Make-up Se­crets...

No. 1 Magazine - - SCOTLAND’S NO.1 FOR BEAUTY -

15. Anne-louise E Hall: Mois­turise be­fore ap­ply­ing make-up! If you’re like me, and have re­ally bad skin, it will make it look more nat­u­ral.

16. Anne Mcgowan: Al­ways use top qual­ity brushes when ap­ply­ing make-up ( Real Tech­niques Core Col­lec­tion, £21.99).

17. Rhoda Kel: Stick a post-it note from the outer cor­ner of your eye to where your eye­brow nat­u­rally ends, then go to town with your eyeshadow. You can also use it to ap­ply liner for a cat-eye flick. Re­move the sticky note and your eye make-up will be per­fect.

18. Jane Cur­rie: Ex­tend the life of nail pol­ish by keep­ing in the fridge.

19. An­gela Rat­tray: Clean out your make-up bag reg­u­larly.

20. Va­lerie Wil­liams: Estée Lauder Dou­ble Wear Foun­da­tion is the best prod­uct ever. I also mix it with a small amount of BB cream to use it for day­time and make it go fur­ther. (Garnier BB Cream Skin Perfector For Sen­si­tive Skin, £6.66 and Estée Lauder Dou­ble Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, £30).

21. Emma An­der­son: Base is ev­ery­thing - al­ways ex­fo­li­ate, mois­turise and use a primer. Also, warm your eye or lip pen­cils be­fore us­ing – they ap­ply much smoother and last longer!

22. Michelle Clark: Sharpen any eye pen­cils a lit­tle bit on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, it helps re­move germs and is cleaner than try­ing to give a wipe with tis­sues.

23. Sarah Mor­ri­son: Al­ways clean your make-up brushes reg­u­larly.

24. Claire Mar­shall: Ap­ply your foun­da­tion in a down­ward mo­tion in­stead of up­wards! The wee fine hairs on your face grow down­wards so this will make it less no­tice­able.

25. Lisa Hous­ton: Re­mem­ber that all prod­ucts have a ‘use by date’ and should not be used past this as it can be dan­ger­ous and cause health is­sues. And don’t share prod­ucts like lip­stick, you can end up with cold sores.

26. Fiona Ma­cleay Mar­shall: If you were left with only a lip­stick you can use it as blusher, high­lighter, eyeshadow and lip­stick! What a ver­sa­tile lit­tle thing!

27. Diane De Sousa: Use BB cream, in­stead of foun­da­tion.

28. Amy Jane Beck­ett: Use lipbalm to help pow­der eyeshadow stick to the lids for longer.

29. Lor­raine Davis: I can’t do with­out a good light-re­flect­ing con­cealer un­der my eyes. It bright­ens my whole face up. (Col­lec­tion Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Touch Con­cealer, £4.99)

30. Ni­cola Good­fel­low: Al­ways use a foun­da­tion brush to put your foun­da­tion on. Avoid us­ing your fin­gers as they ab­sorb the make-up.

31. Suz O’neill: Don’t for­get your eye­brows, they frame your face! Pen­cil them, brush them, fill them in... what­ever you need de­pend­ing on your brow shape and full­ness. (Clinique Pretty Easy Brow Pal­ette, £25).

32. Kaye Wil­lan: In­vest in a primer – it re­ally works! Get one for your face and one for your eyes. Your make-up will stay fresh all day. (L’oréal Paris Color Riche Eye Primer Base, £5.99 and Garnier 5 Se­cond Per­fect Blur Primer, £12.99).

33. Su­san Samson: Try to have a ‘no make-up day’ to al­low your skin to breathe ev­ery once in a while.

34. Eilidh Mcinnes: I use a dark con­cealer as my con­tour stick and the light­est shade as my high­lighter.
