hey thanks for hosting this contest!

hmm id say my top tip is; for those of you with dry skin is to moisturise!! its no secret but it definately gets overlooked, countless times i have seen iv seen people with dry and dead looking skin with caked up foundation and its defo not a good look!! SO moisturise is a number 1 must!!

Just on a side note, got my henna done the other day, i found the colour is alot darker when you apply some lemon juice over the mendhi and let that soak - works a treat!!

Hey! Great Contest!
One of my top tips is that when I have just painted my nails and need them to dry quickly, I dip them in a sink of very cold water for about 2 mins and then pat them dry and the vranish has set! Also, I don't only use vaseline on my lips, I also use it on my eyelids to make them really soft.. On my eyelashes to thicken then and on my cuticles to keep them soft and easy to gently push down!

Amazing giveaway! I really like the idea of sharing tips.

Do you have a product you swear by? Allure by Jen's Iced Peach shadow. It's my perfect eye brightener...I love it! Even on the no makeup days, I still wear it.

Is there a trick you picked up somewhere that you would like to share? Always apply all of your makeup going UP towards your hairline. It sounds weird but its like a mini facelift.

Do you have a tip all women should know? Don't follow the rules, think of yourself as an artist and your face is your canvas!

Thanks for the contest!! My beauty trick would be to use oil like coconut oil for the hair. Apply it at then end only (not on the roots) and leave it for few hours or even the whole night and then do your shampoo normally! Cheap and effective! ;-)

My top 3 beauty tips:

1) As InnerBelle said, moisturize, but even more important than that is exfoliating. Get that dead skin of your skin surface!
2) Moisturize your body immediately after a hot shower, while your pores are still "open" - get that lotion deep into your skin!
3) Don't forget your brows - pencil them in, brush them straight, and trim when necessary!

Congrats again to 100!

One tip I love and use a lot lately is certain blushes/bronzers could also be used as an eyeshadow.


Shifa on September 21, 2009 at 3:57 PM said...

Hey congrats gurl :)
your blog is lovely ♥
I belive all you need to look gorgeous is dewy fresh skin, some mascara and a hint of blush ~ you dont need to cake up to look good as the beauty within will show :)

Hey, I'm your 101st follower! ;)

I am all for natural acne remedies and I've been trying this remedy with lemon juice. Simply apply fresh lemon juice to your face for about 5 minutes everyday. I hope it will help with the overall condition of my skin!

great contest :) congrats on 100 followers!

Do you have a product you swear by? I personally swear by the MAC Face & Body Foundation. It's very light, but still covers, which is absolutely perfect for everyday wear.

Is there a trick you picked up somewhere that you would like to share?
I got this from a youtube guru. Spraying Fix+ on foundation brush helps it look smoother!

Do you have a tip all women should know?
Oatmeal and Honey is a GREAT face mask! It's natural, and it gives a lot of moisture to the face without making it oily.

I like to wear a layer of sheer mascara on top of the black.. it seems to clump less and last longer! I also agree about moisturization being very important! Thanks for this great contest!

Thanks for this contest! :D

When it comes to covering up dark undereye circles I've found that using a colour corrector first to neutralize, then a light concealer over top of that is the best way to get rid of them.

A product I can't live without is Lucas Papaw ointment. It's the best lip balm you could ever use, can be used on the eyebrows to keep them in shape, and has a variety of other uses.

Hmm, what's my beauty tip. You would already know this.. but for the non-makeup artist..

Q-TIPS ARE MY BEST FRIEND. They're the greatest blending tool, clean-up tool, touch-up tool, etc. Use them!

+ my ultimate favourite moisturizer -- HOPE IN A JAR by Philosophy. It's amazing for all skin types. May be on the pricey side but a little goes a long way. All you need is a dab on your finger and your all set. It works on all skin types, making you moisturized but never oily and your left with an amazing glow. Even after about a month your skin will look firmer and feel softer. It has lactic acid in it which helps to exfoliate the skin.

Hope this helps!!

xoxo LELO

Urban Decay Primer Potion...Never looking back!!

Is there a trick you picked up somewhere that you would like to share?
Cut a slant into the top of a business card and use under your eye while putting on mascara to prevent from smudging!!

Do you have a tip all women should know?

Use a towel turban to dry your hair and by the time you've applied your makeup your hair will be half dry and you've cut your drying time in half!!

My tip is so always exfoliate lips, once a week is good. Wet a washcloth with warm water then sprinkle a little brown sugar onto the cloth and rub in a circular motion over lips. Rinse, then apply your fav balm.

I also LOVE the Clarisonic Skincare Brush, it's a little pricey at nearly $200, but it's awesome for your skin and helps reduce redness, minimize pores, and it removes 6x more makeup than regular face washing. I love my Clarisonic!

Thanks for the lovely giveaway, girl! :)

I learned from Paula's "Beauty Bibble" that we don't need different moisturizers/creams for face and eye area as they are basically the same stuff. I stocked up on eyecreams last time they were on sale, but when I'm done with them, I won't be buying more.

I blogged here:

I assumed you could get my email from my profile, but here it is :-)

I swear by Smashbox photofinish, for a sleek face.

I am kinda a make-up newbie. I am loving mac products and am always at the counter asking how to do this and that. I love rockin' the #7 lashes, but am too scared to put them on myself - ha ha!! My make-up collection is slowly growing, but I am having fun getting my stay-at-home mama self all glammed up!! :o)
