To keep feet looking beautiful, especially during the warmer, dryer summer months, try applying Vaseline to them every day. It will keep them smooth and soft. Then go get yourself a pedicure and a pair of brand new sassy sandals, and you’ll have the best looking feet of the season.

Follow up with cold water to close and refresh pores, then add moisturizer!
To hide purplish under-eye circles, try a yellow concealer. The yellow helps to cancel out the purple, leaving a smooth palette for applying your foundation. A thin layer of creamy yellow concealer also makes a great primer layer for your eyeshadow, because it minimizes the appearance of capillaries and helps the shadow stick.
A great way to accentuate the upper lash line and not create an overly spidery fringe is to apply a strip of the false lashes that are used for your lower lashes. Apply from corner to corner and because they are shorter than usual falsies, they will thicken the lash line and not cause excessive elongation.
Try using liquid eyeliner if you desire a more dramatic look. Liquid eyeliners allows you to use creativity and it makes your eyes dazzle. Apply it with a small angled brush.
The very oldest and simplest beauty treatments are often still the best ones. Lemon and egg whites mixed together make a great tightening mask.

Not only will your skin look fresher, but it will feel great, too.

As long as your face isn’t breaking out nor has red patches, then you are good. Remember to wash off the makeup each evening, so you are removing the bacteria that could possibly lead to irritation.
