QI love lin­ing my in­ner rims. How do I pre­vent my wa­tery eyes from wash­ing it away? Wear gel liner. It’s as in­tense and tear-proof as liq­uid (which won’t stick to in­ner lids), and the semi-solid tex­ture is gen­tle on the del­i­cate rims, says NY-based make-up artist Mathew Ni­gara. While gel pen­cils are eas­i­est to ap­ply, pots (such as Estée Lauder’s, here and M.A.C Fluid Line Eye­liner, 1,000)—which are ap­plied with a brush—stay in place longer. QWhat’s

the best way to wash my back so I can nix my backne for good? Use a long-han­dled loofah (like the one be­low) to ap­ply a sal­i­cylic-acid cleansing scrub. (We like The Body Shop Straw­berry Body Pol­ish, 465). “The ex­tended pouf is key to de­posit­ing the anti-acne for­mula,” says Dr Howard

Mu­rad, MD, UCLA.


I ap­ply eye cream just un­der­neath my eyes or on my up­per lids too? “It de­pends on the for­mula, so read the us­age di­rec­tions,” says NYC derm Diane Mad­fes. In gen­eral, fast-ab­sorb­ing gels and lo­tions can go on both ar­eas. The oils in heav­ier creams, how­ever, could mi­grate into your eyes, caus­ing ir­ri­ta­tion and swelling, so use those on the un­der

eye area only.
