White Eye Shadow Makes Eyes Stand Out
White eye shadow is a great choice if you really want your eyes to stand out. You just have to layer your lid with white eye shadow and then add the colors that you want. The white will also keep those other colors from rubbing off before the end of the day and you can even add white to the top of the lid by the brow to really make your eyes pop.

Use Mascara as Eye Liner
If you have run out of eye liner and you are in a hurry, you can use your mascara instead. Just rub an eye liner brush over the mascara brush and then line your eyes. This works well if your mascara is the same color as the eye liner that you typically use and even if it’s not, it will help you to get your eyes lined in a pinch. The mascara will wash off your eye lids just like it does off your lashes.

Apply Concealer in a Triangle Shape
Concealing dark circles and bags under your eyes is much easier when you apply concealer properly. Instead of dotting on concealer in the pattern of your eyes, apply it in a triangle shape. Just dot it on under your eyes and blend downward in the triangle shape. It will perfectly cover up those dark circles and bags and give you the look that you want.

Make your own gel eyeliner
Gel eyeliner is a great way to make your eyes look smoldering and gel tends to last longer than traditional eyeliner pencils. If you notice that your eyeliner rubs off or smudges before the end of the day, you can use gel eyeliner in its place. The problem is that gel eyeliners can be a bit more expensive than pencils. So, just make your own. You just have to take a lighter and carefully heat the end of any eyeliner pencil to create gel eyeliner that looks great and will last all day. Via – Thebeautydepartment
Ochre gives a professional look
When you really want your eye shadow to look professional, you can use Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre before you apply your eye shadow colors. Brush on a coat after you have applied primer but before you apply color. It will help to smooth out the shadow and keeps it put for the entire day so you have fewer worries of your eye shadow rubbing off.

Great Graduated Manicure
Graduated manicures are all the rage and they are so easy to do, if you know how. Instead of spending hours applying each coat of color, just apply them all at once. You will need a few makeup sponges and the colors that you plan to use. Just paint the pattern that you want on the makeup sponge and then press it to your nail. Instant manicure that’s really easy to do and will ensure that the pattern is the same on every nail.

Set Lipstick to Last
Lipstick tends to rub off, smudge and otherwise not look as great at the end of the day as it does when you first apply it. You can remedy this problem with a tissue and a bit of translucent powder. After you have applied your chosen lip color, just hold a tissue over your lips lightly and dust just a bit of translucent powder over the tissue. This helps to set the lipstick so that it lasts longer.

Make Your Own Lip Venom
Lip Venom is a tad expensive and you don’t necessarily have to shell out $20 to look like you have. You can just add a drop or two of peppermint oil to your favorite color of lip gloss and get the same results. You can pick up peppermint oil at any natural food store and many grocery stores have it as well. Just add to your lip gloss and mix it in well to get the same results as Lip Venom without the cost.

Get Longer, Fuller Lashes with Baby Powder
You don’t have to wear false lashes to get that long, full look. You can achieve the same look by simply dipping a cotton swab into baby powder and running it across your lashes after you have applied a coat of mascara. Then just apply a second coat of mascara and it will adhere to the powder, giving your lashes a much longer and fuller look.
