Makeup Tips From NewBeauty Readers

As part of the NewBeauty TestTube giveaway on our Facebook page, readers were asked to share their beauty tips with us. Now, we're sharing some of their best makeup tips with you!

When Bonnie B. from Jacksonville, FL, wants to wear glittery eye shadow for a glammed up party look, she uses lip balm as a base to make it last longer. Cathlene D. from Sacramento, CA, applies white eye shadow on her bottom lid to make the colors on the top lid pop. Andrea F. from Groveland, MA, uses a pale shimmery highlighter on the inner corner of the eye to look more awake, while April F. from Birmingham, AL, takes this tip a step further by dabbing highlighter near the bridge of her nose.

Olesya C. from West Pittston, PA, lines her lips with a nude lip pencil for a more natural look that will also match any lip color. And to make her lipstick last longer, Brenda B. from Macon, GA, dusts finishing powder through a tissue onto freshly made up lips to make the color last longer.

To keep her makeup in tip-top shape during the summer months, Lisa T. from Mercer, PA, keeps her nail polish and lipstick in the refrigerator. Another great tip comes from Karen S. from Fort Gibson, OK, who says, “You can share all the news from NewBeauty with your friends, but you should never share your mascara with anyone.”
