Once you learn your undertone, you’ll be way more prepared to choose makeup colors that work for you. For example, a red lipstick with warm undertones (orange or yellow) works best for warm skin tones, while red lipstick with cool undertones (blue or purple) works best on cool skin tones. It’s science!
Put all of the little pieces of cracked makeup into your compact. Then, pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol into the tin and mix together with your finger. Let the compact dry overnight and it’ll be ready for action come morning.
Use your finger or a toothbrush to rub this mixture on your lips in tiny, circular motions for about 30 seconds. Then rinse it off with water and a tissue. Smoother lips means smoother lipstick which makes everything look better.
Apply the lipstick with a brush or straight from the tube. Blot, then cover your lips with a translucent powder, which soaks up the moisture of lipstick that can make it slide or bleed. Put on one more layer of lipstick to seal in the powder, and that stuff will not move.
Use a lip liner one shade deeper than your natural color to line just outside of your lips. Fill the center with concealer, then apply lipstick on top, then lip gloss. Become one with your inner Kylie Jenner.
To get the perfect flick in Step 1, hold your eyeliner diagonally on your face from the corner of your nostril up to the corner of your eye. Where the pencil hits at your eye will be the perfect angle for you.
The main takeaways: Push back your cuticles, but avoid cutting them; wipe off excess polish from your brush so that you can cover the whole nail without double-dipping; make light brush strokes to fill your nail.
Soak a cotton pad in acetone, then place it over your nail. Wrap your nail in tin foil so the cotton pad stays in place, then repeat on the rest of your nails. Let them soak for about 10 minutes, then pull off the cotton ball and bask in the happiness that is a non-aggravating glitter nail polish removal.
