1. Translucent Powder Lashes
So you’re going to ditch the powder that’s been aging your skin. But you also want thicker lashes, so don’t throw it away just yet. You can use a loose powder to coat and prime your lashes before applying mascara. Only have pressed powder? It’s easy to loosen up with a clean mascara wand.
Use the wand to dust the powder onto your lashes. Apply two coats of mascara, wiggling the wand in at the root. From there, sweep up and inward toward your nose. Use a clean brush to sweep away any excess powder that fell out of bounds.
2. Make your Own Lip Color
Are you unsatisfied with the lip color selection that you have to choose from? Well, try making your own! Just mix some loose pigment (such as eye shadow or blush) with some salve or petroleum jelly, and you’ve got your own homemade lip color! Try it with subtle pinks, or wacky blues. It’s so much fun!
