Those loose eye shadow bottles seem to be all the rage right now. You can find them in just about every brand. But applying them correctly may present a problem when you are in a hurry. Here is what I do. First, I wet my eye shadow brush before I apply the shadow. I also hold a little sheet of paper under my eye to catch any stray specks.

before you put on mascara, it's always better to put a bit of vaseline and brush the lashes to protect them from the mascara

So bad at applying make up...really need help.

I love the glitter in the hair idea! What I usually do is get some loose glitter (or glitter dust), take pinchfulls of it and sprinkle it into my hair then I take my hair spray and go over the glitter with that. It makes the glitter stay longer AND doubles as a styling maneuver! It can get messy, but I don't mind it. I like glitter.. It's kind of my personality "trademark". Also, I was SUPER excited to see the trick with the waves!! Just put your hair up in a bun! I never would have thought about that!! Brilliant!! Thanks!

The curls into soft waves is such a good tip! It can be trickie to deal w curly but that tip seems so simple. Thanks! Best, Gisela

I like the idea of putting shimmer on your hair
