Blushes, dry powders, even eyeshadow kits can fall down your hand and smash into pieces! But that can really affect the way you apply it and most of the time it is impossible to hold it in your hand without having pieces fall on the floor; that’s why we often throw them away and purchase new ones but not everyone can afford buying a new one simply because it is broken into pieces. I am about to show you a great and effective way on how to restore a shattered compact. It is very easy and doesn’t require much time. Start by covering it with a plastic bag, then make sure to make it smooth by fixing all the areas with a metallic stick or anything you can find. After doing so, take off the plastic bag and add some drops of alcohol into the compact. Smooth it over with a small brush and then let it dry. The alcohol will dry very fast and you will have your shattered compact back as new! It’s like it never happened! I just wish I could have found this method before throwing so many blushes and dry powders away.
As about the alcohol there is nothing to worry. It dries completely and will not affect your skin. It is very easy to do and I think we should all try this and stop worrying about our broken compacts. Have fun doing it!

Black and Gold eyeliner: now you can also mix together black and gold eyeliner in one makeup. You can apply black eyeliner on the top lashes and apply gold eyeliner on the lower lashes; or you can apply both of them on the upper lashes
Acne spots are dark marks that are left in the skin because of different inflammations. These marks can take months up to years to disappear, however if not treat some may stay in your skin forever. Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence but it may continue even later on in life. However, although there are many different pharmaceutical companies that claim to have discovered the answer for acne spots, the truth is that the majority of them may take forever to give any real result. However, even if they may give good result, not everyone can afford them. But I will show you a great way to get rid of acne spots once and for good with aspirin.
Aspirin is a very effective topical acne powerhouse, which helps you reduce the redness and swelling off your skin as well as making black/dark spots disappear.
How can you do that? It’s very easy. In a small cup, add few aspirins and a couple of drops of water, mix it together until it becomes like a smooth paste. Apply it on the problematic areas and leave the paste there for about 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it off with warm water after; and that’s how you cure acne spots with aspirin. Repeat the procedure as much as you find it necessary-or until your skin becomes clear and smooth.
Concealer is a color correct that helps you hide all face marks, dark circles under your eyes, marks or any other blemishes that cream powder cannot hide. However, only few use concealer daily and that is because most of the women don’t understand how important concealer is when it comes to cosmetic products. Concealer is a must have beauty product and that is because it brightens up your eyes and make your face look fresh and youthful. Concealer is heavily pigmented, which means it hides all imperfections perfectly. All you need is concealer, highlighter, concealer brush, translucent powder, puff or sponge. With these products you will be able to apply a perfect foundation and cover all your face marks, blemishes, and dark circles. Dark eye circles come as a result of tiredness, lack of sleep, stress, unhealthy eating and so on. You can also avoid dark eye circles by taking a good car of your body, life and needs. However, this tutorial only shows you how to cover dark circles using concealer; I think I will have to write another article to help you get rid of dark circles though home remedies, as for now, get inspired and cover your dark circles well.
Small noses are considered beautiful and cute-however, not everyone is blessed with a small nose; especially when it comes to girls, small nose can really play a big rule on how her face features looks, while when it comes to men, a big nose will not brake the looks because he is supposed to look masculine and men with tinny noses are not that cute.

7 Makeup Tricks to Make Your Nose Look Smaller
1- Use dark matt foundation first- when having a big nose is very important to use a foundation darker than your real skin tone-about 2 shades darker. Apply few lines down start from between your eyebrows all the way down to the sides of your nose. Make sure you blend the foundation very good so there will be no marks left.
2-Contouring- is a great way to give your face as well as your nose the shape that you want. You can contour different areas such as forehead , neck, nose, chicks and so on.
3-Matt Finish- Applying matt powder in the end is essential. Matt finish makeup should cover every shinny area of your face. In case you don’t know, shine can make your nose look way bigger.
4-Blush-Apply blush on your cheeks in order to give the face the right contouring and ‘distract’ the eyes from your nose.
5-Bronzer- is a great if you have just started with these tricks. Make sure you use one that matches your skin color in order to keep things as natural as possible. Apply a bit on your nose and you will see the difference.
6-Use Loose powder- after finishing all the steps above, use loose powder in order to mix all the contouring, bronzer, dark matt foundation and blush together.
7-Shimmer Lips-Apply shimmer on your lips and you will distract people from watching your nose. It works great.
