I am excited to share with you my Top 5 Mascara Hacks & Makeup Tips and Tricks! These are the everyday beauty hacks that I use daily during my makeup routine.

Simple tips and tricks for applying makeup in the correct order, and how to make foundation stay in place all day.
Top 5 Makeup Hacks
1) How to Apply Foundation
I notice a HUGE difference in my foundation application when I use a FLAT foundation brush to apply my foundation. The paint brushes never seem to work for me, but every time I use a flat brush the results are flawless. Just put some of your foundation on your wrist and pat the flat foundation brush on the product. Apply the foundation by patting your face with the foundation brush and slowly applying the foundation in a circular motion until completely covered. This is an easy way to layer your foundation and get the coverage that you desire.
2) How to Apply Concealer
Concealer should be applied AFTER foundation. Once I figured out this beauty hack it made a WORLDS of difference! Apply your concealer with a larger concealer rounded brush. Apply the concealer in a circular motion by patting the concealer under the eye (all the way down to the eye socket in a reversed triangle pattern) and on blemishes. Be sure to pat the concealer and do not rub. You have to make the reversed triangle pattern down to the middle of your cheek bone to get the best coverage.
3) Blush Beauty Hacks
Blush. Pressed Powder. Blush. Yes, you will get the best look and flawless finish if you will apply your blush with a fluffy blush brush and then set it with pressed powder on a sponge. Just lightly go over the cheeks with pressed powder to set your first application of blush or bronzer. After you let this set for a couple of minutes you can go back over your blush with a second, and light, application of blush. Sometimes I do not even get more blush on my brush, but going over the blush a second time after the pressed powder helps to set my makeup all day.
4) Eyebrow Pallet Hacks
Eyebrow Pallets are pretty simple, and I am loving the Brow Fashion Pro Palette from Maybelline. For another way to use your Eyebrow Pallet, use the lightest color under your bottom eyelashes, under your eye brow, and in the corner of your eyes. I found that the lightest color of the Brow Fashion Pro Pallet made a perfect highlighter color to help brighten my eyes and give me the finished look that I love!
5) Mascara Hacks
This is one of my favorite beauty hacks and I am excited to share it with you! Add 1 drop of Lavender Essential Oil (Therapeutic grade) to your mascara tube. This will help to kill eyelash mites (yes, they really do exist)! Plus, I can see a huge difference in my mascara application and how my lashes look when I use the drop of Lavender Essential Oil! Here is more information on Essential Oils if you are curious!
Here are the 10 steps that I follow when I apply my makeup! This is a quick and easy 5 minute routine (unless I take longer to play with my eye shadow colors)! Follow these tips to get your makeup to look flawless and so that each product has time to set. It is amazing to me the difference I see in my makeup when I follow these steps verses when I just use my fingers to apply my makeup (guilty – I really do just use my fingers sometimes). When I follow these steps my makeup stays in place all day long and the coverage is fantastic!
