Okay, so we are definitely not socialites or celebrities
who practically go out to parties on a daily basis. We don’t
have hair stylists, make up artists and fashion consultants
making sure that we look all out gorgeous everywhere we go,
including the most mundane events such as…ahem…..taking out
the trash. We don’t have money nor the time to splurge on
blowouts or manicures on a weekly basis. What we do have are
ideas to make you look and feel like an A-List Star. Use these
ideas anytime, anywhere, and even for just mundane events like
taking out the trash. Enjoy!

1-Just Glow: Mix a little bronzer with your moisturizer and
rub into your skin for a natural glow. Works for both face and

2-Define Your Cheekbones: Start with a dark shade of blush below
your cheekbones and blend upward. Then use a lighter shade of blush
on the apples of your cheeks.

Try Dainty Doll by Nicola Roberts* or Cover Girl Instant Cheekbones

3-Let Your Eyes Do The Talking: Start with a shade of brown
eyeshadow,then use eyeliner to draw from your inner eyelid corner to
your outer eyelid, then draw just a little past that in a more upward
stroke for the cat eye effect. Add bold false lashes if you dare!

4-Bring Out Your Eye Color: If you have blue eyes, use a soft
blue eye shadow and black eyeliner. If you have brown eyes, use dark
browns and lavenders. If you have green eyes, then try soft colors
such as sand, or a green shade.

lips with a bright red lip liner, then color it in with vivid red
lip color in the same shade. Viola! Juicy red lips.

8-Make A New Blush: Take an older powder blush and mix it
with Vaseline and blend it in for a softer effect of a cream blush.
