Your make-up routine needs a good foundation!

When it comes to your face, foundation is the key; it smoothes the texture and color of your skin.  You should use two criteria when choosing your foundation: Look for a shade that matches your skin color and a formula that complements your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive). There are all kinds of foundation to choose from. Here is a quick breakdown of the most common:

7 steps for cleansing your hair!

Even the best shampoos and conditioners won't work their magic unless you take care.  Follow these simple 7 steps for getting the best cleanse without damaging your hair.

Detangle & brush your hair prior to cleansing!  Starting with tangled hair, then adding water and shampoo can only make matters worse.  The more controlled your hair is prior to cleansing, the fewer problems you'll have when you are finished.  Brushing first will also loosen dirt and oils from your scalp, so you get a really good cleanse.

Black isn't the only eyeliner color!

Chances are, you are like nearly all women.  Check their cosmetic bag and you will find eyeliner...black eyeliner.  But black isn't always the right choice.  Sometimes we want to create a softer or more casual look.  That's when brown is the perfect choice.  A medium to dark brown shade can soften your look and still create an attention-calling eye.  Take a look at the celebrity pix below and see the difference.

File your nails...do it correctly...here's how!

Choose a nail file. Emery boards are the most basic nail file and are a cheap and easy tool for filing your nails. They come in different grits -- the lower the number, the rougher the grit, and the more of your nail it will take away at once. Try to find a file with a grit between 220-300 if you have healthy natural nails.

Blush trick for a flattering, high-cheekbone effect!

Oh those cheekbones!  Once blush goes from mystifying to ooh, I get it now, you really do wonder what you looked liked without it. As the revival of the "draping" technique (AKA contouring with blush) has reminded us, there are a variety of ways to approach blusher.

Most of us were taught to always apply blush starting from the apples of the cheeks and sweeping outwards along the length of the cheekbone. However, for someone who is redness prone, this was actually a mistake. Where ever the brush hits first is usually where you get the most payoff because that's where the most product is deposited. And, if you're naturally flushed this puts extra "warmth" where you might already have it.  Not to mention, tapering the blush at apples of the cheeks changes the angles of the face and contributes to a more feline, Bella-Hadid-like sculpt.

So here's the trick.  Starting further back at the temples and working inward allows you to create a slimmer more lifted and defined effect. In other words, it's an on-the-spot face lift.  This isn't to say that you have to go against the grain and stop showing the apples of cheeks (it adds volume to your face, after all), but the highs of the cheekbone are not to be underestimated!

Concealing those tired eyes

“Why didn’t I go to bed earlier?” Ugh! Dark circles are just the worst. And sadly, because they’ve become a fixture in our lives, we’ve become masters at hiding those zombie-like under-eyes.  But don't worry...we've got them covered!

Depending on the day, you may need a color corrector or something with more moisture or something with even more moisture  But how do you know which one to use?

The Best skin care for your skin type

When it comes to skin care, we've all experienced disappointment.  Quality skin care products can be expensive so the more you know before you buy can better the investment.  Getting the right formulation for your skin will help to insure the product you buy is the product you use and not just another jar or bottle that ends up in the back of the cabinet because you paid for it and don't want to throw it away.

Lips!

Lips are an extension of the inside of your mouth - your mucus membranes.  They have no oil glands or hair follicles to protect them so they don't have the usual layer of sweat and body oils which keep the skin on your body smooth.  This means lips dry out faster and, without special attention, can crack and chap.  The skin on your lips is also very thin compared to the rest of your face.  That is why lips have their natural coloring...
