beauty tips every woman should know

In the world of beauty, there's endless tips to keep you looking gorgeous. Here's my top pick.

  1. Always hydrate the skin, moisturising in the morning and evening and coat your skin with a primer before you apply your foundation.

  2. Balance out your shimmer. If you're doing a shimmery eye, do matte lips and vice versa.

  3. To make your manicure last, apply a thin layer of clear polish every two days.

  4. Wear white eyeliner to make eyes appear less red and really stand out.

  5. Use a highlighter or white shadow on the inside corners of your eyes to make them pop.

  6. Take a shimmery gloss to the center of your lips, top and bottom. It will attract light to your lips, giving them a natural poutiness.

  7. To make your cheek bones appear higher, use bronzer under the cheekbone and highlighter on the bone.

  8. Before you blow dry, apply a volumizing spray or light gel to give the roots some lift.

  9. For fuller lips, extend the lip line using a flesh tone lip liner.

  10. Too avoid glugy or flaky mascara, make sure you close the lidafter use to help keep its moisture.

  11. In the summer months, don't be caked down in foundation, instead wear a tinted moisturizer.

  12. Use blotting papers to manage oil and shine in your T-Zone.

  13. When you wear a red lipstick, perfect the shape and colour with a matching liner.

  14. Remember to clean your brushes to avoid bacteria and breakouts.

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

  16. When applying bronzer, start by applying it around the perimeter of your face and follow with a light dusting on your forehead, nose and chin.

  17. Exfoliate before applying self tanner to get rid of dead skin. Tanning products tend to cling to dryer areas.

  18. Get that dewy glow by using a highlighter or illuminator above your cheekbones and browbone.

  19. To contour cheeks, use a matte powder a few shades darker than your skin tone with an angled brush. Blend on temples and under cheek bone.

  20. If you have chipped nail-polish, add crackle or glitter on top to disguise chipping.

  21. Too tired to wash your face at night? Keep makeup removing wipes in your night stand.

  22. The best time to apply creams is after the shower, as the skin has been de-oiled.

  23. To keep hair colour vibrant longer, use shampoos and conditioners formulated for coloured hair.
