellow help brighten and balance redness; peach will neutralize darkness. Lexi Noel Beauty sells a Tattoo Acne & Scar Corrective Concealer in both shades.
