Soak your hands in warm milk to help strengthen nails.

If you feel like your face looks dry after you’ve finished your makeup set it with Evian water.  Carry a small bottle of the Evian spray in your purse to keep refreshening your makeup through out the night.

Want a sun kissed glow?  Apply a bronzer/powder along your hairline, cheeks, top of your nose and temples then apply a peach shimmer blush on the apples of your cheeks.

Take a bath after you’ve finished your makeup.  Don’t dunk your head in the water but the steam will help your makeup set into your skin so you look less made up.  This will also give you a natural glow. - Makeup Artist Mai Quynh - Mark Cosmetics

Style bangs with very little product.  Apply a small amount of gel or mousse to the roots to give a little lift.  Also, dry bangs with low heat.  

A great trick to shrink pores and tighten your skin is to apply a thin layer of Pepto-bismol on your face and leave for 10 minutes.  Wash off with warm water.

Do you have a big event and want to make sure you don’t sweat on your face?  Lightly apply a clear antiperspirant deodorant that is unscented on your face.  Test out the deodorant on arm beforehand to make sure you won’t have an allergic reaction.

Start with a cream blush and when you’re finished setting makeup apply a powder blush over top. This will help it last all day!

Want relief to a razor burn or cut? Apply some aloe vera directly on it to lift any pain or discomfort.

Mix aloe vera and witch hazel together then rub this mixture on your nail with a cotton ball to help strengthen your nails.
