Day 14- Love Your Life Challenge, Make up tips!

Guest post by the ever talented Tanya Guccione

Top 5 make Up Tips we all need to know

1.Your foundation is just that! It's the base to you looking hot! I always recommend Mineral makeup, it's good stuff! Be fussy with what goes on your face...

2. Smokey eye's always look great however if your gonna create a smokey eye go easy on the lippy. If you have sunken eyes or small eyes don't use a dark eyeshadow use a light color to make your beautiful eyes pop out!
# However if your gonna go natural on the eyes go bold on the lips...

3. Use a foundation brush instead of a sponge you save on product and it's more hygienic but most importantly you'll get a flawless finish!

4. Make sure to keep your make up fresh and dewy looking, always choose an illuminating foundation/blush over a matt finish...

5. Make time.... cuz your worth it.... You're 10 minutes away to fabulous! Lippy, blush and some mascara makes all the difference! "Hey! Less is more remember!"

I LOVE MAKEUP! Realyl cant work out why more men dont wear it everyday. Makes me feel great when I'm all dressed up and ready to go. Good tip on the foundation brush too! Love smokey eyes and you are so right go natural on the lips looks SO much nicer!

I have found make-up again. I stopped wearing it for so long after I had my daughter because I fell into a hole and didn't see the point. But I love having fun now, and I totally agree with the last statement - it only takes a few minutes to put on the basics to help make you feel great.

I must remember the tip re: smokey eyes + natural lips. Sounds good. My only personal tip - don't hang onto your makeup for too long (like I have). I didn't realise that makeup has an expiry date just like food. Time for some new foundation for me!

I love putting make up on when I go out however usually wear none during the day. However I really should because it does make you feel so much better!
My favorite foundation had been discontinued so I am trying one of Tanya's next!
The best foundation brush is Lancome but they always sell out and rarely have it stock and it's around $70. I have heard that The Body Shop foundation brush is just as good and it's I think $30.

I have been meaning to get a foundation brush like FOREVER but i dnt know about the body shop ones I have a couple of there blush brushes and they loose hair.. quite frustrating really.. So my eyes will be peeled for new ones + foundation brush!!! Oh and I tryed fake lashes (the sml almost individual ones just a few to thicken mine up) recently just a test run to see how they look and if I was allergic to the glue and tadaaaa I am not allergic woo hoo,, And they looked fantastic!! so next time I go out extra thick lashes here i come!!!!

hey guys Inglot have a great foundation brush and i think its $34.95 they last forever you just gotta clean them with soapy warm water....

flutterbye_77 if you can get lashes on they are amazing..... and very in at the momment, so feel free to have a play with different lashes...

bell, sometimes a smokey eye is just a bit of smuggy eyeliner and placed on the inner rim of the eye, with a soft nude lippy is gorgus!...
practice is the key! Tanya Guccione
