Tricks Of The Trade

These 10-second quick fixes will leave your brows, pout, eyes and complexion looking perfect


For: Bold brows

Spritz some hairspray onto a soft toothbrush (clean and dry, please) and brush brow strands into place for a neat arch.

For: A plush pout 

Prepping the lips is important — do this before applying the rest of your makeup by using a balm. By the time you’re made up and ready for lipstick, you’ll have soft and smooth lips with no flaky bits in sight. 

For: Smooth shadow 

Use an eyeshadow primer — that’s going to help eyeshadow formulas, no matter the shade or texture, adhere to your lids without creasing or smudging. 

For: Glowy skin 

Give your skin instant radiance and more dimension by dusting some powder highlighter over your T-zone and cheekbones with a light hand.
