Papercuts and chapped lips

If you thought lip balm and chapstick were only used for dry lips, think again. If you’re like me and regularly get papercuts, I have a simple tip to help you.

Papercuts heal faster and don’t sting as much if you apply a little lip balm or chapstick on them. It will seal the cut and prevent bacteria from entering the it. Yet another reason to always have on with you!

Draw attention to your eyes

If you’re looking for a way to draw the attention to your eyes, you can try using a coloured mascara. First, you apply a layer of black mascara and then cover the ends of your lashes with the colour of your choice.

For example : I have green eyes, so I tend to use a green mascara. If your eyelashes stick together, like mine sometimes do, just take an eyebrow brush and use the comb to lightly comb trough them. You’ll immediatly see the difference a little colour can make.

Brown eyes look great with earth colours, like green or brown.

Green ones look fantastic with plum or violet.

For blue eyes, you can try yellow or a darker/lighter blue than your eye colour.

People with grey eyes can work with almost any colour and focus on the undertones. ( for example : if you’ve got green undertones, you can use a green mascara.)

Finally, we have amber eyes, which look good with a light blue colour.

Q-tips

I think most women/girls recognise this situation: you have to go to a party and you’ve already spent a lot of time on your make-up, when your eyeshadow smudges or your freshly applied mascara gets ruined when you suddenly have to sneeze. There’s no need to remove everything and start all over again, just take a q-tip and dip it in eyeshadow remover. It allows you to remove your make-up where it went wrong and the rest stays perfect.
