Hey Everyone!
Its finally Friday! (In Australia) so if your one of my Aussie readers, happy Friday!

Some of these beauty tips/facts are common ones you might be aware of and some you might not! For instance if i knew that a potato could de-puff my eye circles, i would of saved alotttt of money!

If i also found out that i needed a certain about of space between my nose and blush, it would of prevented all the years as a teenager i spent looking like Ronald McDonald.

So grab a coffee, cookie or cupcake because its Friday and continue reading!

First thing first - Always allow two fingers from your nose to where your blush starts!

Two - To make your cheekbone appear higher, bronze under the cheekbone and highlight the actual cheekbone.

Three - Clean your makeup bag every 3-6 months to get ride of unwanted or expired products. Read my guide (here) with the breakdown of when to keep or ditch old makeup!

Four - Always exfoliate before apply fake tan. Knees, Elbows and back of your feet are essential to avoid patches or streaking! 

Five - Take a multi-vitamin containing Biotin to help your hair grow!

Six - The best way to pick a foundation colour is to apply it to your jawline in the most natural light possible. 

Seven - Use a cream cleanser when washing your face, they are less drying than gels.

Eight - Keep a blowout lasting longer by sleeping on a satin or silk pillow case

Nine - When you put mascara on dont lower your chin, that's how you get it on your lid!

Ten - Apply cream or cleanser by dabbing upwards to prevent sagging of the skin. 

Eleven - To make lipstick last longer wait a few minutes for it to set and then blot with a tissue, dust them with pressed or loose powder and apply another coat.

Twelve - Wait until after you shower to save. The hair softens giving smoother results.

Thirteen - Apply sunscreen or face cream with SPF daily!

Fourteen - I have said this before and i will say it again, de-puff your eyes with raw potato. Cut two slices and place under eyes for 10 minutes.

Fifteen - To hide chipped nail-polish use a crackle or glitter on top and they will look super cute and brand new!
