When wearing matte lipsticks you want to always make sure to exfoliate your lips with a tooth brush or lip scrub either the morning of or night before. Also try to use a good lip balm at night so you wake up with moisturized lips ready for matte lipstick! You might even want to apply lip balm 30 minutes to an hour before applying lipstick and pat off the lap balm before applying any lip color. :)
Try lipsticks like
Maybelline Matte Lipsticks $6. These are very new so you might not find the new Maybelline Matte’s line in stores yet but keep an eye out! The formula is matte but still creamy, very impressed!
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipsticks $5. Also a more creamy, light weight formula.
Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks $1.99. These arent completely matte, they dry to a more satin finish. These are extremely moisturizing and creamy without looking glossy or shiny. Such a steal!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams $6. These go on more creamy and dry to a matte finish.
Yes and no, it all really depends on how much care you take when applying and removing false lashes! When wearing false lashes you risk pulling out and losing some eye lashes. The glue can stick to your natural lashes and pull them out when removing the false lash.
To remove false lashes without the risk of pulling out your natural lashes is to go in with a cotton swab with makeup remover and loose then glue at the base of the false lashes. The makeup remover will help break up the glue so it will be easier to remove your false lashes and be safer for your natural lashes. Another tip would be make sure you’re not applying the false lashes too close the lash line because again, you’ll get glue on your natural lashes.
So just make sure to be careful and patient and you’ll be fine! :)

For thicker foundations you want to use a brush that has really dense and short tightly packed brush hairs. This will blend out thicker foundations and cream products a lot easier.
Try brushes like

There are quite a few ways to use translucent powder!
As a setting powder. Translucent powder can be used over foundation, instead of your normal pressed/tinted powder. It looks a lot more natural because it never looks cakey or powdery but still sets your foundation so it stays put and controls shine. Also great if you use cream products like cream blush or cream bronzer and want to powder the skin without covering up all the cream contouring/blush you just did!
As a finishing powder. This would be applied after all of your makeup like foundation, pressed powder, blush, etc. Translucent powder is so finely milled and silky it makes your skin look more silky and smooth so it’s great to finish off your makeup look!
As an under eye setting powder. Concealer under your eyes is prone to creasing and sometimes applying a normal pressed powder can look and feel too heavy and drying under the eyes. Translucent powders is feather light and never looks cakey so you can set your concealer with it so it won’t crease through out the day!
Under foundation. Applying a thin layer of translucent powder after your moisturizer and before foundation sort of acts like a primer so you won’t get as shiny or oily through out the day. This is best for oily skin so I would not recommend this tip for more dry skin types.
Alone over bare skin. Translucent powder is excellent at controlling oils so if you have oily skin but still want to stay shine free on no makeup days like to the beach, pool, etc you can throw on a little translucent powder over bare skin.
