It’s fun to buy new shades of lip color, but you can layer selections from your current collection for an expanded variety of choices. Mix two shades by applying one layer of each. You can apply a lip pencil of one shade topped with a lippie of another shade. Get creative with lipgloss to change up the color of your pout.

Warm Your Eyeliner

My bestie shared this tip with me over one of our many makeup mirror sessions before school.  The problem with kohl eyeliner is that it may not have the deep black color payoff of a liquid liner.  You can still get a rich look with your tried and true eyeliner pencil by warming it up a bit.  Hold it as close to your makeup vanity mirror or hot curling iron for a few seconds to heat then apply.  Test out on the back of your hand until you’re confortable judging how long to heat.
