Beauty Tips & Tricks

 Does your skin seem more oily then others? MOISTURIZE!
Drying out your skin will actually cause it to produce more oil. The skin naturally tries to correct itself, therefore if it feels dry it will try to balance the situation by producing more oil, continuing the vicious cycle!

Adjust where you hold the brush. The closer you get to the bristles, the more pressure and pigment you apply onto the skin. the further back you hold the brush the lest amount of pressure you will apply. Helps for blending

For Yellow Nails
If you get yellow nails after months of wearing dark polish, try scrubbing your toenails with a nail brush and whitening toothpaste. It gets rid of the yellow color. Try it and you will end up with minty fresh toes

Apply perfume directly to the skin. The "pulse points" are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air.. The inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. Don’t rub your wrists together so as not to break the perfume’s molecular structure.

Prevent blisters and stinky feet with antiperspirant. Sweaty feet cause blisters because of the combination of moisture and friction, especially if your shoes are too big, tight or wide. Using antiperspirant creates a barrier between your feet and socks or shoes to decrease friction and prevents sweat glands from producing moisture. How to use it: Roll or spray antiperspirant on your soles and between your toes. Also, wear socks made of fabrics that wick sweat away from the skin – microfiber works well – and make sure your shoes fit properly

DONT Zap zits with toothpaste!
Toothpaste is drying because of its alcohol and fluoride, so it may seem to help clear up a pesky pimple.
But “fluoride can actually cause more breakouts and acne, and today’s toothpastes are stronger and have so many added ingredients – like bleaching and whitening agents, which can burn skin,” says Francesca Fusco, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.


Clear Your Chin Complexion
If you've got a recurring breakout on your chin, the harsh hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste could be the culprit causing irritation. Switch to regular toothpaste pronto and see if things clear up


A great mascara is important, but you can take extra care of your lash as prep. Apply Lubricants for eyelash growth. Eyelashes get dry at times. Try lubricants such as olive oil, Vaseline or vitamin E which is widely known to stimulate growth of hair. Keep eyelashes moist at night when you sleep and as a result could enhance growth.

 Try this next time you are applying your mascara or even your shadow

 Under your eyes, use your ring finger, go from the end of your eyebrow toward your nose or you'll encourage wrinkles.
Dab on moisturizer instead of rubbing it in under the eyes.
♥ When moisturizing your neck, rub up instead of down to not cause sagging



Wearing rubber gloves to wash dishes will keep your hands from drying out. Do double duty by putting lotion on your hands before putting on the gloves and let the hot water "cook" that lotion deep into your skin


 Cold weather can = dry and Itchy skin! so keep your skin supple and hydrated with awesome products from MaryKay and lots of H2O!


Avoid using towel wash cloths to remove your makeup. your better of washing and rinsing your face twice. all that rubbing and tugging from the towel can irritate the heck out of your skin and push your makeup into your pores instead of taking it off!

Always allow about two fingers width from your nose to where blush starts for the perfect application. To make your cheek bones appear higher, use bronzer under the cheekbone and highlighter on the actual cheekbone.

For the summer months, you don’t want to be caked down in foundation so try a tinted moisturizer instead.

If you don’t have nail polish remover, apply clear nail polish over and then wipe off. It will remove old polish.
