Makeup Tips for Eyes, Lips and Face

Your Eyes :

1. For great looking eyes make sure to use powder shadows for a natural look
and a eyeliner pencil for drama at night. Make sure the liner has a smudge
tip at one end to get that smoky eye look. Only line the top of the eye is

3. For a new bronzer, use a foundation that is two to three shades darker
than your skin tone and apply where you would use your bronzer. In a pinch
you could use a brown eye shadow.

4. Papaya mixed with plain yogurt into a paste makes a great exfoliating
