Is your mascara getting way to clumpy way to soon? Well, fear no more! We have a solution to your problems! Saline Solution!
If you find that your mascara is getting thick and hard to apply and you don’t feel like spending your pennies on a whole new product then all you have to do is put a few drops of saline solution into your mascara and mix it around with your wand. This will break up the mascara and give it a smoother substance. However, you must be careful when putting it in. Try mixing it with every new drop you put in or else you will end up with liquid eyeliner and a really weird applicator to go with it.
Looking for Kardashian style eyelashes, but don’t feel like buying the new Dior heated eyelash curler? Well worry no more! We have a quick easy tip to get you those Kim-K lashes!
All you need is a blow dryer and a eyelash curler!
Before you curl your eyelashes hold your blow dryer about 6 inches away from your eyelash curler.
Make sure you have it on high heat. Hold it there for no more then 10 seconds, and then curl those lashes!
Christina and Anna here, bringing you our make up DONT YOU DARES! If you find any of these looks in your daily routine, you should probably rethink your regimen, or your life. Whatever comes first.
#5. Not blend-able
First off, why? If you’re going to go through all the effort of applying multiple eyeshadow colors, why not take the time to make them look good? Clearly Miss “Jerseylicious” Olivia Sharpe is heavy handed with her makeup applications. When blending try to have a light touch, and blend out where shadow looks heavy. No matter how long it takes to blend, it’s worth it. You don’t want to look like Olivia.
#4. Overly concealed
We’re sure when Eva Longoria left her house she had more of a “Natural highlight” look instead of a “Pocahontas on crack” look we see here. Putting on that much concealer with the papparazi on her tail is a rookie mistake. When being photographed keep the concealer minimal. However, if you like this look, then continue to use concealer as warpaint.
#3. D.T.M.(Doin’ too much) smokey eye
Let’s start off by saying we hate everything about this look. This smokey eye must have came straight from the flames of hell, because this is just God awful. Using black eyeshadow from your lid to all the way IN your eyebrows is not a good look for anyone. Tyra Banks’ awkward lipstick color and not filled in eyebrows just add on for the most perfect terrible look we have seen in awhile.
#2. Pencil thin eyebrows
Filling in your eyebrows with a pencil is completely acceptable! Shaving your natural eyebrows off to use a pencil to draw them on, is one of the grossest things we have ever seen. But then again, Christina Aguilera never fails at making us feel uncomfortable. Whether she’s wearing bootyless chaps or rocking an afro bigger than her whole body, she seems to be a shoe-in for every top 5 DONT we ever make. Ladies, please keep your beautiful eyebrows. Maintain them weekly and fill them in with pencil or shadow. Don’t be weird.
#1. Hola Chola
Wearing a lip liner darker than your lipstick will only end with you looking like a chola or sleazy former playmate now rockin Hepatitis C. If you don’t feel confident in your lip liner matching decisions we recommend using a colorless lip liner. Colorless lip liner’s will help your lip stick not feather outside your lip-line. It will also help you not look like Pamela Anderson, which should be a life goal for all of us.
Are your long & beautiful lashes messing up your mascara? Do you finish off your makeup and realize there is mascara all over your top and bottom lid!? WE DO TOO.
As we all know, once that happens, the next step is to try and clean it off. So that’s when your makeup gets smudged, or makeup gets in your eye and you start crying. Then, there you are half of your makeup is cried off, and everyone is asking you whats wrong.
Well stop crying! We have found a solution! A really simple solution that you will not believe you didn’t think of!
When applying your mascara, tilt your head back and chin up. Your eyes should be squinting at this point, so that your lashes are the farthest from your top lid. After that, just go about your business and apply that mascara!

Is your skin so busted you’re actually thinking of getting a chemical peel?
Don’t do it! Instead of risking your skin looking like Samantha’s and feeling like someone just threw acid on your face try this at home remedy instead!
1. Mash up 6-12 non-coated aspirins and combine with freshly squeeze lemon juice.
2. Let the aspirin dissolve until it turns into a paste.
3. Apply the mask to your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.
4. Remove the face mask by dipping a cotton round in some baking soda and some water.
The aspirin has salicylic acid which helps to remove acne and pimples since it is like a chemical peel. The lemon juice has vitamin C and helps minimize sun damage to your skin. Baking soda works great at the end to neutralize the salicylic acid.
Do you have an eye shadow color you can’t live without? How about throwing it on your nails! Watch this video and learn how to make your very own personalized color!
Lip plumpers never work for you? Us either! Were tired of wasting our money on products that don’t work! Benefit’s lip plump is a joke, and elf’s plumper is always sold out, so we decided to make our own plumper.
Apply a small amount of cinnamon powder on your lips .Cinnamon acts as an irritant and plump up your lips. Wait two minutes and apply lipstick or lip gloss. Screw you Scarlett Johanson, we’re gonna fake it till we make it!
Want to extend the shelf life of your makeup brushes up to twenty years?
You should clean your makeup brushes after every use with a daily cleaner for many reasons. The biggest reason is the oil, dirt and old makeup that builds up on your brushes which can contribute to breakouts and irritated skin.
Cleaning your brushes daily is great for your skin but thoroughly cleaning your brushes weekly is great for your brushes!
Mix a small amount of baby shampoo and warm water in a bowl, dipping just the bristles (try to avoid getting the furrule wet so you do not loosen the glue of your brush). After you have submerged the bristles, run brush under warm water until the water runs clear. All that’s left is laying them out to dry and voila you’re done! Good brushes are expensive, so taking fifteen minutes out of your week to have your makeup brushes last you years is totally worth it!
