  1. Natural and face friendly

  2. I just discovered Micellar water and love using it to remove my eye makeup!

  3. Sunscreen is my makeup tip! Keeping your skin safe from the sun prevents aging and sun burns.

  4. Julie Pelton says

    My tip is to wash your face at night and then use a good nite cream. It helps you age with grace!

  5. Kristi Fox says

    My tip is to never be afraid to try something new! With so many wonderful products, companies and trends don’t ever get stuck in the rut of one tried and true product, step outside your comfort zone to instantly make any old makeup routine fresh and fun again!

  6. Ashley Lee says

    My Makeup Tip: If you have a beauty blender, make sure to wrap it in a clean paper towel after each use to avoid mold and mildew. It also keeps your beauty blender smelling much better and it pro-longs the life of your beauty blender, saving you more $$$!

  7. A summer make up tip is to wear a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. It has good coverage and feels so much lighter than foundation on a hot, summer day.

  8. Jennifer Schad says

    Your eyebrows are sisters not twins

  9. shannon fowler says

    my favorite beauty tip is to always take advantage of free makeovers. stores and representative will often do a free makeover if you buy a certain amount of products. you can learn so many new techniques and get some great ideas of new products

  10. Skip the tightlining, use a dark brown powder instead and fade it out into a subltle cateye to make your eyes look bigger
