Yes, I do. I hope, it can help you.
First you should always wash your face before applying makeup. Use a good cleanser but do not scrub your face roughly but smoothly in circular motion. Pat dry and follow up with a toner and moisturizer. You always want to keep your skin moisturize. Why? Because makeup always sticks better to clean skin and reduce smudging later. I know everyone isn’t financially stable and on a budget. In my own experience high quality cosmetics are better then cheap cosmetics. Better quality makeup last longer and reduce smearing. After use foundation/powder you do not need too much just a little. It’s a good base. Using concealer but I prefer primer. I highly recommend eyeshadow primer potion by Urban Decay. I know it’s expensive but it’s worth it. It’s the best primer. But if you cannot afford Urban Decay primer, another good primer is E.L.F. eyelid primer. It’s very very affordable and in my opinion it’s great, it works for me. Primer helps to keep your eyeliner and eyeshadow from getting smear/smudge. I personally apply NYX jumbo eye pencil ‘Milk’ before applying eyeshadows. Why? Because it’s helps the eyeshadows to stick and gives the eyeshadows more vibrant look. Make sure you’re purchasing makeup that are waterproof or smudge proof. Also know your skin type, it’s very important you know what type is your skin. Is it oily, dry, etc. End of the day, IMPORTANT clean your face, DO NOT GO TO BED WITH MAKEUP ON! Remove all the makeup off your face.
Well, it depends of what type of eyeliner you prefer. Eyeliners: Maybelline lasting drama waterproof gel, TARTE Emphaseyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof liner (ABSOLUTELY AMAZING), Almay liquid liner, Sephora: waterproof smokey cream liner, MAC Superslick liquid eyeliner, and Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner. So many different types of eyeliners but these are perfection!
P.S. Lil’ tip which you may know, but if you do not know, using white eyeliner on your waterline makes your eyes larger and brighter.
Tomato Face Scrub?
It sounds a bit strange but it’s effective! Here’s how a tomatoe scrub can benefit your skin. Alpha hydroxyl Acids and vitamin C in tomato will brighten and soften your face. Licopene is for free-radical. Daily routine using tomato facial scrub makes the top layer of dirty cells peel off to promote your youth.
Lycopene which is found in tomatoes may be the best free radical scavenger among carotenes - it is at least twice as effective an antioxidant as beta carotene. In recent years, a number of studies indicated a variety of health benefits of lycopene, including reduced risk of cancer, heart diseases and other chronic conditions. In addition to protecting cells from free radical damage, lycopene may produce its beneficial effect by other means, such as improving the function of cell-to-cell junctions and some aspects of cell metabolism. Being fat soluble, lycopene appears to be particularly effective in the tissues with high fat and lipid content. It also, reduce the chances of Cancer, Diabetes, and heart disease. It also helps slow down the effect of aging skin. The skin, also a lipid-rich organ, is likely to benefit from high antioxidant activity of lycopene. Theoretically, lycopene’s ability to regulate cell-to-cell junctions might provide an additional benefit of improving skin texture.
Here’s how to create your own Tomato Scrub:
- One ripe organic or regular tomato.
- Cut the slice of the tomato at the top where the stem is.
- Add 1 tsp of sugar on a bowel/plate and take the tomato pad and dip it in the sugar coating it evenly and apply it on your face, in circular motion all over your face.
