I have old acne scare so I use 100% pure shea butter ( you can get it from any African store) and just after 2 wks my scars are gone and my face is glowing. Remember 100% pure shea butter. Good Luck :) Seeta

My make up and hair-do is like Pamela Anderson’s. It’s very sexy. Jen looks natural, it’s suitable for a morning and a day, not for a party.

NEVER try foundation on your hand… hands are very rarely the same colour as one’s face!

Also, cocunut oil is excellent as a hair treatment. Warm a little up and work into your ends, leave for a while then rinse with shampoo.

Use a slightly darker blush below your cheekbones to create more definition.

after painting your nails, once they are touch dry, rinse them carefully under cold water to set them.

As hard as it is I wash my face every night. I then cover my face and neck with vaseline. When I wake up I just wash the vaseline off with water and do my usual lotion and foundation. My skin has a wonderful glow since I’ve started that regimen. It doesn’t cause zits, as much as you think it would!
PLUS, I’ll be 31 this year and I don’t have a wrinkle on me! No crows feet, nothing. I know that the vaseline has had something to do with that!

Wow – great tips ladies! I need to print all of these and start using them.

I use YSL Touche Eclat to cover the redness at the sides of my nose and it makes me look so much more polished. I’m not a big foundation girl and I’ve never looked good in eyeliner, so I’m happy to find something so small that makes so much difference. Oh yes and I smile to apply my blush in the right place – blush being another small thing that makes a huge difference.

i line my eyes on the insde and that makes the look not as harsh and focusesmore on the lashline than just bam! eyeline. also when i dont want a harsh look i use deep violet liquid eyeline instead of black.

I totally identify with Summer. I am prone to dry skin, and it’s the worst when I start peeling from sun exposure. Thankfully, this year I haven’t peeled at all.

Once I wash my face or step out of the shower, I immediately moisturize my face and dry skin patches with hydrating lotion. Then to seal in the moisture, I put a thin layer of vaseline over my face and dry spots.

I swear it doesn’t look greasy; instead, it makes your skin glow. Not only that, but your makeup doesn’t end up clogging your pores as much because of the layer of vaseline. But don’t forget to wash your face at the end of the day!

I just put vaseline on my teeth that way when I smile the lipstick won’t stick to my teeth….it helps a lot when you’re taking the photos…..
