Hey i thought id start a tips and tricks thread for make up and beauty, i have picked loads of tips up from magazines, experimenting and having a really really bad make up addiction, so i thought i'd share some of mine and you can all share yours!!
Touche Eclat (aka touch your clit)
i use this mainly under my eyes, as it is supposed to, but i also use it on my lips to enhance them. After ive put on my base/foundation, i run it round the edge of my lips and so it kinda blends your lips into your base, then you can use your lipliner to draw just slightly over your natural lip line then put on your lippie/gloss. It'll make your lips look plumper.
To make your nose appear slimmer, after foundation run the Touch Eclat down either side of the front of your nose and blend. you should have your slightly darker natural colour running down the middle, this makes it look slimmer.
NEVER ! use Touche Eclat as a spot concealer, never ever ever! it highlights the buggers!
To keep eyebrows tidy i brush them using a clear mascara.
If i go out partying and have eye make up on i take cotton buds in my bag that have been pre dipped in my foundation. Then when the eyemake up starts to run just get one out and run it under your eyes.
Elizabeth Arden 8hr cream is essential !! how anyone lives without it i'll never know!
I use it on my cheek bones as a highlighter, a lip balm, a dry skin soother, a burn soother, it stops peeling, i use it on my eyelids for a sheen, its a great lip gloss, mix it with coloured powder to make a liquid blusher/eyeshadow it has a million uses, and lasts forever! Well worth the investment!
These are just a few of mine, i'll have a think of some more, but spill all yours!
