1 | Camouflage roots by zigzagging your part rather than making it straight.
2 | Brush hair from roots to ends nightly. This distributes natural oils throughout the shaft and gives hair a healthy sheen.
3 | Be direct when telling your hairstylist what you want, and bring photos from magazines of styles you like.
4 | Doing your hair color yourself? Don’t make too drastic a change. Stay within one or two shades of your natural color.
5 | Comb wet hair like the pros: Hold a handful at a time and work from center to ends, then scalp to center.
6 | Soften skin before tweezing by dabbing with a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream.
7 | Tweeze in the direction the hair grows.
8 | Don’t change the place where your brows peak and never pencil the whole brow. Instead, only fill in holes.
9 | Use only the side of a sharpened brow pencil—not the pointed tip—so as not to draw a hard line.
10 | For unruly brows, apply hairspray to an old toothbrush, then brush brows upward and outward.
11 | Treat your eye area gently. This is the most delicate part of your face. Cleanse with care; blot, never rub.
12 | Reduce puffy eyes by splashing with cold water or applying a cold compress (ice cubes in a washcloth): 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off.
13 | When you put on mascara, don’t lower your chin—that’s how mascara gets on your lid.
14 | Get eyeshadow to stay in place by priming lids with moisturizer and foundation.
15 | Always use your ring finger to apply moisturizer or concealer to the eye area. It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin.
16 | Don’t touch your face unnecessarily. Breakouts can be caused by your own fingers.
17 | Apply cream or cleanser by lightly pressing upward—never down. The delicate skin sags easily enough in time.
18 | For the best color match, test foundation and powder either on your face or neck (the inside of your wrist is too pale)
19 | Use foundation, not concealer (which is lighter than your skin color), to cover up redness or blemishes
20 | Rouge should be well-blended far out on the cheekbone; circles of rouge don’t look good on anyone.
21 | Get lips soft and smooth by using a damp, warm washcloth at night to rub off the flaky dry bits; follow with a coat of lip balm
22 | Ease the evening switch to a redder or darker lipstick by applying it over and blending it into your daytime color
23 | To make lipstick last longer, allow it to set for a few minutes after applying, blot lips with tissue and dust them with powder, then apply another coat
24 | Cheeks feeling flushed? Put on a bold color lipstick; a neutral shade will only make red cheeks stand out
25 | For lipliner that glides on, warm it up first by pinching it with your fingertips
26 | The best time to apply lotion is right after a shower or bath, when skin is still damp.
27 | When drawing a bath, scatter bubbles or crystals directly under the faucet before turning on the water, but drop in perfume oil while the tub is filling
28 | Beautiful skin starts from within. Include lots of vegetables, fruit and water in your diet
29 | Overdo it with your perfume? Dab rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball on your skin. The alcohol will cut the scent without altering it.
30 | Microwave lotion for 5 seconds to soothe dry winter skin.
31 | Improve circulation in your legs and lower the risk of unsightly veins by elevating your feet when resting
32 | Wait until after your shower to shave. The steam softens hairs for smoother results.
33 | Don’t use creams that contain heavy fragrance or alpha hydroxy acids on freshly shaven legs. They’ll sting and cause a rash.
34 | When applying “liquid stockings” [or today’s self-tanner], don’t forget the back of your knees, which are often missed.
36 | Shape nails with an emery board, filing sides toward center—never straight across—and rounding off edges
37 | What works for your face works for your hands. Remove age spots with facial brightening cream
38 | The fast way to remove nail polish: Hold cotton saturated with polish remover firmly on your nail for a few seconds to let it start working, then wipe nail clean.
39 | Apply polish starting at the pinky, working toward the thumb to avoid dragging your hand across wet nails.
40 | To counteract dryness, massage feet with a lanolin-based lotion, kneading it deeply into your instep, then massage soles, heels, top surface and around nails.
41 | Before using a pumice stone or foot file to remove a callus, be sure to soak your foot in warm water for at least 5 minutes. Follow with a little foot cream.
42 | To prevent ingrown nails, trim toenails straight across, not down into the corners.
43 | Relieve swollen feet by soaking them alternately in hot water (for 3 minutes), then cold water (for 1 minute), for a total of 15 minutes.
44 | Use fresh pineapple or kiwi skins, which contain bromelain (a meat tenderizer), to exfoliate heels. Rub the fleshy part over heels for 5 minutes, then rinse, dry and moisturize.

Loved the tips,using ring finger for eye creams and products and moisturiser on damp skin is truly beneficial. And warming eyeliners and lipliners between fingers certainly helps in gliding smoothly.I am surely trying 43 the next time 😉
