Dull Face -
I've discovered that after you're done putting on all your make-up, apply a little bit of baby powder with your brush to give your face a radiant glow. Don't put on too much or else you'll look pale. A little goes a long way.
A great way to take off make-up is with baby oil. Just dab a little on a tissue and swipe across your face!
Instead of using lip gloss that doesn't last long enough, rub a thick layer of petroleom jelly (e.g. Vaseline) onto your lips and around them. This is great for winter as well because it prevents chapping and cold sores.
How To Pluck And Shape Eyebrows
Always follow the natural shape of your brow. Begin by brushing your brows up and back. A good rule of thumb to follow so you don't lose the arch in your brows is to pluck from underneath on the outer arch and from up above on the inner part of the arch.
Use cornstarch. Use it in moderation or you can look too white.
Long Lasting Eyeshadow
If you want your eyeshadow to last all day long simply apply a thin layer of concealer ( Maybelline works good for me ) before applying your eyeshadow. It will usually last you for 24hrs
