Blush has a huge tendency to not last long. To make your cream blush last for hours, apply the blush using your finger while the liquid foundation is still about to dry. Liquid foundation creates a dewier surface for your blush to blend into, making it look more natural and allowing your cheeks to retain the color better. Layer a cream or gel blush underneath a powder blush is an easy way to get a more customized shade that suits your skin perfectly and adds to the staying power of your glow. Blend the blush with a foundation brush, then finish with a translucent powder to absorb any excess oil.

Finally an answer to everyone’s dilemma. Nothing’s worse than dropping a makeup compact and having the powder shatter. To fix a broken compact, gather all of the shattered particles of powder into its original container, and crush the whole thing up, pour a bit of rubbing alcohol and let it soak into the powder, then stir the powder to mix with the liquid. You can use your finger, the back of a spoon to press, rub and smooth down the makeup. Once it has a nice consistency, settle the compact on a flat surface and let dry for about 24 hours.
DIY Makeup Remover
Ran out of makeup remover? By using a few drops of olive oil can not only just function as a makeup remover, but it can also instantly moisturize your skin. Just be careful not to get the olive oil in your eye if you’re using it to take off mascara or other eye makeup. Use a tissue to wipe the oil off once you’re done.
Another trick to cover the dark circles under your eyes is to add a pinch of orange pigment to your concealer. Typically, concealer can be chalky or white, but underneath your eyes, orange can work well to counteract the blue or purple undertones that cause dark circles.
