Best Foundation To  Use If You Have Fine Eye Lines And Bigger Pores? Honestly , I dont think the foundation is what matter, I suggest a primer before you apply your foundation to feel in those lines & pores , I recommend Benefit the POREfessional Face Primer or for a drugstore brand Palladio Herbal Face Primer, you will notice your foundation going on smoother and you wont notice all your imperfections .

How To Get The Glowy Look ‑- Not Greasy ‑- This Summer. How do I Get A Sexy Hue? 
Shiny eyes and lips are great in warm weather, when you don't want to wear anything too heavy or slick. Here's how to do the dew:
Lids: Go for a colored eye gloss ‑- the nongoopy texture won't crease as quickly as a cream shadow. 

Lashes: Use a smearproof clear lash gel to give your fringe a glimmering effect. A good one: Givenchy Lash Pearls, 

Lips: A new crop of shiny sheer liners defines your lips without creating an obvious line.

What's A Fail-Proof Way To Pick The Perfect Shade Of Foundation?Selecting an exact skin-tone-matching makeup shade can be tricky. Foundation needs to be sampled in natural light, but most stores have fluorescent bulbs, which distort the color of the foundation, says makeup artist Leslie Lopez, whose celebrity clients include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Cameron Diaz. The trick is to dab on a touch of what seems to be your makeup match at the cosmetics counter, then head outside to check out your reflection in broad daylight. (If you're a drugstore shopper, look for makeup samples in magazines.)

Is There Any Way To Make My Full Face Appear Slimmer?There are two key tricks that can make your face seem thinner. The first one is contouring your cheeks with a combination of blush and bronzer, Sweep the bronzer along the top of your cheekbones, then suck in your cheeks and blend a rosy nude shade of blush in the hollowed area. The contrast between the two blushes will make your face look more angular.The second trick is a hair technique: Try a cut with eyebrow-skimming bangs or ear-level layers. Having some shape in the top half of your hair (instead of sporting all-one-length locks) will make your face appear more narrow in comparison.

What's The Trick To Applying Black Liquid Eyeliner?The secret is in the tip — it should be ballpoint pen–size and end in a fine point, Before you paint, pull your lid taut. Then apply the liner in one even stroke from the inner eye outward, as close to the lash line as possible, he says. Feeling shaky? Prop up your elbow first.

What Can You Do To Make Your Nail Polish Less Gooey? Add a few drop of nail thinner, and it should be fix , however DONT add nail polish remover it will dissolves & ruin you polish

What Ia The Shelf Life For Nail Polishes? Unopened and properly stored polish will last at least 18 months, possibly 24 months depending on storage conditions , texture is a dead giveaway for varnish gone wrong. Older bottles typically feel thick, clumpy, and are troublesome to apply an even coat compared to newer, runnier textures. “Over time, some ingredients begin to clump together, making it difficult to remix them As long as the polish is stored out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dark setting, your nail polish should last forever, as long as you store it properly.

 

If I Use Makeup With Sunscreen, Do I Still Have To Apply Sunscreen Separately? That all depends on the SPF (sun protection factor) rating of your make up. If it's 15 or more then it will likely be enough - as long as you apply it properly and in a thick enough layer to get maximum protection. If your makeup contains less than a 15 SPF, then you need a layer of sunscreen as well. But remember, SPF numbers are not cumulative. So, if your foundation has an SPF of 10 and your powder has an SPF of 8, the maximum protection you are getting is 10. Moreover, remember that sun exposure degrades sunscreen , so you have to reapply it every few hours. To avoid having to redo your make-up, check out mineral powders or mineral veils. These loose powders contain a natural sunscreen and can be dusted on top of make-up without getting that heavy, caked-on look.

Trick: Want Sky High Lashes ? Wiggle mascara in at the base of the lash and sweep outward and upward , the trick to sexy natural lashes is to get the thickness into the base of the lashes and taper them naturally to the ends, as opposed to chunky, thick ends

 

Trick :Want A Smoked Out Eye ? Start by lining the inner rim of your lower lashlines, working the eyeliner into the lashes. Close your eyes and line the upper lashlines, pushing the liner into the lashes so there’s no gap between your lashes and the line. Use your fingertip to smudge it in, then sweep eyeshadow across your lids and up into your creases, blending outwards and upwards towards (but not to!) your temple.

Is There A Good Way To Control The Shine And/Or Oiliness- Yes I swear by these 7 steps !  

Wash Right Even if you don't tend to break out, switching to a cleanser that fights zits in the summer will keep your skin looking matte. Choose one with 2 percent salicylic acid, which helps break down oil in the pores but isn't overdrying. (We like Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser.) 

 Don't Scrimp on Sunblock A healthy dose of sunblock (a teaspoon for your face), surprisingly, helps control oil and shine. Skip your morning moisturizer and slather on a mineral-based block  

Scale Back on Makeup Foundation not only feels heavy in hot weather—it melts into your pores and clogs them, and they produce more oil. Switch to a tinted moisturizer with silicone, like Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights, which forms a shield over the skin, keeping makeup where it belongs. Or try a mineral powder foundation, which sucks up excess oil like a sponge.

 

Watch What You Eat Cocktails and spicy foods may hit the spot on a hot night. But they won't do your skin any favors; they dilate blood vessels, and make you perspire. Limit yourself to one drink a night, and eat spicy foods no more than once a week. And consider loading up instead on carrots, cantaloupe, and spinach; foods like these that are high in vitamin A can actually slow oil production.

 

Become a Facialist :And by that, we mean give yourself this easy at-home facial: 

 

1. Exfoliate once a week. Dermatologist Doris Day recommends the Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System, which uses sonic frequency to loosen dirt and oil in the pores. Or go old-school with a gentle scrub, like our favorite, Garnier Nutritioniste Pure Microbead Cream.

2. Follow with a mask. Look for one with clay or salicylic acid—they both temporarily decrease oil production in the skin. (Try St. Ives Mineral Blue Clay Firming Mask or Ole Henriksen Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask.)



3. If you're still greasy, get the strong stuff. Instead of the above exfoliators, try an at-home peel with salicylic or glycolic acid. (We like the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel.) Then apply the mask above a day later to avoid drying out the skin.

 Lighten Up on the Night Cream-Take your bedtime beauty routine down a notch. If you use a cream, switch to a lotion; if you use a lotion, switch to a hydrating serum. Whatever the formula, be sure the product contains oil-zapping salicylic or glycolic acid, pore-shrinking caffeine, or anti-inflammatory niacinamide. 

 

Blot Your Heart Out-Just don't use a powder puff, or you'll create a cakey mess. Instead, reach for blotting papers with a touch of translucent powder, like Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers. "They soak up excess oil and don't overstrip, so you really can't overuse them," says cosmetic chemist Jim Hammer.
