Fill in frown lines
Fill in any laugh lines with highlighter before you apply foundation. It helps create an even base for your makeup.
Powder your lashes
Lightly brush your lashes with face powder before applying mascara. The powder and the mascara will form a paste to temporarily thicken your lashes.
"Tightline" your lids
Use the makeup-artist trick known as tightlining: Apply black eyeliner underneath upper lash lines and between upper lashes to make your lashes look fuller.
Highlight your peepers
Dab a little highlighter or apply a cream-colored eye shadow in the inner corners of your eyes – near the bridge of your nose – and just under your eyebrows, along the brow bone. It will catch the light, making eyes appear wider.
Prep your lips
Color bare lips with a lip pencil that matches your natural lip color before applying lipstick; it will help the color adhere. Or, press some rosy eye shadow on top of lip balm for all-day color.
Gloss over lip areas
Put a dab of clear lip gloss or petroleum jelly in the indentation in the center of your upper lip and in the center of your lower one; it will make both look plumper. Picture perfect!
