Then apply translucent loose powder with a brush over this thin thickness of handkerchief.
The right dose will pass through the fibers. Your lipstick will have a matte finish and the color will last twice as long.
- Mascara on the lower lashes before the upper lashes
If you regularly find yourself with mascara smudges above your eyelid, this beauty tip is for you. It’s a mistake we’ve all made with mascara: when you tilt your head forward and open your eyes wide to apply it to the lower lashes, the upper ones – which are not yet dry – come up.

Once your hair is completely dry, scrunch it all together with your fingers and lacquer for better hold.

For a better hold, prefer satin or semi-matte textures with more glossy finishes. This technique has its advantages and disadvantages.
The advantage of this technique? No more thinking about coordinating your blush with your lipstick. Disadvantage? This method is not recommended for the oily skin, which will prefer powder blushes for better hold.
- Massage your face with
