Clump Free Mascara

After applying mascara to lower lashes, gently rub a finger along the lashes.
This will separate individual lashes out and get rid of excess clumps of mascara.

The most used beauty product in my makeup bag is my Bourjois Little Round Pot eyeshadow in a champagne like 'beige rose' colour:

...Hence the lack of a lid on my own little pot... hehe.

Anyways, I use it as a highlighter on:
  • the lid of my eye before applying any other colour
  • the inner corner of my eye
  • just under my eyebrow
to help me look more fresh eyed and awake.

Check out the difference between my eyes:

With the highlighting:

...and without:

Keep in mind that this product can also be used:

  1. To highlight cheekbones when used on a fluffy brush to give a dewy appearance to your face.
  2. To define your nose and make it appear thinner by applying a thin line down your nose with a small brush.

Quick and Easy Manicure

Sometimes bare nails tend to look quite dull or develop a yellowy tinge from nail varnish use or just general wear and tear. Clear nail varnish often only adds a shine to this colour rather than helping to make the nail look cleaner and healthier.

My quick solution to this problem is to add a drop of scarlet red or cherry red nail
varnish like this one: a clear nail varnish bottle using the red varnish brush.

Shake the bottle well to make sure the mixture has fully mixed. You should have enough to have turned the liquid a transparent red colour. You should be still able to see the nail brush through the liquid.

Apply one to two coats of the varnish to your nails depending on how strong a pinky tinge you are looking for on your nails and VOLIA!
