1. Taking care of your make-up brushes.

Good-quality brushes can last almost a lifetime. To keep your brushes in good condition, follow these simple but effective steps. First, don’t leave your brushes dirty — leaving left-over cosmetics on them can permanently damage the bristles. Wash them regularly using shampoo or mild dishwashing liquid. Let them dry naturally by placing them on a paper towel. You shouldn’t stand them up because the water can irreparably damage your brushes.

2. Don’t redo your make-up; refresh it.

There’s no need to remove and re-apply a little-smeared make-up if you are planning to go out this evening. To soak up the oil and refresh your appearance, apply a thin layer of toner to your face and blot with a tissue. Then dust using face powder to give your skin a velvet touch.

3. Avoid expensive body scrubs.

You can easily make your skin silky and smooth without ever leaving home by making your own homemade body scrub: combine 4 tablespoons of sugar or salt and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. You can also add a few drops of lavender or grapefruit essential oil. Before taking shower, gently massage the scrub all over your body and then wash it off with warm water.

4. Take care of your lips

To apply lipstick perfectly, your lips should be smooth and well cared for. And you don’t really need to buy a special lip scrub for this. Instead, mix together equal parts of brown sugar, olive oil, and vanilla extract. Gently massage the mixture into your lips, then wipe it off with a tissue. That’s it! Your lips are ready for lipstick.

5. Never buy a foundation one shade darker than your skin tone.

You may want a darker foundation for summer. If the one you’re wearing seems too light, intensify it by mixing in a bit of gel bronzer. It’s much easier and cheaper than buying a new tube.

6. Don’t apply too much powder.

Stop applying powder on your face repeatedly while you are putting on make-up. This will help you to avoid a ’cake face’. It’s better to finish off applying your makeup with a powder right before heading out.

7. Finish off your lipstick.

To make your lipstick last longer and to save yourself the trouble of reapplying it every few hours, dust a bit of powder over a tissue and lightly hold it over your lips. An additional bonus: this trick also allows to keep the lipstick off your teeth

8. Getting a perfect ’cat’ eye is easy.

To make your eyes stand out with eyeliner like a pro at home, all you need here is a pencil eyeliner and some scotch tape. Place a piece of tape at the outer corner of your eye at the desired angle and draw a line.

9. Remove excess mascara from the wand.

Here’s a tip how to get long, lush, natural-looking lashes without going to an expensive salon: Take your mascara and a tissue. Glide the brush over a tissue several times to remove any extra mascara that’s built up, and only then apply it to your lashes.

10. Vaseline as a make-up remover

Vaseline can be used as a make-up remover. You just need to put a small amount onto a cotton pad, hold it over your face, and wash it off. This remedy removes even the most tenacious waterproof make-up.
