Try tweezing your eyebrows right after a shower. The heat from the shower helps to loosen hair follicles, making plucking easier and less painful. You can also try Baby Anbesol to numb the area. Baby bc it won't burn your skin like the others. Just make sure not to get it in your eyes, that will burn like ...

If you have trouble with your lip gloss or lip stick not looking smooth due to lip lines or dry skin, this will take care of it. Dry, cracked lips or skin are no match for the product. If nothing else has worked, you must try Aquaphor. You can pick this up and any drug store for around $6.

Check out what Dr. Oz had to say:
The Price of Beauty
"We’re paying more and more attention to the food and drink we put inside our bodies, but everyday we slather products on our bodies that are unregulated, made from hazardous substances, and potentially harmful to our health. In the pursuit of beauty (or, let’s face it, just covering up the circles under our eyes), we cake on makeup, rub on moisturizers, and spray on perfume – and not one of those products is subject to FDA approval. What’s worse, labels that seem to indicate healthy choices – natural, organic, hypoallergenic – don’t actually mean anything, because there are no regulations for using those terms. Here’s what you need to know about the 3 most dangerous beauty products.
The Problem with Powder is...
Mineral makeup is a big trend. Made from minerals such as mica, which are used for industrial purposes as well, these tiny particles are a thousand times smaller than predecessors from even 10 years ago. Their small size makes for a smoother, more flawless look, but it has one serious unintended consequence. The particles are so tiny they fall quickly through the air and can be inhaled easily into your lungs. When construction workers use mica in products such as spackle, they wear masks to protect their lungs from scarring over time. Though there are no studies showing damage from makeup use to date, experts say the long-term use and inhalation of minerals in makeup can lead to inflammation, irritation, and lung disease in women and girls."

For makeup newbies try: L'Oreal HIP & Hard Candy (both are at wal-mart $7-$10)
Some of the Pro lines I use include: MAC, Smashbox, Ben Nye, & MUFE.
Just make sure to use an eye shadow primer to prevent creasing & to make the color stay on longer.
I love to use a dual fiber brush. (it has white hairs that stick out) It gives great coverage but with a smooth finish. Then using a concealer brush, I go under the eye & where I need more. I love Eco Tools brush set by Alicia Sliverstone. Yes, from Clueless :)

What a great question!
In the art world, stippling is a method of drawing or painting with a series of small dots to create texture and depth.
In the beauty world, stippling is a method of blending out creamy makeup products, like concealers, foundations, and lipsticks, to create a seamless, soft finish. To stipple, just apply the product a makeup sponge and use short strokes to lightly dab onto your face until blended.

My favorite drug store mascara is L'Oreal Double Extend ($10) in the gold & white tube. The white side is a primer which can double as an eyelash conditioner. Conditioning your lashes will help them grow just like conditioning the hair on your head. Let me know how you like it!
