It can be tricky. It can make you look like a million bucks or like a glittery mess. This is why finding a well formulated highlight powder is important it's like having a lighting technician in your makeup bag .

Tweezers are a tool that you may not use every day but they have a very important job to grip and pull out that one unruly hair that has been bugging you for days. High quality brands have better gripping power than less expensive ones.

Finding the right concealer is so important and can change entire look of your makeup. Look for a non creasing hydrating liquid formula with creamy finish that works equally well on neutralizing under eye circles as it does on hiding breakouts. Remember, with concealer, a little goes a long way so the product will last you until it’s time to switch out your products.
