1. The secret to long-lasting lipstick:

Apply one layer of your favorite color, dab lips with powder over a tissue, apply another coat, and — BAM! — don't think about it the rest of the night.

2. Prevent blotchiness:

Exfoliating regularly evens out the skin tone and creates a smooth surface for makeup. Be mindful to use a scrub and a technique that is not too harsh — you don't want to damage your skin and remove healthy layers too.

Something you don't know: Start the process before getting in the shower. Brushing dry skin will get rid of the dead cells that are already loose.

3. Make your eyes appear bigger:

Lining your bottom water line with white eyeliner gives the illusion of bigger eyes, so you'll be all: *blink blink* "Who, me?" This trick can be used in a subtle or more dramatic way.

4. The hairstyle that keeps on giving:

A crown braid does so many good things for your hair; it helps extend the time between blowouts — giving your hair a break from heat — and sets you up for a great second-day look when you take it out to reveal big, wavy curls.

6. The trick to framing your features:

Defining your eyebrows with a powder or pencil that is one shade darker than your hair can work to frame and lift your natural features.

7. Remove glitter the easy way:

No more struggling. Dip a cotton ball in nail polish remover, place it on your nail, then secure with tin foil. Let your nail sit like that for one to two minutes, then remove — the glitter should slide off your nail easily.

8. Cover up dark under eyes:

Dabbing concealer just under the eye can fail to fully cover dark circles. By extending the lighter shade in a triangular shape down the cheek, the color blends in a more natural fashion, instantly making you appear more awake.

9. How to tame those flyaways:

Instead of overloading your entire head with hair spray, spray a little on an old toothbrush and lightly brush over flyaways to secure them down.

10. Reduce stress and stimulate a youthful glow:

The next time you're applying a facial moisturizer, take the opportunity to improve the circulation of the muscle tissue with some facial massage techniques.

11. Easy guide to contouring:

Think of contouring in the shape of the letter E. You start at your temple, sweep down to below your cheekbone, and then sweep back and under your jawbone.
