Instant Eye Lift
Make eyes pop by lining them with a light shimmer. This little trick instantly lifts the appearance of sagging tissue, "wakes up" your whole face and gives you an all-over glow. The trick is that these colors make the whites of your eyes stand out, and reduce the appearance of puffiness.
White and champagne shades work best for blue eyes, while pink liners like Tarina Tarantino Dream Hyperliner in Broken Doll make green eyes pop. Girls with brown eyes have all the luck because every color looks great on them, but I suggest trying a silver or blue shimmer.
End The Day On A High Note
End your day with a super exfoliation treatment. Exfoliated skin absorbs nutrients and moisturizers more completely, which means it's the key to perfecting your skin. I, of course, highly recommend Sukiface exfoliate foaming cleanser, and when you try it you'll know why. But a close second might be Clinique 7-day scrub cream.
Gently massage either of these in circular motions all over your face and décolletage, being sure to last a full minute. Cleansing for 60 seconds is more important than you think because it really beefs up the immune system, the circulation, and the power and potency of the product you are using.
Get A Bangin' New Look
Cutting your bangs is a great way to "youth it up," and I do it whenever I'm feeling a bit peevish. Try on different styles in the Makeover Studio to find your best look, and snip your bangs with a professional brush, flat comb, and dry hair. Leave a little extra length so the pros can come in and clean up your work later!
